Are you Back in School?

Here’s a shout out to my five college siblings back in school!  Isn’t that nuts?  All it takes is a little family togetherness over the holidays to be reminded of how great it is to be DONE with school!  I kept hearing about exams, grades, and research papers over the break, and then started getting those final exam nightmares again!  One of my favorite things to never have to do again is worry about buying textbooks.  What a mess that usually was.  A big expensive mess.


If you’re a student, and spending your entire summer job savings on textbooks is also one of your favorite pastimes, have you considered renting your books?  Here are some fantastic reasons to rent your books from

#1) Free shipping both ways.  Seriously, don’t let shipping costs deter you, because there are none.

#2) You can highlight in your books.  If the way you study best is with a neon glow, carry on.

#3) Don’t worry about your school’s enrollment dates.  The renting periods are flexible.

#4) You’ll be saving a boat load of cash.  You can save between 40-90% off of bookstore prices.

#5) At the same time, you’ll be helping children in need!  CampusBookRentals donates to Operation Smile with each textbook rented.

Operation Smile is a medical charity that consists of medical professionals and other people who want to help, by providing reconstructive surgery and care for children born with facial deformities.  You can learn more about their mission HERE.

Now here’s an interesting new way to keep reaping the rewards of your textbook purchases.  CampusBookRentals has a new program called RentBack (, where you become the bookstore.  Instead of selling your books back to the bookstore for enough cash to buy a pizza, you instead rent your books to other students and get part of the proceeds every time your book is rented.  Sounds like a sweet deal.  Look into it, kids.

And so, my studious little friends, every time you sit down to calculate this upcoming semester’s cost of textbooks, remember that there are MUCH BETTER options!  Remember to look into, as well as RentBack, and save yourself some much needed cash!
