You probably remember me talking about Skyo recently and how they were giving money to the Thirst Project for each new Facebook like and Twitter follow, providing clean water for those in need. And, you know how I love a company that’s doing great things, so check this out.

Skyo Links Colleges and Courses to Textbooks for Easy Purchase or Rental

When I was in college, we had to register for our courses and then wait for the professor to publish the textbooks that we needed in the school bookstore. Sometimes, we even had to wait for the first class. Ick. That’s why when I heard about Skyo’s newest offering I felt kind of … bitter.

Get this…

Skyo has linked specific colleges and even courses on their textbook site. This means that when you go to their site to buy (or rent) your textbooks, you can look up your college and even the course and make sure that you’re getting exactly what you need. How cool is that?! (Remember buying the wrong version of a textbook and having to go through the pain of returning it? Uh huh. Me too.) And, they’re continuing to add colleges even now!

‘Extra Credit’ Textbook Savings

In addition to free shipping (both ways!), Skyo is also giving “extra credit” savings!

  • Buy 2 books, save 5%
  • Buy 4 books, save 10%

And here’s my favorite part, you don’t even need a pesky coupon code. Just shop for your books and you’ll automatically get the savings when you meet the minimums!

But, that’s not all…
