Online Retailers

Why is it risky to order my course materials from online retailers? 

There are multiple reasons:

  • Online retailers might ship the incorrect edition specified by your instructor. 
  • There can be shipment delays that can cause you fall behind in your courses. 
  • Some online retailers charge the full purchase price to buy out a textbook rental that you want to keep, lost, or damaged while other companies (like us!) allow you to apply the rental price as a credit toward the purchase. 
  • The majority of textbook rental sites display textbook rentals for packages/bundles that are missing required components like access codes that result in you spending more money to purchase the missing components(s).
  • Exchanges/returns can be a hassle.
  • Haven't found what you're looking for?
