Campus Book Rentals

As most of y'all know, I am smack dab in the middle of my graduate program. Later this year, December to be specific, I will be getting my Master's degree. Yep, it's pretty exciting! But of course, school isn't cheap. And really, textbooks are totally overpriced in my opinion. So when I found out about CampusBookRentals.com, I had to share the news!
Campus Book Rentals offers 40-90% off of normal bookstore prices when you use their site. Annnnddd, it's free shipping! I am SUCH a sucker for free shipping! Another great thing? If you aren't satisfied, you have a 21-day period of return!

I also have to mention something really cool. When you rent from their site, they donate to Operation Smile, which I've talked about on my blog before. Operation Smile does amazing things for children and you can read all about it here.

And of course, I have to mention a new program that Campus Book Rentals offers which is called RentBack. It allows students to rent the textbooks that they own to other students. This means more money in their pocket - 2 to 4 times more money compared to selling the book! This video explains it all:
If you're in school now, or know someone who is, you definitely need to take advantage of what Campus Book Rentals has to offer. Why pay more to buy books when you can rent them? It's a no-brainer!

  2. If I were still in school I would totally take advantage of this! I wish I had known about this in college!

  3. I taught college part-time for five years. I would tell my students not to buy the book bc I taught what they needed to know from it, so they would get the info in lectures bc books (at least in my courses) can be really worthless-- yea I said it. Then, get this, I got a slap on the wrist from my dean because the campus book store was complaining students weren't buying the required textbook for my course. THAT WAS ANNOYING!!! But, I would always tell students about half.com and other sites like you included. Plus, I always encouraged earlier versions because very little changed.
