I remember distinctly when I went back to college how much the books cost. I was going for an Environmental Science degree where the emphasis was on science not politics!! Between Biology, Chemistry, Genetics and the various assorted other classes I must have spent over $4,000.00 on books alone! We were not able to buy second hand books for the science classes—the professors changed the edition each year. Oh how I wish Campus Book Rentals had been a company back then-but they did not come into being until 2007. If they had been around the Genetics book that cost me approx 45.00 would only have cost $18.08!! Go check it out!!
Now you can RENT your books? Yup—you read that correctly—you can rent that book at the beginning of the semester, highlight as much as you would like, and return it at the end, after final exams. And there is a 15 to 30 day grace period just in case! Shipping is free both ways. And there is a 30 day money back guarantee in case you decide not to take that course or the professor decides to use a different book! (Especially if the publisher came out with a newer but not much different edition, which seemed to happen to me constantly) If by chance you decide you really, really want to keep the book—all you will have to pay is the difference between the rental and the retail cost. What a GREAT deal and a definite money saver!
So you ask, how does this work? Just watch this video and find out!!
And starting 2012 they have a new program to help out our students and their parents
“We’ve also set aside $90,000 in textbook scholarships to be distributed to students in communities just like yours. That’s a lot of books, and we hope to touch a lot of students who could use a hand.
So add that extra book to your cart. When you rent textbooks from us, you make a difference.”
Go on in and browse around it is truly amazing-I wish they had this kind of place when I went to college!
And what I really like is they also have a heart!
