Trade Textbooks for Cash

So, you bought the book so you could take the class. Now, just a few months (or weeks) later, you’re finished with the class, and you’re out hundreds for your text books. But not to worry; I have 3 awesome and super easy ways to get your money back! I actually MADE money doing this because I purchased a book for less than I sold it back for!

Decluttr – Decluttr is one of the easiest way to sell your unwanted text books. In addition, they also take used CDs, DVDs, Games, Blu-Rays, Books and Tech! So, while you’re cashing in on your textbooks, make sure you go through your other stuff to see if you can cash in even more! They also will let you print a pre-paid shipping label (so you aren’t out any shipping money)! Enter my special referral code: DTRGGMCJ34 and it will earn you an additional $10.00!

Amazon’s Textbook Trade-In – With the Amazon Trade-In program, you can send items such as textbooks, electronics, video games, DVDs, and more — in exchange for an Gift Card. This is pretty awesome because when you get that gift card, you can turn around and Join Prime Student with FREE Two-Day Shipping (for College Students)! Amazon also offers a free shipping label for your convenience.

K12Book Buyer – They pay you via paypal for your books. Read my tutorial about how to open a paypal account so you can be paid by k12 Book Buyer!


One additional tip: I would enter the ISBN of your books on every one of these sites because one may pay more than the other. That’s actually how I ended up making MORE on a text book I purchased for less!

On the other hand…are you looking for textbooks? BookLender is an awesome resource for college students looking to buy textbooks for a lower price.
