If you’re headed back to campus this semester, your syllabus probably has a list of expensive books to buy. You can make your dollars stretch a little further if you buy used or secondhand, and this week we’re looking at some of the best sites where you can score cheap textbooks without breaking the bank.
AbeBooks has been around for ages, and changed remarkably little over the years, but that’s a good thing. The service still searches and offers massive discounts on textbooks from thousands of different retailers, all to make sure you get the best possible prices on the books you have to buy. They’re also a marketplace in and of themselves, meaning you can get many of your textbooks right there on the site, and sell used textbooks back to them directly instead of going to multiple retailers.
GetTextbooks.com compares new used textbook prices from hundreds of online bookstores to find the cheapest textbook prices every time. Definitely worth checking here!
The Co-op is Australia’s largest and Official supplier of textbooks , educational, development and learning resources.
