The Phoenix Bookstore ­— help students get more cash for textbooks

The Phoenix Bookstore offers a few tips to help students receive more cash for their books at official buyback May 9 to 12.

  • When the Bookstore has the textbook request for the next semester in hand before buyback, students receive more money for their books.
  • Textbooks bought during buyback that are used for the following semester stay on campus and lowers the cost of textbooks.
  • Thousands of textbook buyback dollars go from student hands back into the campus and Green Bay community.

Phoenix Bookstore steers students to EZ Books

The Phoenix Bookstore is open most days over winter break, and they’re still in the book-buyback mode, but staff members are now turning their attention to reminding students to pre-order spring textbooks right now.  EZ Book forms are available at the store.  Students can also log into their SIS accounts, click on “Order Books” and voila…all their textbooks will magically appear in their cart.  Make textbook option choices (new, used, rental, ebook) and on to the checkout (with friendly bookstore staff ensuring books are ready for pickup when students return to campus.) Those who need help can call 1-800-321-UWGB.
