Campus Book Rentals

Jul 29, 2012

I can't believe it's almost time for school to start again! If you haven't already heard me mention it a hundred times, Ronnie's currently in school so that means he won't be a SAHD anymore, he'll be back to his busy student life soon! But going back to school also means spending a ton of money on tuition, books, and more. We're on a major budget and because of it, Ronnie has been using for the past few semesters and we highly recommend it. I really wish I (ok, my parents) had known about book rental sites when I was in college. Were they even around that long ago? ha! It would've saved them so much money and I wouldn't have stacks of books still hanging around that I'm better off keeping than selling for a measly amount.

Renting books has really been such an easy process for Ronnie! It's so nice to just pay a small rental fee for each book instead of shelling out hundreds of dollars for a book he'll only use one semester (and sometimes not at all. Why do some professors do that?!). All he does is order and the books are shipped to him for free and then at the end of the semester he ships them back with pre-paid shipping labels.

I don't know what books he'll need this semester but to show y'all an example, I studied Criminal Justice so I just grabbed the first CJ book I found on their site. You can purchase this book for $139.85 or you can rent it from them, FOR THE WHOLE SEMESTER, for just $36.14! Honestly, why would you even still buy your books?

Not only do you save 40-90% off of bookstore prices and get free shipping both ways but you're also allowed to highlight in the textbooks and they have really flexible renting periods.

So if you're in school, definitely try out! I know when I go back to school when Ronnie has finished, I will definitely be using this site!

WOW! I wish I had know about them. It took me 2 years to realize I could buy them used online for much less than the book stores.
