TEXTBOOKS: THE ART OF BUYING AND SELLING

TLDR: this is a story about how I am dumb and bought the wrong books, but was able to make some money back using booksrun. In addition, I can make even more money by selling back old undergrad textbooks. Check them out! https://booksrun.com/?afk=3356

Have you ever wasted $100 … what about $200? Well I have. Not once, but TWICE now I have bought the wrong books for Law School and I have only been here for 4 days. Sad I know.

The first time was not my fault I swear. I ordered a book through Amazon for my Civil Procedure course, I saw that the paperback version of the text was phenomenally, I’m talking over $100, cheaper so I decided to buy that (as any savvy student would do). I didn’t notice until I tried to read the text that it was actually the supplement and not the casebook. Luckily Amazon took the book back no questions asked and I had to fork over $160 for the correct book.

My trouble doesn’t end there, no no no. I was doing my Lawyering/Writing and Research class assignment and noticed the exercise from the text I was doing did not match my friends. After a few minutes we figured out I had bought the 6th edition of the book, but we needed the 4th edition. This book cost me $100 on Amazon and came with a code to unlock the ebook. Because I had already used the code, there was no returning it. Crushed, I looked up the price of the correct book and it was MORE expensive! WHY! After a night of frustration over losing $100 on a useless book, I stumbled upon booksrun.com.

Booksrun has the best buyback prices and could not be easier. I simply typed in my textbook, selected the condition (I used “very good” because I had used the code it was no longer “new”), and press SELL. They give you a slip to print out, tape to a box with your book inside, and drop it off at the post office. I managed to get $50 for the book. While half the value may seem like a bad deal. Other sell back sites like Amazon were only offering me $4. Chegg offered $15. This was the best deal and I ran with it. If you or anyone you know needs to sell a textbook, I recommend booksrun.
