Trade For Credit Program

  • We offer 20% of the list price of gently owned books in store credit that can be applied toward the purchase of used products throughout the store.
  • 50% of your purchase will be deducted from your store credit balance and the remaining balance can be paid via cash, check, Discover, Visa or Mastercard. 
  • Why can't I pay for my entire purchase with store credit?  Even with gentle persuasion, our landlord and utility company refuse to accept our paperbacks in the place of a monthly payment.  Our credit policy was created to provide our customers with affordable books while still keeping us in business.  Payment for half your purchase with cash, check or credit card assures we can pay our rent and remain your favorite neighborhood bookstore!  Remember that you're getting half off the already reduced price and in most cases, you can return that book once you've read it for store credit. 
  • Ask about our Christee Cook Credit.  With this program, you can apply 100% of your store credit to your purchase of used products throughout the store!
  • No appointment necessary!  You may bring books into the store for credit consideration Monday-Sunday between 1PM-4PM.  Please understand that condition and demand are taken into consideration and that, regretfully, we cannot accept every book every time.
  • Store credit does not expire and is transferable.  
  • Please feel free to call 618-655-0355 with any questions you may have!
