As a recent college graduate, I went through the struggle of saving up for college textbooks. All the money I saved during the summer vanished as soon as I checked out at the college bookstore. Bucks for Books is a great and easy way to win up to $500 toward those pricey textbooks!



I wish you all a great school year, and good luck!

Take care,

Jake
