This company boasts an enormous inventory of used textbooks and a buyback policy that promises at least half of what you paid and an extra 10 percent to customers who bought the book from the site. For the most part, students consider this a dependable online vendor.
When it comes to buying and selling college texts, Textbooks.com reviews indicate that students find this online vendor offers some of the better deals going. Several Textbooks.com reviews on the site's Facebook page note that customers saved a bunch of money by ordering books from this site, and some say Facebook is the best way to get help from customer service. And while Textbook.com reviews at Epinions are generally positive, especially regarding cheap prices, users' assessments of customer service are mixed: some Textbook.com reviews talk up the quick shipping and responsive customer representatives and others report refusals to credit accounts for books that never arrived, squabbles over the condition of a returned rental book and over book buybacks, disagreement over whether a book was actually returned, and the like. Many of the questionable practices seem associated with books purchased through the marketplace, where third party sellers offload used books and Textbooks.com has little control. Feedback from customers that was collected by Shopping.com and posted at Epinions generally say Textbooks.com delivers value in the form of modest pricing, used and rental books in good condition, and on-time shipping.
Type in identifying information (e.g., ISBN number, title, author) of a book you need and Textbooks.com offers several ways to obtain it -- buy used, buy new, rent for one semester (125 days), or buy from the marketplace. The site notes that if you rent a book, access codes and other supplemental materials might not be included. You will also learn right off the bat how much money you'll get for the book if you buy it now and sell it back when the semester is over, but you'll be docked if you return it without the supplements. Outbound shipping on orders from Textbooks.com (as opposed to marketplace sellers) that exceed $25 is free, as is return shipping on textbook rentals. And, there's a 30-day refund period if you drop a class (shipping costs are not covered when you send back the book). You can track your order online and refer to a help section with FAQs and information on policies and practices.
