Did you know you can RENT college textbooks?

October 20, 2012 in Best of Both, College age

Readers of My Best of Both Worlds know that I recently sent my oldest daughter Kaitlyn off to college.  And while she is doing great there and enjoying her time–I was afraid to open my credit card statement as my daughter had charged her college text books.  Well live and learn as they say and now I know about a site called Campus Book Rentals.  Did you know you can RENT college textbooks?   Yes that’s right RENT textbooks.  You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices, getting free shipping both ways and rent them for what works with your students’ schedule.

The biggest hesitation I had about renting textbooks is not being allowed to highlight–well guess what YOU CAN HIGHLIGHT to your heart’s content and even write notes in the margins.  And it is easy to return the books once you are done using them, just put them in pre-paid shipping envelope and drop them in the mail.

Take a look for yourself at pricing difference yourself by clicking here and then comparing to another website to purchase to own.

It seems that renting textbooks is a growing trend Campus Book Rentals has rented over a million books at over 5,500 campuses nationwide.   You can also feel good about renting from them as a portion of each rental is donated to Operation Smile.  Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities for children around the globe.
