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.

Book Byte

Options:

Buy New or Used

Book Byte started in 1999 as a home-based enterprise and prides itself today in still maintaining a family-style approach. Their motto is to provide you as the customer fast, honest and reliable service. We felt the "fast" was a little far stretched.

When purchasing your book, simply search for it online, select new or used (if available), add it to your cart and you should have it at your doorstep between 4-14 business days. This is a little longer than some of the other companies, so make sure you plan ahead to ensure you have your textbooks in time for your class.

If some reason you do not need your textbook, you have 14-days from the date you receive the book to return it to Book Byte for a refund, less shipping charges. If you received the wrong book and it was Book Byte's error you will receive a full refund, including shipping charges. Books must be in the same condition that you received them. Both new and used textbooks can be returned within 14-days.

When you have finished using your textbook, Book Byte will buy the book back from you. By simply logging on their website, inputting your ISBN number and Book Byte will give you a quote immediately. If you decide to sell your book back to Book Byte, they will pay the shipping costs to have the book sent to them. They will also send you your payment within 1 day of processing the transaction.

Overall, we felt this company lacked the selection, speed and options that most customers would be looking for. If you are really looking to save on book costs you'll want to choose a higher ranked company that provides rentals.

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!
