Textbooks! – It’s that time of year again

Picture came from Ourtime.org

It comes about twice a year at the beginning of each semester. “Ahh I need to buy my books and it’s breaking my wallet!!!!” Fortunately schools need to provide the Higher Education Opportunity Act schools must provide information on the textbooks including the coveted ISBN number.

This means students don’t have to break their wallets if they plan and buy their books early enough – leaving time for mail delivery.

Also ask upper classmen friends. I’ve had several awesome ones who gave me a discount or let me use it for the semester for free. Also some organizations on campus might have a textbook lending library for its members.

Every bit helps. Some great sites to save yourself some moolah are:

  • http://www.half.ebay.com/
  • amazon.com
    (with your .edu you can get amazon student prime for 2-day free shipping for 6 months)
  • ebay.com
  • Chegg.com (especially for those who like to rent)
  • The Amazon Kindle app for the PC is free – many books are cheaper electronically. So if you don’t mind reading from the computer the prices are great and it’s instantly delivered. Some smart phones will also let you read your books too.

Some sites even let you compare prices:
