Operation Smile and


I’m a sucker for a company who gives a portion of their earnings to an organization. I’ve been a college student for what seems like my entire life. I wish I had known about back in my undergrad. Textbooks are incredibly overpriced when you buy them new. Chances are that you are going to use a book for one semester and then sell it back. When you sell it back you may get a quarter of the new price back. Heavy on the MAY get that much back. The great thing about is that you can save 40-90% off of bookstore prices. What?! That’s killer savings people! With your textbook rental you also get free shipping BOTH ways with flexible renting periods. Also, I’m a highlighter when I read the textbook. You would think you aren’t allowed to mark in the book but that’s not the case. You can highlight to your hearts content.




And now there is a new website called This is a new company that allows students to rent the textbooks they own to other students. If you do buy a book, you can make back 2-4x more money compared to what you would make through buyback options. Pretty cool, right? 


But here is the kicker for how awesome this company is. donates to Operation Smile with EACH textbook that is rented. Operation Smile is an international charity for children born with facial deformities such as a cleft lip and cleft palate. Operation Smile provides FREE surgeries to. So when you rent a book, you are also helping a child have a beautiful smile for life. It’s a win-win situation for all!




So I encourage you to check out if you are in school. Save money and help other at the same time.
