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 When it was time to sell them back, they were either outdated (a new edition came out) or the book store was offering pennies on the dollar for what I originally paid.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.

  1. 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!

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  12. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  38. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  53. 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

    ReplyDelete
