You have a choice! This year you don’t need to be on campus to sell your textbooks. You can sell them online right now (shipping is FREE) or come into the VandalStore and get cash.

The VandalStore offers textbook buyback services at the end of each semester, paying top dollar for most used books. Because we get the faculty lists of course materials needed for the upcoming semester, we’re able to offer a high price for certain books toward the end of each term. Even if a book is not going to be used again at the University of Idaho, we are seeking books for other schools.

Textbook Buyback Options
Option A: In-Store Buyback
Come into the VandalStore and get cash. If you are in the Moscow-area, you can drop by the store during normal business hours and sell your books for cash at the buyback counter in the textbook area.
Option B: Online Buyback


If you are no longer in the Moscow-area, we have joined with Missouri Book Services (MBS) to offer online buyback services. You can sell your books online right now and ship them for free. To learn more, check out the video below or get started here.



Important Info: If you do plan on selling your textbooks online, please note:

  • Make sure the books you are selling are NOT rented textbooks. If you are unsure or have rented textbooks, click here.

  • This online buying service is managed by a third-party, MBS. If you have questions or need help with the online process please read the FAQS on the MBS portal page by clicking here.
