We all know sharing is caring and we all love free stuff, so the idea behind Swap Tree seems too good to be true.
The site offers a place where you can trade media - be it books, music, DVDs or video games - for other items you want. The service is entirely free of charge, you just list the item you want to trade, wait as Swaptree's algorithms calculating what you're eligible to receive then choose your item. You are then given the choice to print your postage directly from your browser.
The fact that you don't have to make a separate trip to the post office to get postage makes the Swap Tree service easier than eBay or Craigslist and the fact that there is no money exchanged makes the entire process less sketchy. You'll need the UPC or ISBN code that is on the back of every CD, book, video game and DVD so your item can't be all beat up.
