At the OTC Bookstore, we buy back books almost every day! You don't have to be a student to sell your book back to us. We also buy your books back no matter where you bought them or where you used them.

During our regular daily (non-peak) buyback, we ask that you bring your SmartCard or State ID.

Book totals of $10+ in-store will receive a check through the mail. No cash will be dispensed at time of BuyBack.

Summer 2020 Peak Buyback Dates TBA

When will I get a response to my quote?

We process quotes every weekday as quickly and accurately was possible. We will email you as soon as we have your quote ready and provide you with the next steps available. This process takes less than 24 hours during business days. Please refrain from sending emails about your quote - we will reach out to you as soon as we can.

When is the best time to sell back?

The OTC Bookstore buys books year round based on national fair market value, but the last two weeks of the fall and spring semester and the last week of the summer semester we offer the best money for your books. This is our peak period when we are buying both for our store and for the national market.
