Not In Jersey: Back To College With Campus Book Rentals Back To College With Campus Book Rentals - Not In Jersey

Back To College With Campus Book Rentals

Monday, October 20, 2014

I’m going back to college! Okay, not really. But I am going to a college football game this weekend. I’m very excited to cheer on my alma mater, Rutgers University, in the (relatively) nearby town of Lincoln, Nebraska! And the best part of going to college just for a game? I don’t have to worry about buying books! If you do have to worry about books though, I’m happy to once again share information here about Campus Book Rentals.


Here are some of the perks of renting textbooks:

  • You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices.
  • Free shipping both ways.
  • You can still highlight in the textbooks.
  • Offers flexible renting periods.
  • Donations to Operation Smile are made with each textbook rented – see more on that below.

Campus Book Rentals also offers RentBack, an initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own to other students, which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they’d make through buyback options such as selling their books back at the end of the semester! Isn't that awesome?! Here’s how it works:


One more very cool thing about Campus Book Rentals, as I mentioned above, is that for every rented textbook, they make a donation to Operation Smile. Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the globe. The long term improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. With every rented textbook, Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile. That right there seems as good a reason as any to rent books through them!


I know if I was in college still I’d be trying out this program. How about you?
