Dusted off: Saving money on textbooks


Yes, I’ve been lazy this year and I’m only getting around to ordering my textbooks now.

Last year, I did it much earlier and wrote an advice piece: How can I save money on textbooks?

The information is still relevant and can help you save money, if you’re willing to risk waiting until the middle-to-end of September to your textbooks to arrive.

  1. Thanks Joey, I’m definitely going to look into this!

  3. As a fairly recent graduate myself, I definitely understand the money struggles that come with being a student. And books are a huge part of that. So from that perspective, I agree with you. I must point out, however, that I believe your assessment of the new government program, and, for that matter, their media relations leaves room for debate.

    In your post, you point out that the Ontario Government announced last fall that this initiative would be implemented in September. Then, and correct me if I’m wrong, you contacted their office where they again reiterated that the announcement would come next month. So far, this seems consistent with their original announcement.

    This is a program that has tremendous potential to be a value adding resource for students across Ontario, and as such, until all of the facts are announced, perhaps it might be best to reserve judgement.

    As a parting thought, I would also like to point out that this a potential opportunity for students to get free money. Regardless of the criteria, or what comes to light with the announcement next month, I have a hard time believing that this will yield anything but positive results.
