My son started college this past week. It’s been rough. It’s so expensive with getting him books, a laptop, paying his tuition and everything that goes with college. Thank goodness Barnes and Noble is trying to make it a little easier on us parents. Barnes & Noble MasterCard is the best credit card for parents and college students purchasing textbooks, books, and supplies during the back-to-school season and beyond. Many colleges have a Barnes and Noble as their bookstore on campus.
