Review by confirmed purchaser

Wow! Blown away! Confidence restored!

I was skeptical about going back on Amazon for a school book after having been horribly misled by what turned out to be false statements from another company. I get most of my textbooks in ebook form from my college, but I was having issues with the ebook reader, and not being able to flip through pages like one would in a normal book. I went and found a used book that was supposed to be very lightly marked-up, and some other things that made it highly appealing to me. I ordered it and the textbook came about two weeks later. I left it alone for a couple days because I had no reading necessary, and the book appeared to be brand new according to the cover. I finally opened the book and started thumbing through the pages, looking for the chapter I wanted, and ended up going page by page and counting over 100 pages of highlighting, personal notes, and sections filled out. I was outraged that the book had what turned out to be a quarter of the way marked up, very much nothing like the very lightly marked-up quality I expected to receive. Needless to say, I went back to using the ebook reader for the last week of my 4-week course. For a new course, I can only read my ebook while having internet connection as the ebook is an online version only. I could not download it, read only the assigned chapters either while carpooling to/from work, or during lunch break, both examples of times I have no internet access at all. I went online to Amazon again and found my textbook on Bookbyte. I have no clue what an "exam copy" of a book is, but I they were offering for me to purchase a brand new "exam copy" version of the textbook I needed, for almost nothing. I figured I would go ahead and splurge on expedited shipping charges, most especially since even with higher shipping, I was still getting a brand new textbook for under $10. Most amazing purchase I did, ever, for a textbook. Not only was my book delivered to my mailbox 3 days later, but it was also brand new, never had the cover opened! Thank you, Bookbyte, for a wonderful experience! The next time I need a textbook, I am going to look at Bookbyte first before going to Amazon! (I still have no clue what an "exam copy" is, but the book is the same physically as it is electronically!) :)

Easy purchasing!...

Ordering my books was easy, and paying for them was easy. When I ordered shipping I paid for the regular 5-7 business days. MOST of the time that means 3-5 business days. For bookbyte it meant 7-9 business days. The late arrival of m books put me a behind in my class and now i'm playing catch up. If you order from them pay extra for the next day delivery, or expect to wait, and wait and wait.

Overall a good experience

I've been using Bookbyte for buybacks, and finally decided to order some textbooks from it. The books arrived within the time frame stated. I was a little disappointed with how used the two books that were categorized as "acceptable" were - they are very, very worn. I'll continue to use them for buybacks as their prices are typically better than average, but I'm not sure I'll purchase books from them in the future.

When choosing a book, please click the View Details link below the Used price to show exactly what book you are choosing. If you just click the Add to Cart button on the page then it will give you the cheapest option available which is normally a book in Acceptable condition or Damaged condition.

For purchases and rentals, perfect execution and excellent results

I have used Bookbyte for both purchasing and renting textbooks. The service is straightforward, easy to navigate website, great selection of books, quick shipping and low shipping rates. Rental fees in particular tend to be lower than other services. I strongly recommend checking here first for any textbook needs before you consider buying (especially expensive new books) or renting from another source.

Oh where oh where is my book??

I will not rent from Bookbyte again. I have been a long time Chegg user. But I decided to check out Bookbyte because the prices for rental were lower than Chegg and others I researched. I placed my order for 2 books and was happy. When the books had been shipped one of my books was cancelled by bookbyte because they said it wasn't in stock. Why was I able to purchase it if it wasn't in stock? I didn't complain and just ordered the cancelled book on chegg. Bookbyte said the estimated delivery time was 7-10 business days. Well I still don't have my book and it's been 16 business days. My Chegg book which I ordered after bookbyte came within 4 days with a 7-10 day estimated delivery.

Excellent Customer Service

I rarely write reviews but had to compliment BookByte on their customer service. I had an issue with a marketplace seller and BookByte helped me resolve it. They contacted me in a timely manner and provided updates in the timeframes they gave me. Every experience I've had with them has been a good one and I couldn't be more happy with their products and service. Thank you!!
