Textbookrental Canada Coupon Code: Extra 5% Discount

Are you lashing yourself to a desk this spring and summer to catch up on a few courses, or trying to fit a few courses in that didn’t fit in your regular semester? If you are, then take advantage of Textbookrental Canada’s 5% off coupon code when renting your textbooks for this coming semester.

Click here to browse textbooks @ Textbookrental.ca now

  • Coupon Code: SPRINGSCHOOL
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

Make sure to use this as a coupon code and also make sure that the Ambassador code 6994 is applied (two separate code areas), as together they give you 10% off. The ambassador code should automatically apply when you click through from Bargainmoose, but in the case that it doesn’t, the code is right there for you.

I, unfortunately, will be taking courses this spring. I just finished eight months of university, just polished off final papers and final exams, just to start it all up again in a few short days. You see, I am two courses short of graduating with my degree, and they have to be second language courses. So, I am taking a trip back to my home university, staying in residence for two months, and learning French four hours a day for five days a week over two months.

If you are taking courses this spring and summer, I feel your pain. I only hope that getting your textbooks for cheap will help ease some of that anguish.

I like their options for either renting or buying. If you are renting you can rent for as little as 60 days all the way up to a full semester.

If you are a university student, how do you get your textbooks? Have you ever considered renting?

  • Coupon Code: THEMOOSESAVES
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

Every year I exude upon the virtues of renting textbooks and this year is no different:

  • Greatly reduces cost to the student
  • Makes sure you don’t end up with unwanted textbooks at end of year
  • No worries about the university not buying back your books
  • Better for the environment

Some years I have saved 60% off the cost of buying the books from the university book store by doing a combination of renting and buying used. It has really worked out well, and I highly recommend it. This year I got my books for three classes already, and only spent $136. Make sure to use the above code during checkout to increase your savings!

Shipping depends on your location.

Textbookrental Canada Coupon: Extra 5% Cashback When Selling Textbooks

Textbookrental Canada Coupon: Extra 5% Cashback When Selling Textbooks

The end of another semester is upon us! If you bought some textbooks this year – now is the time to sell them. Textbookrental Canada is offering an extra 5% cash-back when you sell your textbooks to them.

Click here to sell books to Textbookrental.ca

  • Coupon Code: SPRINGISHERE
  • Discount: extra 5% back
  • Expiry: Unknown

If you are returning textbooks to Textbookrental Canada, you can include your sale books in with your returns – I did. I just returned four books to them and sold a textbook to them at the same time. I have found that the longer I hold on to textbooks the less they are worth.

Selling books to Textbookrental Canada is easy: just input the book’s ISBN number online and the system will tell you if they are currently buying that book. I am an English major, and out of all the books I had to buy for my last two semesters, they were only buying one. But that is better than none! I think they would probably be more interested in science or business textbooks.

BookMob Canada Coupon: Extra 5% Off

Bookmob Canada is currently my favourite textbook rental place because their selection and prices are generally the best. This semester I ordered a grand total of (gasp) 15 books from them! So you can believe that an extra 5% off is pretty valuable!

Click here to rent textbooks from Bookmob Canada

  • Coupon Code: LETITSNOW
  • Discount: 5% Off
  • Expiry: Unknown

It is also easy to buy the books you want to keep at the end of your semester – if you have found one particularly useful or you really enjoyed one. As an English major the majority of my books aren’t exactly textbooks – in fact many of my school books are novels. I rent them all and save tons of money by doing so. If I end up liking one or two – I will then buy them (for pretty much the difference) and all is well. I love renting my textbooks and wished that all textbooks were available to rent!

There is a $6.99 flat shipping rate, or free shipping on orders of $150+. Free return shipping.

Be sure to use this Bookmob Promo code and always check out the forums before placing an order.

BigMama Coupon: Exclusive 5% off Textbook Rentals

The online book rental service Bigmama.ca has sent us a unique coupon code for a discount on their site.

Click here to use the Bigmama coupon code online

  • Coupon Code: CoolMoose
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expires: 21st, September 2012

You can combine the coupon above with the additional offer available on their checkout page in order to get a 10% discount.

If you haven’t heard of it, it’s basically a textbook rental service. You choose which book you want, how long you want it for and it will show you the cost. The cost will obviously be cheaper than purchasing the textbook outright. I think it’s quite a handy option if you’re at university, like me.

I have had amazing success with renting textbooks the last few semesters. I don’t have to worry about my books not being bought back by the university, and I don’t have to take the time and effort to list and try to sell my books locally. I also save so much off of retail price that this service is quickly becoming my favourite.

I find it pretty cool that Bigmama plant a tree every time you rent!

Textbook Rental Canada Coupon: Exclusive 10% Off

Textbook Rental Canada has graced us with an exclusive coupon code! Get an extra 5% off your order. Combined with the 5% off from the ambassador code, you get 10% off!

Be sure to use BOTH the following codes to get the full 10% off:

  • Coupon Code: BARGAINMOOSE
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expiry: 10th September 2012

and…

  • Ambassador Code: 6994
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

Together these will give you a wonderful extra 10% off your textbook rentals.

I have found over the past few years in university that renting textbooks saves me a lot of time, money, and effort. The money is simple, renting is cheaper than buying. The time and effort it saves is trying to sell my textbooks after the semester when the school refuses to buy them back.

I hope your shopping for university this year is going well, and best of luck come the start of semester!

Textbook Rental Coupon Codes

Renting textbooks can save you an amazing amount of money in university, college and during long distance education courses. Here are a couple coupons to help you save a little extra on your textbooks this year.

Click here to go to Bookmob.ca

  • Promo Code: CCMOOSESUMMER
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expiry: 15th August 2012

Shipping: $6.99 flat shipping rate, or free shipping on orders of $150+. Free return shipping.

