Need textbooks?

Through January 2, 2019, head over to Barnes&Noble.com where they are offering up $10 off every $100 spent on textbooks (up to $500 and excludes Marketplace Textbooks) when you use promo code STUDIOUS at checkout.

Pair this code with up to 70% savings on previously owned textbooks and free shipping on orders of $25+ for nice savings.

Don’t need to keep your textbooks?

If you only need a textbook for a short time or don’t plan to keep them, you also have the option to rent your textbooks. Choose from thousands of textbooks and rent from 60-130 days (which you can extend for up to another 125 days). Plus you get FREE return shipping with the provided labels.

    A friend just told me that she rents textbooks from amazon for very cheap!

    My daughter just graduated college and has great success renting her books from Amazon too. Great to have more than one option too because sometimes one place is out of stock.

      SO true! I remember always trying to grab my textbooks as early as possible so that I could score them before they were gone! Thanks for taking a moment to comment!

    Amazon and ThriftBooks are the best places for textbooks. Barnes and Noble is unreliable with textbooks, and their prices tend to be higher

    I just get them from chegg

    As a long time veteran in this industry… excluding marketplace textbooks means that you’d get $10 off every hundred at FULL retail value. It basically means, “This excludes every cheap textbook on the site.” Don’t do it. Total marketing scam. There are a lot of other options. I would bet that your local (if university owned) college bookstore would be cheaper than using this deal.

    Just don’t go through Biggerbooks.com aka ecampus, etc. Ordered books 11 days ago, still did not receive them! Chatted with them to have them cancelled, as my son needs them by Monday. Can only cancel 1 and do not know when the other will arrive!!! Seriously??? First year college student…they just lost my business for both my kids’ college years!

    My daughter has had great success getting textbooks on Ebay. Sometimes renting is only a dollar or two cheaper than purchasing and then she resells them on a campus buy-sell-trade group. We have found Barnes and Noble to be the highest when pricing her textbooks. No matter what textbooks are so expensive saving any amount really helps.

    I prefer to rent from Amazon. Books from Barnes and Noble are usually more expensive than anywhere else I’ve looked. They price match but it’s still adding steps to the process, why do the extra steps when you can get the books you need cheaper and faster from Amazon. My first semester back I thought I was out of time and needed my books that day so I went to Barnes and Noble, I spent more than $500 on 3 books and after the semester they only bought 1 back, never again. I’ve been renting from Amazon ever since and I haven’t spent more than $100 on ALL my books for a semester. Renting also saves me from having expensive, unwanted, unneeded books after a semester.
