¯\_(ツ)_/¯

At this point in the summer, final exams from last semester seem so very long ago and the upcoming school year is something you haven’t even begun to think about. But keep in mind that time flies when you’re having fun and while you’re sunning yourself on the beach every day, classes are inching closer.

Facing the music early on and gearing up for the new school year early can pay off – especially when it comes to buying college textbooks. By getting started now, you’re in the best position to take advantage of some of the great deals available and save a bundle on everything you need for classes. Otherwise, you’ll likely get stuck paying full price at campus bookstores – in which case, you can say goodbye to those paychecks you’re working so hard to earn this summer.

So, where can you find cheap textbooks online? There are tons of options available to college students today, from “old faithful” Amazon to sites dedicated to buying, selling and renting college textbooks, like Chegg Rentals and Valore. However, you could waste hours scouring the web for the best deals among all of the great options available…and that’s where we come in.

Have you ever used Kayak to find the best deals on plane tickets? Well, BIGWORDS is the Kayak of the textbook world. Our Uber-BOT led search engine scours the entire Internet and returns results from all the sites where the books you need are available – enabling you to easily compare textbook prices at the click of one button. By searching for textbooks through BIGWORDS, students generally find books for 35-45% less than they would using other sites and save a whopping $1000 each year on average. (That will fund some great parties.)

Sure, we search textbook sites like Abebooks, and Bookrenter to help you save on textbooks, but we prefer to dig a little deeper when arming our website with the best tools for even BIGGER savings. We don’t just search the web to save you money on purchases. BIGWORDS also has a “consider buyback value” feature that enables students to compare the full price of buying now and then selling at the end of the term, vs. just renting your textbooks. This includes all of the favorites from places like Half.com to Textbooksrush and many more.

Through this mechanism, students not only know what they’ll save today, they get a glimpse of the money they can potentially make if they choose to sell back their books in a few months. This provides buyers with a better idea of which vendor is the most cost-effective option.

Still not convinced you want to take an hour away from your busy summer schedule to buy textbooks now? Well, we understand and you can certainly go ahead and wait until the campus bookstore opens in a few months. But, keep in mind, students save, on average, a whopping 90% when they use BIGWORDS instead of traditional campus bookstores. Plus, why schlep across campus and deal with the long lines and mess of students gearing up for the first days of classes when you can pour yourself a nice drink, search for the books you need online, and have them delivered to your doorstep? Yeah…that’s what we thought.

Go ahead, give us a shot and enter your ISBN to see all of the awesome cheapness we speak of
