Renting Textbooks Can Help Students Save
Increasingly, parents and students are looking for smart ways to save on college expenses—and renting textbooks can often help them
do just that.
(NAPSI)—Renting is the new normal. Increasingly, consumers are turning to renting over buying for everything from homes to cars, to designer handbags, jewelry, bridal gowns and now—even textbooks.
This smart alternative lets consumers save money by paying for just what they need without the long-term burden of ownership.
In the case of college textbooks, renting can help parents and students stretch their budgets for college-related expenses. Given that the average student at a four-year public college can expect to pay $1,100 a year on textbooks and materials, this is welcome news.
How the Process Works
Saving money on textbook rentals does not have to be a long and painful process thanks to a website designed to be simple, straightforward and efficient to use. It provides students with access to textbooks at savings of nearly 85 percent compared to the price of new books. It even offers a discount when more than three books are rented.
By visiting the site called collegebookrenter.com (CBR), students are able to rent or buy their entire course load of books online. They also have the option of applying rental costs toward the purchase of a book if they are inspired to do so once courses have gotten under way-a flexible option designed to benefit students still searching for their major or career path.
Their Buyback Policy
To make things even easier, collegebookrenter.com will buy back textbooks 365 days a year. Students can sell college textbooks-even if they were purchased from another source—for cash or receive a credit toward future textbook rentals or purchases. Plus, it offers fast, secure payments and free shipping on your textbook buyback, so students can spend their cash on other important things.
A Deep Inventory
CBR is designed to serve the full spectrum of higher education students. Students of all kinds-college, graduate, part-time and professional-can choose the textbook solution that works best for their personal needs with a wide array of options for rent or purchase, flexible time frames and bundled discounts. The website also offers in-house customer service, including a quick “click to chat” option, as well as live phone support.
“I’m always looking for ways to save money,” said Taylor Rinehart, a Florida State University senior. “After comparing prices, using collegebookrenter.com has always been the cheaper option and renting books online is easier than waiting in long lines at the bookstore.”
