Trading with Mr. K's: Frequently Asked Questions

 

COVID-19 TRADE UPDATE:

All locations are currently accepting items for both trade credit and cash.



WHAT CAN I BRING IN TO TRADE OR SELL TO YOU?
We offer store credit for the following gently used items: Books, CDs, DVDs, Comic Books, Graphic Novels, Manga, Blu-rays, Video Games, unopened Puzzles/Games, Collectibles, Funko Pops, Gaming Systems and more.

We also offer a cash option for certain items. These include but are not limited to: Unique Books, Current and Recent Bestsellers, Vinyl Records, Graphic Novels, Manga, Anime, Comics, Collectibles, and other unique finds. All cash offers are subject to item condition and inventory needs. 

CAN I USED TRADE CREDIT TOWARDS ONLINE PURCHASES?
Unfortunately, at this time trade credit cannot be redeemed for online purchases.



HOW MUCH TRADE CREDIT OR CASH WILL I GET?
We evaluate each trade individually based on condition, the publishing date and current demand. We then offer you a trade (or cash amount) based on the total value of your items and a percentage of what we sell them for.


 

HOW DO I GET MY TRADE CREDIT?
We have two colors of Trade Credit paper slips:

 

Purple Trade Credit is given to a customer who trades in Books, Comic Books and Audio Books. This can be used to purchase Used Books, Comic Books and Audio Books excluding books with a Yellow Sticker. 
 

Green Trade Credit is given to a customer who trades in CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays and Current Video Games. Green Trade Credit can be used to purchase anything in the store excluding items with a Yellow Sticker.

 

Trade Credit cannot be used on any item with a Yellow Sticker and/or combined with any promotional offers or discounts.

Trade Credit cannot be used for online purchases or items put on hold.

Trade credit never expires and can be used at any Mr. K's locations.

The paper slip is the only record of your credit that exists. We do not keep digital records.

CAN I USE MY CREDIT THE SAME DAY I BROUGHT IN THE TRADE?
Yes, we will deduct it from your purchase total for all eligble items you would like to buy that day.



WHY DID YOU NOT TAKE SOME OF MY ITEMS?
- We already have an overstock of that item
- An item was in poor or damaged condition 
- It fell outside of our age limit for a particular category 
- It is not sellable based on current customer demand
- You previously purchased it at Mr. K's but it now falls into any of the above categories
- It is a library book or book club series
- It is self-published or an advanced reader copy

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE ITEMS YOU DO NOT TAKE?
We return them back to you. We do not recycle merchandise for customers.  

HOW LONG DOES A TRADE TAKE?
A trade usually takes 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the trade. If you need to leave the trade and come back another time, you must sign a leave agreement. Any unclaimed trades left longer than 48 hours will be considered property of Mr. K's. 

CAN I BRING ITEMS PREVIOUSLY BOUGHT AT MR. K'S FOR TRADE?
Yes! We especially like seeing the new books we sell coming back to us as trade.
All items previously purchased at Mr. K's are subject to the same condition and inventory requirements listed above. 

WHAT IF I HAVE A LARGE VOLUME OF ITEMS?
Please call us so we can discuss the best way to evaluate your items.
