If you are a college student, you will want to read this.

When I was receiving my undergrad at USU, I can remember the day student athletes were to pick up our books. They had them stored in a nice little room in the Spectrum, sitting all nicely in a box waiting for you to the pick them up.

I also remember picking up my own books from the USU bookstore and after paying close to a whopping $500 for one semester, seat belting those babies up in my car! If I am going to spend that much on them, I am going to take care of them! Not that it mattered too much though, only getting less than 40% of what the book cost when I would return it at the end of the semester.

Well, folks, those textbook woes are over!

I was recently introduced to a wonderful company called CampusBookRentals.com. Instead of buying your textbooks and only getting a portion of the money back, you can rent your textbook and return it on your schedule!

Some other perks include:

+ Saving 40-90% off of bookstore prices
+ Free shipping both ways
+ You can highlight those babies up all you want
+ The renting time frame is flexible to your schedule
+ Most importantly, for every book rented, CampusBookRentals.com donates a portion of their earnings to Operation Smile

If you haven't heard of Operation Smile it is a wonderful internal foundation that heals children's smile {correcting cleft lips}. 
But, wait! There's more! {Was that a cheesy enough line for ya?}  ;)

If you are like me in my graduate program, I actually want to keep my books {as they relate to my career}. So, renting books doesn't quite fit my life right now. BUT! Through CampusBookRentals.com I can rent MY books to other students, make a profit and still own them!

If you would like more information, check out their websites listed above or view these videos:

I think what CampusBookRentals.com is doing is fabulous! I intend on using them and I hope you do too! If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know and also feel free to spread the word about this wonderful company!

This is a sponsored post. I was compensated for my sincere and honest opinion.
