Q) What are my options for renting a calculator?
Rent for a semester or school year. Semester terms are four months and a school year is ten months from the date of the order (Example: You order your calculator for a semester on August 15th, we must receive your calculator before December 15th to avoid further charges). You can still keep the calculator longer, you'll just continue to pay a discounted rate until the calculator is returned or the replacement fee is paid.
Q) What if I only need it for a month or two? Like for summer school?
No problem. Select the semester rental and complete your order as normal. Upon your return of the calculator you'll receive a refund in the amount of the difference from the below amount and the semester charge you already paid, shipping charges not included.

You are responsible to keep your credit/debit card and billing information current at all times. This includes having the necessary funds or credit available to cover the monthly charge to your card.

Any fees that remain unpaid may be forwarded to a collection agency at the appropriate time and will also be subject to an additional collection agency fee of 25%. Customers account will be cancelled and prevented from renting in the future even after all fees and collection agency fees are paid. While accounts are in collections, they will still be charged the regular monthly fee and $10 late charge on the same date as the subscription began each month.
If an overdue account is assigned for collection, you agree to pay all reasonable collection costs, attorney fees, and court costs incurred. It is further agreed that all overdue accounts shall bear interest at the maximum rate allowed by law.
