Years ago when I was in college the main option I had when it came to college textbooks was to rent them. We really had no choice… we just handed over our schedule and received a stack of books and a bill.
With Kaytlin in college now, I’ve noticed that many of her required books are not available from the college for rent, but are for purchase only. She has been handing out upwards of $150 for just one textbook! For a college student paying her way through on a $7/hr job, this is a tremendous amount of money.
We’ve recently found that you can rent just about any textbook you need online! How I wish I had known this a couple of years ago when she first started school.
With CampusBookRentals.com, Kaytlin has been saving anywhere from 40-90% off the bookstore price by renting from them! That is a huge savings! Even better, the offer free shipping both ways, free 30 day risk free returns, highlighting is allowed in the books and they offer flexible rental periods!
With spring enrollment coming up this next week, Kaytlin knows that if a book isn’t offered as a rental at her school’s bookstore she can find it at a greatly reduced price (over purchasing) at CampusBookRentals.com.
With each textbook rented from CampusBookRentals.com they will donate a portion of the rental fee to Operation Smile. They intend to meet or exceed their goal of 1,000 lives changed! They call this their Making a Difference Program.
What is Operation Smile?
Operation Smile is 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. They have committed to donating enough to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. With your help they hope to beat that number, but it’s a significant commitment.
