LINCOLN, Neb., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Neebo, the nationwide network of college bookstores backed by their online website Neebo.com, is giving away 100,000 textbook rentals—worth an estimated $6 million. Back-to-school time is stressful enough for students without the added weight of high textbook fees. The annual giveaway is just one of many ways that Neebo is trying to save students money, including offering a 20% discount on all textbook prices.
Here's the deal: students can go to freerental.neebo.com, select a book, "like" the Neebo Facebook page (www.facebook.com/neebo) and voila...that book rental is free! In addition, once the free rental transaction is completed, the student has the option of going to Neebo.com to order all their textbooks at a 20 percent discount. Plus, all books ordered at Neebo.com include free shipping. The promotion will run through the end of January 2012 or until all the free rentals are snatched up.
"The cost of textbooks is at an all-time high; students spend an average of $700 a year on textbooks," said Steve Clemente, Senior Vice President of Neebo. "Neebo is all about helping students get the most out of their college experience, and that includes being able to save a little money for when they need it most."
Giving away free textbook rentals is just part of the fun. With campus wide competitions and memorable promotions, Neebo hooks college students up in ways that go way beyond cash.
