Saving money on textbooks

If you've been following for awhile, you know that I work for a community college in the area where I grew up. I work in development/fundraising and really love my work.

However, for about three weeks every semester, things get crazy. This is known as the last minute registration/book checkout/financial aid rush. So my work goes on the backburner, and I more or less run the bookstore in our Center.

And man, it reminds you how EXPENSIVE books are. I recall spending more than $500 per semester on textbooks while in College - and only getting a small fraction (if anything!) back when selling them at the end of the semester.

That's why I'm glad to team up with and spread the word about the perks of renting textbooks.

Using, students can save between 40 and 90 percent off bookstore prices and get FREE shipping both ways. You are allowed to highlight in the textbooks and is flexible with the renting periods.

One of the huge plusses about the website is that it has a partnership with Operation Smile (more information HERE) and donates to the organization with EVERY texbook rented.

For students who have extra books lying around, has just rolled out a new RentBack initiative. Through this program, students can retn the texbooks they own to other students. Typically, the textbooks owner makes two to four times more money than they would if they can sell it back at the end of the semester. AMAZING!

If you are taking classes, or know anyone who does, I highly recommend checking out I sure wish they had this when I was in College - and know many students now who would love to take advantage of it.
