College Students, want to save and make money? Rent your books!

We are already into July and September will be here before you know it. If you are still buying books from your college campus or online, you should stop.
You are wasting money that could be saved by renting your texts. If that's not enough, you will MAKE money by renting your own out to other students. Read on for more details.

I'm back to talk a little bit about and for those of you haven't heard of them. is a program that allows you to rent your text books for considerably less money than other avenues you may take to get them. Like say, very overpriced campus book stores. This company was founded by a college student that just knew there was a better, cheaper and fair way to get through college. They are also one of the first tried and true company to have started a renting option and have rented over 1 million books to date. They have almost every book you could ever need because college students are the ones renting and selling from them!

Some of the great perks you get from joining this company:
  • Save 40-90% off of bookstore prices. 
  • 30 day risk free returns.
  • Free shipping both ways. They provide a pre-paid envelope.
  • You can highlight in the textbooks. 
  • They have flexible renting periods.
  • My favorite: They donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented. Operation Smile is a charity that helps unfortunate  kids pay for cleft palette and other body abnormalities. It is a great cause. 
After you are done with your books or if you have any current books that may be of use to college students, you can rent them out yourself . Thanks to, you now have the option to make even more money by opting to rent over selling your books. The best part about this is that you are in charge and the students are the ones buying so there will always be a demand for your books at some point. 

If I was still in college, I would definitely take part in the program. I think I would have saved 100's of dollars rather than being ripped off by my bookstores and other sellers.

You should really consider giving them a shot! Here is a video with more info to help you in your decision to join their program, but I think it's a no brainer.
