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.

  1. Hi, I rented a textbook this past semester and you’ll extended my rental but school hasn’t started back yet. I wanted to purchase my textbook. It has some very good and resourceful information. I wasn’t able to get my shipment receipt for today because it is snowing here. I wanted to know if you have any special discounts yet on your rentals if someone would like to purchase or if I can get an extension from your company? Please let me know the price school starts again next week. I should have some funds once I find out when our monies will be available to us. I greatly appreciate your assistance upon this matter. Sincerely, Ms Iris L Rankin – Student

    Based of this statement mentioned. I was wondering what the return policy was if I rent this book and later find out I do not actually need it? Do I have a certain amount of days I get to return the book for a refund?

    1. Hi Brooke,

      With, you can return rentals for 25 days based on the original ship date. To return your item, please log into your account and print the UPS shipping label. Once we receive your rental, it will go through our check in process, typically lasting 1 week, before your refund is issued. Please keep in mind a 10% restocking fee is applied to all returns and we do not refund the original shipping cost.

      Thank you
