Is it possible to save money by renting access codes instead of buying? Direct Textbook has the answer

One question we’re commonly asked is whether students can rent textbook access codes to save money over buying. On the surface, it doesn’t seem as though renting access codes would be possible – they’re intended to be used once, after all, and will only work for a single user.

Want to know if you’ll get the access codes when you rent textbooks? Direct Textbook has the answer

Publishers only make access codes available to one user.
