Save Money By Using Swap Sites To Get Your Movies, CDs, and Books - Book Club to Swap, Trade & Exchange Books for Free.
Like many, I love to read, listen to music, and watch movies. These loves can be costly. I found a way to cut back on these cost last year. The sites below are sites where members can swap cds, books, and movies with other members and are all free to join.

First lets talk about Paperback Swap. This is my favorite of all since I love to read alot. Paperback Swap is a site that allows its members to post books that they are willing to swap with other members and receive credit when someone request a book from you and mark it received. You can then take that credit and request a book you are interested in. They even give you a free credit when you post 10 books to swap. The only expense is when someone request a book from you, then you will pay the shipping. If you follow the packaging instructions on the site it normally cost $3 or under.

If you like music, join SwapACD. It is a site that follows the same principal as Paperback Swap except when you request a Cd it will cost you 1 credit and 49cents. It is well worth it since you can't buy a CD in a store for 49cents. Like Paperback Swap, you will receive 1 credit for your first 10 CDs that you post.

If watching movies is something you spend money on, try SwapaDVD. It is like Paperback Swap. To request a DVD it only cost 1 credit and they offer you a free credit for the first 10 DVDs you post to swap.

All of these sites have new items posted daily by its members. Each site has a "Wish List" you can create of items that you would like to receive. When an item that you have on that list is posted to swap it will automatically send it out to you if you have a credit available for it. If no credit is available in your account it will send you an email and you will be given a short time to get a credit to use for it. If for some reason you don't get a credit to put toward it, the item will remain on your wish list so that you will be in que for it again. You can, if you choose, purchase credits to add to your account inexpensively.

I have been a member of these for a little less than a year and have nothing but good things to say about them. I have not experienced any issues with any of my request that I have made for items. I would recommend this to anyone looking to save money but still be able to enjoy music, books, and movies. If any of you are already members leave a comment and tell others about your experience with these sites.
