Used Book Trade in Policy
BOOKSHOP BENICIA USED BOOK TRADE-IN POLICY
Used books, CDs and DVDs in very good condition may be traded in for credit for
other used book or audio. We do not pay cash.
Used book credit may only be used towards the purchase of other used items and cannot be
used for new items.
For the books that we accept, you may receive up to 25% of the publisher's list price (if a
hardcover book is now in paperback, it will be valued at the paperback price) for
trade-in credit depending on condition. Trade-In credit on CDs and DVDs vary. You can use
the credit towards purchasing other used books but you will still be responsible for sales tax.
We will hold your credit here at the store and update it as you make purchases Please bring in
no more than 30 books at a time. We can't always examine them for trade-In right away but
will try to get back to you quickly. Please let the clerk know If you want any rejected books
back or If you just want to donate them to our $1.00 cart. We have the right to refuse any book
for trade credit at any time.
