Buying vs. Renting Textbooks



We all know that acquiring your college textbooks can put a significant dent in your wallet.  A common question for students is, “Should I buy or rent my textbooks?”  Below we have laid out the pros and cons of each, to help you make the decision that is right for you.



When you rent a book, you pay a fee to rent the book for a specific time frame.  When time  is up, print out a prepaid shipping label, and mail the book back to the merchant without any shipping charges to you.





When buying a textbook, you have the choice to buy it used or new.  Used books can be substantially cheaper than new books.



 The good news is you have a choice and can make that choice per book depending upon each individual circumstance.
