Rent College Textbooks and Save Money

Updated on April 4, 2013

RENTING COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY TEXTBOOKS IS ECONOMICALLY WISE!

When I went to College, the cost of college books was the most expensive part of the schooling.

Back in the 80's each semester could cost several $hundred just in books. I had a difficult time affording this while I was working full time and raising a family.

I went to Wright State University and they had a bookstore where you could buy used books at a discount. Those books, however, were not always available and some of the professors required new editions.

College costs continue to rise. Many students have a very limited budget and to make sure all expenses are covered, they are doing everything they can to cut costs. A new solution in saving large amounts of of money that I did not have is to rent textbooks. Many are opting to rent these days instead of purchasing very expensive new textbooks.

I hope you enjoy this website and please leave some comments at the bottom of the page. Thanks for visiting!

Many are using Chegg.com as the premiere textbook rental company that Bloomberg news endorsed and is one of the fastest growing companies. A person can use Chegg to rent their textbooks at substantial savings over purchasing. The company was launched in 2007 and continues to achieve substantial growth. As of 2010, almost 6,500 campuses, worldwide, used the service.

In the first month of 2009, Chegg had saved more money on textbooks than the whole year of 2008. One of the biggest reasons they are successful is because you can return a book for any reason and they will guarantee it. If you decide not to remain in a course and drop, they will refund the total rental cost. Customer service for Chegg is located in the USA so you don’t need to worry about trying to understand the representatives when you call them.

In these tough economic times, why pay more than you need to? Chegg will give you the textbook in the edition you need at a fraction of the price it would cost to purchase the book. Chegg rentals are being used by students all over the USA!

      I really like the image of Kermit the Frog in a suit. That was cute. Thank you once again for blessing my lens, Why You Should Become a Christian? That was my first Squid Angel blessing, so it meant a lot. I have since featured you on that lens. Thank you. God bless!

      Instead of renting books, go to http://www.cheapesttextbooks.com and enjoy their amazing prices and great shipping. I found them last year and will never use another site.

      Renting is definitely a great idea! I tend to buy steeply discounted cheapest textbooks from http://www.cheapesttextbooks.com, so I save a lot of money there...and I can sell them back on the same site, which is nice.

      I think it is great that Chegg is trying to help the environment, but as a company I did not like their performance when I ordered a book through them. They sent me my book late and I later found out that I could have rented the book for a lower price at another company. Now I choose to use eCampus.com and I have been incredibly happy with their company. They have the lowest prices and they make the whole rental process very easy for busy students!
