How to Make Money at Dollar Stores and Yard, Estate & Book Sales?

Fall 2017 Update:

Still a Great way to Pick up Some Extra Cash!

How to make even more money with using Bookscouter!

If you love scoring good deals, going to dollar stores or yard, estate or even book sales, having this tool may help you to make some additional money quite easily.

Here’s what to do, step by step:

  1. Click here and scroll down to the box on the right hand side that says “Mobile Apps.”
  2. Follow the link and choose one of the following apps: Apple IOS, Android or Bookscouter Mobile.
  3. Once you have the app downloaded, you now have the ability to scan barcodes of books that you see on the fly.
  4. I can't help to whip out my phone in the dollar store and I've scored quite a few gems.

Even if I find a book that costs $1 and I can get a scan for $2 or more. I'll buy the book because I am doubling my money so it’s worth picking up, considering that the book buyers pay all of the shipping fees.

One thing to note is that book buyers often will have a $5 or $10 minimum, so keep this in mind, when picking up books. I’ve found it pretty easy to make the minimum requirement because most books that are being bought are often being sought by more than one buyer.

TIP: Sometimes, I’ll sell a book for a little cheaper to make sure I hit the minimum requirements of a particular book buyer. I still score because I am making more that I bought or picked up the book for.

TIP: I have bought books at yard sales for a little as 30 cents. Don't be afraid to ask the buyer if there're willing to sell you 2 , 3 or 4 books for a $1. Oftentimes, they really want to get rid of the stuff! What a great score for us!
