As you can imagine, there are very few award shows out there with a category for “Best College Textbook Rental Site.” In fact, as far as we know, there’s pretty much only one. And just last Friday it was announced that Bookrenter.com has officially won the 2012 About.com Readers’ Choice Award for that category. As About.com’s Awards Site put it:
“The ‘Best Website for Renting College Textbooks’ award is meant to recognize the leader in online textbook rentals…Congratulations on your win, BookRenter!”
We’re thrilled to win any award, of course. But to win an award given by the actual students and parents who use textbook rental sites….well, that makes the award even sweeter. We consider it a resounding validation that between the lower prices, easy returns, an enormous selection, free shipping and some of the best customer service people on the Web, we must be doing a few things right. Rest assured we’ll keep trying to outdo ourselves.
A BIG, HUGE BOOKRENTER THANKS to all of you fine people who voted for us. You guys are awesome. Thanks also to About.com for the opportunity to compete publicly with our fellow online textbook rental sites.
We’ve got some exciting improvements and fun programs planned this year along with lots of opportunities to save even more money than usual. So be sure to check back with us when the need arises.
