CampusBookRentals.com has SO Many Great Options!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.


Campus Book Rentals could have prevented this build-up of books for me
(most of  which I probably won't need to use again).

The books in the picture above are just a small portion of old school books that are on our bookshelves. Even those few you see cost a small fortune to buy. When it was time to sell them back, they were either outdated (a new edition came out) or the book store was offering pennies on the dollar for what I originally paid.

With CampusBookRentals.com, I could have rented my books for a fraction of what I paid, and not had to worry about what to do with books I would probably never need again, after the semester was over.

That's one reason to love them. There are others:
  • 40-90% off bookstore prices
  • FREE shipping both ways!
  • You can use a highlighter in the books.
  • Renting periods are flexible.
  • Each rental generates a donation to Operation Smile
  • Trusted source since 2007
  • Over 1 million happy customers
  • 21-day risk free return option


With every textbook rental made through them, CampusBookRentals.com donates to Operation Smile. Having a profound compassion for children, Operation Smile is a charity that believes every child has the right to live their lives with dignity. Through their program, they make assistance available to children in low and middle-income countries, allowing them to obtain safe and quality medical care for procedures such as Cleft Lip. It is worth noting that over 22,000 free surgical procedures have been given, thanks to Operation Smile, since 1982. Big kudos to CampusBookRentals.com for donating to such a wonderful program.






In addition to all of those great perks listed above, there is yet another reason to love CampusBookRentals.com, and that is the fairly new RentBack.com capability they offer, which allows you to rent books to other students. You will get a pre-determined amount of money each time your text is rented out by the company. It can be rented out over and over again until it is no longer usable, and then you will get your textbook back. Doesn't that sound like a great way to make a little extra money, while doing your part to help someone else save money too? Definitely a winning option, all the way around.

I love CampusBookRentals.com, and when it's time for my husband to order books for his next semester, I'm going to remind him to check there first.

If any of the above sounds amazing, exciting, useful and wonderful to you, 
please go check them out to learn more.

I remember back in the day when I was in college -I spent HUNDREDS on books that ended up being outdated by the end of the semester, so I could never sell them back. I wish this had been around back then!

Nicole Ramage said...

where the heck was this when I was i college?!?!?! I could have really used this.

Jeanine said...

So cool! I know so many people
Who spent Sooo much on books, this will be really helpful!

Sandee said...

I can remember spending tons on college books and then get very little for them the next semester. Anything that will make this better works for me.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

I have two granddaughters in college. Books are very expensive

MikiHope said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again--Why oh Why wasn't this company around when I was taking all those science courses--and the accounting courses. I spent an arm and a leg on books which could not even be used the next semester so you could not sell them!! I am so glad they give to Operation Smile-those kids deserve a chance at happiness.

What a BRILLIANT initiative. Long may they prosper. And spread.

Scott said...

I could have saved so much money by renting over buying each year. Why wasn't this around 20 years ago!?!

Shelley Eaglin Eaglin said...

I wish this were around when I was in college. The prices of books are outrageous.

Liz Mays said...

College textbooks can rival the cost of classes. This is such a valuable service!

Pam said...

The Rentback option sounds really handy. I wish I had that when I was in college.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Books are crazy expensive to buy outright! It makes my tummy hurt to think of people shelling out over $100 to rent a book for a semester and they probably won't use them again! CampusBookRentals is definitely the way to go!

Aimee Fauci said...

I think my boys used this company when they went to college. The both ways free to ship.. the best.

Pam said...

This would be such a great way to save money on textbooks. I wish this was around when I was in college.

Dina said...

my son goes to college next year. I plan on using Campus for that!

Chrystal Mahan said...

When I was working on my graduate degree I started renting textbooks. They were so much more expensive to buy than when I was an undergrad.

Ben Butler said...

This is an awesome idea. I wish I'd had this option when I was in college. I ended up with a stack of books that cost and arm and a leg and served no purpose.

Amanda Ripsam said...

I hated paying for my books only to find out I couldn't sell them because they were not going to be used the year after. I still have a few books my favorite book is my college cook book I paid over 200 dollars for. I took hospitality and tourism administration.

