Rent Textbooks with Campus Book Rentals

One aspect of college that makes me glad I attend way back when is the cost of tuition. College was actually affordable when I attended which is a good thing since I put myself through school. That is no longer the case these days. But some things never change like the high cost of textbooks. I remember searching the book store for used books in good condition to save money when I was an undergrad student. 

By the time I was in grad school, there were text book rental companies floating around and I decided to try it out. I discovered that renting textbooks was the only way to go. Not only did it save me money, but I didn't have to try to sell my books when the class was finished. This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Campus Book Rentals. All opinions are mine. 

When you rent textbooks at Campus Book Rentals, you can save up to 90% compared to buying textbooks.You can select from three different time lengths for you books. I like this since I usually took summer school and the cost for books is less through Campus Book Rentals during the summer than during the school year. Which makes sense since you need the book for a shorter period of time.

Plus Campus Book Rentals makes a donation to Operation Smile with every textbook they rent. Operation Smile is an international charity that saves child's smiles. Every 3 minutes a child is born with a cleft palate, which Operation Smile fixes.  It is a great charity that gives children a better chance at life. 

Some perks to renting textbooks with Campus Books Rentals. 
  • save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
  • free shipping both ways
  • you can highlight in the textbooks
  • flexible renting periods
  • they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
Campus Book Rentals has a RentBack program that sounds amazing! You can make more money through their RentBack program than selling your books at traditional book stores. Watch this video to see how it works.

Give Campus Books Rentals a try next semester and save money while helping out a great cause.
