It not only allows students to save money, it helps students make money by providing services for students to rent out their textbooks to other students. Campus Book Rentals has been around since 2007, and continues to help students live a more affordable life.
Campus Book Rentals recently reached out to me with an awesome opportunity … they offered e $25 to use for Back to School shopping for the charity and/or child of my choice. I gladly took on this mission because as you know, times are tight for many people and I just knew that I could turn this $25 into some awesome school supplies that would come in very handy for a child (or family!) in need at my children’s school.
I started my mission by watching the Staples 1cent deals each week. These penny deals usually require a $5 min. purchase, and then you are able to grab all of that weeks penny deals for… you guessed it, a penny! I actually spread my mission out over a 3 week period, which not only gave me the opportunity to get a LOT of penny items but I was also able to grab a few Staples Rewards items, which are actually FREE thanks to a 100% Easy Rebate offers, where 100% of your purchase on those items is refunded back to you in the form of Staples Rewards. The icing on the cake, was a backpack pack that I scored in the Macy’s 60% off backpack sale earlier this month! I will be sharing photos soon, and I can’t wait to show you all of the loot that I scored…all for just over $25 (yes… I went over budget, but ONLY because the 3 pack of Kleenex at Staples was SUCH a better deal than just buying one box.) Here’s a photo of our loot (minus the backpack and a 3 huge boxes of Kleenex that I already dropped off):
… a huge thank you to the folks at Campus Book Rentals for providing me with this opportunity!
