Students have the opportunity to receive cash on the spot through Dec. 14 for selling used textbooks at the Colorado State University Bookstore.
Those who participated in last year’s book buyback saw on average $168 exchange rate – a denomination that could mean making rent, buying the perfect holiday present, or just starting the New Year off that much richer.
Other venues will allow students to sell back books, but the advantages of the CSU Bookstore Buyback seem to outweigh the competition, said John Parry, director of the CSU Bookstore.
“We accept more books for CSU classes, we have more locations and we pay the highest price,” said Parry.
Value of a particular book is dependent upon the CSU Bookstore’s inventory of that book.
The bookstore will not accept any books that have water damage, extensive writing inside, binding damage, missing pages or pieces if the book was not adopted by a teacher for the next semester.
Four buyback locations are spread out around campus for student convenience, with the primary site at the lower level of the CSU Bookstore.
“Students want to find the windows in the main hallway of the bottom level of the Lory Student Center, which connects the Transit Center to the Sunken Lounge,” said Davis Church, an employee of the CSU Bookstore and a senior civil engineering major.
The other three locations include a trailer between the Clark C building and Eddy, a spot inside Academic Village and a drive-thru location in the Moby Parking lot.
