Campus Book Rentals

It’s that time of year again. As students everywhere prepare for back to school, so college students and their parents start to add up the cost of another semester of textbooks. Course books are one of those things, you can’t live without them, but you really don’t want to spend out all of that money on something you’ll never use again. So what do you do? You turn to Campus Book Rentals.

Why go out and buy those books when you can rent them from Campus Book Rentals for 40-90% off of bookstore prices? Over 1 million students from 6,000 campuses rent their books from Campus Book Rentals – so they must be onto something.

Campus Book Rentals provide you with free shipping both ways, so no need to worry about expensive shipping costs and they even allow a 21 day, no hassle money back guarantee. That way if you drop your class, order the wrong book or just change your mind about the rental, you can send the book back, without being charged and you won’t even pay for shipping. I’ll give you an insider hint about the return shipping – keep your label inside the book or in a safe place. There’s nothing worse than spending three days wondering where the heck you put that return label!


Rental periods are flexible (a semester, a quarter or a summer), only begin on the day you receive the book and also have a 15 day grace period – so if your exam is a bit later than expected or you need the book for just a few more days – no problem! There is also the option of extending your rental period or re-renting your book at a discount and, if you come to the conclusion you would like to keep the book, you can. You will be charged the cost of the book minus any rental fees you have paid – so it doesn’t cost you any more to rent the book first.

The warehouse is well stocked, and they also have partner organizations to help them fulfill your textbook needs – just take a look at their warehouse – I’d give my right arm to have ten minutes and a shopping cart in here!

“But what about highlighting?” I hear you ask “I like to mark the important parts of my textbooks.” No problem. Campus Book Rentals allow you to note & highlight in the textbooks – just as if they were yours.

If you have any kind of question, issue or problem, you can call them up or chat live online. Their excellent customer service team will make sure your questions are answered, your needs are met and your problems solved. (Within reason of course!)

Campus Book Rentals have even put together this video, explaining how they work.

In addition to all of these advantages to you, Campus Book Rentals are paying it forward to others. For every textbook rented they donate to Operation Smile. What is Operation Smile? Well – this is taken from their website:

“Operation Smile is an international medical charity whose global network of thousands of credentialed medical volunteers from more than 80 countries is dedicated to helping improve the health and lives of children from more than 60 countries. We’ve provided more than 220,000 free surgical procedures for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities. To build long-term sufficiency in resource poor environments, we train doctors and local medical professionals in our partner countries, so they’re empowered to treat their local communities. We also  donate medical equipment and supplies and provide year-round medical treatments through our worldwide centers.”

When you rent your textbooks from Campus Book Rentals, you are, quite literally, helping a child smile what could be better than that?
