Textbook Tip

Another new semester, another huge bill for textbooks… Usually I don’t use Wesleying to promote stuff, but I have saved a lot of money and time by using a website that does the textbook comparison shopping for you, bigwords.com.  You don’t buy books from the website itself, it searches Amazon, Barnes and Noble and all the other bookstore websites to find the best deal (including shipping, coupons, etc.).  It saves your searches and directs you at the end to the cheapest deals for new and used books.  I saved over $120 on one textbook alone.  I think I’m (almost) ready for activities more intellectually taxing than analyzing Jersey Shore, hope you are all too!

    Just went to Broad Street books & saw that in some cases they are selling used books for the same price you can get them new on line. Just saying.

    4: The book isn’t always going to be used by people in the next semester if the class is only taught once a year or once every couple of years.

    (But yes, if you can, sell to other students.)

    Question – why sell books back to Broadstreet when you can just sell them to other students directly?

    Question – Will Broadstreet bookstore buy back textbooks at the end of the semester if you didn’t get them from there?

    I also highly recommend chegg.com, where you can rent textbooks by the year/semester. They provide the shipping label for when you need to send the books back, and i’ve saved a lot using them.
