I don’t know about you, but when I was in high school one of the many things they didn’t really tell me about college was how CRAZY expensive the books can be. Some semesters I had fairly reasonable books and others I could have 2-3 books at $100 each! Then at the end of the semester sometimes those books weren’t being reused by the professor so they wouldn’t even buy them back!! That was the most frustrating part.
Those who’ve read my blog for a while, know that I love to be thrifty and reuse items and be green. CampusBookRentals.com is doing just that by offering textbook rentals, that’s right RENTALS. Not only does it save students money on textbooks, but think of the positive environmental impact! So cool!
Some of the awesome perks of renting your textbooks include:
-40-90% off of bookstore prices
-FREE shipping both ways (say what?!?)
-flexible rental periods
-they also donate to Operation Smile with each rental!
Here’s how it works:
AAAAAND there’s more! Their new program, RentBack, allows students to rent their own textbooks to other students, making them 2-4x more than selling back to the bookstore. Now that would have been awesome when I was in college with all those books the professors at my school may not be using, but other campus’ were still using them.
So whether you have kids approaching college, you’re in college now, or maybe you’re like me and you still have a whole bunch of textbooks hanging around your house because “you’re totally going to refer back to them”, you need to check out CollegeBookRentals.com! See if they have the the textbooks you need or will buy back the ones adorning your shelves.
Hope you're having a great day!
