I'm a planner...I can't help it, I just have to have things planed to a T...so even though school is coming to a close for this year...i need to start thinking, and buying for next. Why wait and have to buy everything at once, and get frustrated because they are no longer in stock!
Sending your kids off to college is no different!! Between bedding, electronics, books, and all the other "necessities" of their first time away from home it can get crazy expensive! One thing I've learned is why pay full price to own a book you use for a semester!!? 4-5 months!! That's the amount of time you spend $150 on one book to use it! Stop waisting your money and Rent a book :) ....Your never going to get even close to your $150 back from the book store, when you go to sell it back [trust me!] ... Renting is a great solution...Here are some of the perks of renting from Campus Book Rentals;
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
How does it work?:
When I was in School I Majored in Psychology, and Minored in Business, and worked full time to pay for it all...I wish i could of rented, instead of spending my hard earned money on more and more books...I could have used that for more important things...like food, and gas...
This Psychology book is $150 if you buy it...rent it from Campus Book Rentals for $29.31 for the semester!! SAVINGS - $120!! That's a SUPER SAVINGS!!
CampusBookRentals.com supports The children of Operation Smile
We're ecstatic to announce our 2011 Making a Difference Program. We have officially teamed up with Operation Smile, an out of this world, awesome organization, that 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. We have committed to donating enough to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. We hope To beat that number, but it's a significant commitment.
So for EVERY book rented starting now, we will donate a portion of those proceeds to Operation Smile with our sights set on meeting and exceeding our goal of 1,000 lives changed. So add that extra book to your cart, and consider this goal as you go back to school this year. Thank you for your support.
