FAQ'S

1. How do I track my books?
Log in to your account by clicking here. Once inside, you'll see your current textbook rentals listed along with a yellow box that says "track". Click there to view the tracking number and track your book(s). Note: not all books will have a tracking number, but most do and tracking numbers are loaded into your account as they become available.
2. How do I return my books?
Each time you rent textbooks from CampusBookRentals.com, you'll receive a bubble envelope with a prepaid USPS label attached to the outside. When you're done with your books, simply place them inside the return envelope and drop the package off at the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. Shipping is all prepaid. PLEASE only use this method to return your books, because it will insure they arrive at the correct facility.
3. Can I write or highlight in my books?
You certainly can. Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so try to be respectful.
4. Are your books the same as my bookstore?
You can be confident when you rent textbooks from us, your books will be correct according to your order. We do not carry or ship international editions or reprints. We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore. On occassion, if the only book we have available is a US teacher's edition, and if it is determined to be the same as the student edition page for page and word for word, we may elect to send it, though this is very rare.
5. How long does it take to get my books?
It depends on the shipping method you choose. We offer free shipping anywhere in the contiguous US which can take 7-14 business days. If you choose expedited shipping you can expect your order in about a week (5-8 business days). Remember, we offer a 21 day no-hassle money-back guarantee if you drop your class, order the wrong book, or just plain change your mind. You won't even pay for shipping.
6. Are there any fees to sign up?
There are no fees for signup. When you rent textbooks from us, there are no membership fees, hidden fees, or anything unusual whatsoever. We display the price you pay to rent the book, and that's it. What you see is what you get.
7. Can anyone rent books, or just students?
Yes, anyone can rent. You do not have to be attending school to rent textbooks from us.
8. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Yes, you can. You're only charged the difference between what you already paid to rent the book, and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. This is what makes renting textbooks so cool; it saves you money, while still allowing you to purchase the book if you'd like to. If you decide to keep a book, simply log in to your customer account, choose to purchase your book, and it will walk you through the checkout process.
9. Are there late fees?
We will do our best to make returning your book(s) simple and easy. As stated above, we even provide the return package with a prepaid label already attached. If however, books are not returned at the end of the rental period (and after the grace period), as specified in the rental agreement, the renter will be notified via email that their card will be charged for a 15 day extension of their book(s). If the book is not returned by the end of the 15 days the next charge will be for the purchase price of the book, which is: Market Value of Book at time of Rental - (Rental Fee + Extension) = Purchase Price of Book. We do work very hard to resolve every return discrepancy amicably. We want our customers to be happy and continue to rent textbooks throughout their college careers.

Renting Textbooks

Over one million students across nearly 6,000 campuses rent their textbooks from CampusBookRentals. That’s quite an endorsement from a highly-educated demographic! It’s well known that textbooks lose their value by the end of a class course, making it difficult, if not impossible, to recoup your purchasing costs with buyback. Renting guarantees you get your money’s worth, upfront, from college tomes you will never use again. Plus, renting is so easy. No more trips to the bookstore. CBR offers every title—in new or gently-used condition—online. With one quick search, you’ll be ready for classes. So, join your peers and make your college life a little bit easier (and wealthier).

Making A Difference

Our Making a Difference program is an important part of what we do.

We’re keeping our partnership with Operation Smile and have committed to donate a minimum of 80 additional surgeries this year.

Operation Smile is an incredible organization that forever changes children’s lives through reconstructive cleft lip surgeries. The long-term improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible.

We’re honored to support the children of Operation Smile.
