Whether you are in college or have a child heading to college in the near future, you know that it can be very expensive. The over all cost of tuition, room, board, books and more can really add up fast. There are options to help reduce those costs substantially with Campus Book Rentals.
My first year of college, I thought I had my budget all mapped out, including how much I would have available to eat everyday. When I headed to the campus bookstore that first year, I was completely shocked at the prices for all of my course material. Even purchasing used books at the campus bookstore that first semester was a real hit on my already tight budget.
Here I am years later, and my daughter will head off to college in the fall of 2014. In 25 years, things sure have evolved and with Campus Book Rentals, we will be easily able to afford the books and course material needed for her packed schedule. With a substantial savings of 40-90% of the campus bookstore, Campus Book Rental allows you to:
- Highlight in the textbooks
- Offers flexible renting periods
- Free shipping both ways (to/from your residence)
- They donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rental
They also have a great new program call Rent Back!!! Rent Bank is a new concept that allows a student to rent their own textbooks to other students. It will make you 2-4x’s more money compared to what you can make on the buyback option.
