I love Amazon.com. They’ve got a great selection of products, unbelievably awesome customer service, special discounts with their Subscribe N Save program, free shipping on lots of products, and I can shop from home! What more could I want from them? Well, it would be nice if they’d pay me instead of me always paying them, and as it turns out, they can make that happen, too!
I love books. I mean LOVE. I love books like most women love shoes, like men like chainsaws (or trucks or flasks or golf or whatever it is they’re obsessed with), like kids love candy. Unfortunately though, I just don’t have room to keep hoarding my growing collection of books. I couldn’t bear the thought of my precious books, that I paid good money for, sitting on a shelf a Goodwill collecting dust. I gave some away. I tried to sell some at a yard sale. I know I could sell them online on Half.com, but I just don’t have the energy or patience to do all of that work.
I could sell my books on Amazon.com, but it’s pretty much just like Half.com, so I don’t want to bother with it. However, Amazon has another option for people looking to sell their books (and DVD’s, CD’s, and other media). They have a Buy-Back program. They literally buy your unwanted books back from you. You just type in the title, click to sell it back to them, print out the free prepaid postage label, ship it, and wait to receive your Amazon gift card.
I’ve probably sold back around 10 books and DVD’s so far. I’m not getting rich, but I am getting paid to get rid of things I don’t need. And I do admit that I may use some of the money to buy a new book or 2.
So if you’ve got unwanted media just sitting around, unclutter your house and earn some money by selling it to Amazon. It’s super-easy, and fairly profitable. Although I don’t get paid to say this, I’m gonna say it anyway: Amazon: as close to perfect as a store could get!
