Needing Cash for Spring Break? Try!

Sponsored Post has been a trusted source since 2007 to provide text books to college students at an affordable rate. 

With Spring Break coming up, I thought I'd remind you all of this great company! Everyone likes to take a vacation for Spring Break and let loose, but now-a-days most of us need to save in order to take a trip. Since there's only a couple months of school left before Summer, you should take the time to sort through your books and see if renting them to other students is an option for what you have to offer!

If you go to their sister site,, you can rent out your 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? Not only could put the money toward renting new books for other classes, but that leaves less clutter for unused books, and money in your pocket! 

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, they take care of everything else. 

Let's say you're just heading in to college come Fall. Well, then you need to check out before your purchase from the book store. While I never went to college, I know some books can cost hundreds of dollars, and if you're only in the class a semester or two then that just seems like a waste of money. 

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 something comes up and 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 of your book and you're all set. 

Another thing I like is they offer 30 day risk free trial period of the books. If you rented a book and then after a couple weeks decided it isn't really needed, simply return it for a refund and that frees up money and space for other books you do need!

One other great thing about is that they donate a portion of each book rented to Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an amazing company that goes to different countries to help children with deformities get the medical intervention they need to lead 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. Remember, every time you rent from, you're helping donate since part of your proceeds go to the charity, as well as getting closer to helping another child.
