Campus Book Rentals.

It's hard to believe that I graduated University in 2008 with my Bachelor of Business Administration. Completing my degree was expensive, worth it, but very very expensive.!

Each course I took required me to purchase minimum one to two text books, sometimes even three. On occasion, I was able to save a penny or two by purchasing used text books through the bookstore, but they still cost an arm. Trying to re-sell them through the University's Students' Union was a painful process. Now, I have a bookshelf full of text books that I am never going to look at again! At the moment, they are collecting dust and taking up a lot of space. 

I have noticed lately that a number of my blog's readers are currently attending College/University and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do a sponsored post for CampusBookRentals!

Have you heard Campus Book Rentals before? I have done my homework on them and I am quite impressed. Renting your textbooks through Campus Book Rentals is a great alternative to spending all your hard earned money on shiny new textbooks. Plus, by renting your textbooks through them, you will be helping out a great cause too! Sounds like a win-win to me!

Here are a few perks of renting your textbooks through Campus Book Rentals:

» You save 40-90% off of bookstore prices (this is a huge savings!)
» They provide free shipping, both ways!
» You can highlight, underline and write in the margins.
» They provide flexible renting periods
» They donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented!! (I personally love when companies give back and support charity organizations!)

If you already purchased your textbooks, or perhaps you have some laying around collecting dust, you now have the option to rent those out through RentBack!

RentBack is a new initiative that allows you to rent the textbooks you own to other students ... awesome right?!!! By renting your textbooks through RentBack, you can make 2-4x more money compared to what you would make through selling your books back at the end of the semester.

For more information and to learn more about CampusBookRentals and RentBack, you can also watch the videos below!

PS. I am extremely jealous that both these programs were not available when I was attending University because I could have saved thousands of dollars, yes thousands!
