As a uni student, I REALLY wish that this exists in New Zealand since I believe that it's an effective way of saving money. Campus Book Rentals is a US company that provides students the opportunity to rent the required text books for a much lower price compared to the retail price that they have to pay when they buy it.
Here's a video to show you how it works, it's really hassle-free and student friendly!
Other reasons why Campus Book Rentals is the best choice for college students like you (or someone you know!)
- save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
- free shipping both ways
- can highlight in the textbooks
- flexible renting periods
- they donate to Operation Smile (which I will be talking about later)
Now, I know that a lot of my readers are already working and graduated from college ages ago (well okay fine, a few years ago!) so here's some good news for you: If you still have your textbooks, or know someone who does, Rent Back is your new bff.
So if your college textbooks are still gathering dust in your attic, I think it's about time to get them out so other students can use them and earn your money back!
Last but certainly not the least, every text book that you rent benefits the unfortunate children who are unable to have cleft lip operations. Campus Book Rentals/ Rent Back has a partnership with Operation Smile and it's really awesome how their business really focuses on helping other people. Not only do they help students like us, but also children who need it! So think about it this way: You're able to save money and make a difference on a child's life!
