A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Campus Book Rentals to do a post for them! I was flattered that they would ask me- but- I know it's because that I have a lot of really awesome people who read this blog & they want you all to know about what they do!
While I'm, sadly, no longer a student- I HIGHLY recommend text book rentals! For the last two years of my undergrad program I rented textbooks for every.single.class. Once I discovered the efficiency, the cost savings and the ease of text book rentals- I never went back to paying full prices for books again!
I'll admit it, I was skeptic at first. I thought about "What if I need my book for longer than I rented it for?" "I like to highlight and write in my books- can I still do that?!" "What if I order (by some strange chance) the wrong textbook and need to return it?!"
Campus Book Rentals offers flexible renting periods, allows you to 'mark up' your textbook, 30 day risk free returns, free shipping TO and FROM you and best of all?! You can save up to 90% off of bookstore prices!
Okay, so how exactly does it all work?! I'm going to let the experts explain it to you! Watch the video below for all of the important details!
Got it?! Pretty darn cool, right?!
It seriously saved me SO MUCH MONEY to use text book rental services when I was in school. I know I saved hundreds of dollars simply by renting text books. We all could stand to save some money, right?? I know that we could.
Just for an example, here is one textbook that I needed while I was in school- Intercultural Communication in Global Workplace.
So, here was my option through my university bookstore:
Do you see that?! It would have cost me $208 to buy the book new and still $156 to buy the book USED. RIDICULOUS! $200 for a book?!
Well, that is where Campus Book Rentals comes in really, really handy! I found the SAME,EXACT book available for rent on Campus Book Rentals for $69.45!
WHAT?! This means that I could save between $86-$138 dollars simply by RENTING my textbook through Campus Book Rentals!
If this alone doesn't convince you that you should be renting your textbooks, well, I've got ONE more thing for ya!
Every, single time you rent with them Campus Book Rentals they will donate to Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an organization that preforms cleft lip & cleft palate surgeries on children whose families cannot afford the surgery on their own. Once this surgery is preformed, the children's lives are changed FOREVER.
To recap- you get a great deal, save yourself tons of money AND you get to help the lives of those less fortunate.
Campus Book Rentals in a fantastic organization & comes HIGHLY recommended by myself & many others, so, next time you're in the market for a text book be SURE to check into Campus Book Rentals to see how much money YOU could be saving!
