Tips to Give Back and Get Back While in College

Hey Treasures, hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are now ready for Christmas.

Mr. Aguila goes back to school tomorrow after a couple weeks off. I give you college students lots of props and I pray you all excel in your studies. I see that it isn't easy especially for those who work full time plus go to school.

On top of that the cost of education is pretty steep these days and it varies depending on what type of school you choose. So in case you don't already, one way you can save is by renting your textbooks instead of buying them. 

I have a few tips on how you give back plus get back in the book rental process.

First for the giving back part, Last year I shared about Operation Smile and you can read my post Making A Difference where I shared about this great organization that offers free surgeries to children and young adults born with facial deformities.

CampusBookRentals ( and RentBack ( donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented with their "Making a Difference program.

Some perks for renting your college textbooks from CampusBookRentals instead of buying are:
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
-free shipping both ways
-you can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-they donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

Here is a video on how it works...

Secondly you can get some cash back.  If you are like me and love to shop online then you may have already heard of Mr. Rebates.  You can sign up and get cash back for  shopping online. There are many retailers to choose from and is one of them.
Here is a diagram of how it works from the MrRebates website.

So you can search Campus Book Rentals and this will come up. You get 4% Cash Back Rebate.
Campus Book Rentals  
4% Rebate rents textbooks to college students across the nation saving them hundreds of dollars every semester. With the largest selection in the nation, flexible rental periods and free shipping both ways, it makes sense to shop here!

I hope this information will help you to save some money while you pursue your dreams.
