Share Article

With television in repeat mode, now is a good time to stock up on some "strike-proof" entertainment, by using Swaptree.com to get free books, CDs, DVDs and video games.

Swaptree.com (http://www.swaptree.com), the innovative website that allows users to trade books, CDs, DVDs and video games with other users for free, encourages all television viewers affected by the writers strike, to logon to Swaptree and fill the void by trading for some "strike-proof" media.

"If your weekly dose of "Scrubs" or "The Simpsons" had been preventing you from reading "Freakonomics", watching all of the "Godfather" movies, or diving into some new blues CDs, Swaptree is a great place to get the books, CDs, DVDs and video games you want for free," said Mark Hexamer, Vice President of Marketing for Swaptree.

As an example, Hexamer explained how if a user has the "The Office - Season One" on DVD, and listed it for trade on Swaptree, they would be able to choose from over 17,000 DVDs, CDs, video games and books that they could receive in trade for it. "So if you have the first season of a show on DVD, you can swap it for the second season, or a new show altogether" suggested Hexamer. "By the time the strike is over you could be caught up on the story lines for a bunch of shows and be ready for some new episodes."

To use Swaptree, users simply list the items that they have to trade and the items that they want to receive and Swaptree's two- and three-way trade algorithms instantly show the user all of the items that they can receive for the items that they have.

The service is completely free, and users only pay for the shipping of their item. Swaptree also simplifies the mailing process by allowing users to print a postage label on their regular printer, which means that users don't have to weigh items, worry about stamps or even go to the post office. And of course, in addition to saving money, users who are trying to be more environmentally conscious appreciate the fact that Swaptree reduces consumption by promoting sharing and recycling.
