What is The Campus Store doing to keep prices down?
Course material costs can add up quickly, which is why The Campus Store offers the used book alternative! Used books can save a student 25% of the cost of a new book and used books are GST exempt!
How do you sell used books back?
The Campus Store buys back textboks year-round, however, during the following used buyback periods you will get the best value for your books:
- 2020 Spring: TBD
- 2020 Fall: Monday, June 29 - Friday, September 18, 2020
- 2021 Winter: Monday, November 30 - Friday, January 15, 2021
During these buyback periods, you may receive up to 50% of the current new selling price for your book, even if you purchased it used.
Why sell during a buyback period and not just during the year?
During the buyback period, The Campus Store is purchasing used books that will be sold as used books in the upcoming term. This allows them to give you the best value for your book at that time.
How can I tell if I have purchased a used book in-store or online?
Used books, when available, can be located with the new copies on our shelves, with the course(s) for which they are required or suggested. Used copies are clearly labeled with a yellow "USED" sticker on the spine. Used books can also be found by logging into your custom Booklist
Note: Used book buybacks are temporarily suspended until further notice. Hold onto your your used books though, we may want them when buybacks resume.
