Start Your Rental

Amazon Rentals is a flexible and affordable way to get access to select items for as long as you need them. You'll see an option to 'Rent' eligible items on the product detail page.

To rent an item from Amazon:

  1. Go to the Amazon Rentals store.
  2. Select from the list of available items.

    Note: Please note the due date before renting. All textbooks rent for the semester.

  3. Select the Rent option (by clicking on the radio button) on the product detail page.

    Note: If the Rent Now button doesn't appear on the product page, the item isn't available for rental.

  4. Select Add to Rental Cart to proceed.


  • You have the option to extend or purchase an item you've already rented. You'll never be charged more than the original list price of the item. If your extension charges reach the buyout price, the item is yours to keep.
  • A valid credit card (with expiry date at least 45 days out from rental due date) must be on file in order to start a rental.
  • Gift cards can be used for the initial rental. Credit card may not be charged if the gift card balance can cover the charges.
  • After completing your rental, you will receive email reminders of your rental due date and you can check on the status of your rental by visiting Manage Your Rentals.
