Cash4Books *UPDATE*

I wanted to update y’all on my first experience with Cash4Books..  After getting an email confirmation that they’ve processed my books, and have mailed out my check, I learned that they did NOT except 3 of my 15 books, notingWater or moisture damage.”  Two of the books were quoted at over $10 each, one for 50 cents.  Thus, this Frugal Mom was a bit concerned.

I promptly called the 800 number listed on the email, and inquired about the water or moisture damage.  I was told that it could be a very simple water stain, that they are very picky about the books they accept.  I know for certain that those books were in great shape when I sent them off, but perhaps may have had slight moisture.  Still, I was upset that I didn’t get the full quoted value of over $60.  After all, this Frugal Mom wants her money!

(Side note: they spell out their policy for books they accept, I will create a separate post immediately following this one.)


However, the lady I spoke with was rather nice about the ordeal.  First, she checked the box that the books came in.  (They photograph each box, to note if there was any damage upon receiving shipments.)  Since no damage was noted, she offered to ship the books back to me for free.  This was a “one time offer” since it was my first time working with Cash4Books.  (Normally, you would be charged to have books shipped back to you.)


I’d rather have the $20, but I’ll take the books back.  Perhaps I can sell them on amazon or else where?  In any case, if I can’t have the cash quoted, I’d rather have the books back.


Overall, I’m still rather pleased with my experience thus far.  I opted to have a check sent by snail mail, instead of instant payment via PayPal.  That was a personal choice, which made sense for me.

In any case, remember: if you’re looking for a way to de-clutter, AND get paid for your books, I do still recommend you check out Cash4Books — shipping is free, you’ll get instant quotes for your books, and you get paid quickly with PayPal, or you can opt for a check in the mail.  Word to the wise: you’ll need to have the book(s) handy, as you’ll enter the ISBN to get a price quote.

If you don’t like the quote for a book here, try donating to Goodwill or another worthy cause, or enter it at PaperBack Swap.  Or, if you’re in the Athens area, try Avid Bookshop!
