Although it’s been awhile since I’ve now finished education, a whole two years in fact, I a thought I’d share a great service that everyone should know about – Campus Book Rentals. Campus Book Rentals is the perfect service if you need several text books for your course, but really don’t want to spend the hundreds involved in the cost of buying them. Thinking back to my uni days I remember I used to spend well over £200 a term just buying books, and considering I was a poor student, that’s pretty ridiculous!
By using Campus Book Rentals can save you between 40 – 90% off normal bookstore prices, and offer free shipping both ways. You can also write comments and highlight sections (or draw little doodles), just like you could if you owned the book yourself.
If you want to make a bit of extra cash (what student doesn’t), you can rent out your own books to other students. Over one million students rent out their books through Campus Book Rentals, and it’s never been easier. It’s well known that textbooks lose their value by the end of a course, making it difficult to make your money back on them. By renting your books you’re guarenteed to get your money’s worth, and without having to do any hard work. Campus Book Rentals offers every title online, so all you have to do is a quick search for the book and there you go!
Campus Book Rentals aren’t just about helping out students, but they also do charity work, donating over 1,000 life saving cleft lip surgeries to children in need this year in partnership with Operation Smile.
