Rent college textbooks, help a child get a beautiful smile!!

I learned about when one of their representatives reached out to me recently.  They wanted me to share the news about their partnership with Operation Smile, as well as the perks of renting your textbooks from them.  Even though Katie won't be in college for another year, I was really excited to learn about this great company, and even more happy to hear how they are giving back. 

Remember when you were in college and you would buy your textbooks, then at the end of the semester you would sell them back for pennies on the dollar? SO frustrating, right?  Now you can go to and rent your textbooks online for less!  (Where were they when I was in college?!)

Want to learn about some of the benefits of renting your textbooks from them? Well, how about 40% - 90% off bookstore prices?  Both new and gently used books are available for rental with free shipping both ways.  There's even a 30 day risk free guarantee  (you can return your books within 30 days for any reason and get a full refund!).  You can highlight and underline as needed in your rental books, and you have the option of buying any of the books you rent.  There are no membership fees required - it's free to sign up! Once you are registered with them you can win great prizes like textbook scholarships, monthly giveaways, shirts and more. Follow them on Twitter and Facebook for more details! has been in business since 2007, with customers on more than 5800 campuses (and counting!) across the country.  If you are in college or have a family member who is, please check out this website - it's such a great way to get the books you need and save money!

Oh, and I must tell you about their partnership with Operation Smile.  For their 2011 Making a Difference Program, they have committed to donating enough money to provide a minimum of 1000 life-changing cleft lip surgeries.  For every book rented, a portion of the proceeds is donated to Operation Smile.  If you aren't familiar with this wonderful organization, please read about some of the children who have experienced the blessing of an Operation Smile surgery.  They do such good things, and I really love that is helping them in such a generous way!

I plan to sign up with next Fall when my baby girl is ready to begin college.  Until then, I'd love to hear what you think about them - leave me a comment if you have used (or plan to use) them!  Have a great weekend y'all!

*Disclosure ~ is sending me a gift basket in return for my sharing about their company and partnership with Operation Smile.  I received no monetary compensation for this post*

  3. Hi,

    Its true. I agree with the advantage of renting college textbooks. The students can rent textbooks at the beginning of semester. Once they complete then they can seel it back. This will help to regain their money.Also as suggested the students can rent new or used textbooks based on their decision. Renting textbooks will help to save hundreds of dollars per semester.

  4. Its really very good advantage for students to Rent College Textbooks through online its quite affordable with lots of savings.

  5. This is an amazing idea! I used to sell and buy Used College Textbooks all the time when I was in college. I'm all about saving money, but to be able to help the less fortunate at the same time is such a great idea! Operation smile is doing a great work. Thank you for supporting these efforts by posting them on your site.
