College Book Rentals, Who Knew?

I've been out of school for ahem, awhile, let's say.  I had no idea that there was a website out there for college book rentals instead of having to purchase a new or used book for one of your classes.  Of course, I think it's a genius idea and that's why I chose to write about it.  A college student has a difficult enough time between tuition, books, living costs, transportation, etc.  Why not give them a break? is a website that not only saves you money on the books that you need for your classes but, they also save you on shipping because it's free both ways!

Perks of renting your college books:
  • Save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
  • free shipping both ways.
  • You are allowed to highlight in the books
  • Flexible renting periods
  • A donation to Operation Smile is made each time you rent a book
Operation Smile is a charity that donates surgery for children who are born with a cleft lip, palate, and other facial deformities.  This operation has been running since 1982.  They performed over 200,000 free surgeries to children in need. A donation with your rental is even more incentive, if you ask me.

How Does Campus book rentals work?  Well here is a price difference for example of a textbook rental titled, Psychology By Hockenbury, and below is a video that shows you a little more detail for a how to.
