As a parent of four I know how expensive textbooks can be. I remember I was thrilled that every semester I was in school my supervisor would give me a $50.00 bonus to help with my textbook costs. Now, we all know that isn’t much at all, but every little bit helps. Now, my own children are buying textbooks in high school and college, and finding ways to save money is just as important then as it was when I was a single parent going to college and working full time. That’s why I was thrilled to find out about CampusBookRentals.com. It gives our family the chance to save on textbook rentals and it’s good for the environment. It’s got some other perks too – but I’ll tell you all about those later.
Here’s some of the benefits of using CampusBookRentals.com:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-donations to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
Let me give you an example. I could purchase “The Complete Works of Shakespeare 6th edition” online bookstore for about $81.31. Or I could rent it for a semester, quarter, specified period of days or state your own timetable. The rental on CampusBookRental.com is approximately t $40.00 for the semester. That’s a savings of 50%, I didn’t pay full price and I don’t have to remember (or my children don’t) to return the book to the bookstore at the end of the term to make pennies on what they paid for it.
Some other benefits include:
- saving money up front on textbooks
- reducing, reusing and recycling (this one really appeals to me)
- referral perks for sending your student friends that way (so you make money)
- and you can also make money on the Rent Back program.
What’s the Rent Back program? This one you really want to know and share with your college student child.
- Go to RentBack.com (a division of Campus Book Rentals)
- Find your book title and then print out the FREE shipping label.
- Ship it to them and they rent it out to other students.
- Every time YOUR book is rented out YOU make money!
So, you save money and make money on your textbooks. You get the books you need, they are shipped for free (no expensive trips to the campus bookstore) and you can even highlight them!
Last but not least this is good for the environment because there is less waste and with every book rental a donation is made to Operation Smile.
I wasn’t a math major but even I can see that is a whole lot of benefits.
