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).

Well, we recently won some accolades, and that's kind of cool (named "One of America's Most Promising Companies" by Forbes Magazine, we ranked #17 on the Inc 500 List in 2012, and our CEO just won the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year). But perhaps the best thing about CampusBookRentals is that our Founder and CEO, Alan Martin, was a student when he founded the company. 

So CampusBookRentals was born out of the acute pain Alan was experiencing as a student, and knows all too well what it feels like to pay for over-priced textbooks. That experience is what led him to the idea of renting textbooks, and since then we've rented over 1 million textbooks, and served students on just about every campus in the nation.

As a company, we're hyper-focused on continually delivering value to students. For example, take the launch of our recent RentBack program. Another major pain point for students is Textbook Buybacks. Everyone has had the unfortunate experiencing of buying a book for $200, and finding out it can only be sold for $30 (just 3 months later!). RentBack allows to students to retain ownership of their books, send them to us, and we rent them out to other students and send them the money. And we repeat the process every semester until the book is no longer in demand. Why is that cool? Because on average, students make 2-4x as much money on their books when compared to selling them back.
