Thrifty Thinking: CampusBooks
CampusBooks’ CEO Alex Neal is available to discuss a simple way for students to save money on textbooks for the upcoming school year. The National Association of College Stores (NACS) says the average college student spends $655 on textbooks each year, but a single textbook can easily cost as much as $300. The outrageous amount of money spent on textbooks could be put toward other college expenses such as room and board, tuition or groceries. CampusBooks The website’s “Buy vs. Rent” price prediction tool helps users decide with confidence whether buying or renting textbooks is a better investment based on current and future estimated prices. Rather than researching dozens of discounted textbook websites to find low costs, this tool efficiently does all of the price comparing for you.
