Be A Step Ahead for the Fall Semester :D

Hello ladies and gents!!!
I know I know. Long time, no post. 
BUT I'm here again to talk to you guys about a textbook rental company called

Even though the Spring semester has barely ended (I have 2 more finals until I'm free!), I have already started thinking about next Fall.
I know books can get SUPER expensive and it can cause a bit of stress in us, college students.
That is why I want to share with you guys an alternative: instead of BUYING, why not RENT?

-You can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices.
-They offer free shipping both ways.
-You are free to highlight in the textbooks.
-They have flexible renting periods.
-They offer 30-day risk free returns.

I rented one of my books this semester and it really did save me money compared to buying it. 

They also recently launched their new program called RentBack

Here, you are able to rent the textbooks you own to other students. How awesome is that?! 
I'm actually going to try it after I take all my finals this semester.
You'll make 2-4x more money compared to what you'd make through buybacks. 
Who doesn't want that? :D

In addition, with every book you add to your cart, donates a portion of the proceeds to Operation Smile.

Operation Smile is an organization that performs cleft lip surgeries for children whose families cannot afford it. 
So, by renting your books for a whole semester, not only are you saving money, but you are also making a difference by helping to improve a child's life. 

It's definitely a WIN-WIN! 
I sure hope you guys give it a try. :D
