Make a little money while going to school!!!

A while back I was contacted by Angela with Campus Book Rentals to do an informative post on their services and that of Operation Smile. My original post focused more on Operation Smile, however this time I thought I would discuss the text rental. I was compensated for this post. All information was received via the sites linked below. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you have been following my blog you know I have started working on my second master's. As a lifetime college student I have found this information about renting text books very helpful. So let me bullet point it for you:

-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-Each text book rental yields a donation to Operation Smile

Along with the aforementioned they have a new program called Rentback (where was this when I was buying books every semester, now I have online books). Rent Back is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is awesome because it will make you 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through single buyback options! For example that math book that is wasting space in your room you can rent it out to a student each semester instead of just getting the one time payment from selling the book back at the end of the year. One thing to consider is that professors do change the books sometimes so be sure to check into that and weigh all your options.
