I am beyond jealous that today's college students don't have to wait in ridiculous lines and hope to find used copies of text books! When I started college WAY back in the dinosaur age, 2002, there weren't many options for text books. It was either you go to the campus bookstore and keep your fingers and toes crossed that they have a used copy of what you're looking for, or shell out full price for a brand spanking new one! I was very lucky that my parents had a college fund for me & I didn't necessarily pay out of my own pocket for these things, but having to cough up amillion dollars & sometimes more, a semester just for books did hurt me when it came to other things that had to be paid for! I was always pinching pennies tying to make my college money for that semester stretch because books were so god damn expensive!
That was over amillion years ago so I can only imagine what text books threw the campus bookstores cost today!
Today's college students now have the luxury of using such services such as Campus Book Rentals!
When you rent books from Campus Book Rentals it's just like having your very own book without the extra costs and having an unneeded expensive book at the end of the semester. I can't be the only one that ever purchased a text book only to be told at the end of the semester that they were switching text the following semester so you couldn't sell the book at the end -_- swear that was a curse of mine because it happened way too often -_-
Allows you to highlight in the rented text books
Flexible rental periods! Great for any college!
Free shipping BOTH WAYS!
SAVE 40 to 90% off books! ( STOP OVER PAYING THE COLLEGE NOW they have enough of your money)
They also donate to an awesome organization called Operation Smile
Operation Smile is a medical organization that helps children born with cleft palates.
Do you already own expensive text books? Campus Book Rentals now has an amazing program called Rent Back. The programs allows college students to rent textbooks they already own to other college students.
Again back when I was in college the school book store would offer pennies for a book that was in new condition that I previously bought new for $300! This Rent Back option will allow the owner to make two to four times the money than what the school book store would offer to buy their books! Pretty sweet if you ask me!!!
Long story short! All you kiddos going into college, you don't know how lucky you are to have book options like Campus Book Rentals & Rent Back! Totally wish they were around in the dinosaur age ;-)

Seriously, I wish this had been around when I was in college. When I think about all the money I spent on text books that they would not buy back at the end of the semester, I could cry.

I am happy to hear Amazon has become a market for used college books. That will help many students who are hurting for cash continue their education.

I think renting text books is genius. They are so experience! If a student can make a little of that investment back, that's awesome.
8/17/2015 10:28:31 am
This is brilliant! Wish they would start this in my country. It will help sooo many students and save loads of money for their parents.
8/17/2015 10:43:53 am
This would be a life saver for any college student or parent having to shell out money for those text books. College text books are ridiculously expensive!
8/17/2015 11:21:45 am
I'm so jealous! "Back in my day" we had to buy textbooks and they were SO expensive! I'm glad there are more options now!

If you think graduating from College in 2002 was the 'dinosaur age' I won't even tell you what year I graduated! LOL
8/17/2015 02:27:10 pm
Such a great program! Saves sudents much needed money and supports a great cause like Operation Smile!
8/17/2015 02:59:54 pm
This is a great way to save. Fantastic for parents and students.
8/17/2015 03:36:17 pm
The first time I know about this, very interesting
8/17/2015 04:52:24 pm
I wish I could have rented my textbooks. I would have saved a lot of money.
8/17/2015 05:51:27 pm
I used to love campusbookrentals for my textbooks when I was in school! They usually beat everyone else's prices, which was great with my budget!
8/17/2015 07:07:38 pm
This would be an awesome opportunity for all the students out there. And they also get to help out a great cause. Perfect!
8/17/2015 11:14:19 pm
I wish this kind of campaign do exist when I was still at college. Thanks for sharing this info. Could help a lot of students.

