I’m always interested in learning another way to save money. Recently I called our local college to see about going back to take some more classes. I already have my BS degree in Piano Performance but over the past 12 years, I’ve become more involved in working with computers. So the natural step would be to go back and pursue a 2nd degree in IT. One of the expenses of going back to school is being able to afford the textbooks. Here’s a new program that allows me to save money on textbooks called Rentback.
Save Money on Textbooks
So why should you consider renting your textbooks instead of just buying used?
- save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
- free shipping both ways
- can highlight in the textbook
- -flexible renting periods
- Bonus: They donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own – to other students… which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they’d make through buyback options! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) Isn’t that awesome?!
I have never rented a textbook before, but I do know that as my nephews are getting ready to start college very soon that I am becoming more aware of how expensive textbooks are. I’m definitely going to be sharing this information with family and friends so they can find ways to save money every way possible.
Would you consider renting textbooks for your college classes? What do you think? I’d love to hear!
