Love it? Pls Share it!


College, while it can be one of the best times of your life, it can also be one of the most expensive.  A large part of that expense comes from your class text books.  I can still remember my shock the first time I bought one of my books.  I figured it would be a bit pricey, maybe even up to $70, imagine my surprise when that one text cost over $100 and was no thicker than my high school trig book!  Crazy! Today, thankfully, there is a solution,! offers new and slightly used textbooks for a lot less than what you would pay at your college bookstore for the exact same books!  Not only can you save anywhere from 40% up to 90%, but shipping is free and there are no membership fees.  They have the largest selection of textbooks in the nation and offer flexible rental periods, live customer support and a 30 day return policy.

The program is completely risk-free, and any contingency you can think of is covered.  Dropping a class? No problem! offers a 30 day guarantee period where you will get 100% of the cost back!  Need to keep a book longer than the original plan?  No problem! offers several options to extend the original rental period, or you can re-rent the book at an amazing discount!  They even offer a loss/damage protection option you can choose before checking out to provide insurance against loss, theft or damages!

If you are like me, you prefer to highlight certain points in your text to help when it comes time for an exam, but can you do that with a rented text?  Yes! With you can highlight as much as you need without fear of losing the value of the book.

The process is easy, just go to, create an account, search for your books, place your order and wait to receive them in the mail!  Be sure to allow ample time for shipping, as it takes 24-48 hours to process your order, then depending on which shipping method you choose, anywhere from 5 to 14 business days for the books to arrive.

What Can I Do At The End of the Semester?

At the end of the semester gives you several options as what to do with the books. You can keep the text simply by signing in to your account and selecting the “Buy and Keep My Books” button;  you will only be charged the difference in what you have already paid in rental fees and the cost of the book. If you decide you do not need the textbook, you can easily return it to in the postage-paid envelope they provide!  And now, with their newest initiative, RentBack, you can actually rent the textbooks you own to other students!  This awesome in that it allows you to make 2 to 4 times more than what you would make through buy-back options. will also buy the textbooks you own!  Check out this video to learn how it works! 



Giving Back

Now if all of that isn’t enough to put a smile on your face, here is something that will (and not just on your face, but others too)!  For each book that is rented from, they will donate a portion of the proceeds to Operation Smile!  Operation Smile is a non-profit organization of medical volunteers who donate their time to perform free surgeries for children all around the world that are born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.  They are literally working to put a smile on the face of every child.

The Verdict

Whether you are getting ready to send your child off to college for the first time at the end of this summer, or you are already a student, I highly recommend  Imagine the time you will save by ordering your books online instead of having to go into different bookstores and search for the texts you need, comparing prices, and then picking up the books and standing in line to pay.  Not to mention having to go back to the store to return them at the end of the semester.  You can do all of that from the comfort of your own home, quickly and easily on user-friendly site.  And of course, it is a great way to save a lot of money! And remember, while puts a smile on your face, you are helping to put one of the face of a child through Operation Smile!
