I sold them a textbook that was in pristine condition. They said that because it had very limited highlighting, it was worth $8 instead of $20 (even though it's a very highly valued textbook!) That's nonsense--I have sold many textbooks, and I know that if it has limited highlighting, it won't lower the value to buyers. They gave me the option of paying $9 to return it to them, but they valued the book at $8, so they tried to paint me into a corner but I'm not buying it. I had *many* other options for selling that textbook to toher venodors, so I will ask for my book back AND I will tell everyone I know--don't send them your textbook b/c they are CHEAPSKATES and they don't know the actual value of a used textbook. You shouldn't do business with them. Save yourself the same lesson--just don't send them your textbook!

Tip for consumers:
Don't trust their quote. My $20 buyback turned outto be an $8 buyback. I f I didn't want to sell to them it cost me $9 to return the book. If you're thinking of selling your textbook to them, don't do it!

Products used:
Tried to sell them a textbook. That went very badly and I will never do that again.
