New Website for College Students to Exchange Textbooks and More on Campus
Why pay $100 for a textbook when you can get it for a much lower cost? Why should your campus bookstore rip you off? Ever walk around campus and see a lot of fliers for used textbooks trying not to be sold back at the campus bookstore?
A new website, Campusgrind.com (www.campusgrind.com) has come up with a solution. Here anyone can post a textbook ad for free, and if purchased, can meetup on campus for a quick cash exchange or arrange to have it shipped. This allows students to save money on textbooks and get a higher return for selling them back. For example, your campus bookstore might sell a book for $300 and at the end of the semester buy it back for $100, which is 1/3 of what you payed for the textbook. At CampusGrind.com you can post your textbook for $200, 2/3 of what you payed. This way both the buyer and seller have a much better deal!
In addition to textbooks, there is also a marketplace where you can post just about anything, from computers, dvds, music, autos, clothes, and much more. The campus meetup and shipping concept is the same as textbooks, and is free as well.
Campusgrind.com is a community of over 3,200 campuses nationwide. The website allows people to search for friends and classmates and add them to their list of friends. Members are allowed to upload up to twenty photos, create a profile, and browse students, faculty, and alumni around any college in the United States. Anyone is able to post topics in his or her college forum, general forum, or other college forums about almost anything, including travel, love & dating, college life, sports, and more.
The founders are currently working on improving the community.
