Used BooksBook Buyback

When you sell back your used textbooks, you can earn up to 50% back* on your old textbooks (*depending on the condition of the book and if your textbook has been reordered by faculty for the next term). Bring in all books, no matter where they were purchased! Student ID required.

The Bookstore only buys back textbooks that are being used for winter term at Dalhousie and generally offers 50% of the original retail price. We do work with MBS, a wholesale partner who buys books for all over North America, and they base their prices on the demand for the book. If demand is high, prices will be higher. MBS typically offers less than 50%. 

Stay tuned for information and dates on our April buyback. Subscribe to our Bookstore Buzz or follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to be notified!
