Chegg, the #1 textbook rental company, will pay you for your used textbooks. You can receive payment via American Express Gift Card, or Chegg credit. Just enter your ISBN, get a quote, and ship your books to Chegg. Chegg will inspect your book and pay you within 1-10 days depending on your payment method.
|Mar 2014||I was concerned in sending them a book that was the missing CD. I contacted them via Facebook and they assured me they would give me the same quoted price with or without the CD. I love Chegg. They are probably the best of the best!|
|Feb 2014||No complaints. Prepaid UPS label but they only pay by check, which took a few weeks to arrive. Customer service was good (virtual chat).|
|Feb 2014||Chegg is my vendor of choice. They issue payment quicker than any other company i have sent money to. They do not try to get out of paying for your book for any little reason like some of the other guys. Love chegg!|
|Jan 2014||I sold six books to Chegg for a quoted total of $196.73. Upon reading reviews from other sites I was definitely nervous about sending my textbooks to a site that keeps them if they are in "poor" condition. Sent my books out on the 12/23/13 and was notified Chegg received them 12/29/13. Books were in the conditions specified and I received the full quoted amount (or at least they said that was what the check was for). They said it would be mailed within 5 business days and I figured with New Years right around the corner I would probably be waiting. Check showed up today 1/11/13 for the full quoted amount. I have to say guys, I was definitely nervous about getting stiffed but it worked out. Warning, only send your books if they are in GREAT condition, if you are weary about the condition don't send it because they might not pay for it and it will mess with your experience. As a Senior graduating in May 2014 I would definitely sell more of my textbooks that I purchased not related to my major again. I hope this review provided a little reassurance because I had nothing but a positive experience. Also I asked for a Check NOT Swerve or whatever it is called, still no issues. Definitely would give them my business again.|
|Oct 2013||Serve will start a $1 monthly fee if you don't add direct deposit or have $500 in monthly transactions. Please Chegg switch back to PayPal! I will avoid Chegg until they switch payment providers.|
|Oct 2013||chegg is by far the best. I always get my money and they are really is to contact if needed.|
|Sep 2013||"GOOD NEWS" concerning Chegg. Like many of you, I was disappointed when Chegg went from offering paypal to the Serve account and stopped using them for awile. I finally decided to sign up for Serve(I have teenagers who love to shop!) because there are many times when Chegg offers substantially more than others are offering for a particular item. Here's the "good news", serve will pay a bill for you with your balance, effectively making your serve balance the same as cash. So far, I've used them twice for this, worked like a charm!|
I used to use Chegg when they paid by PayPal or check, but since they now only pay via serve card, I won't use them any more. It's a shame, because they were one of the best.
|Jul 2013||Ugh! Got good price quote... but... where is money? Supposed to put to Serve card... but no money after 2 months. Got in touch via chat... said they would send check in 10 days. But according to others... that may never come either. Stay tuned...|
|Jul 2013||Just a heads up everyone--you don't actually even need a Serve account to get paid form Chegg. You can say you have a Serve account and type in a fake Serve email and when Chegg notices you don't have a Serve account, they will mail you a check instead. Trust me I've done it! They pay very fast even via Check! (BTW---I later tried Serve and got a $25 free promotion for a $1 purchase!) Chegg almost always pays the day they receive your book. Serve is pretty convenient if you guys give it a chance and payments are usually issued the same day the books are received as well, I'm telling you! Since you have the option to get paid via Serve, Check (if you play the system), or Chegg Credit ( which is nearly worthless since Amazon is almost always cheaper, but can be convenient for those who buy on Chegg) I give them an overall 9/10!|
|Jun 2013||It's been about two months now and the check they said would get to me in 15 business days has never arrived. I've had replacement checks sent and nothing at all. They even had the check returned to them once because it wasn't able to be delivered, and never bothered to let me know. I'm so done with Chegg. I want my money, then I'm never using them again.|
|Jun 2013||Had no issues with Chegg will use them again.|
|May 2013||Not sure what is up with Chegg, but I have several books which they have received weeks ago that have not been paid. Trying to reach customer service is next to impossible, and phone calls made to their company gets disconnected. They used to pay within a day of receiving the books, but now it has been over two weeks and nothing.|
|May 2013||Chegg is still "processing" 6 orders of books I sent in 3 weeks ago. I checked Chegghelp on Twitter and hundreds of people are having the same problem of not being paid yet!! I would not sell to Chegg until this is resolved! Just go and look for yourself on @CheggHelp on Twitter.|
|May 2013||Is anyone else experiencing service delays on getting paid? I submitted books 3 weeks ago and it showed it was received but still hasn't gotten paid. Also, the view order form is a mess, it will only show partial orders, not the full order of what you sold.|
|May 2013||They used to be good, but now they don't pay you via anything except american express card. No more paypal or checks.|
|May 2013||Chegg's new methods of payment as either only Chegg credit or American Express Serve just lost them a sellback.|
|May 2013||I used to like Chegg, but the payment options now are bit ridiculous. I will not be using them again until they return Paypal as a payment option. Adios Ghegg!|
|May 2013||They were super fast. Paid what they quoted. I have no problem with Serve as payment. Would definitely use again.|
|May 2013||I love doing business with Chegg even with the new payment policy.|
