If you have or are attending college then you know how expensive the text books can be. I wish I would have known more of my options while in College of how to get text books. I bought as many books used as I could to save a little bit of money. I was unaware at that time that you were able to rent the text books to use while in College. Now that I am aware of this great option I want to share the information with everyone so they can save as well. Campus Book Rentals is a great site where you can rent your text books.
Perks of renting your text books:
-save 40-90% off of the bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-your able to highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
-etc...(you can find more perks out on the website)
They also offer a great RentBack program that you can use as well. RentBack is a newer program that allows students to rent out the textbooks they own to other students. Which is a great idea because it helps make them 2-4 times more money then they would make through the buyback options!
Another great program that Campus Book Rental offers is their work with Operation Smile. What this program is, is that with each text book rental, a donation is made to Operation Smile, who in turn, provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for kids around the world. Kids who otherwise wouldn't be able to receive treatment are now getting the help they need because of Operation Smile.
