Looking to make a little extra cash and clear out your bookshelves all at once? Cash4Books.net, an online book buyer out of Beaverton, Oregon, is offering an additional 15% payout on your buyback total when you use the code SecretStash at checkout. I really like this program and especially love not having to lug my books to Powell’s Books (and pay for the gas to get there) and or host a garage sale.
Here’s how it works:
:: Go to Cash4Books.net, enter the ISBN number of your books, including recent textbooks, and click “price my books.”
I entered the info for my copy of Dave Ramsey’s The Total Money Makeover (which is an absolute must-read).
The next screen will tell you if Cash4Books.net is buying that particular book and how much they will pay you for it. I was offered $2.08 for my Dave Ramsey book, which I think is a decent price for minimal work on my part. Note that most of the books they purchase have a publication date of 2007 and newer and their needs change, so a book that is rejected today may be accepted in a couple of weeks or months.
:: At checkout, use the code SecretStash and you’ll get an additional 15% added to your total.
:: Print the pre-paid mailing label, put it on your envelope and mail the books. Shipping is free!
:: Get paid! After your books are received, inspected and processed, you will get paid by check or PayPal within three business days.
Please note that Cash4Books.net is a bit picky about which books they will accept. They are looking for newer and popular publications. Your dusty books sitting around since college (no matter how old you are :)) will probably not be accepted.
If something is not accepted, you can always post it on PaperBackSwap.com to see if you can trade it for a book you want. My daughter loves to post her read chapter books on PaperBackSwap.com. Once she gets a credit, she gets to select another book!
