Textbook Buyback and Returns

Textbook Refund Policy

Full refund with your receipt for SUMMER term textbooks is the second day of classes. Full refund with your receipt for FALL AND SPRING term textbooks is the third day of classes. This applies to in store purchases AND online orders, regardless if you picked up your order or not.

With a valid sales receipt, textbooks (any item specifically requested by the professors for course use, even if not traditional book format, ie. clickers, calculators, lab supplies etc.) may be returned for a full refund within 3 days from the first day of classes for the Fall and Spring semesters (schedule of classes may be required) and by the second day of class for all summer semesters. Refunds will be made in the same manner as purchase. Books must be returned in the same condition as purchased with new books free of marking or damage to the cover. Diskette packs and shrink wrapped packages must be unopened. Defective books will be replaced if returned within the semester they were purchased.

We are unable to refund on the following items:
  • Study aids or test preps
  • Calculators, computer software or access codes that have been opened
  • Special orders of books or general merchandise
  • Textbooks purchased after the refund date

Textbook Buyback

Sell your textbooks to us no matter where you bought them. We match competitor's prices and you get cash on the spot!

Buyback Information

You can sell back books anytime during normal business hours. At the end-of-semester buyback (usually the last two weeks of the semester) we buy back for our own stock and we set the prices. During other times, we buy on behalf of a used textbook wholesale company and they set the prices we can pay. If possible, it is usually better to wait until the end of the semester to sell your books.
  • Your University of Memphis ID or driver's license is required to sell back textbooks and return rentals.
  • Books must be in reusable condition. We reserve the right to refuse to purchase a used book based on its condition.
  • Buyback operates on a first-come, first serve basis. The quantity being bought back is limited and may be reached at any time.
  • Buyback prices are subject to change without notice.
