It’s week two now, and the lines are STILL ridiculous at the Co-op! So it’s time for me to spread the word and show you how simple it is to skip the queue and save some time. All you have to do is to order your things, pay for it online, then head in and collect them at the front door!

How simple is that?

Here is how you can order your books and collect them in store.

1. Go to the Co-op website and search for your book

Fill in the details and hit search. FYI: When selecting university, 2 melbourne uni options will pop up. (1) University of Melbourne and (2) University of Melbourne – Legal/Medical. The first one is the one next to Baillieu, and the second one is in Alan Gilbert.

2. Then when you hit search, it should pop up whatever materials are required for that subject

I need to get my prac manual for ecology, which is less than $5 this semester! What a win! So click on ‘Add to Basket’ and ‘Proceed to Checkout’.

3. It will then prompt you to sign in or register

Don’t forget that the co-op membership is worth it! $20 for a lifetime membership and discounts throughout the store.  The co-op sells basically everything, so you will get discounts from things like jigsaw puzzles, scarves, laptop bags etc. It’s amazing what you can find in there! Plus, when you sign up, you also get a $5 voucher to use. More info about membership, click here!

4. Then review your order, then hit ‘Checkout’Screen Shot 2013-08-06 at 12.09.58 AM

5. Time to pay! Either enter your credit card details or via paypal

All this is super simple, and super quick. So WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU WAIT IN LINE EVER AGAIN AT THE CO-OP!?

Just do it all online and pick it up at the door :)


p.s. No, I was not asked by the co-op nor am I getting paid in anyway to endorse them! I’m just saving you guys the trouble of queuing up and wasting time!
