Rent your Textbooks!

I wish I would have known about this earlier. Last semester we had no idea how we were going to pay for Sammy's books  until one of his classmates mentioned that there are websites where you can rent textbooks. Some sites provide free shipping both ways! For the total one of Sammy's books would've cost, we rented 2 books and bought 1. Check out DealOz.com which is like a airfare comparison site except for textbooks etc. It compares prices to rent, buy used, and buy new. We had luck with Bookrenters.com, and purchased a book on Amazon.com. DealOz.com also gives you the option to sell your books as well. Don't forget you can always check Half.com and Craigslist.

I agree that it's a great option to rent textbooks online; it can save a lot of money and is definitely less of a hassle. I can definitely see online textbook rental becoming an increasingly popular option.
