Textbook Buyback Option

Our Online Buyback Program offers students a great convenience. No need to adhere to buyback time constraints—students sell back course materials on their own time.



Step 1: Click the button above access our online bookstore. Click the “Sell My Books” tab and login with your user name and password. A buyback price quote is automatically generated based on the your recently purchased textbooks. The quote displays which books have buyback value and how much money you can expect to earn from those books. You may select which titles you wish to sell and may include additional books (even in not purchased from MBS) by inserting the ISBN.

Step 2: After the quote is finalized, you are provided with a postage paid UPS shipping label addressed to MBS.

Step 3: Ship your books to MBS. We will send an email notifying you that we received your books. Books sent to MBS are graded for quality based on the information provided in the quote process. Books will have buyback value only if they are in good condition, allowing for normal wear and tear.

Step 4: Assuming all books meet our standards of quality, we mail you a check at the quoted amount. If for some reason books do not meet our minimum standards of quality, you will be notified via email. You have the option to have these materials sent back to you at your expense.
