Do you have a child in college? If you don't already have a child in college, eventually you will and it's never too early to start planning! I remember when I attended college, the cost of books was outrageous, so I can only imagine that that has not changed. Have you ever thought of renting the needed college books? Not only can you save 40-90% off of bookstore prices, you get free shipping (both ways), are allowed to highlight in the books AND for each textbook rented, Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile! Can't get any better than that! Most college books you aren't going to keep forever anyway, so why save costs, rent them and help a great cause!
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.
I also wanted to tell you about RentBack! A new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students.....which is Awesome!! It helps to make them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) Isn't that awesome!?!
