Campus Book Rentals Saves

Updated on December 9, 2013

Life versus The Funds

It's that time of year where money gets tight but school is still an important part of your life. Trying to decide what is important and what isn't is a tough decision when you want to experience everything life has to offer. Finding the funds to make the trip to see the family for the holidays, or to buy that special someone the perfect gift can easily be overridden by the overwhelming feeling of school fees and book prices.

Something to help take the load off is Renting some of your college textbooks could help you save anywhere from 40-90% off bookstore prices! That is a huge savings when you consider how expensive most of those books are! When you add in the fact that it is free shipping BOTH ways it doesn't sound like it could get any better, but it does! Not only do they have flexible renting periods but you can also highlight in the books as well as if it were your own. And they offer a 21 day full refund policy!

The Real Deal

All of this sounds pretty magical but that isn't even the best part. If you read my previous post you know that CampusBookRentals works with Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that helps correct cleft lips, and cleft palates. It is definitely a worthy charity to donate to and for every book you rent you are also helping put a little more toward charity and that should make you feel good. Campus Book Rentals has committed to donate a minimum of 80 additional surgeries between June 2013 and June 2014.

Rent Back Make Money

If saving money sounds great, what about making money? What happens to all the books you already purchased before you started renting? Why not rent those through Campus Book Rentals Rent Back program to earn a little extra money for other things you want? With their rent back program you can make up to 2-4 times more than you would if you went through a buy back program! It's pretty simple, every time your book gets rented, you get paid!

All of this sounds like the perfect recipe for a wonderful experience at college with a little less weight on your shoulders when it comes to book fees. There really isn't anything wrong with that!

      I am still shocked by the sticker price of used books when you try to buy them, I would absolutely hate to have to pay full price for a new one. YIKES!
