Amazon has released another one of its iOS apps specifically for college students, calling it Amazon Student. The purpose of the app is to allow students to trade in their used textbooks and other items such as DVDs, games, electronics, and more towards Amazon gift cards. A user simply scans the barcode on the item(s) they’d like to trade in and the app will calculate trade-in offers based on what they are and how much they’re worth.
Amazon even goes so far as to pay for the shipping by sending users a pre-paid shipping label for their items, and also offers free two-day shipping for six months to its users who join their Amazon Student program which includes Amazon Prime shipping benefits. The Amazon Student app is available for free on the App Store, and is definitely a worthy download for any college student with an iDevice.
