FAQ - Loyalty program
HOW DO I EARN POINTS?
2 points are awarded for every $1 spent (for Buy and Rent orders). The same is for Buyback orders - you earn 2 points for every $1 you get for your books. Note that you do not get points for eBooks.

Enrollment is completely free.
WHEN DO I START EARNING REWARDS?

WHY AREN'T MY POINTS AVAILABLE RIGHT AWAY?
Points earned from Buyback orders will not be available for redemption until your order has been paid for.
During the holding period, points will be listed under the "Points Available Soon" section. This is to prevent redemption of points for returned product. Once the holding period has passed, the points will be automatically moved into "My Points" area and can be claimed toward a reward if the points balance allows.
Points for Buy/Rent orders will appear in your account within an hour

Redeeming is easy. Just follow these three simple steps:
