Since 2007, Flat World has saved students more than $401 million on textbooks. Flat World publishes high-quality and affordable college textbooks, as well as provides an online platform that allows professors and institutions to customize the texts to match their courses.

The average price of a college textbook has skyrocketed to $200, hurting students pockets (and still hurting their backs). At Flat World, our digital-first approach allows us to offer our books starting at $20. So students can still access high-quality learning content, and save $180 per book!  This year alone we have saved students over $54 million.

What would you buy with $180 extra dollars?!? In the next four weeks, we want to hear from you!!!

Let us know @flat_world using #whatwouldyoubuy and check out our Facebook page . Once a week over the next month, we will pick our favorite response. The 4 winners will receive $180 towards whatever they want! (if you have ever dreamed of receiving 25 Chipotle burritos to your door, this is the contest for you).

    I would buy the following:
    -A fine ham from this place down the road.
    -Probably some gloves. It’s cold.
    -Jeans for my husband. He’s 39, but he dresses in dad jeans. It’s no good.

    I would either get a hand massage because of all the writing and typing I have done for school or I would buy a Snuggie to hibernate in until winter quarter!

    I would use it for my family’s Friday night movie night. Every Friday me my husband an our kids sit and watch a movie together. It’s a big deal to us. We have pizza for dinner than an array of movie snacks laid out picnic style and watch movies all night. I could do 3 movie night complete with snacks with $180!!

    I would by my girls a trampoline for Christmas. This Christmas will be strapped because I’m attending school, so it would be nice to have a little extra to get them something they’ve been asking for, for quite a while now.

    Since it is the holliday season, I would have to say I would use that money for presents for my 3 little ones. Especially my daughter. She really loves the new commercial that has gone viral with the 3 little girls building a Rude Goldberg device out of girl toys. So I would love to get her the educational set they offer there. The concept is great, boys are allowed to have a verity of building toys but why not girls? If you haven’t seen the video it is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFpe3Up9T_g
