TextSurf, a free online comparison site created by eCampus Ventures that helps students find better prices for textbooks, is gearing up for back-to-school season with tips, tricks and best practices for saving. The online service has saved students as much as $1,000 a year and makes it easier than ever to sell old textbooks and compare prices.

All students have to do is find the books they need on their school’s website, search TextSurf using the ISBN number or the title and compare. TextSurf compares prices from several different book retailers, to ensure that students are getting the best deals on books, and then gives students the links that they need to buy the books they need at the best prices.

“Our company is all about creating ways to make college life easier through technology,” said co-founder Dan Thibodeau. “The prices of textbooks are outrageous these days and not everyone can afford them, nor should they need to pay that much. We made it our goal to use technology to make the college experience easier and more affordable. With TextSurf, we think we’ve managed to move one step closer to doing that.”

The site also lets students enter the ISBN number of their book and view the best selling options and which sites to sell from.
