It's about that time of year again, college students, where you start to study for finals (right??? yes, you should be doing that!). It's also that time of the year where your parents are buying you Christmas gifts, leaving their pocketbooks a little less full to buy your books for next semester. What to do...
Well, one way to help lower the costs of buying book is to NOT buy them. No, I'm not saying that you shouldn't get the books, but why BUY when you can RENT from campusbooktentals.com?
You save 40%-90% off of bookstore prices (which, I remember, are expensive!).
They offer FREE shipping BOTH ways (there isn't much of a better perk than that).
You don't have to return the books in pristine conditions - you can highlight in the books even!
There's flexible rental periods.
And campusbookrentals.com donates to Operation Smile with each rented textbook (a business with a heart!).
Also, if you're looking to MAKE cash, check out RentBack, an initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own to other students! You can make 2-4 times MORE using this website than you would at regular book buy backs - wow! More money for you to buy Mom or Dad something nice for paying your tuition.
Check out how it works below.
I hope you have a great experience with campusbookrentals.com and RentBack. I really hope you save money this way; I know how awesome a little extra in your pockets can be when you're in school! Happy Holidays!
