Stop Stressin’: Chegg to the Rescue!


Do you ever avoid buying your books for class because the feeling of debt seems to drown your mind? Trust me, you are not alone. Millions of students buy over-priced books every semester.  After completing my third semester of college, I understand buying textbooks can cause financial stress. For me, the prices of my books went up each semester and almost doubled in price. I was always buying my books through the bookstore, and didn’t think anything of it, until I discovered a great alternative for buying my textbooks.

Last Spring, I discovered Chegg. Chegg is an online resource for buying, selling and renting textbooks for your college education. I have used Chegg for old textbooks for money in exchange. It is an easy way to get money back for something you purchased from another outlet. After my textbooks were increasing to nearly $1000 at SAU’s bookstore, I knew I needed to take the alternative route.

When I was adding my books to my “cart,” I was blown away by the price I was going to be paying. For the books that I needed, I only had to pay $60.00; that was half of just one of my books if I bought it at full price. I had to buy a management book for one of my classes, and I was floored by the price difference. For example, if I would have bought the book brand new, it would have been $240, used; $180. I looked on Chegg and I bought the book for $9! I was so relieved by the price I was going to be paying for my textbooks. Why pay more for something you may never even use? Chegg has great benefits too! Chegg is pretty lenient on their books. They understand that studying is important, and they allow their books to be highlighted in. Chegg offers an outsource for internships and can provide tutoring services.

Chegg has great benefits to a college student who is looking to spend less on their textbooks. It allows students to still have a stable budget and stay in their price range for their textbooks. I love this great resource and will continue to use it until I graduate!

Hi readers! My name is Mary Blesz! I am a sophomore at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa. I am double majoring in Marketing and Management, with minors in Public Relations and Organizational Leadership! I am involved with Residence Life on campus, and also cannot wait to help with St. Ambrose's Dance Marathon! Helping out the kids is such a fulfilling thing I have done in the past and can't wait to see where this goes! FTK (For the Kids!)When I am not busy with the mountian full of homework I always have, I will normally be seen with all my friends! My friends are great group of people that I have met here at Ambrose! College has opened my eyes to so many new people! It is kind of interesting to me to meet people from all over; like Chicago (lots of my friends are from the area) and even people who loved in the same hometown!!!I have a huge "passion for fashion." I love to see what is most popular, and incorporate the latest trends within my own style. My style has a mixture of what my mood of the day is! One day I can pull out the high-waisted shorts and the crop top and flaunt my ombre hair, and then another day, wear the classic peplum top, with my hair pulled into a fashionable bun! I love reading about the latest trends and expressing it through my own personal style! I hope you enjoy what I can share with you through my own experiences and stories! Enjoy!!!!
