Phiota Offers Netflix for Textbooks – up to 75% savings

New York, New York -  August 2010
Think textbooks are too expensive?  So does Phi Iota Alpha.  So, new for this year, students can rent their textbooks through Phi Iota Alpha’s new, state-of-the-art online textbook rental store, the Phiota bookstore, found at and powered by BookRenter. Renting textbooks typically saves students an average of 75% off the price of the book, which can mean thousands of dollars over a college career, and renting from the Phiota bookstore helps to support Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Inc. 

The store has access to more than 3,000,000 high-quality U.S. edition titles, and 96% of titles priced over $25 are guaranteed to be in stock offered at the lowest prices in the market.  It’s easy to use – once you search for and select your books, you simply choose a shipping option and enter your payment information, and your books will arrive at your door within a few days.  Standard shipping is free both ways, and almost any book is available in 2 days using the Express Plus shipping option.

Members can rent textbooks for any of 5 different time periods, and can always extend rentals or buy books outright at any time, and rental fees apply towards the purchase price of the book.  This means members never pay more to rent than the purchase price of a book.  Members can also write or highlight in their rentals just as with purchased books (just don’t turn it into a work of art), and, like Netflix, returns are always easy and free.

Our new bookstore powered by BookRenter also offers a 5-Star Satisfaction Guarantee.  Members can return books for any reason within 21 days, no questions asked.  Every order is available for express shipping, and return shipping is always free.  Members are guaranteed that they will be happy with the quality of their books (or they’ll be shipped another at no cost).  Members can extend a rental at any time – at the same cheap daily rate.  And, keeping a book will never cost more than the purchase price.

Our new store is in good company, too.  Over 100 college bookstores at schools like the University of Texas-Austin, University of Kansas, Arizona State University have also chosen BookRenter to power their textbook rental stores, so members can be assured of a quality experience along with savings.
