Friday, April 13, 2012 : Rent Your Textbooks & Save Money

Hey college students! It's never too early to start thinking about the summer or fall semester and how you're going to pay for all those textbooks. Have you considered renting your textbooks next semester? I know when I was in college, paying for textbooks was sometimes more than my tuition! In this economy especially, I'm positive you are looking for any and all ways you can scrimp and save, so this may be a great option for you.

CampusBookRentals is an excellent textbook alternative to buying your college text books. Like me, you probably assumed that buying was your only option. Why buy when you can pay less and rent? Yes, that's right! Rent your textbooks! After all, how much do you really get when you sell them back (if they even take them at all!)? Here are just some of the fabulous perks of renting from CampusBookRentals:

-Save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-Free shipping both ways
-Can highlight in the textbooks
-Flexible renting periods
-Live Customer Support 
-Price Match Guarantee

They've been around since 2007, and have rented out over 1 million text books already! CampusBookRentals is a well-established textbook rental company that has been tried and tested by plenty of college students with great success. At the end of your rental period, you can even choose to buy any of your rented books, with your paid rental fees applied to the cost to buy it.

Although my college days are over, I decided to take a look at a few rental options to compare costs. I really enjoyed my Humanities courses, so I compared a few prices and found this great deal for this book, The Western Humanities. This book sells for a whopping $92.96 on today. But you can rent it for a whole semester from CampusBookRentals for just $24.93! That's an incredible savings of 74% off!

As if you needed any more reasons why renting your text books is favorite part about CampusBookRentals is how they are saving lives through donations to Operation Smile. With each textbook rented, a donation is sent to Operation Smile to help pay for life-changing cleft lip surgeries for children whose families would otherwise not be able to afford. CampusBookRentals has committed to donating enough for a minimum of 1,000 surgeries but they would love to surpass that goal. That's just icing on the already delicious cake when you decide to rent from and save lots of money.
