Around Earth Day, we posted about thredUP, an online swapping community where thousands of moms swap kids clothes, toys and books online and how swapping can help you de-clutter by sending boxes
of stuff your kids no longer use to other moms for free.
Now, thredUP has expanded their swapping site to include books and has launched the nations first Online Summer Book Swap! This summer, exchange boxes of books online and receive recycling rewards in return.
How to Swap Books Online
The Online Summer Book Swap (June 15 – Aug 1) works just like thredUP’s traditional kids clothes swapping service and uses the same medium flat rate boxes. List your boxes of your kids’ old books on thredUP. When another mom picks your box, send it for free (she pays the shipping)! We’ll even mail you empty boxes, schedule home-pick & generate the shipping label.
When your book boxes are picked and reviewed by other families, you’ll receive a $25 credit towards BookSwim book rentals, 30% off a purchase at Chronicle Books with free shipping and 5 credits towards eBookFling to borrow eBooks through the Kindle and Nook 14-day lending feature.
For every box of books you send, you can pick another box on thredUP. Browse boxes of used books listed by other moms across the country, pick one you’d like to receive and pay only $5 + shipping. The box will be sent to your door!
Get those books together – and happy swapping!
