Ratings and Reviews
Love this app! I go out 2 or 3 times a week and scan used books at thrift stores, etc and have made enough money for a nice vacation! The app scans the book and then 10-20 different companies show the price they will pay. I pick the highest price, print off the free mailing label and box up the books. 2-3 weeks later I get a nice check in the mail. Now I am getting 5-10 checks a week. Takes a little time and work but a great part-time job working as my own boss and own hours! The app used to have problems but lately it’s working fine.
This app is great for getting the most money possible for your used textbooks!
I think the problems most people are upset with in the reviews has to do with the book buyers that BookScouter connects you with. You have to really look at that individual buyers requirements, some are more strict about the condition of the book than others.
It's okay but could be better
I like the feature of adding books to my bookshelf after scanning their barcode but sometimes the app crashes when I try to do this. If this gets fixed, I'd use it more often.
