Are you in college or do you have a kid in college? If so, you know how expensive college tuition can be. Add to that the price of textbooks and it gets even more out of hand.
I wish I had known about CampusBookRentals when I was in college. I would have definitely used them. It’s a great idea and was started by a student himself who knew there had to be a better way.
You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices and get free shipping both ways. When you’re finished with them, you just pop the books into the pre-paid shipping envelopes. Super easy and quick. The rental periods will accommodate you and your courses. You can also extend your rental period if it turns out you need them longer than anticipated.
And, though you may be renting, you can underline, highlight and take notes in them just as though these were your own books that you’d bought. The only difference is in the money you’ll save!
I really love this idea and will be suggesting it to any students or Moms with students.
CampusBookRentals was one of the first companies to begin renting textbooks to students. They’ve rented over 1,000,000 textbooks at over 5500 campuses nationwide.
They’ve been mentioned in the New York Times, CNN, the Wall Street Journal and Newsweek and have the largest selection in the nation.
Here is an example. Pick the book you want. You can search by author, title, keyword or isbn number. Check out Statistics for Management and Economics. The list price for this book alone is $211.95. Your price to rent it for an entire quarter would be only $42.28. Again, rental times are flexible and all books are sent in good condition. They also have a 30-day return policy for a full refund should you change your mind, no questions asked
And, here is one of my favorite parts. CampusBookRentals has teamed up with Operation Smile, an awesome organization that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it. For every book rented, they will donate a portion of those proceeds to Operation Smile with the goal of meeting and exceeding 1,000 lives changed.
Saving money and helping others at the same time, what could be more perfect?
