It's back to school with the Amazon Student app. Now college students can quickly search, purchase and trade-in new and used books including DVDs, video games and other electronics.

Amazon has released the Amazon Student app that is specifically designed for college students who are looking to purchase or trade-in their used textbooks. The Amazon Student app includes a built-in barcode scanner that allows the user to quickly compare prices and search for titles, including video games, DVDs, CDs and other electronics.

The trade-in feature is an extension of Amazon’s Textbook Buyback program. College students can also earn complimentary two-day shipping for six months with Amazon Prime shipping benefits. In return for trading in your books, users will receive Amazon gift cards to spend online.
