It’s summer, which means a break from college for a lot of you students. But soon you will be back to the grind, buying textbooks, and getting geared up for another semester. Before you buy all of your books, look into other options! You can rent textbooks from CampusBookRentals.com which has a large selection of textbooks to choose from.
My husband rented a book for law school with this company and the process was easy. They even sent a pre-paid envelope with the book to return the book in (just make sure you put it in a safe place and don’t lose it during the semester!). There was much less cost up-front for the textbook, and we don’t have a random textbook sitting around, cluttering up our house.
Some of the perks of renting are:
- You’re allowed to highlight in the books
- The renting periods are flexible
- Save 40-90% off bookstore prices
- Free shipping both ways!
- With each textbook rented, a donation is made to Operation Smile, which provides cleft lip surgeries to children in need.
Also, CampusBookRentals.com now has RentBack where students can rent the textbooks they own to other students (which can earn them 2-4x more money than just selling the book back could).
