Buying Vs. Renting

When I was in college (not so long ago folks!) renting text books was something that very few people knew about; the opportunity to rent text books just was not there. Poor college students were stuck spending a butt load of cash on texts that we probably didn't really want to read in the first place.

In recent years, there has been a climb in the number of companies that rent text books to college students and in turn, save those students a ton of money. I'm here to tell you that renting your text books is basically a genius move. It's incredibly easy to do and practically guaranteed to save you some money! I had the pleasure, that's right I said pleasure, of renting books for some of the last classes I took and y'all, given a choice, there is no other way I'd want get my books. has been renting books to students since 2007!
Here's what they have to offer:

- free shipping both ways
- flexible renting periods
- 30 day risk free renturns
- live customer support  can save you 40-90% off of bookstore prices. Let's take a look-see shall we?

This book here on costs $51.31 to rent for an entire semester. If you were to purchase it through Amazon or Barnes & Noble, it would cost your twice that. Fifty percent savings is pretty good, Amen? Y'all know I'm a #frugalmama!

So now you may be wondering how this works - take a look at this video:

Still got questions? Watch this! (Super funny btw)

Have you ever rented text books before?

  1. Renting text books wasn't something I ever heard about when I was in college, but I've heard it from time to time since then. Makes lots of sense. Wouldn't have worked for me with probably half my textbooks though. I'm a big underliner/highlighter/write-in-the-margins kinda girl when it comes to material I'm really interested in. But still, very cool idea!

  2. Great post, thanks for sharing!
