CampusBookRentals {Review}

Monday, April 29, 2013

As you all know, I am a recent master's graduate. Which means that I went through SIX years of university. Yep, over half a decade. And let me tell you - it ain't cheap! We all know that the costs of tuition is higher today than it was even a decade ago. And with tuition costs rising, students oftentimes find ways to save on other expensive things - like textbooks. It seems like there is always a new edition out each year or two. Which always seemed to frustrate me - the professor would recommend the new edition, I would purchase it at full price, and would only find out that a couple paragraphs have changed or a chapter deleted than from the previous edition (which were not relevant to me a majority of the time). And then when it came time for me to make some money and sell my books, the book store would either "buy back" the books at up to 80% off that what I purchased it for (really?? REALLY!!) or I would not find any buyers because the millionth edition was out!

Which is why I am super excited to introduce to all you college and university students an amazing website: CampusBookRentals. With CampusBookRentals, you can easily save 40-90% off of bookstore prices by renting new and gently used textbooks What is awesome about it is that you can use the books as if they were your own - you can even freely highlight in them without being penalized. Other amazing perks they offer: free shipping both ways, 30-day risk-free returns, flexible renting periods.

For example, I compared a book you can rent through CampusBookRentals and one that is available from the publisher. Did you notice the "suggested retail price" at the bottom of the publisher's website? Convinced?

So, what if you have books you recently bought and don't know what to do with them? Well you can take advantage of RentBack, which is a new initiative that they offer. It allows students to rent the textbooks they own to other students. A great initiative since it allows you to make more money as others use your  books. Forget about selling the book back to the bookstore or to other students; with this awesome initiative, it allows students to make 2-4x more money.

And for every textbook sold, they make a donation to Operation Smile. Not only do you save money, but you also help an amazing cause for children with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities throughout the world. And these surgeries are provided for free to children throughout the world through Operation Smile.

I would like to mention that this great company is only offered to US students. However, keep an eye out for when it goes international! Go visit CampusBookRentals and see for yourself how you can save during your studies!
