Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) February 27, 2012
Students looking for a faster way to great deals on textbooks should look no further than Textbooks.org. The company re-launched its website this month to offer consumers an easier way to purchase low-cost books.
“We’ve kept the site design simple,” said Steven Kennedy, founder of Textbooks.org. “We want our clients to get the books they need without distraction.”
The redesigned homepage does the trick with a “can’t-miss” search bar where visitors can peruse college textbooks sold at more than 45 booksellers from around the country.
“We really save students up to 95 percent on college texts,” Kennedy added.
Textbooks.org compares prices of books sold at such sites Amazon, Half.com and BarnesandNoble.com, but it also scours the internet for the best book rental offers. The website then compares those numbers and presents a "Summary of Lowest Prices" for the price of a book and the price of a rental alternative.
Customers are not bombarded with advertising images or promotional pop ups. Instead, the site clearly marks coupon codes so that clients can receive additional discounts and free shipping from select bookstores. For students eager to get the best deals, the site also provides the option of signing up for an email newsletter for alerts of upcoming offers.
Textbooks.org has also maintained its popular blog, highlighting services provided by both large, chain retailers and local textbook stores around that country. In February alone the blog profiled more than two dozen bookstores in 16 states, including Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, New York, Indiana, Tennessee, Texas, North Carolina, West Virginia, Florida, Alabama, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Wisconsin. These postings not only provide information about book deals, but they also give students additional information about college academic and athletic opportunities.
Although many students have already purchased textbooks for the semester, Kennedy said they shouldn’t hesitate to visit Textbooks.org in March in preparation for book buy-back season.
“It’s never too early to see how you can get the best financial return on your used books,” he said.
Working to be the best resource for students shopping for cheap textbooks, the site has helped thousands save time and money buying and renting college textbooks.
