Used Textbooks = $$$
This weekend while my husband and I were doing some spring cleaning I stumbled upon text books from graduate school and my undergraduate studies. I decided to list them on Half.com because they have been taking up precious space and were not being used. That's when I discovered Instant Sale on Half.com!
It has been awhile since I bought or sold a text book and I must tell you I was pretty excited when I found out I could instantly sell books back on Half.com. I was so excited to find out that my books were actually still worth something. One of them was worth $20! Shocking!
When selling your book through Instant Sale, you have the option of getting a half.com gift card (with a bonus 15%) or PayPal funds as payment. Another perk is that is FREE to ship your books to Half.com. Once you get a price for your book you get a printable shipping label to mail your book.
Using Half.com Instant Sale was quick, easy, and profitable! I can't wait to sell more textbooks that are taking up space!
You can also instantly sell textbooks, books, electronics, and other items to Amazon.com's Trade-In program in exchange for Amazon.com gift cards. Amazon.com sends you a free printable UPS label to send your items.
Between Half.com Instant Sale and Amazon.com Trade-In I was able to receive $75 dollars for my used textbooks! I still have more to sort through, but I think this is a pretty lucrative start! :)
What do you do with your used text books? Where do you purchase textbooks?
