Sell your used books for the most cash

If you're like most people, you probably have a lot of books sitting around that are no longer getting read. Instead of taking up space, why not de-clutter AND turn those old books into cash? Luckily, there are an abundance of sites that offer to buy back used textbooks and books, but the prices that they offer often vary widely.

Here's a tip on how to sell your textbooks for the most money: Instead of spending lots of time searching the different possibilities, just:

1.) Go to 2.) Automatically search 44 buyback vendors with a single search, 100% FREE with no registration required 3.) Compare price sellers AND feedback 4.) Ship for FREE and get paid

All you have to is enter an ISBN (series of digits located over the "UPC code" bar on the back of all books) into the search field. This allows BookScouter to automatically compare the exact title on many different buyback websites, ensuring that you get the most money for that book. Simply pick the highest paying (or best reviewed) vendor and print a free shipping label, send the book, and receive your payment.
