Avoiding The End-of-summer Wallet Clean Out Featuring Texts.com

Its that dreaded time of year again… you know, that time of year when you begin to set your alarm from the crack of dawn, sharpen your pencils, iron your uniforms, and prepare yourself for the screeching sound of the relieving school bell. Oh wait, you mean to tell me I am not going back to high school?!

While I am overjoyed to never have to wear another school uniform ever again, I am not too overjoyed to be paying high way robbery for my textbooks. My high school required us to purchase our own books, but for the most part my older friends passed down their used copies. Thankfully, I always seemed to avoid buying my own textbooks so I never had to experience the “wallet cleanout” that occurs at the end of summer just before school starts.

Finding a good deal has always been a hobby of mine. To me, there is nothing better than the satisfaction of knowing you received the best price on something. I am someone who absolutely hates wasting things. And I specifically dislike wasting time, energy, and money. When I came across Texts.com, not only did I smile, but my bank account smiled. Texts.com does all the hard work of finding the very best deal on a textbook for you.

When you go to their site, you are presented with a search bar of wonder. First, they ask you to enter your school’s name so they can potentially match you with a cheap textbook available on your campus! After selecting your school, all you have to do is type in the title, author, or ISBN number of the book you are looking to purchase and hit “search”. From there, Texts.com crawls the web for all companies carrying your desired book and will present you with the compared prices (Including offers from top sellers like Amazon and Chegg)!

Textbooks are heavy and awkward to carry and I never felt the need to lug my whole math book home for just one page of problems. I began taking pictures of the book pages necessary for my homework with my iPhone. All throughout high school I avoided bringing my textbooks home from school. I figured since I refused to carry my textbooks a short walk out to my car everyday, the situation would probably be similar in college. When graduation rolled around, I asked for an iPad strictly (yeah right) for my textbooks. I figured digital downloads of the necessary books would be dirty cheap! In some cases they are… and in some cases its so much cheaper to rent!

Probably my most favorite feature about Texts.com would have to be its search filters! After typing in the title, author, or ISBN number of the book you are looking to purchase, you are given the option to select what type of book you would like. This feature most certainly saved me a few hours of searching, and researching, for the cheapest version of my required books. For the majority of my classes I was able to snatch up a pretty cheap digital download copy of the book. Unfortunately, I will not be escaping lugging a heavy book around campus (darn you French class).

Textbooks add up, Texts.com has you covered (thankfully)!

Stay quirky!
