Campus Book Rentals Review

Yes, the new school year is quickly approaching. With it, comes the chance for college students and others to experience some fabulous savings on text books, with Campus Book Rentals! This is a really unique program, perfectly suited to college students at any level. Yet, it's not just for students, anyone can use it!

So, instead of wasting loads of money buying books that you will only need for a brief period of time, now you can rent them for a fraction of the cost. Not only this, but you can enjoy the many benefits that come along with book rental.

Some of these benefits include:

Free shipping, both ways.

Your books are shipped to you by standard shipping, at no extra cost. They also come with a pre-paid shipping envelope to return them in, again at no extra cost. Paid shipping options are also available, if you are in a rush to get your books. So, never fear, your books will always arrive on time. Yet, you will never need to pay to return them. They have you covered.

Flexible rental periods.

Choose to rent by the quarter, by the semester, or even summer rental. If these options don't work for your needs, then you can choose a date that works for you. Whatever you choose, you will still find flexibility, even within your choice.

Class running a bit longer than expected? Take advantage of the 15 day grace period! Need to re-take a class, and hence to re-rent some books? No problem, you can do this at 30 percent off the original rental price! There is basically an option for nearly any issue that might come up, so you can focus on your learning experience, and let the book rentals be stress-free.

Save 40 to 90 percent off bookstore prices.

Not only will you be experiencing such great savings, you can also be assured that you are getting the same text books as you would get at your bookstore. Just type in the ISBN of the book you need, and wala! Savings at your fingertips!

Though these benefits are definitely enough to make Campus Book Rentals worth your while, there are still so many more. These include the fact that you can highlight and make notes in the books you rent, you can return any book within 21 days for a no-questions-asked refund, and the list goes on. Far too many to list here, so you may wish to explore some more on the website.

You can watch this brief video for an overview of how it all works.

Now that you have an idea of the benefits for students and other book renters, there is one more benefit that tops the cake. Each book rental generates a donation to Operation Smile. This is an international medical charity, focusing on providing free surgical procedures for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.

These surgeries are life-changing for recipients and their families, and can even be a life-saving event. Those who would not otherwise have access to this type of medical care, now have an opportunity to live and enjoy a life they could only dream of before.

Two Ways to Win $25,000, and Two Ways to Win a New House!

Today we travel to Thrillsville, with prizes to make you swoon! How thrilling would it be to win $25,000? More thrilling than riding a zip line over the Colorado River, I'm sure. Lucky you, there's two chances for you to win it, today! If you'd win, then maybe you could go ahead and ride that zip line...

On the other hand, there's also two chances to win a new home today! Amazing! This is a particularly big thrill for me, and one that I've been following for a number of years. This year's Blog Cabin is in a lovely location in Idaho. I have regularly noticed that Idaho is just never in the news, so gather that it must be a nice place to live. Of course, the location is just too beautiful to pass by.

Then, there's the Urban Oasis in Asheville, North Carolina. I fell in love with Asheville the first time I went there, years ago, so was quite pleased to see that this year's home was located in this city. If you've never been there, you can find more information on the sweeps pages. It, too, is quite beautiful, and the climate is nice. According to, it is the 12th best city to live in America, so that says enough!

Onward, to Thrillsville!
