College students and parents, if you’re still buying books from the student book store, read on. I remember when I was in college and had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of text books each semester. My parents, bless their hearts, bought my books for me. Now that I’m a parent I have a greater appreciate for the $400 they shelled out twice a year in addition to all my other college expenses. And most of my books I’d sell back at the end of the semester for a small fraction of what I paid for them. Yikes.
If you can relate, check out CampusBookRentals. You can now rent your text books for the time period you need them and say buh-bye to being robbed by the student book store. CampusBookRentals will ship you the books you want to rent for FREE and you can return them for FREE. Love that. Plus you’ll save 40-90% off book store prices and they have flexible rental periods. You can even highlight your books just like you would if you bought them outright! Here’s the Administrative Law textbook I paid a small fortune for in grad school. CampusBookRentals has is for more than half off!
If that’s not enough, CampusBookRentals donates money to Operation Smile with every purchase. This organization performs life-altering cleft palate surgeries to children whose families would not otherwise be able to afford it. I love a company that gives back.
How does it work?
Another really awesome new benefit to renting from CampusBookRentals.com is their RentBack program. I love this idea. They will actually rent the books that you have bought to other students and every time your book gets rented, you get paid. So you can earn 2-4 times as much money renting books through them than you could if you sold it back to your student book store. Plus you’re helping another college kid save money on their books which is good karma to boot. Genius!
The RentBack Program
Such a fantastic idea and everybody wins!
Winter break will be here before you know it and you’ll be buying books again for Spring classes. It’s the perfect time to check out CampusBookRentals. Save that money for something else. I’m quite sure you college kids have plenty of use for it. 😉
