If you are looking for an easy way to clear out clutter and make a few bucks, this is it. Amazon has an awesome program where you can trade-in your stuff for an Amazon gift card. This deal can work great for textbooks!!

Trade-In Categories Include:

Laptops & Tablets
Wearable Electronics
Books & Textbooks
Video Games
TV & Movies
MP3 Player

How it Works:

Once you enter an item, Amazon will tell you if it is accepted and how much it is worth. There are different amounts based on the condition of the item. After you have entered everything, you’ll hit submit. It gives you a printable list of items to include and a free shipping label.

You’ll box it up, send it in, and get your gift card. If Amazon doesn’t accept one of your items, they will send it back to you for free. Keep in mind you’ll probably only get around 50¢ for DVDs and $1-2 for Blu-Rays, but it does add up. Bigger items like cell phones, MP3 players, etc. are worth a lot more.

      This was a wonderful option for me for selling back my college textbooks. So easy and quick, and some had very good payouts!

      Ooooh, I’d LOVE to get rid of dvds, cameras, phones, and other stuff! And, I could totally enjoy a gift card to amazon! Thanks for posting!

      I traded in my Wii (motion plus), balance board, and a few games last week for about $100 total. It was more than I could expect to get just trying to sell it locally or even in a social media setting. Much safer too!
