#BacktoSchool with Campus Book Rentals Plus One Sweet #Giveaway CLOSED

Tuesday, August 23, 2011 Posted by Dina N

It's no secret that college education is expensive. Tuition, fees, living expenses, transportation, technology - everything costs money. And let's not forget the books. I still remember having to shell out hundreds of dollars each semester. Sure, I sold some of them when I was through with classes but that did not recoup much of the expense.

I wish CampusBookRentals.com existed back then. They've been in business since 2007 (yep, college for me was a bit earlier than that). Renting books is way cheaper than buying them - and also better for the environment. I looked up some textbooks I would have bought if I were a student, and I was amazed how much money I could have saved. And guess what - flexibility, large selection, free shipping both ways, and no lining up at the bookstore. I'd much rather shop online anyway, especially for books. Wouldn't you?

The Giveaway
I have a sweet giveaway for you - in more ways than one. CampusBookRentals.com are generously giving away an Edible Arrangements chocolate-covered fruit gift basket from to one lucky U.S. reader of this blog!

Or, if you'd rather buy your own chocolate but want to save even more on textbooks, you could win a 50% coupon code at CampusBookRentals.com instead. Use it for yourself or for a student in your life. Sweet, I know!

To enter, please comment below who would be saving on their textbooks - or enjoying the chocolate-covered fruit gift basket - if you won.

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winner, #239 Jenn Spencer!

    The hubby & I would be enjoying the fruit basket or...maybe the in-laws.... But also my niece is going back to school, so if the timing is right & she hasn't gotten her books, I might give this to her.

    Hello, my son is starting his junior year. He has already got his books, but he's smart and ordered them through half.com and only paid $60 for all of them. I had read an article that the textbook thing is that they change a few things and call it a new edition when the old ones offer much the same information. So he's going off with some older editions and I'm sure they will be fine. So to award him for being such a smart kid. I would send him a chocolate covered fruit basket. Thanks for a great giveaway!
