“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” Ok, maybe not. But starting a new semester means time to buy new, expensive textbooks. Luckily, I have some tips for you on how to save money on books so that you can have extra money for movies, food or gas.
1.Ask friends who have already taken the class
If you know friends who have already taken the class, ask if they still have their old books and see if they will sell them to you for a discounted price, or if they’re really nice, for free.
2. Check the library
Sometimes the library has the books that you need for class. Check your campus library and your city library to see if they have them. You won’t be able to keep it for the whole semester but sometimes you don’t really use the book for the entire semester anyway,
3. Use Chegg
I know I’ve mentioned Chegg plenty of times before, but that is because I love it and I use it often. They offer competitive rates on books, and I even have discounts for you! If this is your first time using Chegg you can get 15% off by following this link and signing up with your .edu email address. If it is not your first time using Chegg you can use this link and entering the promo code WOWCHEGGTHX at checkout.
Also, once you get those books you can receive help through Chegg’s tutoring services. Click here to start a free trial.
