As students are well aware, textbooks are the third-highest expense in college; they rank right under tuition and room and board. Often a single book can cost more than a month of groceries. Fortunately for your bank account, there are a lot of ways to save money on books. Buying used books is a popular option, but more and more students are starting to rent their textbooks.
Skyo is a new option for textbook shopping that helps students find the best deals on their textbooks. A student renting books from Skyo can save 70% or more off the price of a brand new book. In addition to low prices, Skyo.com offers free shipping to anywhere in the United States. Students can search Skyo’s database of over five million textbooks for new, used, rental, or digital titles. Also, during the month of September, if you like Skyo on Facebook, you can save an extra 10% off of your order in honor of National Coupon Month.
For all the digital textbook skeptics out there, listen up: Skyo’s eBooks let you search, highlight, take notes and share notes. They don’t require a special eReader, either—any tablet, Mac, PC, or even smartphone will do. Can your textbooks generate a study guide with all of your highlighting and notes in one document? Skyo’s eBooks can!
Lots of textbook shopping sites claim to have the lowest prices, so let’s do a little comparison.
