Q: How are cash for books prices determined?
A: When we know the instructor plans to use the book next semester, and we don't already have enough on hand, we will pay a premium price up to the quantity we need., even when there is no national wholesale price for a book, which usually happens with old editions and custom books, The Co-op Store will often still buy back old editions that have been re-ordered by faculty for the next term. Old editions do not generally have as great a buyback value as current editions.
Q: How will I know when Cash for Books is scheduled?
A: Cash for Books dates and times are posted on our website, , as well as our Facebook page, . Cash for Books posters with dates and times will be posted around campus in the weeks leading up to buyback.

Q: What if the book isn't being used at IUP next semester?
A: When a title isn't being used on our campus next semester, or if we already have enough copies, it is sold to a national used book wholesaler as a convenience to students. We're now partnering with 7 different vendors instead of just one to get you the MOST cash for your books!
Q: How can this book be worthless when I paid a lot for it three months ago?
A: Books that go out of print no longer have any market value. We can only buy back books that we will be able to sell, either here in the store next term or to a wholesaler. Even when there is no national wholesale price for a book, which happens with old editions, The Co-op Store will often still buy back old editions that have been re-ordered by faculty for the next term. Old editions do not generally have as great a buyback value as current editions.
A: Cash for Books, or Buyback, is an opportunity to sell your unwanted textbooks for cash.
The IUP Co-op Store holds a major buyback at the end of each Fall and Spring semester.
