Campus Book Rentals

Have you purchased any college text books lately? If you are a college student, or have or know one, you probably know how ridiculously high priced the text books are. I can't believe the prices of them! I don't know what's so special about them that the prices should be set so high on them. I am an accounting major and recently had to buy books for two classes. I wish I had heard of Campus Book Rentals before buying my books this time around.

Their prices are great! Here's a comparison for you. This Intermediate Accounting book can be rented for $48.20 for a quarter (85 days). I just paid $304.50 through my schools bookstore for this same book excluding tax and shipping. With Campus Book Rentals you get FREE shipping BOTH WAYS!  My two books for this quarter cost $499.09 with tax and shipping. I could have gotten the same books from Campus Book Rentals for only $86.99 including tax and FREE shipping! That's a savings of over $400!
Plus you can rent it for however long you need. You can choose to rent it for summer (55 days), a quarter (85 days), or a semester (130 days), or you can select the date you want to return it. Plus you get a 15 day grace period to get your books back in after your classes have ended. If you need the book longer, you can also extend the book rental time. They also offer a 30 day guarantee. Any book returned within the first 30 days after the order date will be refunded 100%.

The ordering process is so easy! Watch this video to see how it works:

Renting your books from Campus Book Rentals also helps support a worthy cause. For every book rented,  they will donate a portion of those proceeds to Operation Smile. Operation Smile 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. What could be better than saving money and helping this great cause at the same time?
