Best Con Around

"I rented a book from Chegg and that experience was great. The book I received had highlighter marks - minimal - no tears, no water damage and normal wear and tear from opening and handling the book itself, great price and return was simple. I would rate that experience as a 10.

HOWEVER, when I attempted to sell a book that Chegg provided an estimated $38 for I followed the criteria given by Chegg to determine the shape of my book. According to the list of standards my book was considered good-very good. Minimal highlights, no tears, no water damage, normal wear and tear just as the one I had previously rented from Chegg.

I was told payment would be processed within 5-10 days and then in small print I see that if I receive no communication and do not check the status within 14 days they will consider my book to have been abandoned. I called customer service on July 11, 2016 and was informed that they had received the book on the 6th of July but that they determined it was not in good condition and would not be following through with any change of money and that they would dispose of the book for me (yeah right) So I requested to have my book returned to me only to receive an email today stating that I can have my book back for the shipping fee of $6.99. Sounds to me like Chegg is used to taking advantage of people on the college student budget and while $6.99 isn't a bank breaking amount, the principal of the matter is priceless.

Number one the book isn't in poor condition - is exactly as you described a good conditioned book! Which is why I checked the criteria prior to making the transaction.
Number two you aren't going to dispose of the book - you're going to keep it and rent it out or resale it.
Number three it shouldn't be my responsibility to pay you to give me my book back unless I was clearly mistaken by the description of the books you accept; which I was not.

This is a well set up con to receive books for renting out and reselling to other individuals. Well played Chegg.

All done, all done!!!

"I love the prices Chegg charges to rent textbooks. I just wish I had found out about them, years ago."

Don't be a sucker!!!

"Don't be a sucker and fall into the trap of paying those insane sky high book prices at the college bookstore. Choose Chegg instead!!! I'm very happy about saving 263 dollars on the cost of just one biology book alone. "

Very Accomodating!

"I had moved and misplaced my books in one of the many boxes. I was charged for the books because I went passed the return date deadline. When I found the books, the Chegg representative emailed me a shipping label, had me mail it back and my money was processed and returned just like they said. Hassle free! :-)"

Do it!!!!!

"If you have any reservations about ordering books from this company, please set them aside. This is a cheap and efficient way to get text books. My daughter discovered this website a few years ago and loved it. So when I decided to return to school, I knew exactly where I would get my books!!! Books arrive quickly and in great condition."

Say YES to Chegg

"This was my very first time using Chegg for ordering books for school. Chegg was very easy to work with-- not to mention the books were priced at an affordable rate! Even when I missed the deadline, they extended it for FREE. Any concerns or questions I had with using Chegg, they made it easy to find solutions. I will definitely be using them again. "

Love them!

"I love the phone calls and fun extra gifts that come with renting my textbooks. It's extra incentives like a tide pod and red bull that keep me renting and recommending chegg to my peers. "

Chegg - Tops For Books!

"Chef usually has what we need and at terrific prices on rentals! Chegg reminds me when something needs to be returned and having the label provided creates the best scenario ever for returns! Very pleased! "

Rating 10/10

Sent them a cheap book for buyback, got money as promised

"I had a fairly cheap book I wanted to get rid of, and Chegg was offering some money for it. I did their buyback program where they send you a prepaid shipping label, and just today I received the money directly into my Paypal account. Overall a great transaction, I'd go with Chegg again."

Best place to get books for school!!!

"I absolutely love Chegg. I've been using the website for the past 5 years and I couldn't be happier with their service! Their prices are the lowest out there, they ship their books VERY quickly, they put little goodies in with their packages, and the customer service is wonderful. I recommend Chegg for anyone looking for a great deal and a great book-ordering experience. "

Read all about it

"Ordered the books needed for class another site only to find out through email that the books were not in stock. The company's inventory was somehow incorrect and showing a different number of books than what was there. I end up ordering the books from Chegg with only three days before the start of class, and yes, the evening before class, the books arrived in time for the first day of class. #ACheggBeliever!!! "
