Save On Discount Textbooks & Used Textbooks!
Tips For Saving On Textbooks
Tip #1 Used textbooks cost less.
Before purchasing a new textbook, try to find used textbooks.
Tip # 2 Older editions cost even less.
Ask your instructor if a previous edition of the text is acceptable. It could mean the difference between $175 for a new textbook and $15 for a used textbook!
Tip #3 Reduce your shipping costs.
Try to purchase multiple textbooks from the same bookseller. Use our multiple textbook search above to find the best possible combo of price and shipping on several textbooks at once.
Tip #4 Order early.
Don't wait until the last minute to order new or used textbooks. There is no guarantee you will get your textbooks in time. Plan ahead!
Tip #5 Order local.
Whenever possible, order your discount textbooks from booksellers close to you. Not only will this help you save on shipping, but you will get your textbooks much quicker.
Tip #6 Ask the bookseller.
If you are unsure about a textbook's title, edition, or whether it comes with any additional components, such as teachers' modules, or cd-rom software, contact the bookseller directly and ask!
Tip #7 Sell last semester's textbooks.
Get cash for your used textbooks! It's easy, fast and we'll give you a prepaid shipping label. Buying and selling back used textbooks may be cheaper than renting!
