If you’re like me and in college then you know that textbooks can be wicked expensive. I’m always trying to find the best deals for textbooks and I tend to rent them rather than buy them since it’s just so much cheaper.
Here is my go-to websites to rent (and occasionally buy) textbooks.
This is the first website I check.I love this website because it’s super simple to find your book and while I wait for it most of the book offer a free 7 day ebook. Plus, they always throw in some free samples and sometimes even gift cards. I once got a 20 dollar shutter fly gift card!

If you’re not looking to rent textbooks but still looking for a deal, I suggest this website. It’s full of books: novels, childrens, historical, and textbooks. I use this website to buy manga (ya know those Japanese comic books) and other novels. I’ve bought a few textbooks from here as well.

If Chegg fails to have the book I’m looking for (which is rare) or I think that I can get it cheaper elsewhere, Valore Books is usually where I find it. It’s kinda like Chegg except without the free samples, but I’ve spent 15 dollars for a book that was 50 dollars to rent other places.

This is another one of my favorites to check. They offer really great deals through Amazon. Since I am a student, I signed up for Amazon prime which is 45 dollars a year if you have a student email. So, I get all my textbooks (and anything else I order) in two days which is really nice because I know I don’t have to wait a week for my books to arrive.
