rent - a - text
A new semester has just started. Sam is taking 5 courses, and looking to purchase all of the required textbooks for each of her courses so that she can get a head start on her lectures. Furthermore, most of her professors require the newest edition of the textbook.
Sam has looked into the prices of brand new textbooks, and discovered that they will cost over $600 for the whole semester. She has also looked into buying used textbooks online, but is only able to find old editions of the textbook, or simply unable to find the specific books she is looking for. Sam also though about downloading the textbooks for free online, but she is worried about the security of an internet download.
While scrolling through Instagram the next day, Sam sees an ad for Rent - a - Text. The ad describes how students can temporarily rent textbooks or book chapters. Curious about the affordability and offerings of the service, she decides to click on the ad to inquire further about the platform.
When looking at the platform, Sam is able to sign up for the platform and specifies that she is from the University of Calgary. This allows her to search for her textbooks based on the title, course name, section, and department.
Sam discovers that all the textbooks she needs are on rent - a - text, and that there are flexible and affordable pricing plans available. She is also able to rent specific chapters of the textbook for the classes in which the whole textbook will not be used. She estimates that the cost for the materials she needs will need for the semester is closer to $200, which is much more affordable for Sam.
Sam decides to rent 3 full textbooks for a period of 4 months, and then chooses a flexible plan for her 2 other courses,which allows her to download specific chapters and save money as a result. Furthermore, Sam is able to view the textbooks both on her mobile phone, and her laptop, making access easy and convenient.
