Tips on Buying Used TextbooksMore Savings Tips
Many new college textbooks cost $65-140 each. The expense becomes even greater when student loan money is used to purchase them; that cost has to be paid back with interest. During four years of college, this can easily add up to thousands of dollars. One of the best ways for students to save money is to buy used textbooks.
Such books are available from a variety of sources, including stores and online merchants. It's not uncommon for students to spend 20-60% less on used textbooks. The U.S. Postal Service's Media Mail shipping option makes it affordable to purchase heavy textbooks from online retailers - and when purchased from sellers in nearby states shipping time is much faster.
SlugBooks offers a convenient way to compare the prices on used textbooks against several different websites, plus a local exchange just for your school. When visitors select a textbook title and edition, it displays a side-by-side comparison table of companies that offer the book. It also supplies coupon codes for discounts at certain websites.
