Buy Back Services

The General Bookstore buys your unwanted textbooks YEAR-ROUND.

We DO NOT do buy back services over the phone. The textbook must be brought into the store and observed by an employee.

You must present a drivers license or student I.D. in order to receive money back for your textbooks.

We buy back every day that we are open; however, the best time to sell back your books is during Finals Week.

It makes no difference where your books were purchased from or whether you bought them NEW or USED.

Books must be in good reasonable condition. This includes the text to have the covers, pages and binding intact and with software if applicable.

We do buy back SOME looseleaf text.

There are many factors that affect the purchase price, such as:

  • If the book is being used for the following semester.
  • How many copies of that specific textbook that we already have.
  • If they are publishing a new edition of the textbook.
  • If there is national demand for the textbook.
Price values tend to fluctuate frequently over time; no price value is permanent.
