Sadly it seems like summer just started and yet school supplies are already beginning to cover the stores with school starting back in just a few short weeks. Depending on where you live, you may start mid-to late August or after Labor Day in September.
If you are a college student you likely have already started planning out your schedule and preparing for the larger expenses that go along with going back to school. One way to help go Green while saving yourself some green is to consider renting your textbooks rather than purchasing them outright.
I have thought about maybe taking a class or two during the 2013 spring semester and have been looking around at all my options. I was excited to find Campus Book Rentals.
What Are Some Benefits?
- You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
- Free shipping both ways
- You can still highlight in the textbooks
- They have flexible renting periods
- You can even purchase the book by paying the difference in the rental costs
- They offer 30-day risk free returns (just in case you drop your class)
- Need help finding your book-they have live customer support!
What sets Campus Book Rentals Apart?
For me personally, when I found out that they have a partnership with Operation Smile they had my heart. If you are not familiar with operation smile, they are an awesome organization that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it. Truly they are amazing and the children benefit now but also so much so later in life! So with each book rented, you help to support Operation Smile!
They also offer textbook scholarships to be distributed to students in communities for people in need. This year there fund is $90,000!

If you or your children are headed back to school, why not compare the prices and see how much green you can save while also helping our environment by using a book rental!
