You should rent if these things make sense to you:
You like saving money up front. Rental textbooks usually cost less up front.
You're fairly careful with your books. Highlighting and writing is allowed, but books need to stay in good enough condition for the next student to use.
You're organized. Rental returns are easy. But being organized helps ensure that you return the right book to the right place, on time.
You dislike buyback uncertainty. Renting textbooks covers your total cost up front, with none of the price uncertainty of selling back a purchased book.
You're OK with used books. Rentals can be new or used books, though used books can be "like new."
Renting textbooks is cheap & easy
Rent textbooks and save. It's cheap because you only pay to use the books for a semester. Fast shipping gets rented textbooks to you when you need them. And free return shipping makes returns a snap.
