Back To School with CampusBookRentals!8/28/2014
Recently, I've spent a lot of time thinking about the future and what that means for our girls, from my post about Preparing For When You Are Gone to My Goals for Motherhood, is it so far out of reach that I'm already thinking about college for the girls and all the costs that go with that?
It would be great and I mean GREAT if they got some scholarships but the reality these days is that it's hard to put a child through college. Room and board, tuition and then throw text books on top of that! Nobody has time for that! So when I stumbled upon Campus Book Rentals, I heard some angelic bells going off in my head. Now, I know some people might think it's not right renting text books or the quality will be less but I think there are some heavy perks to this program:
- Save 40-90% off book store prices (I mean that's a MAJOR perk for me!)
- Free shipping both ways (college text books are heavy...that's a lot of moolah to USPS)
- You can highlight in the text books (maybe there are some good notes in there too!)
- Flexible renting periods
- Campus Book Rentals even gives a portion of each text book rented back to Operation Smile!!
In my opinion, Campus Book Rentals has put together a really amazing set of programs, I don't see any downsides to using this and if they are still around in about 15 years when we start looking at college applications with Hannah I will DEFINITELY be using them! You have nothing to lose, give it a shot and they even offer a 30 day guarantee...so let's star cracking open those books kids!
