I have rented a couple of textbooks from Chegg. They have always come when expected in great condition. I recently ordered a rental. I was charged shipping, though the order was over the minimum amount so shipping should have been free. Since I was in a rush, I just paid the shipping cost. Then, a couple days later I got an email from Chegg that they were reimbursing me for the shipping cost! Chegg reached out to me completely on their own- I hadn't called, emailed, or anything. I was so impressed with their customer service!! I highly recommend using Chegg!
I actually forgot that I was subscribed to Chegg Study for two months and they STILL refunded the two charges after I sent them a desperate tweet. Can’t get a better return policy than that, anywhere.
First I was like man.... How am I going to afford to get through this round of nursing school because my books are like $2000 and I'm getting real tired of eating ramen noodles. So I was like I'm gonna shop around and see what kind of deals I can cut. I wanted to make sure my next source was reliable because the last website I used only costed me $5 to rent a book but it was pretty sketchy because they sent me a link to download this book in my email and it came from an old nursing home in Hawaii. It was really weird, anyway... I found Chegg and I was like this could be nice, so I went ahead and ordered what I needed.
The book got to me in 1 day AND it came with a Redbull! I mean if I drank a red bull, I would be an example patient that they talk about in this psych book I rented because I can't handle caffeine very well, but I was like this is so awesome! Long story short, I let my 6 year old brother have the red bull and I got to buy myself some nice sushi for dinner instead of ramen noodles with all the money I saved by using Chegg.
No long menu, 5 second wait time to talk to an actual person, representative was kind, fast, and helpful, was able to refund the charge I called about. (Even though I didn't ask for it, AND it was my own negligence!) Honestly floored by how positive this experience was so I had to write a review somewhere.
Not sure why there are an overwhelming amount of one star reviews. I've used Chegg for years and not once have I EVER had a dissatisfactory encounter. No funny charges have been placed on my account, I've never used their tutor/homework service, nor have I ever had to sell a book back to them. They've always received my textbooks on time, and I've always gotten books that have been in good shape, even if they're used. Chegg is a good company, with good prices for textbooks and I'll continue to use them until they give me a reason not to.

I cancelled my account in June of 2019 when I graduated from college. Chegg is denying that the account has been cancelled. I no longer have access to my student email address, so I am unable to retrieve the confirmation of cancellation. Chegg did not provide a service, since no one has logged in or used the Chegg account since June of 2019. When I reached out to customer support, Nate and his manager Adam did not resolve my issue.
So I had an old account in which money was taken out of on 11/29/19 for monthly subscription and it was closed down within 30mins of them charging me. I called, they resolved it and closed it down the next day being 11/30/19. I tweeted them and they said I had violated the honor code which wasn't true. I only use 1 device at a time after I had the same issue with the back in October. So on Saturday 11/30/19, I open a new account using my Yahoo mail by 10:22pm and it was closed by 10:44pm same day. This is fishy and I need my $30 with the change back. It was a holiday weekend for starters and how on earth can I violate a code with 20mins of me opening a new account? I am not having the best experience with Chegg!
I have to wait 2 full days to know if my account will be deactivated or reinstated while meanwhile I'm paying monthly for the service and I lose days because of ** suspicion. People who use this have class pretty much every ** day 2 days in school time is a lot. Big company scam shit they took down free websites as well. They just want all the ** money even if you still pay.
DO NOT TRUST CHEGG. I am the only person who used this account but since I would study on multiple devices chegg took this as me sharing my account with others. I had gotten emails asking me to change my chegg password as they believed that I had an "unusual amount of activity". I only used this account for one class and did not even use it every other day but Chegg was constantly locking my account and forcing me to change passwords. Then on the date of my next payment I was charged for a full month's worth of use but later had my account DEACTIVATED the very next day. This website took my money for a month's worth of access and then decided to terminate my account. DO NOT BUY A CHEGG SUBSCRIPTION. Your best bet is to ask your professor for homework help or your peers if you want to not have your money stolen.
I use this site to double check my homework solutions for classes. I would say the solutions provided are correct about 60% of the time. Also, if you log in on multiple devices, expect to have to reset your password once a week. They are afraid of people sharing logins, which I understand, but I explained to customer service no one else uses my account. They then proceeded to completely lock my account and not even let me reset my password. I would find a different, more reliable site for the money.
