Book Buyback

We are not buying textbooks back in store at this time. The next buyback session will be offered from Wednesday, August 11, 2021 - Saturday, September 11, 2021.

Buyback Guidelines

  1. Books do not have to be purchased from U of MN Bookstores to be eligible for buyback.
  2. Only sell purchased books -- do not sell rentals.
  3. When selling back in store, we will evaluate your books for damage and use before offering a final price.
  4. Buyback pricing information will not be provided via phone or email, because it is subject to change. You must bring your books in store or use one of our virtual buyback programs to find the value of your books at the time you are ready to sell them.
