I have three kids in college right now and have have been shocked at the cost of textbooks. It costs hundreds of dollars each semester just to buy books! Sometimes the books can be resold; sometimes not.
Did you know that you can rent textbooks? This is a great option for a book that will be used for a short time. Several sites offer this option. If you are interested in looking into book rental, My Coupons Textbook Rental is a good place to start because this site has gathered various coupon codes for free shipping or discounts for 8-10 different companies that rent textbooks. I browsed a couple of the sites and found that you can rent a textbook for about 1/3 of the list price. It seems that you could come out ahead financially and save effort over buying and reselling books yourself. Also, I know my kids have run into the situation where the required textbooks have been updated, making their “old” books obsolete and un-sellable. Renting will eliminate that risk.
All of the coupon codes and information provided at at MyCoupons is free!
I will definitely be passing on this information to my kids!
