Frequently Asked Questions

What are your hours of operation?

We're open Monday - Friday 9 am - 6:00 pm. 
We are also open additional hours during the first weeks of class, call us or check our about page for details.

How do I find a book?

If you go to Utah Valley University (UVU), just bring in your schedule! If you don't go to UVU, bring in either:

  1. The title, author, and edition
  2. The ISBN # (located on the back of the book near the barcode, or on the title page)

Can I sell my book at your store?

We normally accept current college textbooks, but we'll buy any book we can. Generally, we can't buy textbooks older than 3 years, paperback novels, magazines, or comic book collections. However, we are happy to look up anything you want to bring in.

How much will I get for my books?

The price we can pay can vary a lot. The amount of money you will get for your book(s) varies proportionately with the condition of the book, the edition, publication date, publisher prices, etc... So, stop by and we will tell you exactly how much you'll get for your book(s)!

How do I return books I have purchased?

Return policy is flexibly based on class schedules, giving you time to talk to your professor. Undergrad Fall/Spring semester and MBA students have two (2) weeks from the FIRST day (*not first day attended*) of class to return books for a full refund. Summer semester students have 1 week from the first day of class to return their books.

If the book is bought mid-semester, students have two (2) days to return their book from the day purchased.

You must have the receipt to return the book and it must be in the same condition it was bought. (New =Unopened!)

Can I get a discount on books?

That depends on who you are.

Just kidding. The best way to do this is to bring in your books from the previous semester and trade them in. You will get 25% more in credit than you would in cash and can use that for your purchases and rentals through our unmatched in-store credit "Book Bucks" program.
