Rent a Book Instead of Buying | Campus Book Rentals

I grew up being poor.

Things we NEED were hard to get.
I have 5 siblings from the same parent, yeah that's me in orange shirt.  

My parents are very hardworking and they taught us to be like that too.  So my siblings and I helped our parents a lot to get through it.

gosh! just writing this post gave me teary eyes..

We sell all different kinds of stuff that my parents make at home.

from peanut butter to salted peanuts

to kutsinta to yema (both Filipino dessert)

it was tough

life was tough

but education in our family is IMPORTANT

even it was tough

my siblings and I all finished our college degrees

not easy

But I remembered back in my college days that I've never purchased my books.  

Why? it was expensive and we cannot afford.

All were either borrowed from a friend who was finished with that subject 

or spend hours and hours reading in the library and taking down notes

It may not be legal but we used to also make copies of books by bringing it to a copying center and they will book bind it for us too. 

Renting a book would have been helpful if it was available back then in the Philippines.

But it was NOT

Lucky you, it is now available!

Calling all the college-goers and moms of college-goers out there!  

Let me introduce you to CampusBookRentals.com, a company that actually rents textbooks.
Let me point out the perks of renting textbooks from them:
♥ save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
♥ free shipping both ways
♥ can highlight in the textbooks
♥ flexible renting periods
♥ rent your textbooks without risk of your books becoming devalued at the end of the semester

You asked? How does it work?


And the best thing that I like about CampusBookRentals is that they donate to Operation Smile is a charity organization for children – donate non profit with each textbook rented.  Operation Smile is an awesome organization that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it.

They also have a new program called RentBack, they will rent your books to another student and you get paid everytime it is being rented.  
Like it yet?☺

Imagine the money you can make from the textbooks you own, 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options!

Isn't that awesome?!  Go check them out.  Thank you!
