I remember back in college (I won’t mention any dates), how expensive books were – awful! That was even when I opted to purchase the less expensive used books. Of course, nowadays, you can actually rent text books at a fraction of the cost. I love that idea!
One site that has such an offer is BookRenter.com. They have actually reached a huge milestone — students have saved more than $101 million dollars on their text books. Not only that, they have donated more than 75,000 books to children through the First Book Foundation.
To celebrate our milestone and continue encouraging college success, they are giving away $100,000 in textbooks. Just head over to Bookrenter on Facebook and you can claim your savings. In this contest EVERYONE wins!! You can get credits good for $10, $20, $50, $100, $200 or even $500 savings. This offer is good through October 1st (or until the money runs out).
Oh — and in true Penny Pinchin’ Fashion, make sure you go through ShopAtHome.com so you can earn 7% cash back on your textbook rentals.
