Recently I had the opportunity to review CampusBookRentals.com and to share the good news about how college students can get great savings on their textbooks and also help support OperationSmile.org.
Here are few of the perks for college-goers on renting textbooks:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
-you can find more perks on their website CampusBookRentals.com
Their Making a Difference program is an important part of what they do. They're keeping their partnership with Operation Smile and have committed to donate a minimum of 80 additional surgeries between June 2013 and June 2014.
What is Operation Smile? 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. What a great honor Campus Book Rentals has in supporting the children of Operation Smile. Find our more information about Operation Smile at: http://www.operationsmile.org/about_us/who-we-are/
What if college students have textbooks they own? RentBack (www.RentBack.com) is a new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students. This is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) I love the feature on the website where you can check how valuable your textbook is. I wish I had this option back when I was going to college! I remember the days when I spent so much money on my books and kept them in perfect condition so that my school would give me a few dollars at the end of the semester. What a perfect way for college students to help support themselves during the school year by making a little extra money!
I'm glad to know about this company and hope that once my kids begins college in the coming years they will be smart and resource them! For those that have kids starting college soon or have kids in college make sure and do your own review and check out their site for more information!
