College Tuition Costs What?! Let CampusBookRentals Help Your Student

Last night as Lee and I sat watching an episode of Parenthood together, the topic of college tuition came up. $60,000 a year was the price for this Ivy League school in the show, I watched as Lee’s jaw just about dropped to the floor, apparently somebody hasn’t been up to par with just how expensive college is today and how much more it will cost by the time our children are there. That is why I love sharing sites like CampusBookRentals with you all, because no matter how much college tuition costs, it’s so worth getting your child the best education possible. The easiest way to save some cash on college costs would be to rent books, why pay full price costs for books you may only need one semester??


There are so many reasons why you should rent your college books from CampusBookRentals such as saving 40-90% off book store prices, free shipping both ways, you are allowed to highlight in the rental books, and the fact that will donate to Operation Smile for every book rented. One thing that tears at my heart strings is a company that gives back and this is a company that donates to Operation Smile every time someone rents a book. There are flexible rental options too, making renting textbooks just as easy as purchasing them but without the fear that they will devalue once your course is over.

As a parent to three children I know that I will be seeking out programs like this one, where my children can rent their textbooks for college because I will need to save money every chance I get. It’s funny, I keep thinking once the children are 18 they will fend for their own self but reality is if they choose to attend a college, I will still be financially supporting them in some ways.


Another fun fact about CampusBookrRentals is there new Rent Back option, this is where students may rent textbooks that they have to other students through the Rent Back program. This is a great way to allow students to make 2-4 times more money than they would trying to resell their textbooks from prior semesters and courses. I think this is a great way to allow students to make extra cash flow during the hardships of being a college student, maybe this could pay for their next meal, who knows!

As you can see CampusBookRentals is really a money saver in so many ways, so I think that you should look into this website if you are a parent who has a child in college or is getting to the point of planning for college. Really dive deep in to check them out as a whole and if you use their services please come back here to leave me a comment with some feedback on how it went for you. I would love to hear about your experiences with

Rent Your College Textbooks and Support Operation Smile

I recently started reading on various blogs about the website Campus Book Rentals and I must admit this is a really cool concept. Instead of paying ridiculously high prices for those books you need while working on a college degree, you can pay low prices and rent your textbooks.   One of the cool factors behind Campus Book Rentals is that they have a partnership with Operation Smile.

How Renting Textbooks Works

Simply choose the book you wish to rent, one I may have looked into while I was in my business management courses would have been Accounting Made Simple. Choose your book, pick the length of time in which you need to rent it, you will see a list of costs to the right for whatever length of time you need to rent your textbook. Add it to the cart, free shipping both ways is another fabulous plus. Save 40-90% off of book store prices by using this service. Once done selecting all of the books you are to rent, simply checkout and they will arrive. You can even highlight in the textbooks!

Operation Smile

There is one thing in this life that can get you far and that is a beautiful smile. I know this all too well, because my smile is what most compliment me on. Just imagine if you were unable to have a beautiful smile due to a cleft lip or cleft palate? Now not only imagine that but imagine you are starting your life out this way, with something that makes it difficult to have a beautiful smile and face? Operation Smile works to provide free surgeries to repair various facial deformities for children around the globe.

Save Money by Renting Textbooks

When I was taking online courses I didn’t have to have real textbooks, most were online ebooks, however, I was always advised on ways to rent textbooks as a way to be able to study better for tests and such. Recently I heard about a site called that offers a text book alternative. Rent text books and save up to 90%!

I know when you are in college the last thing you or your parents want to do is go broke on both tuition prices and textbook prices. With you can be happy knowing that you are saving money, have the ability to highlight in the rented text books and last but not least has teamed up with a program called Operation Smile. A portion of the proceeds from every book rented goes to Operation Smile to help children smile!

When you rent a textbook from you can be assured that the books are US editions. College students may highlight or write in the textbooks just be sure to remember another person will rent this textbook so try to only highlight or write what’s necessary. There are no monthly fees, membership costs, etc to join and rent textbooks from either.

Overall this is a fantastic way to save money, give back to Operation Smile and get a good college education to boot! Check out for yourself today!
