In some cases, an eBook may be available for your course. Most eBooks that we provide have a duration of 150 to 180 days and are good for one semester after activation. Some eBooks are for purchase (when rental is not available). eBooks do not come with access to homework websites like Connect, MindTap, Revel, MyMathLab, etc. eBooks simply give you access to view or print pages of the textbook. Before selecting an eBook, please make sure that your professor does not require you to bring the book with you to class. Under limited circumstances an eBook can be refunded: It must be unused and it must be within two weeks of purchase. In order to receive a refund, you will have to visit one of our locations with a copy of the email you received with the redemption code. 


Your textbook options may include rental.  When available, this is your cheapest option – but it only makes sense for those who don’t plan to keep books after the term is over.

To rent a book you must have a credit or debit card in your name with an expiration date no earlier than April, 2020. You will also need to show a driver’s license. You cannot rent on your parent’s credit card unless that parent is present to sign the rental contract in our store at the time of rental. You cannot rent with a gift card.

Rental Returns (end of semester):

(updated for spring semester 2020 rentals)

Rental books remain property of Booksmart and must be returned to our customer service counter* by the return deadline. Return your rental books in person (do not ship books back!) to the same store where you rented them by May 7th, 2020*.  After this deadline, late fees or replacement charges will apply. Marking and highlights must be kept to a minimum. If you damage or lose a book while it is in your possession, you will be required to pay the replacement charge.  If a book is not returned by the due date, you must pay the replacement charge or late fees.

*SOAEP (School of Accounting Executive Program) spring rentals are due back, or must be postmarked, by May 11th, 2020. Booksmart does not pay for return postage so please consider this when making your decision to rent. Only books rented for this program are exempt from in-person rental returns. Make sure to include a copy of your receipt (if shipping your rental return) so that we correctly connect the return to your account.

*ES1,ES2: books for FAU courses starting on December 14th can be returned for a refund only through 12/20/19.


Returns for Refund (thru drop/add deadline):

(updated for spring 2020 returns)

We know students make schedule changes and may need to return books they no longer need, and we want to make the return process as quick and easy as possible.  At the same time, because we need to make returned books available to other students immediately, we require that returns must be made in person* (do not ship books back!) to the Booksmart location where they were purchased. Books must be returned in the same condition as they were purchased -- if an item was shrink-wrapped or sealed, it must be returned still sealed.  Original cash register receipt or packing list must be provided for all returns. After the deadline there are no refunds, credits, or exchanges. The deadline to return books purchased for spring classes starting in January is January 17th, 2020 for FAU* and January 13th, 2020 for PBSC. 

*SOAEP (School of Accounting Executive Program) books purchased for courses starting on 1/18/20 can be returned until 1/27/20. These books can be returned in-person or postmarked by that date. Booksmart does not pay for return postage. Please make sure to include a copy of your receipt so that we may correctly credit you back. Only SOAEP book purchases can be shipped back for a refund.
