Are you a college student? Parent of a college student? Anybody who has ever heard of college? If you are, then you already know just how expensive college can be. I feel like my loans will never be paid off. I remember being a struggling student trying to come up with the big bucks to pay for my text books. Are you thinking – been there, done that? Well, I’d love to offer you some help in cutting the costs for this part of college.
Campus Book Rentals can save you between 40 and 90 % off of bookstore prices!! For instance – I studied Criminal Psychology when I was in college. A book I may have needed for class – Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis by Turvey, Brent E. would cost me between $66.40 and $89.95 through most places. Through Campus Book Rentals – that same book is $47.69. That could save me almost 50 %! For a struggling student, that is a huge savings! And that is only one book for one class – multiply that by all of the books you will need before you finish college, and we are talking tons of savings! Seriously, do the math for your school, but the savings really add up and that starving college student could afford a little more food! *If you find a better price elsewhere, they will match it!*
But wait: It gets better – the savings aren’t the only perks. Campus Book Rentals offers free shipping both ways, you can highlight in the textbooks – something I think every college student does. They have flexible renting periods and donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented. Plus, a 30 day risk free guarantee; something that could be real handy if you end up dropping a class and not needing the book. this way you aren’t out the money! But, if you really like the book and want to keep it as a reference, you can purchase the book for the difference between what you have paid so far and the value at the time you initially rented it.
I love spending money at places that give back in some way, and they do with Operation Smile. What is Operation Smile? It is an awesome organization that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on kids whose families otherwise couldn’t afford it. And believe it or not, this isn’t the only way they give back!
Campus Book Rentals also sets aside $90,000 in textbook scholarships distributed out in the community! And just for fun, they have monthly giveaways!

Still have questions? You should watch this video no matter what – you can tell they had fun making the video!
Are you ready to trade in buying your textbooks that you are only going to use for a few months and then collect dust?
Did you go to college? What did you study? Do you use your degree?
