This post is for all of my readers who are (lucky enough) to still be living the college life! (I'm jealous of you!) I remember from my college years that purchasing books each semester would always make a massive dent in my already pathetic bank account. So today I am here to tell you about to solve your textbook woes!

Here's why they rock:
  • You save 40 - 90% off of bookstore prices (that's huge!)
  • Free shipping both ways - (I refuse to ever pay for shipping.. so this is a big plus!)
  • You can highlight in the textbooks - (In case you're a highlighter fiend like myself)
  • Flexible renting periods - (score!)

Here's how it works...

And you want to know the best part about With each textbook rented, they make a donation to Operation Smile!  Here's a bit about what Operation Smile is all about:

Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives.

As an international charity for children, we measure ourselves by the joy we see on all of the faces we help. At Operation Smile, we're more than a charity. More than an NGO. We're a mobilized force of medical professionals and caring hearts who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery and related medical care for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.

Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a productive life.

That's where we come in as the largest volunteer-based medical charity providing free cleft surgeries. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities. Our work creates a lasting global impact. We train local doctors in developing countries and strengthen healthcare systems so more children in some of the poorest areas in the world can be treated.

As one of the most prominent charities for children in the world, we work in over 60 countries to heal children’s smiles and bring hope for a better future. Together, we are saving children’s lives.

Nothing is better than working with a company who uses their profits for the good of others. It's a WIN-WIN-WIN situation!

Also, check out CampusBooksRentals' newest program, RentBack! RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own to other students. This is great because it makes you 2-4 times more money compared to what you'd make through buyback options! Where was this when I was in college??

So, there's the skinny. Check out to save YOU money and help save a child's life in the process. Pretty awesome.
