I love thriftbooks! I found them last year during the summer and have been a loyal customer ever since! Now that my daughter is entering college I hope to find textbooks on this site as well!

Keep up the great work!

I ordered 3 copies of "Warriors Heart" on 2 separate occasions just recently. I received my first order of 2 books very quickly from Smokey Mountain Books. However the one copy Im waiting 4 from you wasnt delivered on the 9th. Instead the postal service left me a reminder slip & I attempted 2 get my package 2day, however they can't find it. Im very angry that I paid for a book that seems 2 have disappeared. I would like 2 be compensated & will not order anymore books from you!

Thrift Books is nothing but a modern day American sweat shop..I used to be an employee there. Not only do they look the other way when you report something to HR, such as favortism, intimidation by the supervisors and sexual harrasment they in my opinion condone it. The condition of their warehouse is disgusting, they don't make it a big known fact that they have hygenic products to use such as gloves and face mask due to all the nasty, dusty, moldy books you are touching and inhaling dust, that when I did find out those things were available to me I got an attitude from they're supervisor, Jaun Rocha, and was told I needed to use my face mask all week...needless to say I ended up with a rageing sinus infection, and mursa...I've even worked in assisted living homes with residents with mursa and never contracted the could be fatal diesease...And if you ever wonder why your not getting your books on time, it's probably because a good portion of the crew and supervisor's are high or drunk....no lie, I witnessed on several occasions drug deals, leads buying alcohol at the gas stations on break and people under the influence. And here's the best thing about it, if you don't allow your supervisor Juan to call you "shorty" all the time, or make him feel like he is god in his warehouse which is something he told me, that he was god in that warehouse, then he targets you, screams at you, and intimidate you and then eventually fires you. It's a sad company who treats their employees like dirt and allow a lot of illegal things to go on while they sit in the office and make a good penny in their pocket while the employees are barely surviving and being mistreated..don't support that tyranny...Needless to say in this economy a job is a job, but this job was the worse I ever had and I would'nt recomend this company to anyone. they are low down, no good and as i stated before, a modern day american sweat shop...Dont Give your money to a company that doesnt support their people who work hard to help them make money, it's the right thing to do..

I've ordered many books from Thriftbooks.com and have never had a problem. The books are very reasonable and have always arrived quickly and in great condition, even the ones listed only as "Acceptable". Thank you!

Sounds like its the post office that messed up not thriftbooks. You did get a reminder slip from the post office that it was there right?

I was incredibly unhappy with the service I received from Thriftbooks in Auburn. I ordered two books from them in two weeks and both had to be returned because they were not as described. I had ordered hardcovers and paperbacks came. More than that, one of them was a reviewer's copy. It should not be such a difficult task to get this kind of thing right. (An apology wouldn't have hurt either.) I would suggest that customers go with sellers they have had good experiences with before taking a chance on this bunch.

Well excuse me, it sounds like a bunch of BS in the first place.

My goodness, if all of that really happened, then she should contact a labor lawyer. Of course, it's probably just completely fabricated. Sounds like sour grapes because work is, well...WORK and not a party like college was. We've all seen it before.

I have ordered several times from Thriftbooks and have been completely satisfied with service and pricing.

Only problem I've come across so far with them was one time I ordered a book that was said to be in good condition but instead it was falling apart. I love all kinds of book so Ive kept it and since its not a store to go complain to i figured I at least got to find out what happened. The books are cheap so if they look cheap its to only be expected. They cant all be cheap diamonds in the rough. But I can say that all the books I have gotten have been pretty clean. They are used books after all which means they come from all types of homes and conditions. You get what you pay for right? Though, after reading the posts, I won't work for them... ever. I'll still by books and expand my library though. And probably inspect my books a lil closer too.

I have ordered from here several times and have always been satisfied. One time I did receive the wrong book, but ended up liking it.

"I STRONGLY recommend NOT ordering from this company. I ordered a book that was "Quality - Very Good". That was not what I received. I received a book that was written all over and it had serious mold damage. This book never should have been sold let alone passed off as in "very good" condition. The company has not refunded my money. Although the company indicated it did so (I could keep the book), it has been over two weeks and I have not received the credit. I don't feel the company can be trusted."

it sounds like the post office is at fault if they left you a notice. i would take copy of notice of delivery to the postmaster and seek remediation from them. hope this helps
