I don’t know about you, but when I was in university, I was first in line the moment the used textbooks section of the bookstore opened up. The way I look at it, if you’re not going to keep the book for longer than a few months, why pay full price? Sure, books might have a few marks and snags, but as long as the content is in there, that is all that matters to me.Source
Have you heard of CampusBookRentals.com? It’s a totally legit company that saves students money through renting course textbooks and receiving them back at the end of the semester. You can pocket between 40-90% off bookstore prices, take notes and highlight in textbooks, seal up the included pre-paid envelopes to return the books, and always have the option to buy the book if you choose. One of the best parts of choosing Campus Book Rentals is that with every rental they donate to Operation Smile, a charity organization dedicated to performing cleft lip surgeries for children in need.
Here’s how it works.
If you’re the type that can’t bear to part with your books, they’ve also got a new program called RentBack designed to let you keep your books, but receive a little cash by renting them to other students.
They don’t just carry the standard 100-level books. They even stock course materials my husband uses for his studies with Vineyard Leadership Institute. Awesome savings. I don’t know about you, but I’ll definitely be sharing this option with my friends.
