Our most popular textbook rentals


Get cash back just for returning your rental


Not sure if rental is our best deal? Take a look at how the numbers stack up. On average, buying a new textbook will save you 64% off the list price, and you’ll earn back another 9% when you sell it. Total savings: 73%.

Let’s do the same with a used textbook. You’ll save 75%, earn 9% back when selling, add a coupon, and voila! Total savings: 85%.

If you rent, however, you can take an amazing 87% off the initial list price. Plus, Bookbyte is the only site that mails you back 10% of what you spent after you return the book on time. Put those numbers together, and our renters save an average of 89% on the total cost of their textbooks. It’s our very best offer, so grab those rentals while they’re in stock!

Here's how renting works

1. Rent

shopping cart

Rent your textbooks for up to 95% off the list price. Choose how long you want the book — 30, 60, 90, or 120 days — with an option to extend if needed.

2. Receive


Get free shipping on orders over $49 (Restrictions apply). We offer several different shipping options to ensure your textbook arrives when you need it.

3. Reminders


Just before your textbook is due, we will send you a reminder by email or SMS text alerts (optional). All return rentals get a 7-day grace period, so no need to worry if you’re a couple days late.

4. Return


Shipping back to us is always free! Log in to your account to print out a free shipping label, put your books in any box, put the label on the box, and bring the package to any FedEx location.

5. Rebate

money bag

After books that have been received on time are processed, we’ll pay you back 10% of the rental cost.
