Why Every University Student Should Rent Their Textbooks Online

Nov 9th 2013 at 4:50 PM

College students are always looking for ways to save money; this is one of the reasons there are cookbooks for ramen. The challenge is that they have so many expenses, some of which can be rather steep, while at the same having so little money. One of those expenses is that they need to buy textbooks for classes, but those books are rarely cheap. One option they have is used textbooks, which can be a lot cheaper, but is not a dependable system; not all textbooks go from semester to semester. Suffice to say that other alternatives have been suggested to walking into the college store and laying down a lot of money for books.

One of those options is Textbookrental.ca. The concept is relatively simple: Students rent the books from the site for a semester and then return them. As long as the books returned are in the same condition as when the student received them, the student will not charged for the books. This process can save a student up to 75% per semester, making a huge difference in their semester budgets. That can make a huge difference in what the student can buy for food and what kind of fun he can have. To the average college student that makes a major difference in how they approach the semester when he is planning it out.

There are some limitations of course. The biggest one is that the books must be kept in the same condition as they were delivered or Textbookrental.ca will charge full price for the books. Sales tax also applies, which can be a consideration for those with tight budgets, but that is a minor consideration compared to the possible savings. However, that pretty much sums up the limitations; there are some plusses as well. For example, if a student receives the wrong books, those books can be easily traded in for the right ones, provided the error is caught within fifteen days. There is also the ambassador program, where a student can receive money for referring other students to Textbookrental.ca. This is clearly one of the best ways to buy textbooks online and you can also click on www.facebook.com/textbookrentalcanada to get more offers from their Facebook page.

Used textbooks are not the only way students can save money on textbooks. There are a number of ways to save money when a student goes to buy textbooks; he just needs to look around. There are a number of different options available, ranging from sites that track down hard to find textbooks to online booksellers. Some sites even offer PDF versions of many texts, but they sometimes cost as much as the paper version. In the meantime, renting textbooks is arguably one of the best options: It gives you the books and you do not need to worry about the books after the semester, making it a winning scenario all-around.
