 College isn’t cheap.
That’s the understatement of the year.

Anyone who has been to college, taken out student loans, and is now in the repayment period of those loans knows what I am talking about.  Anyone who worked their way through college knows what I’m talking about.  And all the parents out there with college aged kids know what I am talking about when you see the price next to those three dreaded words: 
 As if that’s not enough, then you need to figure out how to pay for all the books.  I remember during my college days, my bill at the College Bookstore every semester was unreal.  And then to add insult to injury, they would buy my books back from me at the end of the semester for about 5 bucks. Great, now I had just enough money to buy myself a Value Meal at Wendy’s down the street. 
But now there is a new way to pay for college textbooks. No more standing in line at the bookstore.  No more searching the stacks only to find out that all the “used” books are gone and only the new copies are left.
Campus Book Rentals - your textbook alternative

At CampusBookRentals, you can rent your textbooks for 40-90% off bookstore prices.  You order online, CampusBookRentals ships the books to you, and you return them at the end of the semester in a pre-paid package. Easy Peasy! You can even highlight in your books.
And here is the part that just tugs at my heartstrings. CampusBook Rentals has partnered with Operation Smile , an organization that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it.
For every textbook that is rented, Campus Book Rentals makes a donation to Operation Smile. 
Do you already own some textbooks and don’t know what to do with them?
Try out their new program, RentBack. 
Rentback allows you to rent out books that you already own to other college students.  You send in the book with a prepaid shipping label, and CampusBookRentals will rent your book out to other students.  Every time your book is rented, you get paid.

By using Rentback, you can make 2-4x more money than you would through selling books back at the end of the semester.

Enough to buy you way more than a Wendy’s Value Meal.
