Quick Tip: Make Money on Your College Textbook Buybacks

Hey there college students!  It isn't easy to be perpetually broke and living in tiny dorm rooms.  Here’s a tip that’ll line your pockets and lighten your load at the same time: the Amazon Textbook Buyback Program. Simply search for your old textbook titles or ISBNs, print out a shipping label and packing slip, pack up your books, and ship ‘em out. You’ll be paid with an Amazom.com gift card, which may not sound as good as cash, but you can use it for groceries, home goods, electronics, and more.

And if you're graduating from college, I have great advice for you on setting yourself up financially so you can get on your feet faster!  Check it out right here. As for paying off student loans, I have an entire episode devoted to that.
