SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Chegg, the number one online textbook rental company, today announced a revolutionary new way for college students to BUY, not just rent, the most popular textbooks. For the first time ever, college students now have the ability to purchase textbooks knowing from the start, the exact amount of cash they will receive at the end of the semester if they so choose to sell the book back to Chegg. This announcement comes two weeks prior to Textbook Tuesday on August 19th, making Chegg the textbook supplier of choice for students. Chegg is introducing the cash back guarantee service on 300,000 plus titles. In an industry where the student/consumer often feels powerless after selling back their books for pennies, Chegg is guaranteeing the most cash back compared to traditional textbook buyback services. On top of more cash back, the student also receives free shipping. The student only needs to print out a return label from their online Chegg account to sell their book back to Chegg. "I am thrilled Chegg added a cash back guarantee program this year in addition to renting," said Stanley Liu, a student at Princeton University. "I sometimes prefer to buy my books in case I choose to reference them in the future, but knowing how much money I'll get in return for selling them back makes Chegg my go-to place to buy, rent and return. As Chegg's rental customer, it makes it easy for me to get the combination of renting and purchasing to fit my needs for the semester." Chegg's goal is to make textbooks more accessible, and affordable, by offering a convenient and cheaper alternative to traditional methods. Last year Chegg helped students save millions of dollars across the US. Now, in its second prime-time year, Chegg is stocked and ready to rock to help students on thousands of college campuses save 60 to 80 percent on college textbooks, putting money back into students' already thin wallets. "Chegg continues to innovate within the textbook industry with student friendly programs," said Osman Rashid, CEO of Chegg. "Our intention is to provide a hassle free experience where a student can now purchase books without having to worry about if they can sell the book at the end of the term. The cash back guarantee program turns the lights on, in an industry that has continued to neglect the customer."
