What is Guaranteed Buyback?

Guaranteed Buyback (GBB) is a great way to know how much cash you can get at the end of the semester when you sell your book back to us. GBB books are marked “Guaranteed Buyback” on the product page and throughout the checkout process. You’ll see your Guaranteed Buyback price, which lets you know upfront exactly how much you can get back (provided you return the book on time and in good condition). Once you’ve purchased a Guaranteed Buyback item, you can visit your account to view the return date and value details in your order history.

Once your course has ended, you can submit your book for buyback by going to “Sell Your Textbooks” from the main menu and accepting the Guaranteed Buyback value. From there, it works just like a regular buyback – you’ll print out your packing slip and free UPS shipping label, pack your books, and drop your package at any UPS location. Once your item is reviewed and processed, we’ll pay you via PayPal or check, your choice.

A few things to note: Guaranteed Buyback values expire 14 days after your course end date and books must be returned in good condition, with all required components. Guaranteed Buyback quotes are conditional based on the school/institution using BNC as their sole source of course materials distribution for the next academic term or school year.
