Cutting College Costs with Campus Book Rentals
Renting college textbooks through Campus Book Rentals can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices. That's a nice chunk of change back in your pocket each semester!
You can check out the price of any book and contrast it immediately and also find flexible pricing based on your needs. For example, "Models for Writers" (a popular college book) current retails for $45.93 on Amazon, is likely $5-10 higher at your college campus bookstore, and is only $18.06 to rent for a semester from Campus Book Rentals.
Campus Book Rentals also offers free no-hassle shipping both ways, flexible renting periods, and even the ability to highlight in the textbooks, which makes text book rental as close as you can get to owning the book, only at a fraction of the cost.
One of the best things I found about renting my college books is I didn't have to hassle with returns at the end of the year... that is if the college actually paid for a return. Most of the time I found out the book was not being bought back because a new edition was coming out or the professor chose a new course book to replace the old. Terribly frustrating! So much easier to save all the money up front with rentals and not have to worry about trying to get some piddly amount of money (or no money!) back at the end.
Another advantage is being able to exchange the book worry and hassle-free if I chose to drop and add classes (for Campus Book Rentals, it's a thirty day guarantee.) This gave me the opportunity to review the books prior to class, too, to decide if this is truly what I wanted without having the worry about breaking a seal on a new college book and potentially devaluing my return.
If I had one important tip to share on cutting college costs, this is it - rent textbooks! You and your pocket-book will both benefit from this smart money-saving choice.