Ai Sakura said...

This is an amazing service and I wish we had it when we were in Uni. Those books were so expensive and some were definitely not touched again after one sem!!

Ai @ Sakura Haruka

Heather @ Girl Gone Mom said...

The only options we ever had were buy used or new. Sure wish I could've rented.

debdenny said...

Great way to budget for college. Wonderful idea.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Great for any student on a budget

jaime said...

This is a wonderful service. It would have saved me so much money 15 years ago!

ANNIE M said...

I wish I had rental books back when I went to school. That would've saved me money!

Shell said...

This is such a great program! I remember that my first semester in college, my books cost over $800. I was in shock.

Rena McDaniel said...

My daughter is in her 3rd year of college and started using them last year. It has saved her a fortune already!

Amber Nelson said...

College books are so expensive. Great to have a service like this.

Virginia Higgins said...

I really wish Campus Book Rental had been around when I was in nursing school. The cost of my text books was preposterous.

Growing Up Madison said...

My daughter actually used them this year because some of these college books can be quite ridiculous in price.

Lisa Joy Thompson said...

It's crazy how expensive college books are! I wish Campus Book Rentals had been around when I was in college! It would have saved me some serious money!

Tracy Iglesias said...

Too bad Campus Book Rentals wasn't around when I was in college!

Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly

Amanda said...

I will have to tell my brothers about this! They are both in college and I'm sure would appreciate it!

Pat Hatt said...

Would have saved me a ton of dough during those days

Coolmoms Cooltips said...

I am definitely sharing this post because I spent way to much money on books while I was in College. It was hard on the budget.

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

i am going to need this when my daughter goes off to college next Spring. Books do add up

Danielle said...

Being a college student myself I totally need this in my life. I can't wait to be done with all those high priced books.

Pam said...

This is a great solution to a college student's problems with spending way too much on books. I will pass this info on.

Amanda McMahon said...

I love this idea - I wish they had t when I was in college.

myshelomitashop said...

I did a sponsored post for them too last year, a great company to work for. If this were available in my country I would definitely go for it rather than spending a lot for books that will end up dusty in the corner after my college years.

Kristen Campbell said...

Every time I see one of these posts I wish there was such a thing when I was in college. I could have saved SO much money!!!

Stefany T said...

College textbooks cost me so much! I would have loved a service like this when I was going.

Tracey said...

This is an awesome program. College books are so costly.

Christie C said...

Wish Iv had this back in college! Great way to save!

Debra Rutt said...

Gosh, I remember how expensive books were back in college and then when I sold them back I'd get just a few bucks. This is a great service since college tuition is already so expensive!

alissa apel said...

I wonder if I'll get contacted by them again. I have been twice. Such a great company!

Jinxy and Me said...

I love it that this company is still around. College books are so expensive. It is good to see that college students can still save money if they shop around.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

This is a great way for students to save some money on books. I remember how expensive they were when I was in college.

Melanie said...

Ohh great post, we are just now signing up for the second semester and were looking for some book options, this is great..thanks for sharing, will have to see how much it will help us ...

Candy said...

Books are super expensive. My husband still has all of his college books.

Toni Patton said...

My husband will have to look into this. He is taking a break now but this will be great for the next semester he goes to.

Angie Barrett said...

What a great option for books for school! They are really, really expensive and it totally sucks that you can't even sell them back for a good price.

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

My daughter will be going to a University soon. Textbooks are so expensive so I will make sure she knows about Campus Book Rentals!

Kendra from Headband for Today said...

I'm way past of the point of needing textbooks but this sounds like a great idea. This would be a great option for cutting costs.

~ Noelle said...

my brother needed a book for school and we used them *for a review * they were great and it was so much easier to use than getting frustrated trying to sell a book back that you paid $225 and they are only offering you $5... I DON'T THINK SO

Lois Alter Mark said...

This is such a great idea and would have saved us a fortune when my kids were in college. Textbooks are so expensive.

Colette S said...

I hope this will be around when my kids begin college.
This is such a great resource!
