Founded by students who were tired of high textbook prices.
We were tired of spending money on used textbooks at the begining of the semester that were barely ever referenced in class. We realized that there should be a more efficient way to rent textbooks that would allow students to pay for their books as they use them. So we made it our mission to help students get more value out of their textbooks by creating a new method of renting textbooks by the day, instead of by the semester, for $5 or less per day.
Our team is now based in Chicago, and we’re working around the clock to grow our library of $5 on-demand eTextbook rentals and add more free tools to help you when you buy, sell and use your textbooks.
$5 Digital Rentals (Beta)
Rent your eTextbook for $5 a day or less.
We are working hard to bring $5 per-day eTextbook rentals to schools and universities across the country. Soon, you’ll be able to rent all of your textbooks only when you need them, like for homework or tests. It’s great for classes where the textbook is required, but isn't used every day. If you end up needing your book often, any money you have had previously spent renting that book will be credited back to you if you buy the eBook with Packback.
Never overpay for a Textbook Again.
Compare prices in real-time from the top textbook retailers on the web. You can find the best deal on your book without having to do all the searching yourself. Once you find the best price on the web, you can jump right to that seller’s page to purchase the book you need!
