Love it? Pls Share it!


College can be one of the most exciting times in your child’s life, and at the same time it can also be one of the most expensive. While the majority of the cost comes from tuition, a large percentage comes from textbooks.  Did you know that with you will pay less than half price to rent your textbooks? In fact, you can save up to 80%! offers new and slightly used textbooks (the same texts as you would find on campus) for much less then what you would pay at your college bookstore. They have the largest selection of textbooks in the nation, and they offer flexible rental periods, live customer support and a 21 day return policy. Better yet, there is no membership fees or any other hidden fees. The price you see, is the price you get. 

How Works

The process is easy, just go to, create an account, search for your books using the ISBN number, place your order and wait to receive them in the mail!  Shipping is completely free, but be sure to allow ample time for your books to arrive, as it takes 24-48 hours to process your order, then depending on which shipping method you choose, anywhere from 5 to 14 business days for the books to arrive.

CampusBookRentals offers some of the most flexible rental plans in the nation. You can choose from several different rental length periods, each of which has an additional 15 day grace period worked in for free. If it turns out you need to keep a text even longer, you can extend the original rental period by 15 or 30 days.  If you need to retake a class you can choose to re-rent the book for 30% less than the original rental price. If you decide to drop a class, and you no longer need the text, even offers a 21 day guarantee period where you will get 100% of the cost back! And once your texts arrive, you are free to do as you wish. If you need to highlight text, go right ahead. Just try to remember that others will possibly be using the same text in the future, so be respectful.   

What Can I Do At The End of the Semester?

Once the semester is over, gives you the option to either keep and buy the texts, or return them. If you decide to keep some or all of the books, simply sign in to your account and select the “Buy and Keep My Books” button. You will only be charged the difference in what you have already paid in rental fees and the cost of the book. If you decide you do not need the textbook, you can easily return it to in the postage-paid envelope they provide!

Giving Back with Operation Smile

If all of that isn’t enough to put a smile on your face, this will! For every book that is rented from, they will donate a portion of the proceeds to Operation Smile!  Operation Smile is a non-profit organization of medical volunteers who donate their time to perform free surgeries for children all around the world that are born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.