|May 2013||Great buyback prices, but they will only pay you via American Express Swerve or Chegg Credit. I don't have an American Express Swerve account, nor do I want to open one, considering all of the horrible reviews on the Internet and I don't need a Chegg credit, so I guess I'll take my books elsewhere!|
|May 2013||Chegg, PLEASE change your buying policy back to Paypal. You were my number one company to sell books to. You were lighting fast in processing the books and making payments. You always paid what you quoted and you were a real pleasure to sell books to. I am sad to say that I will now have to use other companies because without paypal, I just can't use you. Please, please, please reconsider Paypal.|
|May 2013||We are a non-profit organization and will no longer be using Chegg because of the payment change. We liked working with them but are not allowed the new choices of payment so we hope they change back and add paypal again as well.|
|May 2013||Absolutely loved selling my books to Chegg, until they instituted their new payment policies of the American Express Serve or Chegg Credit.|
|Apr 2013||I was a regular seller to Chegg, until they changed to that serve card or Chegg credit only. I might as well sell to Amazon, same money with less hassle. Not selling to them again unless they reinstitute paypal or getting a good old-fashioned check.|
|Apr 2013||Agree with everybody else... great service in the past and never head any complaints, but they desperately need a different payment method other than American Express serve or Cheg Credit... Currently using anyone else that accepts Paypal/Check with a good review.|
|Apr 2013||Chegg used to be one of my favorite companies to sell books to. When they paid via PayPal, it was lightening fast, usually within half an hour of receiving the email saying the books had arrived. When they paid by check, having to rely on the US Post office naturally took longer, although it always appeared that Chegg paid promptly. Now they no longer pay either way. You either have to sign up for a Serve account or get Chegg credits. I did sign up for Serve, but have to admit it is a huge pain in the tush. I am not interested in using this card, so I will no longer sell books to Chegg even if they are the highest buyer.|
|Apr 2013||These guys have hit rock bottom for me. At first, they stopped PayPal payments, and that was a major bummer, but I grudgingly accepted the longer wait check payments. It usually took about a month. I just found out this morning the only two methods of payment they accept now are chegg credit and a credit to an American express serve account. Not impressed. Will be using pretty much anyone else.|
|Apr 2013||Great company to send books to. Buyback prices fair. Customer service always has been exceptional. Although I love this company and am highly satisfied with the results, I have to admit I am switching buyback companies. The fact that paypal and checks are no longer an option for payment is a big disappointment. I do not want to setup a Serve account through American Express, nor do I need the Chegg credits. So my only option is to go elsewhere. Chegg I hope you change you payment method---I loved doing business with you.|
|Jan 2013||Chegg overall was a great place for me to sell my books I recieved the same amount they quoted my books for. Although the quote was low in price, but I didnt need the books at all so im satisfied with the little money I did recieve. I shiped my boks in 12/19/12 and received my check on 1/3/2013. 15 days total. Also they kept me updated with my book status and check status through email...great communication|
Great service payment was ultra quick but is way slower now that they don't have the PayPal option.
Went with al lower priced buyer this time because I prefer the PayPal process
So far so good. Textbooks received, checks are on the way as of Nov. 26.
Note: Chegg no longer offers PayPal as a payment option. Payment by mailed check is pretty much the only option.
|Nov 2012||Great company. Got what I was quoted in a timely manner. Thanks.|
|Oct 2012||Very highly recommend Chegg. They are a great company and provide a very professional service.|
|Oct 2012||We had very good experience with Chegg for several months. We sent them six orders in late September, however, for which payment has not been made to PayPal, our chosen method. We have gone to the Chegg website, and our account says that the orders were accepted and paid for weeks ago, despite the fact that no sums have been received by PayPal or by us directly. The Chegg website is set up in such a way as to make contact almost impossible--no phone numbers, no help desk, and any entry we have made asking for help disappears with the next instruction. The website seems designed to obfuscate and to reject any contact with the company. Any help from other sellers would be appreciated. In the meantime, despite their good buying prices, we believe selling to Chegg is risky and we will not sell to them again until this is resolved and an explanation given.|
|Oct 2012||I had a great experience with Chegg. The money went smoothly and quickly into my paypal account. They delivered on what they promised. A very professional business. I am using them again!|
|Oct 2012||I would have given Chegg 5 stars but they really messed up this time. I waited over a month to get my money and they said they deposited into my Paypal but they don't know what happened so they told me that they would send me a check. From the time they received my book to the time I received their check was a total of 41 days.. They were a 5 Star on other occasions.|
|Oct 2012||Excellent and great people here. A++++|
|Sep 2012||Love this company, prices are fair and payment is prompt!!!! Never had any problems and I've used a bunch of different companies...this one is by far my favorite!!|
|Sep 2012||I was surprise at the prompt payment. I expect them to reject two of my books which were in good but not very good but they took them. Overall, I would recommend them. Not always the highest price but they are legit.|
This is by far the best vendor I have sold books too! I can't say enough great things about this company. Instead of offering free shipping through media mail (which is so slow) they offer free shipping through UPS! Also, when using Pay-Pal you receive payment quickly! In fact, I am now receiving text messages when they have made payment to my account.
