College students don't have to spend a fortune on textbooks that they will re-sell later at the university bookstore for half the price. GetTextbooks.com now can connect students with book buyers offering premium prices that are much higher than college bookstores.
In fact, recent data shows that students who buy and sell books on GetTextbooks.com end up spending just a few dollars per book. The website allows students to compare prices for buying books and is now one of the leading textbook comparison sites in the country. Now students can get quotes on textbook values, send in the books via postage-paid envelopes to the selected company and receive the money via check, Paypal or Visa cash card in just a few days.
Although textbook rentals have become the latest fad in saving money, the cheapest option is still buying the books and then reselling them at the end of the semester.
"Textbooks can really end up costing students a small fortune if they don't shop around and shop smart," said Get Textbooks Founder Jeremy Jung. "We've created a place where they can buy textbooks at a low price and sell them at a premium. It's a win-win situation for everyone."
GetTextbooks.com was founded in 2003 by a resourceful college student. Now, seven years later, the site offers new and used standard U.S. edition textbooks, while also including money-saving alternatives like international editions. Students can shop for textbooks online from hundreds of stores, thousands of merchants and millions of books. GetTexbooks.com includes tax and shipping and even calculates coupons.
