Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your books at Buyback:

  • Take good care of your books.   Damage, heavy wear or excessive marking can make your books unsalable.
  • Don’t discard any reusable items, such as CDs or workbooks that have not been written in.
  • If you have a workbook, copy the pages you have to write on so the book remains free of writing.
  • Don’t wait too long to sell.  Bookstores may have already reached their buy back limits.
  • Newer editions are more in demand.   Older editions already have a lot of used copies in circulation.
  • Editions two or three years old may be on the verge of being replaced by new editions.
  • Keep your books secure.  Theft of textbooks is on the rise nationwide.  Thieves target books to sell at buyback.
