Textbook Rental (Now Featuring New Buyout Option)
Not sure if you should rent? Rent anyway. Now you have nothing to lose!
Now you have two options:
OPTION 1: Rent It and Return It:
Save up to 70% with textbook rentals (and even 80% with a couple of titles).
You pick up your books, use them (including highlighting text, writing notes), and return the books before the due date, which is usually after final exams.
OPTION 2: Buy It Out:
Keep the book by paying the difference between the rental price and the purchase price.
You can rent in store or online, all you need is your student I.D. and a valid credit card (with an expiry date beyond the end of the rental period) for us to hold securely on file.
Check out our rental faq page or in store for all of the details!
Buy Used Textbooks & Save
We have dramatically increased the amount of used textbooks we have available and we carry more used books than ever before. In fact, over half of our titles are available in used books (at least for now until they sell). Look for the yellow "Used" sticker on the textbook spine in store or search your course list using the search engine at the top of this page.
