Swaptree… the update.

I posted a few weeks back about trying a swapping website I stumbled across called Swaptree.  I have been very pleased with the results!  In college my husband, Kirk, purchased a lot of DVDs.  Actually, to say a lot is an understatement.  He had, when he still had his whole collection, over 400 DVDs.  When we got married and started to try and find places for all of these DVDs that we don’t watch, we both agreed something had to be done.  When we bought our new home and moved we had a yard sale that got rid of about 35 of them but we needed another solution.  So he went through the collection and picked out DVDs he could part with (about 100 of them) and we posted them on Swaptree

This is how it works and is taken directly from Swaptree’s website.

You list the books, CDs, DVDs, and video games that you want to trade and the books, CDs, DVDs and video games that you want to receive and swaptree does the rest.

Swaptree will show you all of the items that you can receive for your items. Clicking on a “GET NOW” link next to an item will show more information about both the item and the trader you will be receiving the item from.

Once the other traders accept, the trade is complete and you will then be provided the shipping address where you need to ship your item.”

So far Kirk and I have initiated 24 swaps and we have yet to have any major issues related to the site.  Items arrive promptly and how they are described.  To say the least, Kirk and I are a bit addicted.  The only issue arose when Kirk decided to post something as “very good” when there were some major obvious scratches on the disk.  But the person we were trading with was highly understanding and we were able to resolve the problem without major issue. 

In any case, try it out and see what you can get for your old stuff that’s laying around.
