BIGWORDS saves about $1000/yr average textbook orders. WE DON’T SELL ANYTHING. We find the cheapest textbooks to buy or rent by comparing prices at every good online textbook store.
One of Lifehacker's "Five Best Places to Buy Cheap Textbooks": "BIGWORDS is the textbook website that put seller/shipping optimization on the map with their Multi-Item Price Optimization services."
The BIGWORDS Uber-BOT textbook price comparison uses Multi-Item Price Optimization(tm) to maximize promotions and minimize shipping, providing the lowest total cost for your entire textbook order. It’s why we save students $225 on average multi-item orders.
Buy, rent, or sell textbooks: New, used, rentals - They’re all considered and calculated automatically to save you the most money.
...And that’s not all. It’s not exactly Snuggie, but it’ll give you the same warm fuzzy feeling when you realize how well you’re stickin’ it to the bookstore man. If we find books from sellers with low feedback scores, we’ll strip them out for you! Book looks like it’s been run over by a truck? Not a problem! We’ll ignore it. What’s that? You don’t care if it was run over by a truck and fell into a sewer? We’ll show you the very dirt-cheapest textbooks. Nobody, and I mean nobody, does textbooks like this. We slice ‘em, we dice ‘em, we find the cheapest copies of the right textbooks so YOU don’t have to spend your hard earned cash OR spend hours scouring the Internet for deals. This thing cleans up textbook prices like a Sham Wow does grape juice.
Voted most important app by all of us who built it, we believe you will be as overjoyed as we were when it started working. In fact, we’re so sure you’ll be completely satisfied that we’re giving it away FREE! Not a limited time offer. This thing is free and it’s going to stay free, because we love and respect you, student kind.
