TEXTBOOKS

Textbooks has created a website that allows the college student to find the right textbook at the right price, as easily as possible. With over 9 million textbooks to choose from and with up to 90% savings, Textbooks is a competitive company for purchasing college textbooks.

You're not required to have a membership to purchase books from Textbooks. You simply select your textbook and drop it in your shopping cart. If it's over $25, they will ship to you for free. When you're done with your book, Textbooks will buy it back and give you cash.

If you aren't interested in actually purchasing your college textbook, but want to rent it instead, Textbooks offers that option as well. You can rent your college textbook for the whole semester (125 days), the quarter (85 days), or 60 days. You can check out the website for more information about the fees associated with renting textbooks.

Textbooks also offers the option of downloading your textbooks through eTexts. eTexts are non-refundable, so you want to make sure you need the college textbook before downloading it.

If you purchase your college textbook through Textbooks, you have up to 30 days from the date on your shipment receipt to return any unused book in its original packaging for a refund. Textbooks believes in beating the competition in pricing through their Best Price Guarantee. Essentially, if you find another company directly selling the college textbook for a lower price, they'll match it - guaranteed. If you see a lower price being offered directly from another company within 24 hours of ordering from Textbooks, they'll refund you the difference.

Textbooks does a great job of offering a huge selection of college textbooks online to allow students to save money. Whether you want to buy, sell, rent, or download your college textbooks, Textbooks can meet your needs.

CHEGG

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.

College Textbooks

To help you find the Best College Textbooks, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Textbooks and Chegg.

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.

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!
