About Bookbyte


Since 1999, Bookbyte has provided college students with an inexpensive way to buy used textbooks. We later expanded to also offer options for renting college textbooks and selling books for cash (not store credit, like other sites). We are currently the only college book retailer on the web to offer a 10% cash rebate on the return of all textbook rentals. We pride ourselves on our service, so please let us know if there’s anything we can do to make buying, renting, or selling your textbooks easier.

Our goal in business is to make access to education a little easier and a little cheaper for all types of students.
