Want to save your students the most money on course materials? We make it easy with countless ways to reduce costs. Maximize affordability at your school by following our simple checklist! The summer months are the perfect time to explore these effortless options:

Promote Marketplace

Marketplace connects students with vendors who are privately selling a specific title to save them up to 95%. Best of all, this option is already available to your students - all you have to do ask us to advertise it! Talk to your Account Manager about how we can help generate awareness.

Take advantage of Rental

Powered by renttext, our rental program reduces costs by up to 60% while providing the upfront savings your students demand. There are no hidden fees or penalties, either, offering a worry-free rental experience.

Get students excited about Guaranteed Buyback

Guaranteed Buyback is an MBS Direct exclusive that tells students during the purchasing process how much we'll pay for their book at buyback. With savings of up to 70%, they benefit from the lowest cost of ownership available! Explain the benefits of this important program to capitalize on its cost-saving powers.

Join SSI

When your school joins the Student Savings Initiative (SSI), we'll work together to directly affect course material prices on your campus. It's an easy way to make a big impact on students' perception of your school!

Watch for more information regarding OERs

Through a partnership with OpenStax College, MBS Direct will be an official distribution partner of their open content textbooks. These open resources not only provide your students with exceptional content, but will also be an additional low cost option.

Advertise your options

The best way to reduce costs is to let your students know all the ways they can save. Use the free resources available on our marketing website to spread the word.
