    While adding a book to my Amazon Trade-In/Buyback Program order today I noticed that they had added a small step in the process, requiring you to verify the ISBN number of each book entered for resale.  I can only assume that this is to eliminate the amount of textbooks received in error during the busy back to school season.

    I have been using Bookscouter for several years now as a way to get cash for books which I am not listing online.  I highly recommend this website for any students who do not think they are getting enough cash from their local bookstore, or for those who do not want to mess with the hassle of shipping books to their customer.  I regularly ship books to Amazon, Powells, and Valore Books, all of whom provide free shipping labels and pay promptly after the books have been received and processed, Amazon being the quickest to process by several weeks.  They will even return the books that do not meet their condition guidelines free of charge, although just about anything that is not damaged or missing contents will meet their requirements.

    The other thing I appreciate about the Amazon Buyback program is that the funds can be deposited directly into your Amazon account in order to purchase items on your Wish List.

    Here is an instructional article I wrote on how to use Bookscouter along with a link to Bookscouter owner Brandon Checketts blog post about the article.

    Here are examples of two computer books I got over $50 in credit for using the Amazon Buyback program:
