About us

TextbookRush is all about helping students achieve the education they want and deserve. We sell books at seriously low prices, as well as textbook rentals for those one-and-done classes. Have books to sell? We’ve got you covered. We buy over one million different titles back from students and other sources for cash or store credit. And that’s not all we’ve got. When it’s time for a study break you can check us out for great movies and video games.

When all is said and done, our focus is on growing with YOU – our customers, suppliers, affiliates, and partners. We strive to build strong and mutually beneficial relationships with people across the world and provide services designed especially for you!

Thank you,
