      One of the most expensive parts of going to college is the textbooks you have to buy. Depending on how many courses you take, you may have upwards of 20 or more books to buy. This can help you with saving money.

      College is not a cheap decision. Paying for living expenses and tuition is just the tip of the iceberg. You can sell last semester's books to over 20 vendors in one place and see which one will offer you the most back to help you pay for new textbooks.

      Dropping more than $500 per semester on textbooks isn't within everyone's budget. Try a more affordable option that offers great deals and discounts. Books are always delivered on time. Once you pass with flying colors, you can sell them through the same app.

      Tuition fees and buying books makes college education expensive. But, you can save over $300 if not thousands of dollars by making textbook price comparisons before a purchase. Search books by title and/or author name, or scan barcodes to find a store with the most affordable prices.

      No one said college was going to be easy. Add the stress, hassles, and the fact that you'd likely need more than 1 text for some courses, can leave you overwhelmed. An alternative to spending all that money would come in handy, especially if it's cheap and resourceful.

      Over the course of my degree, I found that textbooks always wound up being the biggest expense outside of the class itself. Shelling out hundreds on books I may or may not use was a drag. Using this allowed me to avoid paying retail price, which saved me quite a bit over the course of 3 semesters.
