You can win free textbooks for a year! During the month of August, Education-Portal.com is giving one lucky student $1,000 to pay for textbook costs of an entire year. Like RentScouter, they understand that textbook prices are a serious financial burden for college students. College textbook prices have been increasing faster than inflation for twenty years with students currently paying $900 per year for textbooks. So when it comes to saving money on books, you can’t do much better than free.
The Win Free Textbooks for a Year! sweepstakes is currently taking place through their Facebook page.
If you’re 18 or older, and enrolled at an (accredited) college or university, head over and enter. Also, share this sweepstakes info with your friends—if you refer the $1000 winner, you’ll receive a bonus prize of $500. When you enter, we’d love it if you’d put down RentScouter as your referral.
If you don’t win, don’t forget about our article on where you might be able to find free textbooks online.
