There’s no doubt about it, college is expensive. None the less it’s a dream that a lot of people have or have had that can better your life if you work hard and find the right career. There’s a lot of expenses associated with higher learning including the textbooks you have to have. Some of the them are down right ridiculous as far as the price goes to get a book you NEED to have.
There is a solution to this, CampusBookRentals.com. You can save 40-90% off bookstore prices. You get free shipping both ways, and yes you can highlight in the textbooks. You get flexible rental periods and they make a donation to OperationSmile with each textbook rented.
Here is a short video to tell you in simple terms how their service works.
They also have a new program called, Rentback.com. If you already bought textbooks there’s a solution for you too. Rentback.com allows you to rent your textbooks to other students. You can make 2-4X more money than you would with a bookstore buy back program. What college student couldn’t use some extra money?
I wish they would have had this when I was in college. It would have been such a better option for me. I remember one of my textbooks I HAD to have was $600!! Insane.
Angie’s List went from 27% cash back to 42%
AVON from 3.5% up to 14%
Florsheim shoes from 3.5% to 14%
Old Navy from 2% to 14%
Funsational from 15% to 28%
Magazines.com from 26% to 42%
Hanna Andersson from 2.5% to 14%
But there are lots more. Don’t forget if you are new to Ebates, when you sign up for a new account (whihch is free by the way) you can earn a free $10 gift card by spending your first $25 through Ebates within 30 days
Why use Ebates? Well that’s easy. You shop online anyway. They have a big selection of your favorite stores to choose from. Let’s say you were going to order some clothes for your kids from a sale at OldNavy.com. Go through Ebates first and with the Birthday Bash you’ll ear 14% of your money back. So to make it simple, if you spend $50 through OldNavy.com during the birthday bash you’ll earn $7 back. That’s money back in your pocket that you wouldn’t have if you went straight to OldNavy.com without using Ebates.
I’m a big shopper online so I love Ebates. There are tons of stores whether you need ink for your printer, want to order a magazine subscription, buying a wedding gift from someone’s target registry, etc. The real question is, why wouldn’t you shop through Ebates?

I’m actually a bit envious that this website only covers New York City. I’d love to see this website expand for other areas. But in the mean time, if you live around New York City or visit frequently, you’re gonna want to check this out.
Vimbly.com has all kind of activities, classes, etc. listed on their site and you can book them right on Vimbly.com. I was looking through the list myself and saw that there was a gelato making class available. Wow, I didn’t even know you could find such a thing, I’d love to do that!
If you’re not into gelato, that’s cool, there’s other things too like whitewater rafting, NYC Sailing Charters, Stand-Up Comedy, Sushi Making Class, and more. Another fun one I found under the “adrenaline” section Clydesdale horseback ride and brewery tasting. That sound like an amazing time. How many people can say they road a Clydesdale? I know I can’t.
The site is broken up into sections including a Mother’s Day special section, live shows, and more.
The also have a thing called the “Vimbly Handshake” if you have a bad experience they’ll try to remedy the situation, if you are unhappy with a vendor they’ll give you your money back. So really you don’t have anything to lose by booking from them. You book you have an awesome experience, then your good. You book you have a bad experience it’s either fixed or you get your money back.

If you’re not in the NYC area but have friends or family who are they have gift certificates available too.
I have been blogging seriously for about 4 years now. I will be the first to tell you that I feel there is still so much I need to know. I’m eager for tips from trusted sources, I wanna know what is the best thing for my blog, I wanna know how to turn my blog into a my main career. I see other moms attending blog conferences. They look so exciting and full of useful knowledge. Honestly though I have no idea, at this point in my life, how I could possibly ever attend one in person.
I’m a mom of 4 kids, one of which is a newborn and breastfeeding. Then there’s the fact that I work outside of my home part-time and that fact that my hubby can work any time 24/7, 365. He has to request off months in advance for a vacation or anything. He put in for my sister’s wedding in July and it’s looking like he’s not going to get that day off. I mean, he got mandated to come into work Christmas morning this past year!
I don’t have a ready supply of babysitters eager for the chance to watch my 4 kids. Everyone in my family works, even my hubby’s grandmother (our kids great-grandmother). So for me to take off for a blog conference somewhere is almost out of the question. Not to mention the cost of the conference, hotel room, airfare or gas money depending on where it is, money for food, etc. etc. Don’t get me wrong, if I had the chance, I would definitely go, it’s just not been able to work out for me so far.
BUT I found a great conference I can attend ONLINE! And some of the speakers, they’re companies I already work with!
