College textbooks, new or used, can cost an arm and a leg. I discovered eBay’s partner website,, where you can buy textbooks for cheap.

I have saved $100 to $200 on books each semester since I found this website. And as soon as you are done with the book, just turn around and post it for sale on the site and other college students will buy the book from you.

I just earned back everything I spent on my books last semester.
