At the start of the new school term, students are always searching for a good deal on their course materials—and they’ll certainly find a number of sources, both on campus and online. As they research their various options, it benefits them to include publishers’ sites when they search. As student Marcy Robles notes in a recent article on “Bottom line: Always include the publishers in your search for textbooks. Sometimes they may offer better deals and prices that are less than that of the seller.”*

If students are searching for Cengage Learning’s resources, they’ll find them at offers a variety of options, including textbooks, eBooks, eChapters, and rentals. When they order, they’ll receive free shipping on all orders over $25, free fourteen-day eBook access while their books ship, and a free eChapter with the purchase of any eChapter. also offers free online resources when available.

What’s more, when students sign up for CengageBrain’s Extra Credit program, they can use a special coupon code that allows them to save $6 off a purchase of $60 or more on the textbooks, eBooks and rentals they need. And for “Extra Credit,” will donate $1 to the charity that the student selects from our list of three worthwhile charities: charity: water, the Student Conservation Association, or the Pat Tillman Foundation.
