Campus Book Rentals is a company I wish I had known about 6 or 7 years ago back when I was in college! I can’t tell you how much money I wasted buying books from my campus book store…some books were close to $300 and I don’t think I ever paid less than $100 for the cheaper ones. So here’s the idea of Campus Book Rentals: you rent the books you need at a fraction of the cost with flexible renting periods. Want to keep your book at the end of the semester? No problem, you just pay the difference between the rental and purchase and the book is yours to keep. Campus Book Rentals even offers free shipping both ways! You are even able to highlight in your books if that’s something that helps you study (it helps me imensley!). With the largest selection in the United States and live customer support you can’t go wrong. Campus Book Rentals also has a new feature available at RentBack.com. As a student with a book to sell, you can now sell directly to other students in need of your old book and receive typically a higher payout than other buyback options. What a deal!
Every purchase through Campus Book Rentals generates a donation on behalf of Campus Book Rentals to Operation Smile. Every 3 minutes, a child with a cleft lip or cleft palate is born. The rate of death before age one for these children is 1 in 10. That’s a staggering number! Operation Smile helps the quality and quantity of life for these affected children. My ex-step-father was born with both cleft lip and cleft palate and I can tell you from personal experience that it is a condition that causes life-long issues. Even after multiple surgeries, my ex-step-father still had a hard time with speech, his appearance was noticeable, and he seemed to be very prone to sinus infections. Operation Smile helps provide care and even necessary surgeries to not only extend the lives of these children, but to give them a better quality of life. A simple purchase of text books you already need can help provide a priceless gift to children and families affected by cleft lip and cleft palate. Make sure you check out Campus Book Rentals next time you need text books and help someone less fortunate while you help yourself.
