Perks of Renting Textbooks

College is expensive and saving money any way you can is a priority for nearly all students. Knetbooks has been saving students money since 2011 by offering textbook rentals that save them up to 85% off. You may already take advantage of renting textbooks from Knetbooks or you may be trying to decide if you want to give it a try. Let’s review some of the awesome perks of renting textbooks.

Renting Textbooks Saves You Money

Perks of Renting Textbooks

We covered this important benefit of renting textbooks in the introduction briefly but let’s give you an example. Let’s say you are taking a biology course that you will not need to keep the book for after the class is over. One of the most frequently used biology books in colleges across the nation on average sells for $120+ for a used copy and the list price is around $180. You can rent that same textbook from Knetbooks for around $60 and keep it for an entire semester’s length. That’s roughly 50% cheaper than buying the used copy and up to 70% cheaper than buying it new. Opting to rent your textbooks can save you hundreds of dollars each semester.

Renting Textbooks is Simple

Perks of Renting Textbooks

Gone are the days where you have to stand in long lines at the campus bookstore to order and pick up your textbooks. You can order anything you need online with the click of a button while you’re lounging in your pajamas. It’s a bonus if the company offers free shipping too (psst..Knetbooks does!). Knetbooks is easy to navigate to find what you’re looking for. Simply search for the textbooks you need by ISBN, title or author, add what you need to your cart and check out. Every order ships free on Knetbooks and you also are provided a prepaid return label in your account to send back your rental before it’s due date.  What you see is what you get with Knetbooks and what you get is cheap college textbook rentals!

Renting Textbooks is Easy Going

Perks of Renting Textbooks

Students don’t always know what to expect from all their classes at the beginning of the semester. College is unpredictable and Knetbooks is here to make it as easy as possible to help you through those times. When you rent your textbooks from Knetbooks you are not locked into your due date. If you end up needing your textbook for longer than you initially thought, you can extend your rental in your account at any time before your due date. If you need to keep the book for a future class, you also have the option to purchase your textbook rental in your account and that can be done anytime before your rental is due back as well.

Now that you know some of the awesome perks of renting your college textbooks, you can make an informed decision on whether or not you want to give renting a try. Thank you for taking the time to read this blog. Apply coupon PERKS to save $3 off your next Knetbooks order of $35+.

#MFH (My Favorite Hashtag)

Being a social media guru I always like to check out what is trending on Twitter each morning and get a good laugh or some extra knowledge in where I can.  Sometimes complete strangers, established or not, on Twitter can entertain me for a few moments.  Check out this example of a pretty good trending hashtag on Twitter this week that gave me some chuckles in my morning read.  The hashtag was inspired by the twitter account @midnight: late night game show thing hosted by @nerdist on @ComedyCentral


If you have seen the movie you know why this is very sick, sad and quite frankly…still funny.

Oh…so they went to college? Sounds about right. 

Where is the fun in that?

Leave me a comment or tweet @knetbooks using the hashtag #MFH to tell us your favorite hashtag and we will feature you in a future blog! Happy Friday…..enjoy your weekend 🙂
