Guaranteed Buyback Fall 2022

It’s as easy as 1 – 2 – 3!

  1. Look for the GBB logo in the booklist online and also in-store. If you see it on your textbook, we guarantee to buy it back at the end of the term!
  2. Buy the book, use it for the term in your course.
  3. Bring your book back to the store during the refund period and we’ll pay you the guaranteed buyback amount.
  • Fall 2022 - bring your books between December 9th and 22nd, 2022.

What is Guaranteed Buyback (GBB) and how does it work?

At the start of the term, look for books on our GBB list for a guaranteed rebate to be paid to you at the end of the term. It works like renting books but in reverse! You can use the book up until the end of term and return it to us to get your money.

As you search for your courses, keep an eye out for the GBB logo and the buyback amount in your course listing. You can also check out the full list of GBB titles on the Campus Store website. Bring the book back to the store during the GBB refund period noted above to receive your buyback amount. We will credit the amount to the card of your choice (credit card, debit card, Campus Store gift card or student card).

Buyback amounts vary based on the demand for the book in the market. The market dictates which books are in demand and the amount we can offer to pay. Each term, we do our best to pay you as much as we can, and to add as many books as possible to our GBB list. You don't have to have purchased the book in the GBB term. If you have the exact same book from a previous term (same edition and format), it's still eligible for the buyback amount.

We know that you've used the book during the term for your course, so some wear and minimal writing/highlighting is fine. But, please be mindful that we will assess the condition of the book before we agree to buy it back. Books must be in a re-saleable condition; that means no missing pages, covers, obvious damage or excessive writing/highlighting.

How do I know if my book is on the Guaranteed Buyback (GBB) list?

We’ve got you covered!

  1. Look for your course in the booklist textbooks.mcmaster.ca, if your textbook is on the GBB list this term, you’ll see the information displayed there.
  2. You can also check the full list of GBB books by term.
  3. If you are shopping in-store, look out for shelf signs and stickers on books to let you know which textbooks on this term’s GBB list.
  4. After your purchase is complete (online or in-store) if your book is on the GBB list it will display on your receipt.
