Renting your school books!

With the end of the school year approaching some of you, or possibly your family members, may be heading off to college soon! It's an exciting time but unfortunately a very EXPENSIVE time as well. 

If you are looking for ways to stretch your school dollars, consider renting your text books!

A great place to rent school books is Campus Book Rentals

Why would you rent books??

Well, for one, it's sooo much cheaper than buying books!! You can save crazy amounts of money and if you change your mind and decide you want to keep the book, all you have to do is pay the difference! Campus Book Rentals even has a 30 day risk free trial period! Return your books for any reason within 30 days and you'll get a full refund! That's pretty sweet!!

If you are worried about renting books because you like to highlight and write notes in your books, don't worry! When renting from Campus Book Rentals you CAN highlight and write in your books!!! They just ask that you do it respectfully.

There are no sign up fees, registration fees, or sneak up and bite you in the back fees {{and honestly it sounds like they are pretty lenient if you happen to get your books back to them a little bit late}}.

They have a great selection of books and are currently serving over 5,500 schools, so they must be doing something right!

Another really great thing about Campus Book Rentals is that they are teaming up with Operation Smile!

This year they will be donating enough money to cover a minimum of

1,000 life changing cleft lip surgeries

They will be donating a portion of the proceeds from EVERY BOOK rented to meet and hopefully exceed the goal of 1,000 surgeries! You can save money on books and feel good about helping families that otherwise could not afford these kinds of surgeries! Personally, I think that's pretty awesome!

So if you are a student....or just have a desire to be more educated:) Hop on over and consider using

You can also find them on facebook and twitter!

It's worth looking into! It's a great way to stretch your budget!

  1. Such a good idea! We're all going to have to find ways to trade, rent, recycle and donate our possessions...we're a nation of big houses filled with stuff and renting college texts is so much better than paying retail for them.
