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?
