Anyone that has ever bought a college textbook knows that they can be really expensive; even the used books can cost an arm and a leg!
When I was in school I remember paying SO much for my books, and the majority of them were used! What I didn’t know at the time is that I could have rented my textbooks for a lot cheaper than what I paid (yes, I am slapping myself on the forehead now).
Here are some of the perks of renting vs. buying your college textbooks:
You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices.
You get free shipping both ways on your textbook order.
You can use a highlighter in the textbooks.
CampusBookRentals.com offers a flexible renting schedule.
For every textbook that is rented, a donation is made to Operation Smile.
You can earn money by referring your friends.
For an example of how much money you can save: the book pictured above can be purchased on Amazon for around $165. You can rent the same book for a whole semester for $41. That is a grand total of $124 savings. Just imagine what you could do with all of the extra money!
Renting textbooks seems fairly easy. For more information go here.
