Campus Book Rentals Review

Hey guys, I just had to tell you about this awesome book rental place that I found!  They rent college books for SO cheap.  This place is called Campus Book Rentals.

To show you how incredibly cheap they are, I looked up a text book that I needed to get when I went to college before Daniel was born.  They currently don't have any new text books available at my old bookstore, but they do have a used copy.......for $125.50.  Oh my, this is why I do not miss school!  LOL.  Anyways, just to rent the icky digital copy through the bookstore is $82.99.  Well, to rent it for the whole semester at Campus Book Rentals (the hardcover of the book) is $69.07!  This also covers shipping to me AND shipping back to them!!!!  Wow, what a deal!!!  AND you are aloud to highlight in the book also! I have never heard of a rental program with textbooks that allows you to do this before.  I wish I had found this place when I was in college.

Campus Book Rentals has a HUGE stock of books available.  They also ship within 7-14 business days!  BUT if you need faster shipping, that is available also!!!  They also have three different options for renting your books.  You can rent them for the summer (55 days), a quarter (85 days), or a semester (130 days).  So, this is also a great place to go even if you just want to rent a text book for self educating also!  Just rent it for the time it would take you to read through it on your own and then you can return it! I know there have been a few times that I have bought textbooks just for self knowledge and I didn't feel like paying for the whole course.  So, this way you can self educate just like you were in college anyways!  Want to brush up your skills?  They have that covered too!

ALSO, from my searching through their webpage, I have found plenty of books that would also help with the homeschooling mom!  So, if you are a homeschooling mom, you might want to check out this rental company too!!!

But, it does still get better.  Campus Book Rentals has also donates to Operation Smile with ever textbook that is purchased!  How awesome is that!?!?!  In case you don't know about Operation Smile, here is their about us page on their website:


Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives.

As a children’s charity, we measure ourselves by the joy we see on all of the faces we help. At Operation Smile, we're more than a charity. More than an NGO. We're a mobilized force of medical professionals and caring hearts who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.
Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft — often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a normal life.
That's where we come in as an international charity providing much needed surgical services. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided more than 2 million patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.
As one of the most prominent children’s charities in the world and with a presence in over 60 countries, we are able to heal children’s smiles and bring hope for a better future.
Thanks to the generosity and spirit of volunteerism shown by our supporters, we heal thousands of children per year. With your help, how many lives can we change tomorrow?
And as for FAQs...they got that covered...with this amazing (do I dare say hilarious also!?!?) video!

Be sure to go check it out for yourself!  You might be amazed with what you can find at EXTREMELY low rates!!!


  1. What I want to know is where were they 12-16 years ago when I was in college?!?! I sure could have used them being a single mom working full time and going to school full time! Would have saved me a bundle! LOL (Did I just date myself?!? LOL)

  2. Ahahaha Amanda!!! I know, I really wish I knew about this before!!!
