This afternoon we will be investigating college textbooks. Is there any cheaper way than buying new textbooks everytime your college-goer/s needs some? Let's investigate this together! Grab your magnifying glass and your flashlight and we'll get started!
1. While on the first part of this mission, I discovered that your first option is renting a textbook. Did you know that you can rent textbooks? There are some GREAT perks to renting textbooks. A few of them are that you can highlight in the textbooks that you rent, there are flexible renting times, you can save 40-90% off of regular prices at a bookstore, and through CampusBookRentals shipping is free, both ways. They also make a donation to Operation Smile for every textbook rented! Operation Smile is a "international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives"
2. While investigating all of the possibilities I also uncovered another option, which is, buying textbooks every time you start a new class. The best part about buying your own, is that when you are done with them, you can rent your textbooks to other students. CampusBookRentals.com has a new program where you can do just that - rent your old textbooks to students - it's called RentBack! You can make 2-4x the amount of money you would get for just selling your textbooks (if you can find a buyer!) when you are done with them. Check out the video about it below!
Well, what do you think? Would you go with renting textbooks, or buy your own and then rent those out to other students? Leave a comment and let us know!
