College or Grad School Anyone? Need to save money on TEXTBOOKS?

Anyone in Grad School or even College for that matter?


I completed grad school a while back, but thought about my fellow coworkers who have to go back to get their Masters...if they don't, their pay will freeze. Yes, FREEZE!  This means, no increase in salary until they get their Masters. Which then led me to think about my younger cousin who is going to college as well.  You will see why below!

I have one coworker who is going through this process right now.  She has 3 children under the age of  eight and her hubby travels for his job quite a bit.  She is now going back to get her Masters because she does not want her salary to freeze. I don't blame her, but could you imagine trying to balance work, family, and grad school?  I know, I know...some of you are going through this right now!  Others are trying to complete college, to get their teaching degree, and trying to find a job.  This all can add up...as well as text book costs.  I know from experience...I have one book that cost over $100 or more for one class...we didn't even use the textbook that much...AGH!  

For those of you going through this process I thought this site might help you out a little, www.campusbookrentals.com...especially when it can come to MONEY! Yes, it all adds up I know!  This site offers affordable textbooks, that you rent.  They even offer FREE SHIPPING BOTH WAYS!  You really should check it out.  They also offer 30 day risk free returns and LIVE customer support.  It doesn't get any better...I find this type of textbook shopping less stressful and more enjoyable...easy too!  They also have a quick search engine that helps you find the books that you need.

Ok so if that isn't awesome enough check out their new program called Rent Back, www.rentbackcom.  It is a new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own to other students.  This is soooo what I needed!!!  It is a great option because it makes the students more money!

One more thing: This company has also partnered with Operation Smile and donated over 1,000 life saving cleft lip surgeries this year to children in need.

I partnered with this site because not only do I love the idea that they have partnered with Operation Smile, but I love the idea of renting textbooks... I still have most of my texts from grad school and have never sold them or even picked them up since I last used them in school.  I WISH I would have known about this site before I bought my books!

So what do you do now?  Go to www.campusbookrentals.com and rent your college or grad school books! It's so easy!  I would love to hear in my comment section about your experience with grade school or college!

Happy shopping everyone!
