Operation Smile and CampusBookRentals.com ~ #Sponsored Post

Having of gone through college I know how expensive it can be. The books especially! I remember paying o$300+ dollars for USED books and that was 13 years ago (yep just aged myself!). I can only imagine how much they must cost now!
I am actually looking into going back to school. Since becoming a Special Education Para I have grown to love watching kids with needs grow and helping them when others have given up on them. It is the most rewarding job a person can have (other then being a mommy). But the cost is scaring me. At least now I know, when I am ready to take that plunge I have options. 
CampusBookRentals.com (sponsor) helps you rent the books you need while saving up to 80% and offer free shipping! Now they have expanded that experience by offering RentBack. Students can rent out the books they own to other students! By doing this the can make 2-4X more then buy back programs! Here is how it works:

Another feature about this service that I like: they donate to Operation Smile. Operation smile is a international charity that helps kids who are born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate. Ever 3 minutes a child is born with this, and one out of 10 of them will die before their first birthday. Those who do survive are often unable to speak, eat, socialize, or simply smile. Can you imagine not seeing the beautiful smile of a child. To me nothing speaks volumes more then the smile of child. Since 1982 Operation Smile, with the help of medical volunteers, have provided more then 3.5 million patient evaluations and over 200,00 free surgeries for children and young adults.

I think it is great that CampusBookRentals donates to such a dedicated charity. I think their services alone is enough to check them out. But knowing what they stand for, makes me want to use their services even more when I get to the point in our life where I can afford to go back to school.

    I wish that I had been able to rent my books when I was in college. I spent hundreds of dollars on books every semester, may of which I couldn’t buy used. I sold them all back at the end of the semester, but got pocket change in return. This is a wonderful thing for students (and parents!).

    I wish this would have been around when my daughter was in college, would have been cheaper on the ole wallet! LOL Now that I’m going to be a grandmother, I hope there will be programs like this around in 18 yrs so my granddaughter can enjoy herself in school and her parents won’t have to worry so much about paying outrages prices for her books!
