Getting Your Penny’s Worth on Books

Back to School Books

The semester will begin in just a few short weeks and your list of text books is already daunting. I remember those days. My husband and I spent hundreds of dollars for each class to purchase a book that is now collecting dust on our shelves.

Luckily, most of the books we could find used on multiple sites. Here are few we used to help with cost:

Now that I have no use for so many dated books, I’ve been in search for places to sell them back to. UNLV barely gives any money for books and most of the time doesn’t accept older editions.

Amazon offers a trade-in option that gives you gift cards for your products. Used books stores near campus like Rebel Books will pay a portion of the original price of your book. No, I will no be receiving the full $200 we spend on a business 101 book, but at least it’s something.

What other programs have you used to save a penny on books?
