Save Money By Swapping, Renting Or Sharing Online

The 33 News (TV) - 3/4/2009 by Pelpina Trip
In these difficult economic times, some websites are doing extremely well Ė because they help people to save money. Here are some websites that help you swap, rent, or share things online.

Swap-a-DVD connects people that want to trade DVDís by mail. And here's how it works. Everyone lists ten DVD's they own and they're willing to trade.The website gives them a credit, which they can use to request any DVD on the website.

Paperbackswap is kind of the same formula, except that this website is for books. Every book costs one credit. And every time you send a book to someone else, you receive a credit. It's easy, and it can save you a lot of money if you like to read.
