I am this close to talking my wife into getting a Droid 3 from Verizon, since they are BOGO. If I do, though, I want to be able to sell my Droid 2 Global to offset the cost. I'm jut throwing this out there, but would anyone be interested if I sold it? It's already rooted.
Late to the party, I know, but I was sent this website a few weeks ago: www.chegg.com . Rent textbooks and send them back on the cheap. I haven't used it yet, so I can't say not-scam for sure, but it looks professional.
What info do they ask for during the sign-up process?
Name, address, e-mail address, phone number. And then, of course, when you want to fund the account or transfer money to your account, you'll need to put in banking info. Otherwise from that, they didn't ask for any serious info.
I'm not selling anything, technically, but hear me out.
I don't know whether or not anyone would be interested in this, but a friend of mine, more the wife of a friend, turned me on to a couple of rather neat "Internet trading" sites. They work differently, so I will describe them separately, but in essence if you have clutter (as I do) you can get rid of it and acquire other people's clutter that you'd rather have. You have to pay to ship your stuff out, tends to be between $2 and $4 an item depending (hardback books cost more), but even that's cheaper than buying the same stuff on eBay generally.
*PaperbackSwap - PaperbackSwap (and it's sister sites DVDSwap and SwapACD) lets you list all those books on your bookshelf you have no intention of reading (or watching, or that you copied and can be rid of the hard copy ) and, as people come by and decide they want said item, you mail it out to them. For every item someone requests from your list and you mail out you get to chose an item from the database of items other peoples posted items. You also get two free books for the first ten you post or can buy "credits" for $3.45, about the price of mailing a hardcover I guess.
*SwapTree - With SwapTree you trade with specific people. You set up your list of things you're willing to part with (this one deals in books, DVDs, CDs, and Games on one list) and a second list of things you want. The system then compares your want list with other peoples have list and when it has matches it presents them to you and you can decide if you'd like to initiate a trade or not. The very neat thing about this site is their "three way trades" where you (A) can send something to someone (B) who sends something to yet another person (C) who sends an item to you (A). I didn't even realize my second swap was one of those until later. Of course other people send you trades as well--only for things on your list--and you can accept or cancel them.
I was reluctant to do it when I was first told about it, but I listed some stuff on SwapTree that I literally (in the non Gorilla Monsoon sense of the word) forgot I had because they'd been sitting in boxes and actually found some good matches.
If anyone does join PaperbackSwap, my username is bdbdbd and I would appreciate the referral. Though I'm not sure if it gets you anything.
Alright, so who else is with me? Just a clarification, this whole entire process is FREE, and doesn't require any personal info entry or credit card bullshit. So for you not to go over and at least sign up will be a personal AFFRONT to me! :-D
And once I reach my goal of 10 people, I'll turn it over to Solly or someone else to start sponsoring the rest of you!
Kids crashed their computer (e machine). Not needing anything extravagant. Couldnt tell you what kind of processor or memory it had.. it was the wife's before we married and is almost 3 years old.. anyone with something reliable to sell, leave me a message.
I guess this is as good a place as any for this. I thought it might be helpful for some of you out there.
For the past week or so, I've been getting a weird Las Vegas phone number on my caller ID on my office phone. I don't answer any numbers I don't know, so I have been just letting it ring. The caller never leaves a message, so I decided to try to find out where it was from. Reverse lookup online didn't yield anything, but I came across this site.
It's basically a message board for numbers just like this one. If you get a call from an unknown number, and you can't find out where it's from, you can enter it in the search box at the top and see if anyone else had any calls from the same number.
Turns out the one I was getting was from Hilton Vacations. It also made me remember to put my office phone in the Do Not Call registry.
