You probably don’t need to hang onto that freshman level history book for the rest of your life nor do you want to pay a lot of money for it to sit in the back of your closet for years. This is where renting can be a great option!
Renting textbooks is just like renting movies or sporting equipment. When you rent a textbook, you pay a discounted price to use the book you need for the semester. This allows you to pay less up front but still use the textbook you need. When you’re done, you just return the book back to the rental company!
Do keep in mind that since you are renting, the book needs to be returned in a reusable condition. In addition, it is important to return your books by their due date to avoid any late fees.
