Bookrenter.com Review and Coupon Code

If you want to save money this semester, you should try renting your textbooks. Compared to buying and selling them the traditional way, renting your textbooks can save you a few hundred bucks per semester. After doing the math and comparing vs. buying, i figured out last semester that I saved over $400 by renting my books. I've rented on three different sites, but my favorite is Bookrenter.

Largest selection of books

Bookrenter has the biggest selection of books, I found every book I needed on their site, vs. having to search around and call customer service when using other sites. Bookrenter has 3 million books in stock, compared to 1.2 million for one of the leading competitors.

Free shipping

Bookrenter gives you free shipping on all your orders. Other textbook rental sites require you to pay for standard shipping. Free shipping is nice, because sometimes it takes me 2 or 3 shopping sessions to figure out and find all the books I need. When you don't have to pay for shipping each time you can shop in segments for each round of books you need.

Reliable service and good book condition

All my books from Bookrenter came ahead of schedule, and were packaged nicely and were in good condition. Bookrenter allows some minimal highlighting in their books, but only rent them a fixed number of times so you never get a heavily used book, plus you can do some highlighting you need. 

Free returns

Bookrenter offers free returns on all books. If you get the wrong book or drop a class you can easily ship a book right back to Bookrenter at no cost. You just print out their label and ship it back, and you will receive a full refund in a few days. Its pretty easy and straightforward.

I ordered mine on the 23 of August and I got Express shipping. It has been six days since I ordered it and it is still says that it is processing. I don't think that the website is reliable. It says it only takes 1-2 days to process, that's bull sh*t. I give it a 1 out of 100.

Just a heads up to any of you who may use BookRenter. DON'T USE THEM. Over a year ago, I was nice and helped out a friend, who didn't have a bank account at the time, purchase their textbooks for college. (This was for the Fall of 2013). Now almost a year later, I have had 5 charges taken out of my bank account because the books rented this Spring, under one of this person's credit cards, were lost in transit when they were returned. None of the Customer Service representatives have been helpful. Their answer is that when I purchased the first round of books over a year ago, I agreed to let them charge my card for any future transactions. They have contradictory information on their website. Stating that your card information isn't retained after the original transaction is completed but then in another section they state that they can charge any card ever used if a card should be declined or have insufficient funds available. So, essentially, if your parents, your grandparents, Aunts, or Uncles would be nice and rent your books for you to help out; they can be responsible for any order you make in the future. No notification was given at all. I logged into my bank account to see that the card was charged.
