    Default Textbook buyers?

    Anyone know of a legit company that buys textbooks from students? I have some expensive college textbooks that no one seems to buy from me off eBay without me getting absolutely ripped off, but I was wondering if some websites/companies buy these textbooks from you to sell themselves. If any of you guys know of any LEGIT ones, much love for pointing me in the right direction.

    A lot of book store websites will buy used books, I know the Barnes & Noble site here buys used textbooks. Could try Amazon too I guess?

    I just find clueless frosh on campus to rip off. They're most vulnerable when they're all lining up at the campus bookstore during the first week of classes.

    I'd look for some local websites related to your university/college. For example, we have www.tusbe.com where the GTA universities exchange books.

    Check the prices on Amazon. There sometimes isn't a huge gap between used and new.
    Don't forget ship as media mail.

    I guess advertising on University Facebook groups is a good way to get a decent amount of money off of your books. That'd involve you having to meet up with students, and I don't know if you'd be willing to do that (like if schools are far from you or something).

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. Only reason I don't like Amazon is I am pretty sure they charge a listing price, but definitely gonna check out if my B&N will buy my books.
