Pricing Per Book

  • We will give 25% of the book's original publisher's price in store credit. Credit is tracked and kept on file. Credit never expires and has no cash value. 
  • Credit may be applied towards the purchase of used books at the rate of 1/2 credit, 1/2 cash or charge. 
  • For example: if a cover price is $8.00, the price in our store is $4.00, you may use $2.00 credit and $2.00 cash/credit card/debit card. 
  • Credit may not be applied to new books, special orders or other store merchandise. 
  • Our inventory software can remember what you have turned in for credit or purchased, preventing you from purchasing the same book twice.

WE DO NOT BUY BOOKS AND STORE CREDIT HAS NO CASH VALUE.
