Campus Book Rentals

I am always more likely to support companies that support great causes. In college I remember steering clear of the bookstore. Why go there to pay for overpriced books and gear when I can get them elsewhere for cheaper. I thought maybe those students just don't know about the other resources out there to buy and sell books.

Then I realized my junior year with my roommate who went to the bookstore that she did it because "I am lazy" (HER words NOT mine!)

I actually ended up being the one to show her how to get books online. She loved this because she could do this from her laptop! 

Now to be honest back when I was in school, I did not know about Campus Book Rentals. Had I known a little more I would have looked into it. Here is what I like about them:

You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
Free shipping both ways.
You can highlight in the textbooks.
There are flexible renting periods (quarters vs. semesters, summer courses, etc...)
Best part? The donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented.

There is also the Rent Back Program which could work well for some people and books!

Now I know my roommate would have loved Campus Book Rentals even more! It is way easier than trying to find buyers back online for your books. It will save you money and time. And hey, in college, time is FUN!

I was paid to give my honest opinion of a service. All opinions are my own.

  1. I always just got my books from the library. Thankfully, I went to a small college and I almost never had a problem with them not having the books I needed.
