Do you have a student heading off to college for the first time or heading back for another year? I have both and my girls are going to be trying out CampusBookRentals.com. Even if you live under a rock or have never gone to college, you know text books take a bite out of your wallet.
Thankfully, CampusBookRentals.com has made getting textbook a less costly experience. They’ve made the process a very easy one as well.
Can we start off with my favorite part, which is free shipping…BOTH WAYS? Whenever I do any shopping online, my first thought is, “how much is the shipping going to cost me?” Say your student starts a class and realizes for some reason they need to drop it? Guess what? They have a 30-Day Risk-Free Return policy! That means you’re not out any money.
CampusBookRentals.com bases their rentals on a 130 day semester, 85 day quarter and a 55 day summer schedule. What’s nice, is they understand that students might like their books a week earlier than the start of school and on the other end, might need it to finish up projects or assignment. So, they also have a 15 day grace period.
On their homepage, you can search for your book by categories such as Psychology, Chemistry, and English. You can also search by ISBN, author, and title.
As you’re going through the process of renting books, on the right side of the page you’ll see the cost of the book and the date it needs to be returned. Remember, if there are supplements, like a CD/DVD, they may not come with the book so you’ll have to make sure this can be found elsewhere.
Before you get started, to get acquainted with how the company works, I’d go to the Help page and scroll through the Q&A. It’s fast and easy to get through. Also, if you have questions, they pride themselves on having great customer service and want to help out with any issues or any needs you would have.
