Here's a way to get some extra spending money for holiday shopping: Did you know Amazon has a trade-in program?
You can trade in electronics, books, video games, DVDs, textbooks and now even e-readers.
Trading in a Kindle can net you anywhere from $25 to $135 depending on the model and condition.
To use Amazon's trade-in program - all you have to do is search for the item you have to trade-in, see how much Amazon is offering for it, then send the item in. Amazon offers FREE shipping and if it's approved you'll get an Amazon gift card for the listed trade-in value.
The amount will automatically appear in your Amazon.com account within 2 business days after Amazon gets your trade-in.
Not bad, right?
Tere's another way you can earn gift cards: CVS has a way you can earn FREE gift cards.
Through Christmas, if you're an ExtraCare Rewards member and spend $30 on products marked as part of the "earn Free Gift Cards promotion" you can earn $10 gift cards to Macy's, Gap, Applebee's, Shell stations, American Express and Barnes and Noble.
Products included in the promotion will change each week, so you can earn multiple gift cards. Every time you spend $30, you get another one.
