Benefits of Renting Textbooks

Renting textbooks saves you time, money and effort. Check out the five ways below that eCampus.com is making college life better with textbook rentals! If you are one of the smart ones and have already rented your textbooks from eCampus.com let us know in the comments how much money you saved!

Save Money Renting Textbooks

So Much Cheaper!

Keep your piggy bank full this semester by renting textbooks for college instead of buying them. When you rent you can save up to 90% off the regular price of a new textbook. Suddenly, ordering your textbooks for the upcoming semester doesn’t seem so bad. Use the coupons on this page to save even more off your textbooks!

Semester Textbook Rentals

We’re Flexible!

We know you’re busy and we want to fit into your schedule, not the other way around. eCampus.com offers three different rental options: short term, quarter and semester. So, you’re taking an 8-week course over the summer? Save money by getting a short term rental! Plus, if you need to keep the book longer you can extend your rental at any time.

Textbooks

You Aren’t Going to Keep the Book!

Once the semester is over you know you will never open those textbooks again so why buy them in the first place? Especially for those general education courses everyone is required to take. Not only does renting your textbooks save you money, but it also keeps your dorm or apartment free of unwanted piles of textbooks. Did you rent and decide that you actually do want to keep that incredibly interesting Chemistry book? No problem. You can purchase the book at any time during your rental and we subtract what you already paid for the rental from the purchase price.

Free Return Shipping on Textbook Rentals

Returning is Easy and Shipping is Free!

Returning your rented textbooks at the end of your rental period is simple. We’ll send you a reminder when your due date is approaching and after you take that last final just print your pre-paid UPS shipping label and drop your books off at a UPS Store. You can even re-use the same box you received your books in. Easy as that! Once we receive the books, we’ll send you a quick email letting you know we got your books back.

Textbook Buyback

Don’t Stress About Buyback Prices!

Gone are the days of carrying your textbooks across campus to the local bookstore to have them offer you $10 for that biology book you paid $300 for three months ago. Since you were smart and rented your textbooks you saved a ton of money at the beginning of the semester (and definitely didn’t pay $300 for your biology book!).

  1. I have never heard of your company until I went on ISBN search. I emailed you a question and received a prompt and courteous response. Customer service is getting rare. I received my Spanish text today right before the first day of class. I would rather give your company business instead of Amazon who is trying to monopolize e-commerce.

    1. Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear you received good customer service and were satisfied with your eCampus.com experience. We hope you will continue to use us to save money on your textbooks in the future. If you can provide me with your order number or email address, I will add $5 of in-store credit to your account to use on a future purchase for you taking the time to provide your feedback.

  2. I heard about ecampus through a friend for renting my textbooks for my first year of college. I was extremely pleased with this service! It was easy to use, I got my textbook well in advance, and the book I received was in great condition! I will definitely be using this service again for next semester!
    Thanks Ecampus!

    1. Hi Jack,

      Rental books are typically used. However, if we only have a new copy available, we will send a new copy. Please be advised we do not include supplements such as access codes in rentals.

      Thank you

    1. Hi Sam,

      We do allow for returns on rentals within 25 days of the shipped date. If the item you received was new or an access code, it will need to be unopened to receive a refund. Please print the UPS shipping label from your My Account to ship any items back. There is a 10% restocking fee applied to all returns.

      Thank you

  3. How can I redeem my points for my rental book I paid for on 8/14/17. Please, credit my account for my rental purchase on 8/14/17 for Leadership and managing in Nursing book.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Adam,

      You are able to highlight and write in rentals. However, our policy is you may not write or highlight on more than 1/3 (33%) of all pages. Therefore, if a book as 200 pages, you may highlight or write on 66 pages. If the item already has highlighting or writing on 1/3 of the pages, you may not highlight or write on any additional pages.

      Thanks for asking!

    1. Hi Merlinda- You can choose to return only one book in your My Account. Just sign in to your account, select Manage My Rentals/Returns and choose Return for a Refund. Select only the book you want to return and generate the return shipping label. Let us know if you have any questions!

  4. Hi – What a great deal! I can’t believe I saved so much money on a rental. I am just going back to school so every dollar saved helps. I received my book (brand-new, even!) and will be ordering from you every semester. I’m so glad I found your site.

    1. Hi Nicholas – Yes, you can highlight in your rental! Our rental policy states that no more than 1/2 of the content in the book should be highlighted, so as long as you are only highlighting the main points you should be okay. -Mary
