College Textbooks

If you're like me, you cringe every time you think of having to buy a textbook from the campus bookstore. Let's face it, buying textbooks is expensive, and most of the time you have a hard time selling it back to the bookstore (at least I did!).

You may remember back in July when I did a post on Campus Book Rentals (you can see that post here).

They contacted me again recently and asked if I would be willing to write another post for them, and I was more than happy to because they have saved me a lot of money, and they can save you money too!

Here a few of the benefits from renting your textbooks from Campus Book Rentals.....

You can save between 40-90% off campus bookstore prices.

They offer free shipping both ways.

They have flexible renting periods.

With every rental, they donate money to an organization called Operation Smile (you can learn more about what Operation Smile does here).

I wanted to talk a little bit about my experience with Campus Book Rentals. I used them both last semester and this semester and have been very pleased with them! For one, I saved a lot of money over purchasing the textbooks. The books arrived in really good condition. They send you packaging with prepaid postage so you can return them free of charge.

The free return shipping was one of my favorite things because it was SO easy. At the end of last semester, I just put the books in the sleeve they sent me and put the package in my mailbox. That was it!

I was also really happy with the flexibility. I rented a book last semester for a class that I didn't realize was a two semester class, and I still needed the book this semester. I was able to go on Campus Book Rental's website and chose the option to buy that book, and I only had to pay the difference between the cost and what I had already paid to rent it.

Here's a little video explaining how it all works!

They also have program called Rent Back where you can rent out a textbook that you own to other students. I haven't tried this out, but it seems like a good idea.

This is how they explain it on their website....

I have definitely been happy with using this company, and I hope you'll check them out next time you need textbooks!
