Dakota Textbook Co. in Vermillion announces an innovative textbook rental program designed to lower the cost of textbooks for students while also providing students with a choicebetween renting or purchasing textbooks new or used.
Dakota Textbook Co. has made their most popular textbooks available for rental to students for the spring 2010 term. Renting textbooks cuts the students' cost in half — rented textbooks are guaranteed to save 50 percent or more off the cost of a new book on every rental. This program offers students an economical choice for textbooks.
"Last spring, the average college student spent approximately $280 on textbooks for the term," said Stuart Lewis, manager, Dakota Textbook Co.
"As textbook affordability continues to be an issue and leaves students scouring the Internet for textbooks at lower prices, we are offering students an option for lower textbook prices within the local bookstore.
By renting textbooks through the store, students will save 50 percent or more off the cost of the new textbook and are assured the correct book without having to search multiple online sites for the best deal."
Renting textbooks from Dakota Textbook Co. is as easy as "Rent, Use and Return." Students simply choose to rent textbooks when available, use them all term and return them on or before the last day of finals for the term. All that is required for renting textbooks is a valid debit or credit card.
"Students are assured of the correct book plus returns are easy with our textbook rental program," added Stuart Lewis. "Renting textbooks through Dakota Textbook Co. offers students advantages in addition to lower prices. Most importantly, students can expect the same high level of customer service and because there are no shipping fees, waiting time or errors, students get the right book at the right price at the right time. Plus, re-using textbooks promotes recycling and encourages a green attitude."
Textbook rentals are available now at Dakota Textbook Co. for textbooks required for the spring 2010 term.
