Business Making a Difference: Campus Book Rentals

I have been in contact with some great companies lately. This one touches my heart! Not only is Campus Book Rentals  a life saver for college students, but they also are life savers for some kids.

I was thinking back to my freshman year in college- even then, it hurt handing over $500 for just a few months worth of books. It cut deep. I bought used ones when I could and sold them back when I could. That didn't really help much.

I wish Campus Book Rentals had existed then- they would have saved me from stressing about buying books.

The money saved when renting textbooks is amazing. Because I started out in with a major in Elementary Ed, I'll compare a Education 101 book. These are the books currently required by Winthrop University's School of Education.

Field Experience : A Guide to Reflective Teaching, Posner, George J. and Vivian, Craig, 0137016875
Buy: $126.75
Rent from Campus Book Rentals: $20.28

Observation Skills for Effective Teaching, Borich, Gary D., 0137039727
Buy: $69.50
Rent from Campus Book Rentals: $49.20
That is a pretty big difference. This is just for one class. Remember, most students have six to eight classes. The money saved will not only make a huge difference when saving for textbooks, but you just have to send them back, there is no need to worry about making sure you get to the bookstore to sell them and hope that they are buying that book back.

  • 1 in 10 children born with a cleft will die before their first birthday.

I urge you to buy your text books from Campus Book Rentals, you can help save a life!
