Campus Book Rentals

As my first semester of college is coming to an end and finals are approaching, I have realized that I have not only enjoyed this semester, but I have learned a lot of cool tricks from other students in my classes and from my favorite college student, Amanda.  That kid has held my hand through most of this's kind of funny in retrospect, since I was the one holding her hand taking her to school on her first day each year.
Ah, life as a mom, in all it's bittersweet glory...darn them for growing up!
One of the neat tricks Amanda taught me was that you could rent college cool is that? I remember long ago when I first went to college, standing in long lines to return books and getting less than half of what I paid for them.  It almost didn't seem worth it.  Now you can rent your college books, what a genius idea!
This week I am getting ready to register for spring semester and with a new semester comes new books.  This time I'm taking the easy (and cheaper) route and renting my books from Campus Book Rentals.  Campus Book Rentals has a large selection of books in various topics, making them an excellent choice to rent from.  They also have free shipping to and from.  Free...heck yeah! Let's face it, college is expensive enough without the extra added cost of books and other materials.  Why not cut some of the expenses by renting your books.  Plus, with each book you rent, Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile, sounds like a win - win to me!

I'm actually kicking myself, because I just looked up all my books from this semester and not only does Campus Book Rentals have them, they are less than half the price of buying used at the book store....think of all the money I could have saved!!!

Just look at this example, here is a book that I used for my child psy class, I paid $74 used at the college book store....definitely a kick in the butt moment.  WOW - What a price difference!!
Here are some more really cool perks of renting from Campus Book Rentals:

-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-large selection of books to choose from
-they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
You can find even more perks and information by checking out their website, facebook and twitter too.
