There’s a new way to make money from old textbooks. Use Amazon’s new trade-in program and get a gift card for the site that you can use for next semester’s books. The program also works for video games, movies, and hardware. Your items must be in good condition or Amazon won’t accept them.
First you find your book or DVD on the trade-in site, which I linked to above. When I searched for “chemistry” the program found 1,295 results with trade-in values from $.90 to $77. You can also search by ISBN number.
If Amazon accepts your book in their trade-in program (make sure the ISBN number matches exactly), print out a shipping label, which Amazon pays for. When Amazon receives the book, it verifies it matches what you said it was, then the company drops an Amazon.com gift card into your account. Voila! Cash for next semester’s books.
