College Tip: Rent Your Textbooks

I’m slowly but surely making my way towards that fabulous Bachelor’s degree. This degree is going to be the big accomplishment for me. I struggled hard to get my AA, and now I’m putting in so much of myself into obtaining my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. It’s been a steady push forward and I’m proud of myself for remaining consistent in my efforts.

Because I attend school online most people don’t realize I am still a college student. The first year of this journey was entirely with online texts so there would be no physical proof of my enrollment had I not decided to openly share this information. However, since I’m at the half-way point now I’m finding physical copies of books to highlight and reference is a must.

You know how it is with textbooks: You pay an arm and a leg and during buybacks you’re lucky to get just one limb back. That’s why renting textbooks is a good choice for those of us on a budget. makes it really easy. I decided to purchase the text book I’m using now, but for half the price I can rent The First Days of School and keep it until June if I wanted to. If I went through Amazon Student, I’d pay $2 more.

Here are some more perks of

  • save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
  • free shipping both ways
  • can mark and highlight in the textbooks
  • flexible renting periods
  • free shipping both ways!

And that’s not all. also donates to Operation Smile for each book that is rented.

So don’t stress out this semester. Simply grab that list of expensive required texts and get your rent on!
