Now that school is back in session, you undoubtedly have a mile-long list of textbooks to buy. But before you rush over to your campus bookstore and pay whatever crazy prices they’re charging, consider our current favorite alternative.
We’ve been Barnes & Noble fans for years but they’ve recently upped their textbook game in a big way. Read on to learn how buying, selling, and renting textbooks works at Barnes & Noble – plus see the amazing cash-saving offers they have happening right now. You’re welcome in advance.
Buying New Textbooks… Up to 30% Off
Like most students, we often buy our textbooks new. This is a great option if you anticipate keeping the book after graduation or like to underline or write in the margins.
If this is your preference, Barnes & Noble has a huge selection of new textbooks available at truly amazing prices. Right now, new textbooks are listed up to 30% off their sticker price plus they are offering FREE SHIPPING on all new textbook orders over $25!
Used textbooks? NBD, some just 90% off.
Unlike many other used textbook sources we’ve used, Barnes & Noble sells only the highest-quality used books – no battered old books with missing pages and highlighter marks everywhere.
The best part? Some of their used textbooks are listed at 90% off their sticker price! It never gets better than that for a high quality used book.
Flexible Textbook Rental Options
If you prefer to rent your books instead of buying, Barnes & Noble has thousands of textbooks available to rent with flexible rental periods up to 130 days, with the option to extend or purchase your book anytime during the rental period. They even offer FREE return shipping on all rentals.
Selling Textbooks for Cash with Barnes & Noble
Finally, you may not know (we didn’t!) that Barnes & Noble has a fantastic book-selling program.
At the end of the semester, if your textbooks are still in good condition, you can sell your books back to Barnes & Noble for cash. They even provide you with a prepaid label to make it super easy.
