The semester is already in full swing but you might still be putting off buying your textbooks, I know I am. I refuse to spend money on a $200 textbook that I won't be able to sell for more than $50 once the semester is over. School bookstores are known for stealing your money and ripping you off when it comes to textbooks.

My school is notorious for making students purchase the school version of a textbook, that way we can't buy it off Amazon for half the price.

I discovered that mistake first semester of freshmen year when I spent over $300 on textbooks I never would even need. After that fatal disaster, I started to rent my textbooks.

Renting textbooks is beyond the smartest decision you can make throughout your four years of college.

One of the best websites I've ever used to rent textbooks is They are relatively cheaper than other rental websites and are 40-90% cheaper than bookstores. With CampusBookRentals you're able to get free shipping, flexible rental time periods (which you can't do with book stores) and you can even highlight in their textbooks.

Highlighting in textbooks is a major bonus, especially for me because I like to be able to visualize what I'm reading and what I need to study and know.

There is something unique about CampusBookRentals and that's the fact that with every purchase you make on their website, they donate a portion of it to Operation Smile.

Operation Smile is a charity that helps children with clef palettes get the help they need and allow them to have the best, most beautiful smile around. Does it get much better than that? You get a cheap textbook and a child gets a smile in return.

Also, another unique feature about CampusBookRentals is their Rentback Program. Here is a little description of what that entails:

RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) Isn't that awesome?!

I've used many times before and they have the biggest, best selection of textbooks. Their customer service is outstanding and it really does save you a ton of money. If you've been putting off buying textbooks because you're terrified of watching your bank account deplete,  take advantage of

What are your thoughts on renting textbooks?
