With the Spring 2014 semester just around the corner, getting a head start on buying your textbooks really isn’t such a bad idea. In fact, it might be a great way for you to start off on the right foot – and by that we mean not procrastinating. However, you just spent countless dollars on gifts for the holidays. You might not be financially ready to dig into your pockets yet. CengageBrain has a great solution to help with that.
Show me the deals!
This week, CengageBrain is offering five dollars off your purchase of fifty dollars or more worth of textbooks. Just use coupon code 5OFF50 at CengageBrain.com…and that’s not all.
For a limited time (12/27/2013 – 1/2/2014) students can also receive 35% off rental textbooks when you use the coupon code RENT35. In the article “Benefits of Renting College Textbooks” of Yahoo! Voices, written on July 12, 2011, author Carol Bengle Gilbert shares the perks of renting textbooks.
“Renting texts is one way for college students to save money, as rentals typically cost only 33 percent to 55 percent of the price of a new text,” which comes to us from the National Association of College Stores.
More benefits of rent vs. buy
If you’re all about being environmentally friendly, renting is a solid option because the books are viable. With this, fewer books produced equals more trees saved.
Another bonus is that you won’t have to worry about being stuck with a book when you’re done using it at the end of the semester. On most occasions, once a student has completed a course, it’s easy to assume they have zero plans to read that textbook again. There really is no reason to set it on your bookshelf and allow it to collect dust over time.
Regardless of which route you take in your quest for your textbooks this semester, you are sure to find the best deals on what you need at CengageBrain.com. Don’t forget that shipping is FREE if your order is over $25 – and who wouldn’t love to have one less thing to pay for in the post-holiday season?
