The College Bookstore Is Not Your Only Option

As parents, we have the natural tendency to encourage our kids to take us with them to the bookstore. I suggest you think again. The price tags at the bookstore are big. Your child’s college may not give you this information but we are.

Let your kids do their homework. Find out what the buy back policy is at the college bookstore. There are other alternatives these days. They can find out which textbooks are needed and order them on-line. The savings are astronomical. Today, on-line savings cannot be ignored. Kids can order used books or rent books and then return them free of charge. Don’t pass up this opportunity.

One great source we found for textbooks is a great alternative to the expense of buying all new books.

CampusBookRentals.com rents textbooks to college students across the nation saving them hundreds of dollars every semester. With customers on more than 5,570 college campuses in all 50 states, you can be sure that CampusBookRentals.com gives its customers just what they’re looking for. Their site is very clean, navigable, and user friendly. Their customer service is second to none. Click on the link to the right to get to their website.


Don’t forget to purchase pen, pencils, notebooks and other supplies at home where you can shop around. Buying notebooks with the college names costs a lot more than the ones close to home. Save your money on more important things…..like tuition
