Update: The free shipping offer has unfortunately expired – and from what I understand the current rate is a flat $1.99 for standard UPS shipping. Sorry to get your hopes up about free shipping, but read on to learn more about how to save money on college textbook costs!
Most colleges have already started up for the spring semesters, but it isn’t too late to rent your textbooks online. Whether your school is starting a few days later or whether you just procrastinated and haven’t got the books and materials you need yet, there’s no excuse for waiting any longer!
In order to help students out even more with saving money, all textbook rentals from Chegg also include free shipping with UPS ground shipping.
So how can you take advantage of this cost-effective method of acquiring books for college? Well, all you have to do is head over to Chegg’s website and learn more about how they’ve managed to slash prices on those incredibly expensive textbooks your instructors expect you to read.
Chegg is a pretty new company, and their model of renting textbooks over the internet is quite a development from the old monopolies of campus bookstores. I wish they had been around when I was still in college, but its good to know that at least future graduating classes can have an option to pay less for their books.
And hey, if you decide you absolutely love the book and want to keep your copy – they have affordable ways for you to make that decision, too. So who doesn’t like trying something out at a low price and having the choice to keep it later for a bit more? Don’t worry, it should only take a few days for the books to arrive. If you order this weekend, you’ll probably see your texts before the next one arrives!
