It's no secret that college is expensive and it's always a wise move to look for ways to cut costs in every aspect of your school life.    One of the most common things I hear college students complain about is the price of books.   

But, if you're smart you can actually save 40-90% off of bookstore prices simply by renting your books! is a great way to get a huge discount on books and free shipping both ways.  That's right, you just ship it back when you are done.  And, you can even highlight in the textbooks! has flexible renting periods and with each textbook rented, they donate to Operation Smile.  

Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that helps every child to get access to safe, quality surgical care to help with those born with facial deformities.  Not everyone is blessed with a perfect smile, so let's help change that! 

Aside from that, offers RentBack, which allows students to rent the textbooks they own to other students! This makes you 2-4x more money compared to what you'd actually make through buyback options.  See the video below for more info! 

So keep this in mind when you are making your list of ways to cut back on expenses in college!!!
