Buy Back Information

The Mitchell Community College Bookstore will buy book(s) back for the store only:

The Mitchell Community College Bookstore buys back books for retail at the end of the Fall and Spring Semester. 

Retail Buy Backs - When stock is needed for the Bookstore for the upcoming semester, the store pays a higher rate for these titles.  If the stock is not needed for the upcoming semester, the title may be a wholesale title.

In order to sell textbooks for wholesale pricing, you will need to click on the link at the bottom of this page:

Wholesale Buy Backs are when the supply and demand is needed on the wholesale title.  A value is deemed by the wholesale company not by the bookstore.   This value is completely controlled by the wholesale company.

All textbooks must be in good, resalable condition!  Textbooks with excess writing, highlighting, broken spines, missing pages, water damage, lab manuals, and workbooks cannot be purchased.  CD’s, disk, and unused access codes should be with the textbooks to increase the value.

Book ISBN numbers are to be entered in the search window after clicking the link below.  The wholesale buy back value will be displayed, if applicable, or if the textbook is needed.  Otherwise, the textbook(s) may display as “No current buy back price” which means the textbook(s) has no wholesale value and is not needed at this time.  MBS has a $10.00 minimum requirement for processing a transaction.  Qualification depends on the condition of each individual textbook(s) and the current market demand for the book title which changes daily.
