The only reason that I haven't been actively seeking out higher education (aside from my health issues of course) is college is just too darn expensive these days! The government and schools have made it too hard to afford even a 2 year education because tuition rates are so high and unless there's a serious trust fund in the background, most kids are forced to take out loans to even have a chance of going to college.
We'll just say I'm very passionate on the subject of over-inflated tuition and schooling costs when it comes to higher education.
This is why when I can save money-even a little bit-in reference to school, you bet that sweet bippy of yours I'm going to do it! One way to save a little extra is by ditching high costing textbooks and renting.
CampusBookRentals.com is your leading source for all your textbook needs! You can find what you're looking for for 40-90% off regular bookstore prices, so lets say, the 4 classes you'll be taking in the Spring, which equals 4 (or more) textbooks you'll need, 40-90% off can save you a lot of dough that can be better spent elsewhere.
They also offer free shipping both ways, flexible renting periods, great customer support, and to add to the awesomeness, they allow you to highlight in your rented textbooks as if they were your own!
As if saving money wasn't awesome enough, CampusBookRentals.com has come out with a new program called RentBack-RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they already own to other students, ultimately making them 2 to 4 times more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options!
With every textbook rented, CampusBookRentals.com also donates to Operation Smile, an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives. They're Making a Difference Program has helped Operation Smile and they've committed to donating a minimum of 80 additional surgeries between June 2013 and June 2014!
