Need Extra $$$?

Last week, one of the moms of the blogs I read discovered Amazon’s trade-in store, and ended up having almost 400 dollars worth of credit between six text books! After researching what the books were worth, she found that Amazon was offering me a very fair price. 

You are able to ship the books for free and quickly received the credit in my account.

Besides text books, Amazon also accepts electronics, movies and television series, video games, consoles, and accessories for trade. I would highly encourage you to check out this program. Paired with free shipping and price matching, the store credit could really come in handy.
