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 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.
Campus Book Rentals specializes in renting college textbooks. The do not buy and sell books, they focus solely on renting and strive to rent textbooks better than anyone else.

There is a 15-day grace period for returning your books, please check the website for more information on fees associated with late returns. There is a Loss/Damage Protection Program that is offered at checkout for your textbooks, offering you peace of mind if either one of those instances happen. Without it, you would be responsible to pay for the full price of the book if your book becomes lost or damaged.
Campus Book Rentals provides a solid return policy which is important when your class is cancelled or you decide to drop at last minute. We would have also liked more flexibility with book purchase, downloads and resell options. We did like the flexibility of the rental program.
