Earning a Little Amazon Cash

I’m a big fan of the Amazon trade-in program. I came across the program while searching for a place to sell unwanted DVDs. While I know I can go through the hassle of listing each DVD individually on eBay I decided I’d rather not go to all that trouble.

Instead I searched for the various DVD titles on Amazon.com and added any that Amazon was willing to buy to my trade-in cart. Just a few minutes later I printed the shipping list and label and sealed the books and movies in a previously used envelope, which I’ll drop off at UPS tomorrow.

All told I’ll earn over $25 in Amazon gift cards. I had no problem selling the books and DVDs. I don’t plan to watch or read any of them again, so it seemed like a no-brainer to ship them off to a place that will give me credit towards something else.

    I didn't know this was even an option! I just listed a bunch of my DVDs for sale used on Amazon, but sending them in sounds like a much sweeter deal.

    Thanks for the heads up.