Bookmob.ca is where my big score came from this year: they had almost everything! I got 10 books from them for my fall semester… I felt like a thief they were so cheap! The flat rate shipping is a god-sent and really, I was most pleased with this order!

Click here to go to Textbookrental.ca

  • Ambassador Code: 6994
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

Shipping: Depends on the weight of the parcel and the distance from Toronto, free returns.

I picked up two textbooks at Textbookrental.ca this year. They are saving me about 30% on buying them, and at the end I don’t have to fight with the university about book buybacks. I just send them back with my pre-paid shipping label.

The other biggy for Canadian textbook rentals is BigMama.ca, however, I have been unable to find any coupons for that website lately.

- – -

Now for the news of how my Fall 2012 semester is looking textbook wise.

To buy all my books for this semester (14) from my university bookstore would have cost me: $435.07 (including GST).

What did I pay?

  • 2 books from textbookrental.ca = $32.55 (used some credit so that helped)
  • 2 books from BetterWorldBooks = $20.35
  • 10 books from Bookmob.ca = $65.38

Total I paid for my Fall 2012 semester books = $118.28 (including GST).

Even without the credit on my account, my total fall book purchase would have been under $200. The two from BetterWorldBooks I get to keep, the rest I send back at the end of the semester. I like using a combo of textbook rentals, and buying used textbooks cheap like I mentioned in my post here.

Already my semester is looking bright, how is yours?

Very friendly customer service, I chatted with them regarding shipping costs via their handy dandy chat window and their availability was great (10 pm Toronto time), and they were very nice. I also discovered they have a price matching program where they will match any of their customers prices and provide the customer with 10% store credit.

Click here to go to Bigmama.ca

  • Coupon Code: 2012MOOSE
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expiry: 31st July 2012

Shipping: Varies, free returns.

Standard shipping is $9.98 for the first book and $4.99 for each subsequent book to a maximum of $34.93.  Thus, customers that order more than six books receive a discount on their shipping.

One thing about Bigmama text book rentals is that they have a Semester Guarantee and 30 Day Satisfaction Guarantee.  You can combine the two guarantees so that you can order books early, get a free extension of the book rental term until the end of the semester and you don’t have to worry about rental fees if you drop a class.  For example, students that ordered their books in December received an extension of their rental term until April 30, 2012 without additional charge.  If you drop a class, you still receive the benefit of the Satisfaction Guarantee and get a full refund of rental fees.

I have used Bookmob before and it has a great layout, and it was very easy to use. Textbook came really quickly and I got reminders close to the date I needed to return the book. Returning was simple – printed off a prepaid label and dropped off at UPS. Excellent selection of textbooks at really good prices. Bookmob also has a lowest price guarantee.

Our dear Anna had this to say about textbook rentals:

I spent such a fortune on textbooks when I went through university (about 10 years ago now)! It also felt like such a waste, because I used these books for a few months and have not looked at them since. There are about 10 books sitting on my shelf right now, which have not been opened in over 8 years. There are books on marketing, accounting, economics, management… I wish I’d known that I’d been able to rent textbooks at that stage, because it’s a service I probably would have made use of.

Personally, I am still in university and these websites are a lifesaver! I have used Bookmob and it saved me $100 just on one textbook! Because of websites like these (and buying used books as well) I spend roughly 1/2 of what my fellow students do per semester.

DealTicker: $10 for a $25 Credit Towards Textbooks from TextBookRental.ca

As a university student I know that saving money is VERY important. Tuition is expensive, but your text books don’t have to be, especially with offers like these. Pay $10 for $25 worth of credit towards textbooks at TextbookRental.ca.

If you get re-directed, I found the deal in Saskatoon. It is an online deal and includes free shipping anywhere in Canada.

Info you need to know:

  • valid for 3 months (Expires: April 10, 2012)
  • 1 voucher per person
  • To redeem voucher, please visit www.textbookrental.ca 48 hours after the deal has ended on DealTicker and enter voucher code at time of checkout
  • Free shipping across Canada. Please contact the merchant while placing your order and redeeming voucher to override shipping charges manually
  • Taxes are not included

Each semester I do a mix of buying used textbooks and renting ones I can’t find, or can’t find at a reasonable price. Last semester my Child Development Textbook would have cost me $140 to buy new, was impossible to find used, and I was able to rent it for around $65, saving me a pile of $$.

I used Bookmob.ca last semester for my Development Psychology textbook. It was a ridiculously expensive textbook and I couldn’t find it used anywhere!

I really need to get on my textbooks for next semester: the early bird gets the thriftiest worms! [More textbook rental coupon codes]

The folks over at Bookmob.ca have emailed us an exclusive coupon code which you can use on their site. It’s the first time I have mentioned Bookmob.ca here on Bargainmoose. They are a Canadian textbook rental service, based out of Toronto.

Click here to use the Bookmob.ca coupon code online

  • Coupon Code: CCMOOSEWINTER2011
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expires: 31st March 2011

I had a browse to see if I could find some deals on Bookmob.ca that illustrate the benefit of using a textbook rental service. I spotted a few books and price compared with buying new from the likes of Chapters and Amazon.ca. Here are some examples:

It’s not always going to be of the most benefit to rent though. Sometimes it may be more beneficial to purchase. For example, the book Canadian Small Business Kit For Dummies is $17.56 with coupon code and $4.99 shipping. But it is only $23.82 on Amazon (spend $25 for free shipping too). In that case, it probably makes more sense just to buy from Amazon. So I suggest you do some research before buying or renting your textbooks. We made a Bigmama.ca coupon code post the other day, which offers a similar service. So it’s worth price comparing there too. [More textbook rental coupon codes]
