I wanted to take the opportunity to do a sponsored post for CampusBookRentals because I know some of my readers are college students, and also because once I read about the service they offer I thought it was a great way for anyone in college to save quite a bit of money when it comes to books. When I was in school I always hated heading to the book store that first week or so of classes because it never failed that I walked out with a $400, $500, $600 or more bill and I didn't even buy every single book for every class. The only thing worse than that, was trying to sell back all those books at the end of the semester and getting next to nothing for them if they were bought back at all.

That's where CampusBookRentals comes into play. If you're looking for a more affordable way to get the books you need you can use their site to get 40-90% off bookstore prices, they even offer free shipping not only when you place your order but also when you return the books. They offer flexible rental periods and you are even allowed to highlight in the textbooks. Yes, you read that correctly - you can highlight in rented textbooks. That sounds really minor and silly to some, but highlighting key notes and passages can make a world of difference when it comes to studying. For a little more info about how it all works, check out the video below:

If you have to buy your textbooks, or maybe you have some laying around that you couldn't sell back to your local bookstore you also have the option to rent those out yourself through RentBack. This new initiative allows you to take control of renting your own textbooks out to other students and putting money in your own pocket. You can make 2-4 times the amount of money you would if you simply sold your books back at the end of the semester. And if you already own the books, why not give it a shot?

One last thing I want to mention is that CampusBookRentals participates in Operation Smile. (I love when companies support charity organizations, especially for children.) Whenever a textbook is rented they donate a portion of that rental to the children's charity organization that treats facial deformities, like cleft lips and cleft palates, across the world.

For more info and to learn more about more perks head on over to CampusBookRentals! And know that I'm extremely jealous that this option was not popularized until after I was out of school, because I would have loved the opportunity to save money on books.
