How do you save money on textbooks?

3 Aug

College textbooks cost students about $1,200 per year, according to the College Board. The costs of textbooks have risen dramatically over the past three decades, and it can be a struggle for students to pay for the books they need to take classes. So how do you save money on textbooks? Do you rent, purchase ebooks, borrow, share with a friend? One good place to start is to compare the prices of textbooks on a textbook pricing service like http://www.cheap-textbooks.com.

Cheap-textbooks.com compares the prices of new, used, rental, and digital textbooks from about 50 websites, helping you quickly and easily find the cheapest price on the books you need. They do all of the searching for you so that you can get the books your professors require right away. Having the books you need from the first day of class means that you can start reading and keep up with your assignments more easily.

Additionally, using price quotes shows you the lowest prices available for the books you want to buy, and they include the shipping costs. Shipping costs can be significant, so try to find a site that sells as many books as possible that you need to cut down on the expense.

They cut through all the marketing hype that accompanies searching for books on different websites. This means that you get access to the prices of the books you want fast, without having to deal with all the advertisements that waste valuable time. Cheap-textbooks.com is committed to providing you with the information you need to make a decision about where to buy your textbooks, and cut through all the hype to help you start your semester off right.

Websites with which they partner claim that you can save between 60 and 95 percent off the price of new textbooks. When you start a new semester, check out the prices to find the best prices on your books. Save yourself as much as time and money as possible by comparing the prices of your textbooks on one site, which saves you having to search dozens of sites to find the best prices. Cheap-Textbooks.com is the best place to find the books you need at the prices you want (don’t forget the “-“).

The college textbook blog network has two goals for adding guest bloggers: To have you produce outstanding and useful content that reaches a broad expanse of college students. To provide multiple viewpoints on the subject of college textbooks.

We only want and will only syndicate quality insights created by writers who stand behind their work.

1. Choose your topic. Select an area of expertise and write an article  relating to one of the following topics:

a.    How to save money on textbooks.

b.    Information on renting textbooks or digital textbooks.

c.    Textbook News.

d.    Technology around textbooks.

e.    Your opinion concerning textbooks.

f.     Textbooks after the course ends.

3.  Write your Article. Compose your article for the college student that could use help with textbooks! All articles must be original work created by the submitter and can be previously published. The article and about box may contain one link each.

a.    Choose a narrow focus.  We are more likely to accept articles that share in-depth information on a narrow topic, as opposed to shallow tips on a broad topic.

b.      Make it fresh and new. Avoid redundant tips and information we’ve all heard before.  Tell the reader something they didn’t know so that they are likely to ‘share this with a friend!’

c.    Write concise paragraphs.  Use bullets and avoid lengthy paragraphs.  The goal is for a reader to be able to get an overall feel for your entire article in about 5-10 seconds.  Keep articles between 200-800 words in length.  Articles with excessive grammatical, spelling and/or punctuation errors will not be accepted.

d.    Infuse your article with wit and personality.  It is OK to be corny, be relatable, make it personal.  Write in the “I” form.  Include a catchy introduction and loads of creativity to set you apart.

4. Submit the article.  Email your article to bjones@computerpages.net where it will be considered for publication. We prefer that you simply paste your article into the body of your email rather than send an attachment. You will receive a response within 7 days.  Include your first name, and city/state so we can include it at the bottom of your post!

5.  Self Promote. Your article will be promoted on our Facebook and Twitter posts but we encourage self promotion. We will send you the URL of your guest post so you can promote it to your Twitter and Facebook followers. This cross promotion will dramatically improve your articles social reach.
