Mr. K’s Policy Guide
We trade used books, CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, audiobooks and video games for store trade credit. There are items for which we pay cash.
We have two colors of trade credit and each one designates what that credit slip can purchase.
Purple trade credit is given to a customer who trades in Books, Comic Books and Audio Books. This can be used for Used Books, Comic Books and Audio Books.
Green Trade Credit is given to a customer who trades in CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays and Current Video Games. This can be used for everything in the store except yellow stickered merchandise.
Trade Credit cannot be used to purchase any item priced with a yellow sticker which are mainly new books, posters and side items.
We cannot offer trade credit or cash for:
- Books in poor condition (torn, soiled, stained, smelly, damaged, etc.)
- Books published outside our age limits
- Books that we subjectively feel are unsellable
- Books previously purchased here which now fall into any of the above categories.
