- What's this all about?
You asked for it — you got it! In order to drastically cut prices for students even more than before, we offer rental options on a huge number of book titles.
Rental books can be selected along with any other combination of products on
our site, in a single transaction. The main difference is that you will have to send the rental back at the end of the term. Don't worry —
we make it easy.
- How do I return my books?
When you order a rental from us, you will receive an email containing instructions on how to access your pre-paid return label. You can do this at any time by logging into your
online account, viewing your "Purchases" section, and clicking on the order in question. You can print this label right away if you want. Don't think you can hold on to a label that long? No worries. If you lose this label you can always print another one.
- What will I receive?
You can be confident when you rent textbooks from us, your books will be correct according to your order, and will be in excellent
shape. Your rentals will never be an international edition or a reprint, and only the best condition used copies will be shipped. On
occasion, if the only book available is a US teacher's edition, and if it is determined to be the same as the student edition
page for page, and word for word, it may be sent (this is very rare).
Because our rental books come from numerous sources, your order may not contain information about the rental
return process in the box with the book. Your online account will always contain the pertinent and up-to-date information.
Important Note: Supplemental materials, such as student access codes, CD ROMs, or workbooks are not
guaranteed to come with your books even if the title of the book contains language regarding CD ROMs or other forms of supplements.
- How long can I keep my rental?
We try to offer rental periods that match your school's term. However, sometimes our rental terms won't match exactly what you need. Please pay close attention to rental return dates prior to making your selection, so you don't end up with a rental that must be returned before you're done with it.
- What if I change my mind, and want to keep my book instead of returning it?
You have the option to purchase your book at any time during the rental period. Log into your bookstore account and view the
order detail section to do this. You will be charged the buyout price.
- What happens if I'm late returning the book?
If you fail to send the book back after the rental period (and an additional grace period to cover transit times) ends, we will charge
your saved credit card the buyout price, which is the book's replacement cost less what you paid initially for the rental.
We don't want to do this! Please contact our Help Desk and contact our customer team if you are having problems
with your return.
- What about the fine print?
We're glad you asked.
