Campus Book Rentals: Save up to 90% on text books!


I graduated college 3 1/2 years ago and I remember clearly how big of an expense text books were.  I had to buy the books then either keep or if I was lucky, I could sell them at the end of the semester.  My cousin however was able to rent text books through her school and saved a lot of money that way!  I did not know at the time, but Campus Book Rentals is available for anyone – I could have saved so much money!  Just search the books available and have them shipped free, straight to your door then return them at the end of the semester!  If you tend to switch or drop classes at the beginning of the semester, don’t worry – they offer a 30-day risk free policy which means that you can return the book for 100% back!  

Campus Book Rental offers books up to 90% off the price you would pay new at your school.  Over 5,800 campuses have been served by Campus Book Rental!  Campus Book Rentals claims to have “nearly every textbook available for rent” – Take a look and see how much YOU can save on next semester’s books!  

See a price example here for a Communication Law book similar to one that I had to pay full price for at my college.  As you can see, the price varies if you will only rent the book for summer, a quarter or a full semester.  

Also make sure you check out the referral program and Operation Smile –  Campus Book Rentals donates with every book rented.  Their goal is to change over 1,000 lives!  Here is what they have to say about the program: 

“2012 is a new year, with a mix of old and new in our making a difference program. First off, we’re keeping our partnership with Operation Smile. They are an awesome organization that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it. The long term improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. We’re honored to support the children of Operation Smile.

We’ve also set aside $90,000 in textbook scholarships to be distributed to students in communities just like yours. That’s a lot of books, and we hope to touch a lot of students who could use a hand. 

So add that extra book to your cart. When you rent textbooks from us, you make a difference.”
