College Tuition Costs What?! Let CampusBookRentals Help Your Student

Last night as Lee and I sat watching an episode of Parenthood together, the topic of college tuition came up. $60,000 a year was the price for this Ivy League school in the show, I watched as Lee’s jaw just about dropped to the floor, apparently somebody hasn’t been up to par with just how expensive college is today and how much more it will cost by the time our children are there. That is why I love sharing sites like CampusBookRentals with you all, because no matter how much college tuition costs, it’s so worth getting your child the best education possible. The easiest way to save some cash on college costs would be to rent books, why pay full price costs for books you may only need one semester??

CampusBookRentals

There are so many reasons why you should rent your college books from CampusBookRentals such as saving 40-90% off book store prices, free shipping both ways, you are allowed to highlight in the rental books, and the fact that CampusBookRentals.com will donate to Operation Smile for every book rented. One thing that tears at my heart strings is a company that gives back and this is a company that donates to Operation Smile every time someone rents a book. There are flexible rental options too, making renting textbooks just as easy as purchasing them but without the fear that they will devalue once your course is over.

As a parent to three children I know that I will be seeking out programs like this one, where my children can rent their textbooks for college because I will need to save money every chance I get. It’s funny, I keep thinking once the children are 18 they will fend for their own self but reality is if they choose to attend a college, I will still be financially supporting them in some ways.

RentBack

Another fun fact about CampusBookrRentals is there new Rent Back option, this is where students may rent textbooks that they have to other students through the Rent Back program. This is a great way to allow students to make 2-4 times more money than they would trying to resell their textbooks from prior semesters and courses. I think this is a great way to allow students to make extra cash flow during the hardships of being a college student, maybe this could pay for their next meal, who knows!

As you can see CampusBookRentals is really a money saver in so many ways, so I think that you should look into this website if you are a parent who has a child in college or is getting to the point of planning for college. Really dive deep in CampusBookRentals.com to check them out as a whole and if you use their services please come back here to leave me a comment with some feedback on how it went for you. I would love to hear about your experiences with CampusBookRentals.com.

Stocking Stuffer Idea from GradSave @gradsave

Are you ready for a cute stocking stuffer idea?

Stuff a stocking and ensure a future? Sort of catchy, right? Well as a Mom of three it is. With three kids to think “college” for, I know I have to start getting smart about saving for college tuition because at least one of the three will end up in a college of some sort.  At least I hope.

My little ones will be big ones some day heading off asking me to pay that lovely bill so they can further their education and become whatever it is their heart desires. That is why I absolutely love and stand behind GradSave 100%. The cool thing is that you can now choose to get your GradSave College Savings Gift Card via digital gift code or gift card by mail. What a cute stocking stuffer idea, now maybe your little one won’t know what the card is for, but I know my little ones think having a “credit card” aka gift card, is just the same as what Mama uses in the stores.

To think of your kids opening up their stocking and having a “credit card” found within it, of course they will think they can go spend it, but you will have to explain to them that it’s savings for when they are older. Place it in a secret treasure place, such as a lock box within your home with your child. Make a cute game out of it, and know that you are doing a great thing by starting to invest in your child’s future. Heck, this could even be a yearly tradition or a tradition for each birthday as well as Christmas.

I also want to share with you another awesome thing that GradSave has going on, their $10,000 Scholarship Sweepstakes, simply fill out a form on the GradSave Scholarship Sweepstakes page and be entered for a chance to win $10,000 towards your child’s future! That sweepstakes ends on December 31, 2012. It is open to US minus Rhode Island.
