Thinking back to my college days, one of the things I dreaded the most was the trip to the bookstore each semester. Shelling out hundreds of dollars on textbooks was hardly the highlight of my college experience. I chose used books when they were available, but the discounts were small. I scoured the bulletin boards on campus hoping to find a student selling the titles I needed for less than what the bookstore wanted. Once I was finished with the books, I could sell them back to the bookstore for a fraction of the price I had paid or deal with the hassles of trying to sell them myself. Several times I went to sell the books to only to find that a new version had been released and the resale value of my book had dropped significantly.
These days, there are more options. You can buy new and used textbooks online. Even better, you can rent them for a fraction of the cost. CampusBookRentals.com offers textbook rentals at a savings of up to 90%. Ordering online is simple and you’ll receive your books in 7-14 business days (expedited shipping is available at an additional cost). Once you finish your class, simply return the book in the prepaid envelope provided.
Here’s a humorous yet helpful video that answers many frequently asked questions about textbook rental.
