Barnes & Noble College, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Barnes & Noble Inc. (NYSE: BKS), is pleased to provide students heading back to campus for the new school year dramatic savings and convenience on new, used, rental and eTextbooks (both rental and purchase options) at its 647 Barnes & Noble College campus stores. Whether print or digital, in-store or online, choice, convenience and cost savings run deep with Barnes & Noble College’s range of textbook options and study aids:
- Textbook Rentals. With major savings of more than 50 percent, rental textbooks are an increasingly popular option with students: fully 99% say they would rent again from their Barnes & Noble College campus store. Students may rent books either in the campus bookstore or from the bookstore’s website, and have them prepackaged for pick-up when they arrive on campus, reducing the need to pay shipping costs or wait for their books to arrive in the mail.
- Used Books. Students who buy used textbooks save an immediate 25 percent, but their savings can jump to 75 percent if the books are being used for the upcoming semester and they sell them back to their Barnes & Noble College bookstore at the semester’s end.
- eTextbooks in NOOK Study ™ ( www.nookstudy.com/college). Students can save up to 60% on the purchase or rental of eTextbooks and have instant access to more than 2.5 million eBooks and eTextbooks on this revolutionary free application designed to help students organize everything needed to study on their Mac or PC (and soon for the iPad). With NOOK Study, students can markup with highlights, take notes and bookmark digital content in a way that makes sense to them, and study more efficiently.
Last year, the 4.5 million higher education students Barnes & Noble College campus stores serve saved nearly $250 million on textbook purchases and rentals. The company predicts that number to expand during the 2012-2013 academic year thanks to these savings opportunities.

Additionally, while higher education students are saving money at their Barnes & Noble College bookstore, they can also express their support for Habitat for Humanity thanks to Barnes & Noble College’s partnership with the nonprofit organization. Barnes & Noble College will donate $125,000 this academic year in support of Habitat for Humanity’s “Build a Future” program. The program is part of BUiLD, Habitat’s movement to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
