Oh my gosh that is horrible! I’ve never had such issues with FinAid, mine always came in 7-10 days before classes. What is the hold up??

Just keep in mind… it WILL be worth it in the end. Sorry they suck though 🙁

Did he try Half.com or other discount text books sites?  My Fiance got his $175 book for $2.50…..seriously!!

like shaema said, you can try half.com. i use campusi.com and it collects prices from every seller that offers it so it’s super easy to compare prices. i really wish i knew about this when i was in undergrad! though it’s been a help with my grad school books.

That sucks that financial aid is taking so long!  I hope it gets better ASAP!

I second DealOz.  I had a new book for one class that wasn’t available when I first looked.  I checked back a week later and got it for less than half including rush shipping!  I get all my books (not just text) that way!  It looks at Half.com, amazon, buy, and a bunch of others (I think the “group” reseller I’ve been using through DealOz is abe books0.

I was always able to return books to the bookstore w/in the first 14 or so days of classes as long as they were still in the condition that I bought them in (some were wrapped in plastic etc). I used to buy them at the college bookstore, write down the ISBNs and then search for them online (half.com etc).  do some online research, you can definitely find those books cheaper! smile!

I always ordered mine online super cheap.


FH also owes me $ right now and I won’t get it back until he gets his tax refund. I totally understand the stress.  *hug*
