Calling all college students: Save money by renting text books @textbookrentals #spon

Not only am I a blogger, but I also work in Higher Education. I see students spending $400-600 on text books per semester. Since I am all about saving money, a great way students can save a few dollars is to research whether buying or renting textbooks is the best solution for them. I encourage students to compare all their options, the only way they will know if getting the best deal possible is to know all their options. Renting text books is a on of those great options!  It can save some money, sometimes over half the price of the book. We all know college is expensive, so save when you can!

One book I used in college cost me over $100! It was Calculus by Smith, Robert T. and Minton, Roland B. textbook. Well I checked it out and this book is going for $117 on another popular book site, but you can rent it on Campus Book Rentals for $57.74.   That is a nice chunk of change you can save by renting!

Some perks of renting text books at Campus Book Rentals vs. purchasing :
  • save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
  • free shipping both ways (no more waiting in lines for 2 hours at the campus bookstore)
  • did you know you can even highlight in the textbooks!
  • flexible renting periods (rent by quarters, semesters or even for summer term)
  • 30 day risk free guarantee. Return your book for any reason within 30 days for a full refund.
They even have monthly giveaways, textbook scholarships, shirts, and other prizes. Registration is free and you do not have to be a paying customer to win.  They are all about the students!!!

But wait it gets better! They even  donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented!  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. So by renting a book, you are not only saving money, but also helping others at the same time!
