Atlanta, GA-- Rent-A-Text, an innovative textbook rental program launched by Follett Higher Education Group, saved Georgia State students $446,966.00 on course materials this fall alone. Aimed at making higher education more affordable, Rent-A-Text saves students who shop in-store or online 50 percent or more off the cover price of the nation’s most popular textbooks.
Nationwide, Rent-A-Text saved students more than $60 million during the fall back-to-school rush. In addition to promised savings, Rent-A-Text offers many benefits, including:
· Same Day Service. Students can rent and return textbooks in-store or online, ensuring they have the right textbooks the day classes start.
· Real-life Usage. Students have the freedom to highlight and take notes all within the normal wear and tear associated with coursework.
· Greatest Number of Payment Options. Students can choose from a variety of ways to pay for their textbook rental, including financial aid and campus cards.
· Extra Spending. Up-front savings on the cost of textbooks can be applied to other school supplies students need to succeed.
Students also saved by using CaféScribe, Follett’s e-textbook and social networking platform available online and in participating Follett bookstores. The CaféScribe platform provides students the ability to read, search, highlight, bookmark and annotate digital textbooks, as well as share notes and discuss topics with peers in their classroom and with students around the world.
