I went to college at the one and only West Virginia University (Let’s Gooo… Mountaineers). While there I collected an ENORMOUS amount of books (I also paid an equally enormous amount of money for them). If you were like me, you swore that there was no need to trade the books back in at the end of the semester because you would DEFINITELY use them again one day. Boy was I WRONG! I was left with boxes upon boxes of old books and reading material that I am never going to use again.
I recently came across an article on The Krazy Coupon Lady about an amazing website that tells you what is the best site to sell your textbooks back too. And thus I introduce to you, BookScouter. All you have to do is type in the ISBN number that you find on the back of the book….
I decided to start with books that I could return to Amazon’s Buy Back program. I wanted to start here because I am very familiar with Amazon and know they have great customer satisfaction policies in case anything happens. In addition to paying you for your used books, Amazon also pays for full shipping costs.
Once I figured out all the books that would give me the maximum value at Amazon, I put them all on the trade in list and one by one they added up. Once finished, I hit trade in, confirmed my address, and hit submit.
This was seriously just as easy as adding stuff to you cart and hitting check out.
The site took me to a screen where I could print out both the packing slip and the shipping label.
