Are you in college, or do you have a grandchild/child that is? Renting books is a lot better than actually purchasing them. How often does a student actually use that book after class is over and they are done with it? Not often! That creates more ways to waste money! Renting books, however, has a ton of benefits!
CampusBookRentals.com offers students a way to save a ton of money! Here are just SOME of the many ways this wonderful program can help:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
Not only is it a great program for those reason, but they also donate to Operation Smile with each text book that is rented! Operation Smile is an international charity that heals childrens smiles (i.e cleft lip etc), forever changing that childs life!
Now you might be wondering, what if I already have text books? What should I do with them? Glad you asked :) There is also a program called Rentback. This enables students to rent out their text books that they own to other students! This is great because that means that student can make two to four times more money compared to what they would get for buy back options! I know when I was in college, the college campus store didn't really want to give me much money back at all when I tried to sell back my text books!
Here is a video on how it all works:
