(Toledo News Now) - Do you have a student going to college? If so, be prepared to open your wallet again over the next few weeks as textbook bills start to arrive.
Many parents of college students are now breathing a sigh of relief, having signed off on that big fall bill for tuition. But not so fast: It's now time to buy textbooks. Luckily, there are some new ways to slash those costs.
$200 For A Single Book?
We spoke with two engineering students facing hundreds of dollars in textbooks fees.
"One of them is $200, the other is $130," one student complained. "It's pretty expensive."
So they try to buy used versions, and even share books if possible. That cuts the price by 50 percent.
But other students we spoke with told us they are turning to an even cheaper option: textbook rentals.
