|The amount of money spent in our house on textbooks is crazy.|
Hubby spent hundreds for this small stack of used textbooks that you see here.
The amount of money my husband spends on textbooks each semester is staggering. If you are enrolled in higher education course work, I know you can relate. Thankfully, places that offer text book rentals are becoming more common. One of the best around can be found at CampusBookRentals.com. Keep reading to learn why!
Renting books from CampusBookRentals.com has more than a few perks:
- 40-90% off bookstore prices
- Free shipping both ways
- You can use a highlighter in the books (for my husband, this is a must)
- Renting periods are flexible
- Each rental generates a donation to Operation Smile
- Trusted source since 2007
- Over 1 million happy customers
One thing you cannot help but like about CampusBookRentals.com is that for each and every textbook rented through them, they make a donation to Operation Smile.
Operation Smile is an international children's charity that helps children in low and middle income countries to obtain safe & quality medical care for challenges associated with the mouth. Considering every three minutes a child is born with a Cleft, and that many of those born with one will have many significant challenges throughout their whole lives, it is a cause most decidedly worth supporting. Since 1982, Operation Smile has provided 22,000 free surgical procedures to children and young adults who otherwise would not have been able to afford/obtain it.
The RentBack program is one that I've never heard of before. It's a cool, and profitable-to-you concept where you offer your textbook, and RentBack.com rents it out (offering you a pre-determined amount for each rental). They allow you to use their service to have your book rented over and over again, until your text is no longer in demand. When it's all said and done, you'll get your book back. That means you can repeatedly make money from the rentals, and not have to sell your book(s) back at all.
I for one, am happy with the way options are expanding for obtaining textbooks, and CampusBookRentals.com seems to be blazing the trail for keeping things fresh and new.
