Some universities have textbook stores nearby to campus which sell used textbooks which offer a significant discount to buying new. Additionally, they will buy them back at the end of the year at a lower price.

If you buy them used and sell it back to them - this helps keep the costs lower.

Amazon also sells used textbooks and buys them back at semester end- I ended up doing this a lot in college in order to save money.

There are websites like Slug Books (https://www.slugbooks.com/) that will help you compare prices. When I was in college, I used one of these to find the cheapest place to rent textbooks, and then I would return them at the end of the semester.
