Do you have old Cd's, DVDs, books, or video games you no longer play or want? If you do why not sell them to earn some extra money or trade them for media that you do want.
There are several sites on the web that will pay you for the media that you no longer need or want. Most of these companies will pay you by check or directly deposit the money into your paypal account. How much they offer you will depend on how "in demand" your media item is. They will also take into consideration the condition of the item. For instance, they will ask you if Cd's have scratches. Once you've made a deal with the company you will need to ship them the items. A lot of companies will pay for shipping but be sure to check the FAQ section on each site to determine individual policies.
Other sites on the net will allow you to trade your Cd's, DVDs, books, and video games with other members. Most of these sites require you to pay your own shipping costs but if you send the items through the Postal Services Medial Mail option it shouldn't cost you more than $2.50. Again, remember to view each sites FAQ section.
