The rental fee is the same for both new and used Rented Materials.
We only rent books that can be reused; workbooks, study guides, laboratory manuals, periodicals, and other consumable materials are not rented.
If a book you rent from Barnes & Noble arrives with a supplement, you are allowed to use it at no extra cost.
Can you write in Barnes and Noble rental textbooks?
Can I return my rental book to a Barnes & Noble retail store at the end of my rental period? Currently, we do not accept in-store returns for textbooks rented online.
Do I get my money back if I rent a textbook?
You may receive a new or a used textbook, based on availability. All used textbooks will be in acceptable rental condition, as determined by us. If you are not satisfied with the book you receive, you can return it for a refund within 30 days.
Can you write in rented textbooks?
Highlighting is permitted, but please do not write in rented physical books. Remember that rentals are intended for multiple users. As a courtesy to your fellow students, please limit highlighting and do not write in the books.
Can you get textbooks on a Nook?
Yes. You must register your NOOK to a Barnes & Noble account so that you can purchase and download NOOK Books, magazines, newspapers, and apps from the NOOK Store™ and read them on your NOOK.
