Save Money with Campus Book Rentals

Remember when you were in college and you spent what you felt was your life savings on textbooks? I know the pain all too well of spending hundreds of dollars on a single textbook and only get a 1/4 of my money back when selling it to either the college bookstore or a fellow student. Thanks to Campus Book Rentals, college students can now save money on their textbooks. Here is how Campus Book Rentals and their RentBack program works. 

When visiting Campus Book Rentals, simply click on the rent option in the right hand corner. Enter the ISBN number, author or keyword. Don't worry about whether or not you are saving money. With this program, you automatically save 40% to 90% off of bookstore prices. Once you've chosen the correct book, you pay online through a secure checkout with a credit card. Your books will arrive within 2 weeks of your order date. Once you are finished with your books, you ship them back to Campus Book Rentals in the shipping package they provide. And there you have it! Not only are you saving money but you don't have to deal with your school's bookstore either! In just 6 years Campus Book Rentals has saved students over $113,000,000! Impressive right? Some additional perks of the program are:

-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-return your book within 21 days and you'll get a full refund
-we donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

Have you heard of Operation Smile? Operation Smile is an incredible organization that forever changes children’s lives through reconstructive cleft lip surgeries. The long-term improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. With every textbook rented from Campus Book Rentals, a donation is made to Operation Smiles. Not only are you saving money but you are also helping a child receive the medical treatment and care they need.

Looking for a textbook but don't want to pay ridiculous prices? Visit Campus Book Rentals and start saving today!


  1. Our store started offering a rental service during my sophomore year - not every book was offered to be rented and the rentals went fast but I always was there the first day to make sure I could rent my books. But I will be honest I sometimes hated I could rent my books because when I would buy them and turn them in at the end of the semester I would totally pocket some of the money and give less than what i got back to my dad...totally sneaky but he totally figured out my little scheme I had going on.

    1. I always liked the extra "income" from sell back weeks, too!


  2. They started this program in my college about halfway through and it was the best! I couldn't believe I missed out on it my first few years. Besides, who wants those old heavy books lying around the house after graduation anyway?

  3. I wish I would have taken advantage of rented textbooks in college. This is a fabulous idea!

  4. college books were ridiculous. I always got used and sold those things right back. I actually heard about the renting right after I graduated, totally useless. I told my cousin she should rent those suckers though when she went to college!

  5. I wish I had known about this in college. I spent a fortune on textbooks!

  7. I'm having issues. Sorry if this is a repeat comment.
    I love writing posts for them! Also, I am so old this wasn't even an option when I was in college. The bookstore was pretty much the only and expensive option.

  8. As someone who is back in school I always rent my books!!
