How To Save Money on UNM College Textbooks

Updated on June 10, 2015

Saving Money On College Textbooks

I am currently a college student at the University of New Mexico (UNM), and I have consistently noticed how expensive college textbooks are each semester. So I started to look for other ways to save money on college textbooks and to my surprise, I have found a way to save a lot of money when buying textbooks. In fact, most of the time I don't even need to purchase textbooks - I just rent them at the Campus Book Rental website. If you're a college student or if your just trying to save money on textbooks, then it would be a good idea to check out their website and see how much money they can save you.

Last semester, my textbooks would have cost me about $400 for 4 classes, and when I used the website listed above I was able to save over $200 and I only paid $160 for 4 textbooks. That really helped me a lot when I needed to buy a new laptop for my college classes. If there is one thing that is really frustrating to me, its going to the UNM Bookstore or other college campus bookstores and they charge you insane prices for textbooks. In fact, even buying used textbooks has become very expensive for college students and many times the deal is not as great as it seems.

Tired of Paying Too Much For College Textbooks

If your tired of paying too much for college textbooks, just know that there are other ways to save money when buying textbooks. Feel free to check out the site below, and type in the ISBN number or title of the book and you'll see that it is much cheaper to rent college textbooks. This is especially true when you are selling your book back to the bookstore during the "Book Buyback Weeks" and the book store only gives you like $20 book back for a book that cost you around $200.00. Then there are also times where they wont buy back your book at all, even if your book is only a year old. Its very reassuring that there are other ways to buy college textbooks, rather than buying them at a college bookstore.
