Looking for books for fill out your classroom’s library??? We give teachers 10% off their classroom purchases of over $50, before taxes and after credits and 20% off their classroom purchases of over $100, before taxes and after credits.
Bringing in Books for Credit:
We give up to $1.50 in credit for current Mass Market Paperbacks, and up to $3.00 in credit for Trade Paperbacks (larger softcovers) and Hardcovers.
We check for condition, format and number of copies on hand. Generally we look for newer current books that are in very good condition (i.e. free of: rips, stains, cracked spines, water damage, mustiness, mildew or any bad odors). Please understand that we only take books we can use. This is a guideline and we may offer more or less for a book depending on its condition.
*** We ask that when you bring in large number of books, more than what fits in a plastic bag, for credit or cash, that you do not bring them in on Saturdays. Saturdays tend to busy, with most times only one salesperson working. Going through books takes time and causes backups. Should you have a large number of books, expect to be asked to label your bags or boxes with your name and number and leave them so that a staff can go through them during a slower time and get back to you. Thanks for your cooperation.
Using Your Book Credits:
When you are ready to purchase books you can apply up to fifty percent (50%) in book credits towards your purchase. For instance if your purchase comes to $50.00 before tax you can apply up to $25.00 in book credits. If you purchase $10.00 before tax you can apply up to $5.00 in book credits and so on. All unused book credits will be kept on file in our system to be used at another visit.
Book credits never expire and will remain on file in our system until fully used.
Note: Some Local & Collectible Books and any special sale items (like ‘Blind Dates’ or 10 for $10.00 discount books) may be exempt from Credit use
*Book Credits can only be used on Books. They cannot be used on baskets, bookmarks or tote bags. Blind Date books and 10 for $10.00 discounts are already set a specialty rate and are exempt from Credit use.
