    • Unfortunately, we cannot change your shipping address from Domestic to International.

      If you would like to change your shipping address from Domestic to International you will need to cancel your order and take your item(s) through check-out again.

      We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

To expedite your request, please select Address Correction in the Subject section of the form. If your order has not yet been shipped, we will be happy to make this change for you.

    • Be sure to enter your address correctly to ensure a smooth delivery. Follow these guidelines when entering your shipping address:

      • City: Enter APO, FPO, or DPO.

      • State/Province: Choose the two-letter code for the region where the recipient is stationed: AE, AA, or AP. Military codes are located at the end of the drop-down list.

      • Postal Code: Enter the appropriate 5-digit ZIP code (or ZIP+4)

      • Country: Select USA from the country list. The USPS will transfer the package to the military mail system for overseas delivery.

      Please allow additional delivery time for orders going to APO/FPO/DPO addresses. In some cases delivery time can be as long as 30 to 45 days for Standard shipping. We are unable to provide tracking information once a package has entered the military mail system.

    • Please allow additional delivery time for orders going to Alaska, Hawaii, Guam & Puerto Rico. In some cases delivery time can be as long as 45 days for Standard shipping. Choose our Express shipping option for faster service.

      Orders using the Standard shipping option are delivered by USPS Media Mail, a shipping method created by the Post Office to keep the price of shipping books low. Unfortunately, packages going to Guam, Puerto Rico, Alaska, and Hawaii can take longer than normal to arrive. In some cases delivery time can be as long as 30 days.

      U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States: When entering an address for Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, American Samoa, Marshall Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, or Federated States of Micronesia, Follow these guidelines when entering your shipping address:

      • State: Select the appropriate two-letter state code from the drop-down menu. For example, the 2-letter state code for Palau is PW.

    • We cannot be held responsible for items that pass through Customs and require additional payment. We have zero control in Customs fees but in most cases our customers never get charged, especially for low-value packages. However, it's technically possible, unfortunately it's out of our hands. We are not able to refund based on a customer being charged a Customs tax or duty fee on a package coming into your country – it's the right of your local government to charge this if they choose.

    • We cannot be held responsible for shipping charges or deliveries that do not originate with our company. Once our shipment has been delivered to the destination address you provided with your order, our shipping responsibility is complete.

    • Our items are stored in processing centers across the United States. While we strive to combine packages as much as possible, we cannot guarantee product availability by location so your order may ship from multiple locations.

    • Your replacement order will not appear in your ThriftBooks order history. Please contact Customer Service here for any order or tracking details.

    • Each item will incur a separate shipping fee for orders shipping internationally. We strive to offer the best international shipping rates and cannot combine these fees based on volume.

    • Our Domestic orders ship via OSM to be tendered to the USPS distribution hub nearest you for final delivery. Unfortunately, we do not control the transportation of the package or the route chosen by the delivery company. If your order does not seem to be going directly to you, there can be a few reasons for this. It is not uncommon for a package to leave your delivery area to be sorted and returned back to your area for final delivery.

      Your book is picked up by OSM from our processing center to be tendered to the USPS distribution hub nearest you for final delivery. OSM takes this book to their nearest sort facility, which will often be in a different state than the package was shipped from. After your order is sorted, it is then transported to USPS who also sorts the package before taking it to your local post office.

  • Collectible Books

    • Our collectible books follow the same guidelines as all other books on our site. Each book is individually rated by a ThriftBooks staff member. All collectible photos shown online are actual photos.

      New: Just like it sounds. A brand-new, unused, unread copy in perfect condition.

      Like New: An apparently unread copy in perfect condition. Dust cover is intact; pages are clean and are not marred by notes or folds of any kind.

      Very Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged.

      Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include "From the library of" labels or previous owner inscriptions.

      Acceptable: A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text.

"Thus" can also cover various reprints and revisions, as long as they are the first edition of the book to be published in that format.

    • We price our books according to current market demand. For some out-of-print or otherwise hard to find or desirable books, this can result in the current listing price being higher than the original retail price of the book when it was first released. In such cases, we usually have the best price available anywhere on the internet. We do not offer price matching or negotiate prices at this time.

    • There is no specific timeframe for the availability of backordered titles. Some titles return to inventory in a matter of days, but many can take up to several weeks. The length of time it takes is dependent on the time it takes the publisher to make titles available to our distributors.

      If the item is not restocked at the end of 90 days, we will cancel your backorder and issue a refund.

ThriftBooks allows you to purchase a backordered title only when we can confirm that our distributors have placed an order with the publisher. If the item is not restocked at the end of 90 days, we will cancel your backorder and issue a refund.

      • “Temporarily Unavailable” titles are for both NEW and USED books that we have no visibility into when the title will become available again. You can add a “Temporarily Unavailable” title to your Wish List and we will notify you as soon as we have an available copy.

      • “Pre-Orders” are NEW books that have not yet reached their publication date. ThriftBooks allows you to purchase pre-orders once a title is 8 weeks or less from its publication date.

    • You can purchase any qualifying backorder from ThriftBooks just as you do any other item on our site. A title is considered a qualifying backorder if our distributors show they have that title on order from the publisher. The length of time it takes is dependent on the time it takes the publisher to make titles available to our distributors.

      If the item is not restocked at the end of 90 days, we will cancel your backorder and issue a refund.

    • Because most cases can be prevented by the buyer, we charge a $2.00 restocking fee for each item returned to us.*

      Below are the reasons why a package would be “Returned to Sender.”

    • In mid-2018, the US law governing whether a state could collect sales tax on purchases made from internet retailers, such as ThriftBooks, changed. In the past ThriftBooks was only compelled to collect tax for a state in which we have a processing center or other physical presence. The new law now permits all states to charge sales tax regardless of whether we have a presence in that state or not.

      ThriftBooks is complying with these changes as each state makes them in order to continue selling books to customers no matter where they live. Taxes will be applied to your order as applicable at checkout based on your shipping address.

      If you are tax exempt, please send a PDF copy of your Tax Exempt form to CSHelp@thriftbooks.com. Once we have your sales tax form saved to your account, you will not be charged sales tax on your future orders.

    • As a US-based seller, all currency on our site is listed in US Dollars (USD).

      We cannot be held responsible for items returned to us due to unacceptable content/restricted materials, etc.

You can also send the packages to a residential address and deliver the item personally.
