Recently my wife has been thinking about quitting her stressful job and going back to school full time. Of course I support her decision but to be honest, I am not looking forward to spending money on those high priced textbooks any time soon. I recently finished my degree and I spent tons of money on textbooks that were “required” but we NEVER used! My son starts college in 3 years and to be honest I was going to enjoy the extra money saved from not having to buy textbooks till then. However I would never tell my wife that. That is why I was happy when I remembered about a site I was introduced to last year called campusbookrentals.com.
Campusbookrentals.com allows you to rent textbooks instead of purchasing them. This not only saves money but also takes the hassle of trying to sell the textbooks you no longer need.
Here is some other great perks:
– You can save between 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-Free shipping both ways
– 21 Day Risk Free Returns- So if you decided to drop a class or got the wrong book you can easily return it for a full refund.
-Live Customer Support
-Can actually highlight in the textbooks
-Flexible renting periods
-They donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented!
However it don’t end there if you are still holding on to your old textbooks they also have a great new RentBack Program. RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own – to other students… which is wonderful because it makes you 2-4 times more money compared to what you’d make through buyback options! The best part is your single book may rent multiple times, and they pass the profits to you each and every time. And for some reason you do want your textbook back they will send them back to you when their useful life ends if you wish. To learn more be sure to check out www.rentback.com.
