ldquo;Be forewarned that this may be long but there are many things about this site that I am grateful for. It is 12:54AM and I have been so stressed trying to look for books that I need. Aside from the fact that most were sold out and the used books available were twice what I paid through CampusBookRentals, I only needed them for about a month. I found a site called DealOz and they led me to find your site. I had no idea this existed but it is PERFECT for me. I felt like it was a midnight miracle: I found my books, I could select my own return dates and my shipping method, and buy affordable insurance--all of which still cost less than any other method I found. I really appreciate the ease of using this website, the prepaid return box, and the re-rent/buy book box right by my order in case I need it. I love the layout of the website as well--very simple and elegant, and really easy to use. It actually calmed me down a bit. Some sites have so much stuff everywhere!  In a small way, it contributes to my anxiety if I'm rushing to buy something. I also appreciate that Terms and Conditions are comprehensible and quick to read. I hope this is always here for me to use as I'll be in school for at least 10 more years. Thank you.” – Erica W. – Ashford University

"To the people of My husband and I have recently returned to school after several years and were astonished at the prices of textbooks. Buying the books came close to paying for a second tuition. After learning about textbook rental, we tried two different companies: and............ We have noticed differences in the rental prices depending on the book, but we continue to rent from you guys because of how quickly we receive the books, how easily it is to return the books, and of course, the 15 day grace period. Thank you for that! Thank you for all of your customer support and reminder emails. Your company has saved us tons of money, probably thousands by the time we finish school. Thanks again." Casi S. - University of Houston - Clear Lake

"The customer service was phenomenal. This is a great service. It was easy and seamless. I recommend it to all!" - Allyson P. - Weber State University

"You have thrilled me with your company more that I can say. I used your books this last semester and sent them back to you earlier this week. You have made it all so easy! I met people in my class today and referred them to your website. I still have one more book to order. My term in school is only 7 ½ weeks long during the summer so I'm happy that you offer the shorter rental period for those short school semesters. Thank you again!" - Caity A. - Utah Valley Unviersity

"Campus book rentals has made getting my text books for my classes so much easier. And I was able to save about three hundred dollars right off the bat. I didn't have to wait in line at the bookstore. I had a teacher who changed the text book he was using, and Campus Book Rentals was able to get me the book I needed in a timely manner, even after they had already delivered me the first book. Overall I enjoyed using them and will continue to use them." - Darrik R.- Weber State University

"I saved almost half this semester by renting my textbooks! Returning the books was easy. I plan on using them again next semester!" - Andrew Y.- Weber State University

"Renting my books from Campus Book Rentals allowed me to save money and let someone else take the risk of not getting my money back at the end of the semester.

"Campus Book Rentals is great! I got all my books within a week of ordering them, all in good condition, and it cost me a fraction of what buying a book would cost!

"I was VERY impressed with the customer service. When I had a question, the reply was quick, detailed, informative, and quite helpful! The books are so much cheaper and I'm definitely planning on buying my books from Campus Book Rentals next year!" - Amanda C.- Utah State University

"I went online and rented a book for my accounting class, but it didn't come right away, so I contacted customer service through email, and within a few hours they had emailed me back and called me, and by that next morning they had provided me with the book I needed. They went out of their way to make sure I had my book when I needed it, and they were happy to do it." - Brent J.- Weber State University

"I got the book I needed at a great price and I don't have to worry about selling it back at a reduced price. You have a great company and I will use you again in the future." - Darin B.- Webster University

"I love your website! My books were more than half off the price that the bookstore wanted. I received my books in less than a week. They were the same exact books as the bookstore, just half the price. I would and do recommend this site to any college student looking to save money." - Mallory H.- Utah State University

"I am grateful that I came across this website it saved me a lot of money on books especially for some of my medical classes that required larger books for a substantial amount of money. With Campus Book Rentals I was able to find those exact same books for a lot less which helped me to save a lot of money that i was able to pay for classes with. School is already expensive enough and any student is trying to find a way to budget their money wisely and this was a great help in doing that. Also I worried that I would have my books delivered quickly but they were promptly delivered the week after I sent in my order and I had no problems. It is a great way to get books. I would recommend it to anyone and already have told many of my friends to use them." - Jessica C.- Weber State University

"This has been a wonderful service! I saved money on both the books and the aspirin I would have needed waiting in line at the book store on campus!" - Austin E.- Weber State University

"I'm very grateful for the services provided by I ordered two books and one of them I was unable to pick up from the post office in time and it was sent back. I got an e-mail immediately explaining what had happened and asking me what I wanted to do again. I was so impressed by the help I received." - Brittany F.- Utah State University


1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
