We have some good news and some bad news. First the bad news, which you were probably already aware of, textbooks are an every growing part of the expense of college. Now the the good news, competition in the online used and rental textbook market can help you save 50-90% on your books.

To help you stretch your book buying dollar we put together these 5 textbook savings tips.

1. Rent textbooks

Online textbook rentals are gaining popularity each term. Why? The rental process is easy and much less money upfront. Renting is typically 50% less than the bookstore's used book price. Rental companies offer free return shipping and the packaging to return your book. You no longer have to wait in long lines at the end of the term or semester to sell your book back. Instead you can get the savings up front and simply drop the book off at a postal center in the rental companies prepaid shipping package.

2. Get eTextbooks
