Save Money in College with

Saturday, May 14, 2011 Posted by Dina N

When I was in college, textbooks were a major expense. I always tried to buy used but even then, they set me back hundreds of dollars each semester. Selling them back to the bookstore at the end of school recouped some of the money but not nearly enough. And when a new edition was coming, I could not even do that. I dreaded having to shell out all that money - college was already expensive enough without handing over $150 for a book I only needed for a few months.

I wished there was a way I could rent textbooks for the semester, then return them when I was done with them. With, you can do just that! Renting books is way cheaper than buying them - and also the green thing to do. If you are in college or know someone who is, check out and see for yourself how much you can save. You'll never stand in line at the college bookstore again!

Last but not least - I have to mention that the company partnered with Operation Smile to donate over 1,000 life-saving cleft lip surgeries this year. For every book rented, they will donate a portion of those proceeds to Operation Smile hoping to meet and exceed the goal of 1,000 lives changed. As a mom, I know firsthand the beauty of a child's smile. So give a try - each book you rent will not just save you money but help a child smile.

    Very great idea indeed! I remember my student years, it was quite different in my country,we had to take books from the Library, but there was not enough amount of books, so it was always the problem to search for them and spend money of course!
