Getting the Most Out of Your Books

*This is a sponsored post for*

This post goes out to all my college friends and readers. With the end of the semester here, you're likely to have a stacks of books lying around that you might not know what to do with. I remember a time back when I was in college and had to purchase almost $700 worth of books (I was taking 18 hrs that semester).

And obviously most of those books I would never use again. I thought "I'll just sell them back at the end of the semester" nope didn't happen :( The bookstore wouldn't buy back almost 90% of them because no professors were using them the following year. 

Well that's where comes in. I would have totally looked into renting my textbooks if it had known about it at the time! is an amazing service that allows you to rent your textbooks online for the semester. 

Some of the awesome perks include: 

- You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices. Amazing!
- There is free shipping both ways. Even more amazing because shipping can be pricy.
- You can highlight in the textbooks.
- They offer flexible renting periods. Preset periods of 55, 85 or 130 days, plus you can selected your own rental period up to one year.
- They offer a 30 day risk free return policy. Great for if your professor changes what books you need at the last minute.
- They have the largest selection than any other book rental source.
- They are a trusted company that has been around since 2007.
- And last but not least, they have live customer support. For if you ever have an issue and need to talk to a human :)

CampusBookRentals has also launched a new site called RentBack is new initiative that allows you to rent the textbooks you own - to other students. This is really great because it makes you 2-4x more money compared to what you'd make through other buyback options! Pretty sweet huh :)

 You can check out this video to better see how works, and feel free to head over to their website and take a look around.


Did I not answer a question you might have? Head over to their FAQ page and I'm pretty darn positive you'll find the answer there :) If/when I ever go back to school ( I'm thinking about getting my Masters), I will definitely be using

I hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. I agree, renting my textbooks was the best decision I made! I was surprised you could even write in the books! I just wish it wasn't such a secret that renting is even an option!

    Thanks for stopping by the linkup!

  2. I rent my textbooks every time! SO worth it :)
