CampusBookRentals - Your Textbook Alternative

Posted by Valerie's Reviews at 9:08 AM

Are you are someone you know a college student? Do you find that buying textbooks is too expensive? I have found the site for you. At CampusBookRentals you can rent your textbooks at a fraction of the price instead of buying them.

Campus Book Rentals - your textbook alternative

CampusBookRentals was founded by a college student who knew there had to be an alternative to purchasing your textbooks. They have been a trusted textbook rental source since 2007 and were one of the very first companies to begin renting textbooks to students. 

When you rent your textbooks from CampusBookRentals you will save 40% to 90% compared to bookstore prices. And if you are worried about shipping costs - don't be, shipping is FREE both ways!

Think you can't highlight in your books if you rent them? Think again! CampusBookRentals allows you to highlight, underline and take notes. Plus there are flexible renting periods, cost varies on how long you keep each book. They also offer a 15 day grace period as well as the ability to extend your rental right on the website.

If you decide you really need to keep the book you just rented you just pay the difference with your rental fees being put towards the price. Plus there is a 30 day return policy where you can return your books at no cost for any reason, such as a dropped class.

Go to the website and search for the book you need. Let's say you are taking College Algebra, I went and found this book:

College Algebra, Lial, Margaret L. and Hornsby, John, 0321499131

And if all that wasn't enough to convince you, CampusBookRentals also donates to Operation Smile with each textbook rented. So it's a win-win for everyone!
