WHEN? The site will be open from June 1 through June 17. After June 17, the Brunswick site will be closed and buybacks will no longer be accepted. Please note that we are not accepting in-person buybacks at either Brunswick Bookstore this year.
HOW DOES IT WORK? We have set up a customized site with Valore which will provide pricing for those Middle School and Upper School books we wish to buy back. You need to create a simple account and enter each book’s ISBN number located on the back cover bottom right. (If you created an account last year, you may sign in to your existing account.) Valore will send you a prepaid shipping label and once your books are received in acceptable return condition, you will receive your funds via PayPal or check from Valore. Valore will then ship those books to us after the repurchase period has ended.
WHAT BOOKS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR BUYBACK? The list of titles we are buying back is attached below. As always, Valore cannot accept books in poor condition (broken spine, water damage, etc.) or which contain excessive writing or highlighting.
Note that students will also have the opportunity to sell back books which are NOT on the list below because other stores may be interested in buying them back. This is one of the biggest benefits of using the Valore market place to sell your books.
WHY ARE YOU USING VALORE THIS YEAR? This program was very successful the last two years and generated many more buybacks than we have received through in-person buybacks in the past. It also allows families to sell back books that are not on our buyback list.
WHAT ABOUT BOOKS THAT I BOUGHT AT GREENWICH ACADEMY? Greenwich Academy is also using Valore and you can check the following site to see if your GA course materials are eligible for buyback: greenwichacademy.valorebooks.com
