Buying and selling textbooks is quite possibly the bane of every college student’s existence (after midterms and finals, of course). When buying books, they’re expensive. When selling, they’re cheap. In addition to the financial stresses of each book, one usually has to walk across campus with a heavy pack full of a semester’s worth of books in order to get rid of them. It’s an added stressor to the hassle of selling your books, and there should be an easier way to do it.
TextbookRush fulfills this need by providing a fast, easy, and secure way to buy, sell, and rent textbooks, movies, video games, and electronics online. If that’s more than what you’re looking for, you can simplify things further and sell your textbooks via their dedicated smartphone app. For further clarification, the app is for selling your books only and the online store is for buying, renting, selling, and more.
Basically, TextbookRush deals with everything a college student needs outside of a fully stocked fridge. Through creating an online catalog to buy, sell, and rent books, TextbookRush allows students to sell their books easily and on their own time.
In addition to their online store, TextbookRush has an app that further streamlines the process. The TextbookRush app simplifies the interaction by focusing on one specific area: selling your unwanted textbooks – all from the comfort of your apartment, house, or dorm.
The TextbookRush app is surprisingly fast and easy to navigate.
If you’re looking to sell your books, the process is extremely straightforward. Either manually enter the each book’s ISBN number or scan each barcode via the app’s home screen and the TextbookRush app will pop up with each title and the price that they offer for it. Simple.

Once you sell your books, choose from the three different payment methods that TextbookRush offers: cash (check), PayPal, or store credit.
