Getting a deal on textbooks is always exciting. Just today, the textbook rental service Chegg is offering a cool deal. If you download their free iPhone App, you get a 10% discount on any book rental before August 31st with the coupon code “MOBILE”. The app helps expedite the search process, by letting you find the book you want to rent simply by scanning the book’s bar code with your phone. If you don’t have a bar code handy, you can search by ISBN, title or author’s name.
With or without the extra 10 percent off, renting books is a great alternative to buying new textbooks. It’s also a good choice if you want to save but aren’t into e-textbooks, the other up-and-coming cheaper textbook option. Not only can you rent textbooks from Chegg.com, they also make selling books back easy. Just enter the ISBNs for an estimate, send in your books, and you’ll get paid when Chegg receives them.
