Breezy Days: Budget Friendly College Books

Budget Friendly College Books

I don't know about you, but I'm ready to graduate just so I can finally escape those ridiculous textbook prices! I have spent on average $150-$200 per semester on books, and being on a college budget..that much money hits my wallet hard.

I really wish I would have known about Campus Book Rentals earlier because of all the perks that come with their site, such as:
+ Saving 40-90% off of bookstore prices
+ Free shipping both ways
+ Flexible renting periods
+ Being able to highlight in the textbook
+ Plus, they donate to Operation Smile for every textbook rented!

Now they have a new program called Rent Back that allow students to rent out their own textbooks to fellow students, so they can make 2-4 times more cash than just selling back the book. How cool is that?! Check out this video for more information on what Rentback is all about.

Hitting the internet to find your college textbooks is the way to go these days, which is why Campus Book Rentals should be your first stop to finding books on a budget :)

End of Finals Countdown: T-4 days.

such a good idea! especially since i pay around $900-1000 per semester for textbooks, but i love keeping them after (i'm weird i know...) so while it's a good idea, it wouldn't work for me!
