College textbooks are expensive. According to the National Association of College Stores, in 2012 the average student spent $655 per year on them.

Amazon (AMZN) has a way to cut this cost significantly for Kindle owners or anyone with a connected device running a Kindle app: Kindle Textbook Rental.

If the textbook you want is available as Kindle edition, choose the rental period (30 to 360 days) and you get a digital copy for that period at up to 80% off the price of the printed book. How’s that for big ticket back-to-school tips?
