Disclosure: I partnered with Campus Book Rentals on this post. All opinions about Campus Book Rentals and Operation Smile are 100% mine.
I have partnered with Campus Book Rentals on my blog for the last few years. I think they are a wonderful company who also helps out children in need with every textbook rented. This time though, working with them takes on a special meaning. My oldest child is going to be graduating from high school in a couple of weeks. I am not sure where the time went. While she is not going to travel to go to school, she is thinking about a great community college in the area with an art program. When it comes time for her to get textbooks, we know the first place we are going to go.
Did you know that you can rent college textbooks? Back when I went to college, that was not an option. We had to spend hundreds of dollars on books that we were only going to use for a few months, and hope that we could sell them back at a much lower price at the end of the semester. Renting your textbooks from Campus Books Rentals, you can save 40-90% off the cost of buying, and do not have worry about what to do with the book when the class is done. Shipping is free both ways, which saves you even more money. If you like to highlight in your textbooks, that is okay too. The company knows that different schools are in session at different times, so they offer very flexible renting periods.
For every textbook rented, Campus Book Rentals donates to the organization Operation Smile. Operation Smile has been in existence for over 30 years, and to date has provided over 220,000 free surgeries for children with cleft lips, cleft palates, and other facial deformities around the world. They have saved the lives of thousands and thousands of children over the years. I love that you can save money renting something you need, and help save lives at the same time.
