Summer is officially upon us guys! It's longer days, warmer weather, swimming pools and flip flops!
However, some of us are still in school with summer school and summer semesters in college. My dad is actually one of the later ones. He's in his 50's and back in school to get his masters in teaching! We're so proud of him! 30+ years in the field of construction management and he realized his old body is going to give out on him sometime. (His words not mine!) So he decided to go get his education furthered to prepare. To me that's a great example that it's never to late to learn as much as you can!
The one thing that is hard for my Dad is the ever rising cost of textbooks, and supporting a family at the same time. As his kid, I try to do whatever I can to lessen the burden on him and give back wherever I can. So when I ran across CampusBookRentals.com I decided to check it out for him. I was actually very pleased at what I found! Check out some of the perks.
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
They also have a new program called RentBack. RentBack is a 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! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) Isn't that awesome?!
One of the other cool things about this company is that they make a donation to Operation Smile with every textbook rented! Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the world.
So if you're in college, or know someone in college that needs some good deals on textbooks, check out campusbookrentals.com and see how they can help you with your textbook needs!
And if you're not in college, or don't have to worry about school until fall, then go get in the pool and drink a Diet Coke! (I mean seriously, why are you online anyway?)
