Need to save AND earn while in college? Check this out!

Are you tired of paying high dollar for schools books that are only being used for one semester? If the answer is yes, I have a solution for you! is a book renting service for college students! You read that right. A book RENTING company. The service started in 2007 and has since worked with thousands of students on over 5,000 different campuses! Campus Book Rentals offers virtually every any text book for rent AND they pay students for referring their own friends! 

Here's how it works. You go to their site, and in the search box search the book you need. You will then be given a list of options. Find your book and you will see a page open like THIS. It gives you the amount and a due date. (You have the option to change the due date) add to your cart and check out! They offer free shipping both ways, they have a 30 day risk free return policy, and live customer support.

One of my absolute favorite perks of Campus Book Rentals is that they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented! Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives. 

"Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a productive life." That is where Operation Smile comes in. now has a new program, RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is awesome because it makes 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?! You can learn more about this great program by checking out the short video below. 

Campus Book Rentals and definitely gets two thumbs up for me as I have four teens who will soon enough be making their way into college and I will need every extra cent I can possibly get!
