We are six weeks away from Black Friday 2009, but Walmart and Amazon already have a little price war going on that you should not miss out on.
According to the Wall Street Journal (Subscription) Walmart started challenging Amazon on $10 prices for hot new pre-order hardcover book titles.
Well, Amazon hit back and also lowered the pricing of the same books and we are currently already at $9 for books including Stephen King's Under The Dome, John Grisham's Ford Country or James Patterson's I, Alex Cross.

These $9 book deals are only available at Walmart online and not in stores. Walmart wants to specifically attack Amazon in the online shopping arena.
Currently Walmart has the better deal as their $9 book deals have free shipping. On Amazon you still need to get over the $25 amount to get free shipping. It needs to be seen if $9 and free shipping is the last offer on the 10 books listed below.
You can check Walmart and Amazon for each book listed below with the link below on the current prices. Update: Walmart Dropped Prices further.
