As the largest book retailer online, Amazon unsurprisingly has a vast selection of textbooks, with almost any conceivable book available new. The site doesn’t offer the most competitive prices on new books, but Amazon’s Marketplace makes it easy to find cheap deals on used textbooks. The Marketplace allows users to sell their used books, meaning it’s filled with students and used book vendors looking to get rid of old books at extremely low prices.

Chegg is another prominent textbook retailer that offers huge savings on textbooks new and used. By simply entering a book’s title or ISBN code, users can view a listing of all available versions of a book along with their prices. Chegg offers significant savings on used books along with the option to rent books for a semester or purchase digital editions.
