Update: The trade-in prices have gone down, but you can still take advantage of the great prices on books today!
Plus you can save an additional $5 off $15 with code (Exp: 12/14 at 11:59pm PST): BOOKGIFT17
The code is only valid once per Amazon account, but if you have Prime you can share Prime benefits with another account and take advantage of promotions twice.
Amazon is offering a trade-in value for many books that are higher than they are charging.
Sample books with a higher trade-in value than the selling price:
- The Boxcar Children Bookshelf (The Boxcar Children Mysteries, Books 1-12): $11.56 before coupon savings (Trade in value: $12.71)
- Buy together with The Giver Quartet boxed set: $6.39 (Trade in value: $8.90) for a total of $12.95 after $5 off (Total trade-in value of $21.61).
- Or buy the Boxcar set with a filler item from this post like Corduroy Book and Bear, Where the Sidewalk Ends Special Edition, Baby’s Box of Fun, Love You Forever, Pete the Cat, Everything Is Mama.
- Harry Potter Complete Book Series Special Edition Boxed Set: $21.03 after $5 off (Trade in value: $27.40)
For example the Boxcar set is $11.56 or can be just $10 with a filler item after the $5 off code. Amazon will give you a $12.71 gift card for you to ship it back to them. There is no charge for trade-in shipping:
The Harry Potter set is $21.03 after the $5 off code, but Amazon will give you a $27.40 gift card for you to ship it back to them:
Those are great deals even if you don’t trade them in, but it’s always interesting when the trade-in value is higher than the selling price.
The trade-in offer will go away after they get enough trade-ins submitted, but once you receive a confirmation you will receive the quoted gift card.
