If you've stood in line at the college bookstore at the start of any college semester,you know the hassle of buying college textbooks. A semester's worth of college textbooks can cost hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars, hitting that bank account really hard.

However, a whole world of cost saving opportunity awaits on the internet today. Many college students are taking advantage of online college textbook stores. College textbooks can easily be purchased online for much less cost than you can find in a bookstore. College students can enjoy even bigger savings by renting college textbooks, buying used college textbooks, or even purchasing downloaded versions of college textbooks.

Chegg

CHEGG

Options:

Rent, Resell

Chegg was founded in 2007, has been used by 18.4 million college students nationwide on 6,400 campuses. With over 4.2 million titles in their library, finding your specific book should not be a problem. For a student who rents all their books through Chegg, they saved on average $500 or more per year. Chegg has already helped save college students over $240 million dollars. Through a partnership with American Forests' Global ReLeaf program, every time a book a student orders a book from Chegg a tree is planted on their behalf. Chegg also offers the option to sell your used textbooks via their website, check out the website for more information.

Chegg offers three rental lengths: 60 days, quarter, and semester. There are no monthly fees, just the price of book rental. The due date is displayed when you are searching for your book and can be confirmed when you check out. If for some reason the rental due date is before the end of your semester, please contact Chegg and they will extend your rental. Books do not have to be received back to Chegg by your due date, the due date is the last day that your package can be dropped off and scanned at a UPS store or drop box. Remember, books that are dropped off on the weekend won't be scanned until Monday, so plan accordingly.

If the book is not received back by the due date, an automatic 15-day extension will be added to your account, you can select a longer extension period, appropriate fees will be applied. Fees vary per book, you must log into your account for more information about the fees assessed. If the book has not been received after the 15-day extension, you will be charged the full replacement fee and the book is yours to keep.

A 30-day money back guarantee is offered. Unopened, unused book must be scanned in at a UPS store within 30 days from the purchase date. Refunds do not include shipping and handling for the book sent, and $5 per book fee ($10 maximum) will be assessed for the return shipping.

Chegg is a solid choice if you are only interested in renting your college textbooks. We liked the flexible rental programs but wished they had purchase and download options to meet more students needs.

eCampus

E CAMPUS

Visit Site

Options:

Rent, Download, Sell

eCampus has one of the most diverse online selection of textbook options including purchasing new, used and digital textbooks from eCampus directly; buying from sellers on their student marketplace, or simply renting your textbooks for the semester. You are also able to sell your used books through their textbook buyback program.

Buying, selling and renting textbooks directly from eCampus is a very similar process to the other companies reviewed. Find your textbooks by easily searching with the ISBN number, select New, Used or Rental, add the book to your cart, select your shipping preference (Free ground shipping for orders over $59), checkout and receive your books within a week. If you are selling your book, input your ISBN number in their system, they will provide you a quote and if you choose to sell through them, they will ship the book for free. Check the website for more details associated with buying, renting, and selling textbooks.

Books that are purchased through eCampus may be returned within 30-days of the shipment date for a refund (less shipping charges and a 10% restocking fee). Rental textbooks maybe be returned within 15-days of shipment for a refund less the same fees as purchased textbooks.

If you choose to sell through the Marketplace, your books become available for purchase through the eCampus website. eCampus will claim 15% of the sale when a book sells. In addition to the price of your book you will also receive a shipping credit to help cover your cost of shipping the book.

Books purchased through the Marketplace cannot be returned to eCampus. You must contact the seller directly through the website to see if returning the book is an option.

eCampus reminded us a bit of a textbook garage sale of sorts. With the busy life of a student, eCampus presents some challenges and costs when a class is cancelled or dropped. The restocking fee was expensive and could add up if the book was expensive. Selecting a higher ranked provider will create less stress when selling back or returning.

If you're interested in saving money, online college textbook stores are the way to go. However, not all college textbook stores offer the same options, and some have a lot of fine print in their rental contracts that you may not notice.

There are a number of factors you should consider before making your next college textbook purchase. Some of these include:

  • Selection. Will you find the college textbook you're looking for quickly?
  • Return Policy. Can you end your college textbook rental agreement or return the textbook if the class is cancelled or dropped?
  • Options. Will you be able to rent, purchase, or sell your college textbooks as needed?
  • Prices. How do the college textbook rental and purchase prices compare to the competition?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best College Textbook stores available today. We hope these reviews help you save time and money finding the right college textbooks!
