Cash4Books Visa Gift Card

We’ve all been there…

  • the short buyback window
  • the long lines
  • the crushing disappointment

We’d love to hear why you left behind the campus bookstore and now sell to Cash4Books. Your frustration could even net you a little cash! Share your unique story with us for the chance to win a $200 Visa Gift Card.

In your story, please be sure to:

Tell Us About Yourself.

How old are you? What are you going to school for? Do you have any kids? What are your hobbies and interests?

Let Us Know Why The Other Guys Didn’t Cut It.

What happened when you tried selling back your books at your campus bookstore? What are the reasons that you decided not to sell your books to them? Or, if not your campus bookstore, did you try to sell your textbooks somewhere else and have a frustrating experience?

Describe Why You Use Cash4Books.

How did you discover Cash4Books? What are the reasons that you use Cash4Books? What features of Cash4Books do you enjoy? Do you continue to use us when selling back your textbooks?

Be creative, but don’t feel the need to delve into the realm of fiction. We want the true tale!
