When I started college, my parents didn't have the money to help much so I was left with options of financial aid, working full time, and finding ways to save money where I could. Mostly, financial aid would cover the cost of classes, but there were times when buying all of the books that were required was pretty tricky. I would always buy used, sometimes later in the school semester than I should, and would always sell the books back at the end of the semester, whether I wanted to keep them or not.
I would have loved to find a service like Campus Book Rentals back then!!
I was introduced to Campus Book Rentals recently and even though I'm not currently in any classes, I thought this would be a great service to tell you all about. I know my readers are into saving money and some of you are still in college or taking classes just to keep your education current so let me tell you all about it.
Easy Ordering/Highlight All You Want
Campus Texbook Rentals makes the process so easy with their online ordering and free shipping. The selection of books is huge and you are sure to find the book you are looking for AND that book won't be obsolete by the time your semester is over!!
How Much Can You Save?
I studied Psychology in college so I thought I would give the service a try and see what I would have saved on an Abnormal Psychology textbook
Here's what I discovered:
Rental prices: Summer/55 days = $27.29; Quarter/85 days = $28.55; Semester/130 days = $31.37; or I could pick my own due date for a custom price.
Buying this book on Amazon.com = $106.96!!
I also searched around to a few other rental and purchase websites and found this same book for rent for $29 – $60 and for sale for $58 – $160.
I wasn't a math major, but it seems to me that Campus Book Rentals has a very competitive price scale and I would check them out first!!
My favorite part of the whole process would likely be the FREE shipping, especially because it's FREE both ways!! You all know how much textbooks can weigh and I can imagine that shipping costs can get pretty high. No need to worry about that with Campus Book Rentals.
Making a Difference
You know I'm a sucker for a company that is helping children and Campus Book Rentals did not disappoint!!
Campus Book Rentals has chosen to team up with Operation Smile, an amazing organization that performs life changing cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformity surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it. Campus Book Rentals has committed to donating enough money to cover a minimum of 1,000 surgeries!! For EVERY book rented, Campus Book Rentals will donate a portion of the proceeds to Operation Smile with sights set on meeting and exceeding their goal of 1,000 lives changed.
Whether you are attending college for your first, second, or multiple degrees, or whether you have a child about to enter college, or whether you are seeking to expand your education, or even whether you had to sell back your favorite textbook in college and wish you still had it…
