Time for Textbooks!

Its been years since my latest “First day of School”, but I still get butterflies of excitement when I think about all the back-to-school shopping, new roommates (or a new batch of students), exciting classes, new clothes, and a fresh start!  I love new beginnings!   Not that I’m at all ready to kick my boy out of the house, but I’m anxiously looking forward to my son’s first day of school so that I can relive all the excitement and start all over at the beginning.  Chances are, you have kids of your own, and you’re swimming in the sea of back-to-school anxiety as you shop around for this and that.  By chance, do you have any college kids this year?  Are you completely overwhelmed with the tasks of apartment searching, schedule arranging, apartment stocking, and last life-lesson teaching?  And have you gotten to that awful part of college called “buying textbooks”?  Yuck!  NOT my favorite part of college.

When I was in college, I quickly got fed up with the prices of full price books and started shopping around at eBay and other used book stores, but it ended up being a lot of receipts, a lot of shipping fees, different return policies, delays, wrong editions, etc. etc.  Let me help out your cute little college kid with a little tip.  Have you thought of renting your child’s books?  CampusBookRentals can save you 40-90% off bookstore prices!


You’ll be glad to know  that shipping is free both ways, so the price you see listed is all you will be charged.  You also don’t have to worry about lengthy or unique rental dates if your child will be attending a college or university with particular semester dates.  Aka, early start dates, exams late into the summer, Spring breaks, etc.  CampusBookRentals has very flexible rental periods so you don’t have to return your books before exams.

If you have an artist on your hands — someone who loves to go crazy with the highlighters — no fear.  You can feel free to highlight in your textbooks as if you owned it.  There is also no cost to sign up, no memberships, and no hidden fees to bite you.

What’s more: CampusBookRentals donates to Operation Smile with each textbook rented!  Get cheap books AND spread a little good by helping heal children’s smiles, primarily through reconstructive surgery and related medical care for children born with facial deformities like cleft lip and cleft palate.  They work in over 60 countries in providing free surgeries and creating a lasting global impact!

So maybe you fall in love with one of your classes and really want to keep your book for future reference and a distinguished place on a shelf in your future office.  No problem.  You can keep the book and you’re only charged the difference between what you already paid to rent the book, and the value of the book at the time you initially rented.

Here’s another cool program that works in conjunction to book rentals: RentBack (www.RentBack.com).  Just like it sounds, if you have a bookcase of textbooks that you were unable to sell back to the bookstore (even for the mere $10 it usually came out to be!), you can become a little bookstore yourself and rent your books to other students that may need them!  Every time your book gets rented, you get paid, again and again.   You can end up making 2-4x more money compared to what you’d make through buyback options.  Sweet!

This all sounds like a no-brainer to me.  Save yourself a LOT of runaround and start your love affair with textbooks at CampusBookRentals.com!
