College is a great time in life, but I think everyone can remember how discouraging all of the costs were! College students have to pay their own living expenses (usually for the first time) tuition and fees, which can be thousands of dollars. Then when they think they have everything paid for they go to class for the first time and realize…textbooks! Oh no!
Textbooks are interesting tools. Most of them cost around $100. Students use them for 3 months. Then they try to sell them back to the bookstore for $10 or $0 because there’s a new edition. What a pain.
But guess what! Thanks to technology, (I love technology) there is a better way! Now students can rent textbooks for a small portion of the cost!
Campusbookrentals.com has been renting to students since 2007. It was started by a college student from Utah who was frustrated with paying huge amounts of money for textbooks! Their service has become very popular because it is super cheap, and there is FREE SHIPPING both ways! The customer service is great. The rental periods are very flexible, you can choose how long you want the book and there is a 15 day grace period. You can highlight in the textbooks. The best part is that you save 40-90% off of the price you would’ve paid at the bookstore (or amazon)! Click here to see an example.
Another good reason to rent from CampusBookRentals.com is because you’ll be helping to save lives at the same time. They donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented. They have partnered with Operation Smile to provide 1,000 cleft lip and palate surgeries to children in need.
