PaperBackSwap.com Feedback

Well, I posted two books a few days ago, and I've already had people request them! Wow! That was very quick. I'm planning on mailing them tomorrow, so I printed out the shipping information. The most I paid for shipping a hardback was $2.76 (media mail). I need to find more books to list!

Remember, the more books you mail out, the more you can request. This is fun!

Save Yourself Account - Suze Orman

In April, I opted to open a money market account through TD AMERITRADE.

I had visited Suze Orman's website, and she offered a deal where you deposit $50 a month for a year, and you will receive $100. I thought, hey - FREE money!

You can find more information at the following website: www.saveyourself.com

Not only will your cash deposits be FDIC-insured, you can also take advantage of the $100 bonus from TD AMERITRADE. You can also set up direct deposit to the account, so you will never forget!

Click HERE to visit PaperBackSwap.com.

This website allows you to post books that you would like to "swap" with other club members (not just with one person).
The cost of the swap? About $3 for postage.
They also have Swap sites for CDs and DVDs. I recently signed up for the site, and posted 2 books (we got rid of a bunch of books before the big move - argh!). But, there are several books I saw that I would like to swap for. If the book you want is not available, you can still put it on a wish list, so if it does get posted, you will be notified. Pretty cool!

Since moving to a more metropolitan area (I suppose that is what you would call Norfolk...), I have purchased these books every year. They pay for themselves very quickly. The Norfolk version has many automotive coupons to help with those oil changes, hundreds of restaurant coupons (mostly B1G1), and coupons for local and internet shops.

I won two free tickets to the movie "The Women"! It's hasn't gotten great reviews, but since the tickets are free, I'll probably go...ha!

So, now I've won a total of four sweepstakes:
A free Dole salad, two pairs of Hanes underware (very comfy), and free movie tickets.
Let's see how you do!
