Preparing for College

This post is sponsored by Campus Book Rentals.

I feel WAY too young to be thinking about having a child that will be preparing for college, but the reality is that Isaac will be doing just that after 2 short years!  In fact it is already on our minds as we had to make some pretty major changes to his schedule at High School so that he could be best prepared for the career path he wants to pursue.

So when I was contacted by Campus Book Rentals to check out their site I was intrigued. I remember that when I went to college 20 years ago (how has it been THAT long?!), books were some of the most expensive items to pay for. At least the cost I was most aware of! :)

It always seemed crazy to me that I would pay $100+ on a book that I would use for a short time and then sell it back for $7!

Campus Book Rentals has decided to tackle this problem with an interesting option for students!

They rent textbooks online! And here are some of the perks:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
- they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

When the time comes we will be checking this option out for Isaac as well.

And as an exciting new option you can also chose the "Rent Back" option. "RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options!" 

So if you are a college student, or the parent of an upcoming student - check out Campus Book Rentals to see if they carry the books you need!
