Campus Book Rentals

October 24, 2011

Now this Momma has been out of college for 8 quite a few years now, but I remember back to the day I'd have to go to the store and buy all of my textbooks for the semester.  It was horrible standing in line for hours & spending hundreds of dollars knowing that in 6 months I'd bring them back and get a few dollars back for each of them!

Now there's a website called Campus Book Rentals, where you can go online (instead of standing with hundreds of other people for hours in line) and rent all of your textbooks! Rentals are 40-90% cheaper than at the traditional bookstore & they pay for shipping both ways! You can even highlight in your textbooks without fear of getting charged for it & they have flexible rental periods. 

Now, I will say my daughter has a good 13 years until I have to worry about renting textbooks for her, but I think this is a fabulous idea for anyone who is going back to college or has kiddos that are starting college soon. 

My absolute favorite part of Campus Book Rentals is that with every book rented, they donate to Operation Smile!! That is ah-maze-ing! 

From their website:
"We're ecstatic to announce our 2011 Making a Difference Program. We have officially teamed up with Operation Smile, an out of this world, awesome organization, that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it. The long term Improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. We have committed to donating enough to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. We hope To beat that number, but it's a significant commitment.
So for EVERY book rented starting now, we will donate a portion of those proceeds to Operation Smile with our sights set on meeting and exceeding our goal of 1,000 lives changed. So add that extra book to your cart, and consider this goal as you go back to school this year. Thank you for your support."