Campus book rentals are a great help for parents sending their kids to college. I wish they had something like this during my college days. I would also like to applaud them for having Operation Smile as a beneficiary of their program.
8/18/2015 01:08:34 am
What a great program. Textbooks are very expensive and renting them out would definitely make them more affordable.
8/18/2015 01:40:38 am
My son goes to college and we rent his book from Campus Books. So convenient and affordable too!
8/18/2015 02:15:01 am
This is great! I actually am going back to school part-time for another degree so this is super useful!
8/18/2015 02:56:47 am
My husband just bought his books for this semester and U am telling, they are expensive. His books wasn't available in this site though, we checked.
8/18/2015 02:59:36 am
Wow this is an amazing service! I definitely wish they had this when I went to college, it would have saved a lot of headaches!
8/18/2015 03:37:07 am
I've heard a lot of great things about campus book rentals. Thanks for sharing your post.
8/18/2015 04:54:08 am
I remember having to wait in very long lines as well at the University bookstore to get the textbooks I needed. This sounds like such a better way to get what’s needed for school!
8/18/2015 04:56:55 am
When im in college i need to buy an expensive text books but now it can be rentals so many options now, this would be a good life saver to the college student, i pass it to my nephew he's an first year college now
8/18/2015 05:52:03 am
I love that they donate so much to Operation Smile. Such an important thing for kids to be proud of their smiles!
8/18/2015 06:11:35 am
Kids these days are soooo lucky to have a programs like this one! If I could have used a rental program, I totally would have saved enough money to buy a car with. Thanks for sharing!
8/18/2015 06:17:45 am
I love that they do the Operation Smile too. That puts them shoulders above the rest to me.
8/18/2015 06:24:43 am
When I was in graduate school I finally started renting my textbooks. Best thing I ever did. I saved so much money and never had to worry about whether or not the bookstore was going to buy back my books every term.
8/18/2015 06:42:19 am
I think that renting books for college like this is the way to go. I was fortunate enough to attend a university that allowed us to rent the books from the book store for our classes. It really saves a lot of money and keeps your house from getting cluttered up with books that you won't need after the classes end.
8/18/2015 07:30:40 am
There are so many students who can't afford to buy textbooks. Renting them out is a great idea.
8/18/2015 08:02:06 am
I will have to see if this is available in our area. My Daughter is starting her first year of College and her book list is huge.
8/18/2015 10:00:28 am
I heard about this last year! My cousin started College and rented his books. I'm jealous as well. I was in school in 99 and definitely no renting books.
8/18/2015 10:17:46 am
This is such a great initiative! I know as well how books can be veeery expensive, so this is surely a lifesaver!
8/18/2015 10:32:32 am
I really wish they had this when I was in college. I would just split the cost of my books with a friend and we would share the book but this seems like it would be even cheaper than that!!
8/18/2015 10:37:52 am
I rented all of my books last semester from Amazon. So much cheaper than purchasing from the bookstore.
8/18/2015 11:12:31 am
This would have came in so handy when I was taking courses for college. I love how they offer to rent text books. I can only imagine how much money a student can save!
8/18/2015 11:28:43 am
Books cost so much when I was in school! It was ridiculous. I tried to always buy mine used, but it still cost an arm and a leg. This is a much-needed option!
8/18/2015 12:15:44 pm
wow - that is awesome! I too, had to fork over TONS of hard earned saved cash for books when I was in college
8/18/2015 01:10:19 pm
Wow, things have changed so much, as I too, was used to the old ways of expensive new college books or crappy used ones!
8/18/2015 02:19:25 pm
My oldest daughter just graduated from college. I was surprised to learn about all of the different options for books that were available to her.

I love the idea of renting books rather than having to spend all that money on them.
8/18/2015 04:57:49 pm
Thank God I will have some time before we get to this stage in life. Oh he vacuumed today.
8/18/2015 10:57:18 pm
Who doesn't want to save money these days! What a great way to economize and save on books from renting!
8/19/2015 01:49:25 am
Now college peps don't have reason why they were not able to finish their book review or paperwork or reading assignment, they are so lucky to have this kind of service.
8/19/2015 03:07:58 am
I wish they had this option available when I was in college. Ebooks don't take up space and they aren't heavy. No more hurt backs with carrying books around to class.
8/19/2015 09:49:40 am
I'll have to show this to my SO! She's taking college classes. What a great idea and it's awesome that they give back like that!
8/19/2015 03:19:42 pm
I started college WAY back in 2001! so I am even older than you! And I used to try to buy my text books online, bought the wrong edition several times. :)
