Rent Textbooks Instead of Buying to Save Money and the Environment

Website of the Day: Chegg

I may talk a lot of game about refreshing your gadgets and accessories before you head back to school, but let's face it — things can get pretty expensive. Between a new Fall wardrobe, books, and tech, you may blow your budget before the school year even starts.

But good news! I found one way to save you some serious cash during your school year — rent your textbooks from Chegg instead of buying. Chegg is an online textbook rental service that lets you use your book, as you need it — with super fast shipping and returns — instead of dropping a load of dough on a book you'll only need for a semester. The process of book renting and reusing is eco-friendly in its own right, but Chegg will also plant a tree for every book you rent. So now, good for the environment also means more green in your wallet.
