Operation Smile & CampusBookRentals.com

Sponsored Post

 Operation Smile is an amazing company that goes to different countries to help children with deformities get the medical intervention they need for a more normal, healthy life. 

Since 1982, Operation Smile, through the help of dedicated medical volunteers, has provided more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities. 

You can donate to Operation Smile to help make a difference to the lives of others that don't normally have the chance to get help. Every time you rent from CampusBookRentals.com, you're helping donate since part of your proceeds go to the charity and get children just that much closer to help. 

Books can be so expensive!!! You use them for a short period of time and then they sit and collect dust. CampusBookRentals.com is a great way for students on a budget to rent the books they need, save money, and then turn around and send them back when done. The best part is that you can treat the books like you own them because they allow highlighting marks with no risk of a "damage fee". How awesome does it sound to save 40-90% off retail of books, get free shipping both ways, have the books for as long as you need, and highlight needed sections?!

You're able to select your renting period, whether its one semester or the whole school year, and then you get a 15 day grace period if you need the book a few extra days. If you decide you need the book longer than expected, you simply get online and extend the rental period and you're all set until the new due date. They also offer 30 day risk free trial period of the books. After a couple weeks you've decided a particular book isn't needed, you can simply return it for a refund, which then frees up money for other books you need!

If you go to CampusBookRentals.com's sister site RentBack.com, you can now rent out your owned books to other students and make money!! 

This is such a genius idea! You find out about renting your books from them and yet you have old books laying around, so why not send them in to make a little extra money? You could put the money toward renting new books for other classes, and then don't have the clutter of the old books in the way! 

All you have to do is find the book on their site, print out a shipping label, and mail the book in. From then on, as long as your book(s) are in demand, CampusBookRentals.com takes care of everything else and all you do is rake in the extra cash. 

Since we're nearing Christmas, I think this would be a great time to clear out clutter, check to see what books are no longer needed, and take advantage of the great offers I mentioned above. Everyone can use extra cash around the holidays right?!
