College Textbooks for Rent?

Friday, January 6, 2012

In an ideal world, College would be free and considered a basic right...

In reality, College basically costs an arm and a leg + the equivalent of your home motgage. Wouldn't you like to cut back costs even just a little? We can't do anything about the tuition but there's help when it comes to the textbooks.

Campus Book Rentals allows you to rent your college textbooks instead of buying them.

Why Rent?

I can think of a myriad of reasons, but off the bat, here are a few:

  1. Use the extra money for clothes instead :P
  2. Since they allow you to highlight material in rented books, it'll feel like your own anyway
  3. two words: FREE SHIPPING.
  4. it's a greener alternative, textbook heaven is currently rejecting old, forgotten thrown-away textbooks due to the volume
  5. And the best reason of all:


Campus Book Rentals donates a portion of the proceeds for every book rented to Operation Smile!

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

They provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.

Is the website Philippine-based? It's true that textbooks are often for rent instead of for sale especially in science courses.
