Three easy ways to make more money
Looking to make some extra money? You may not be able to depend on these resources for regular income, but each one may help you make a few extra dollars.
This online company pays cash for your gently used books. Just visit www.cash4books.net and type in the ISBN numbers of the books you are looking to sell. Cash4books.net will tell you how much you can get for the book and even provide you with a free shipping label to mail the books directly to the company. After the company receives your books, they pay you by check or PayPal depending on your preference.
Do you have DVDs and video games that you no longer want? Textbooks from college that you don’t need? Sell your items to Amazon in exchange for Amazon giftcards.
Amazon currently offers four different trade-in programs—books, electronics, movies, TV and video games. Visit www.amazon.com/tradein then choose the category for your item and type in the title or keyword to see what your item is worth. After you have gone through the selling process, print off a shipping label and wait for a giftcard credit to your Amazon account.
Did you know you can earn giftcards just for searching for things on the internet? Visit www.swagbucks.com to learn more about how using the Swagbucks search engine can give you points that can be redeemed for giftcards to websites such as Amazon.com. You can also earn points by taking surveys, playing games or watching movies.
