Students Compare Prices to Find the Cheapest College Textbooks

With one simple search, college students can now compare prices on new, used, and rental textbooks from nearly 30 textbook sellers online.

Gainesville, Florida (PRWEB) August 02, 2011

While many students just walk down the street to the campus bookstore each semester, financially savvy ones turn to the internet to find the best deals on college textbooks. With one simple search, college students can now compare prices on new, used, and rental textbooks from nearly 30 textbook sellers online at the recently updated CollegeTextbooks.net.

The website CollegeTextbooks.net was created by Steven Kennedy, who was tired of watching his friends waste money by paying retail prices for textbooks each semester. The solution was to buy cheap textbooks online, but searching around to compare prices and shipping costs at multiple booksellers could take hours. Kennedy envisioned one simple search that would quickly show prices for textbooks from all the major textbook sellers on one page. He worked hard to make this vision a reality, and now students can compare textbook prices to determine the best deal in seconds at CollegeTextbooks.net.

Kennedy's website shows a "Summary of Lowest Prices" for new, used, international, e-book, and rental textbooks so students can quickly identify the best deals. The website also displays special coupon codes for select retailers so students can save up to 25% off listed prices. CollegeTextbooks.net's Facebook fan page for college textbooks is growing rapidly.

The website solves another problem as well. Students must figure out what to do with their old textbooks after each course. Seeing an opportunity to help students make money with their unwanted textbooks, Kennedy added a special search to CollegeTextbooks.net that displays buyback offers from multiple textbook stores online. This search tool provides students with textbook resale options across the country.

College students no longer have to rely on local booksellers for their textbook needs. With overnight shipping options and millions of books in stock, online textbook stores provide money-saving options for students that their parents did not have 30 years ago. CollegeTextbooks.net offers a free price comparison search that saves students time and money during a period in their lives when both can be in short supply.
