I have got about 100 VHSs. I am thinking of offering 1 free for every book.  Or something like that.

I will have to list them and I am wondering if it is worth the trouble.

Has anyone else gotten increased orders when they have offered a free VHS along with the deal?

I would appreciate your input.

I think so, and I know I've ordered from people who had books on my reminder list who also offered video tapes.  100 tapes would be a lot to list, so maybe you would only want to do 25 at a time and see how that does.  I look forward to seeing your list.

OK, I will give it a try later today. Probably on another post.

Continued input here would be appreciated.

I am very lazy.            lol

I do not want to post VHSs and not have anyone take them.

There is a VHS bazaar on Swap a DVD.  The going rate seems to be 4 for 1 credit.

oooh! Then you can swap the dvd credits for book credits. I think 2 dvd credits = 3 book credits!
