Rent your college textbooks from Chegg.com
Chegg.com adheres to one simple philosophy: “Don’t buy it.”
The company’s founders advocate critical thinking in all its forms, especially when it applies to a college professor’s book list that stretches to twenty items and totals well over $300(US). “Don’t buy it,” they say. “Rent it instead.”
Multiply that one booklist times five classes, and it totals to the cost of a 1968 “slug bug” in good running condition with a decent interior and fully functional AM radio. Multiply that one booklist times five classes, and it totals to at least two months’ rent in a campus-close shared apartment. Factor in the time you lose going all around the campus store, elbowing freshmen out of the way so that you get your books and get out of there, and you see how renting your textbooks makes perfect economic and philosophic sense.
Pointing out that people rent most items they will use only once—tuxedos, for example, and cars for business trips to Cleveland, Osman and Aayush believe that college textbooks fall into the same category. Some science textbooks cost over $200, weigh at least three tons, and will have no practical use for you when you have aced your final exam and moved on to the next semester’s classes. Moreover, that science textbook will become obsolete in two or three years as the scientific research either elaborates or invalidates more than half of its content. Don’t buy it. Rent it.
Also pointing out that textbook sales contribute substantially to global deforestation, Osman and Aayush encourage textbook rental as the green alternative; and, practicing what they preach, they plant a tree for every textbook you rent. So, far they have planted hundreds of thousands of trees, and they have saved hundreds of thousands more.
The process is simple at Chegg.com: You order your books from the website, making all your payment and shipping arrangements in just a few minutes. Compare just that simple convenience with your experience battling the crowds and waiting in line at your campus bookstore. Chegg.com almost immediately packs and ships your order, sending it in a distinctive and fully recyclable orange box; your order usually arrives two days after you place it. Then, at the end of the semester, you return your books to Chegg.com—they supply the shipping label; and you get ready to do it all over again next semester.