Although this company does not offer to buy as many books as some vendors offer- they pay much more for the books they do buy. I have not yet to have a book denied because of damage. Their website if user friendly- and works great with Bookscouter.com
|Sep 2012||WOW! Shipped via UPS on Monday and the payment was in my PayPal account by Wednesday!|
Chegg.com is a wonderful place to sell your books. I was skeptical at first, sending my books. But they are very efficient, they work with UPS and shipping has a tracking label also, so you can see where you're package once you sent it.
If you choose that you want to get the money to your paypal account, that's the best option, because you get the money right after they get the books.
|Sep 2012||My experience was overwhelmingly positive. Chegg has you ship to them with UPS, which is an absolute must (media mail is just asking for trouble). It's quick, proven to be relatively reliable, and the tracking system alleviates a bit of the stress involved with moving a couple hundred dollars of books at once. I shipped 14 textbooks in one 50lb box, started tracking them right away, and 3 days later started receiving email notifications that they were processing the books. I had paypal payments for all but 3 books within an hour of the first email, and to keep me in the loop they told me they had indeed received the others but they were queued up for condition verification. Within 24 hours I had been paid for all of the books, and each and every one at the full quoted price (which was actually a surprise, some of the books having slight wear/folds/the odd coffee stain...). Thumbs up.|
|Aug 2012||By far the fastest paying of all the sites out there. Not quite as picky as some of the other companies out there. However they get 4 stars because they are the only company out there that I have run into that has a monthly limit on the number of books they will buy from you. I think it's like 30 or so. So, don't send those $1.50 and $2.00 books to them. I found this out the hard way. Send them the higher priced books. Perhaps they will lift this restriction in the future.|
|Aug 2012||My experience with Chegg was disappointing. I sold them one book and requested to be paid through paypal. On 7/27 I received an e-mail saying that they had received my book. However, after a couple of weeks I still hadn't received my money, and every time I logged into my account it listed the order as "under review". Then, 17 days later, on August 13th, I logged into my account and it said "no orders". I called them and a nice customer service rep named Zoe apologized and said that she would MAIL me a check which would arrive in about 7-10 business days. The check came on August 20th, and was for the full amount, which is why I still gave Chegg three stars. It all turned out ok, but it took three weeks and a phone call to get my money.|
|Aug 2012||I was very "ify" about using this company but I can say it was the best decision that I had made!! They have very quick turnaround. I have sent in 4 different orders and not one time have I had any type of issue. 3 of the orders the money was credited to my PayPal account the same day they received the books and the other one was done the next day!!! I will most definitely use Chegg in the future!! Thank you!!|
|Aug 2012||This is not what I expected. I sent my books out 8/2 then they received my books on 8/6 and told me that my payment was credited to my PayPal account and I would receive my money in 3 business days. Now I have to request my payment by check and they're saying that it will be credited in 3 business days then it will be sent out within 7 business days. They're basically giving me the run-around.|
|Aug 2012||Very happy with another Chegg transaction!|
|Aug 2012||I have worked with this company a lot. Never had a major issue and payment for PayPal is sent very quick.|
|Aug 2012||I submitted four books for sale. Because of posted reviews that books that were not in very good condition were sent back, I examined all of my books closely and concluded that they were all in very good condition. Three of the books were accepted and payment was posted to PayPal promptly. However, one book was rejected and I paid for it to be sent back. I am certain that the book that I received (the one that I should have received the most money for) was not the one that I sent in, because I would never have judged this book to be in very good condition. I have never submitted a review, but felt that I needed to do it in this case.|
|Jul 2012||Received payment within a couple days after I shipped. Super fast.|
|Jul 2012||Super Fast Payment. Would Use Again.|
|Jul 2012||Super fast, sent books on Monday, got paid full amount Thursday|
|Jul 2012||Fastest company by far. I sent my books UPS on 7/24 and got paid on 7/26. A lot of other book buyback companies are very shady and take forever so this was really impressive.|
I recently gave 5 star review and here is something new about chegg.
I have sold exactly same books that I have sold about 3 weeks ago.
And one of them got rejected due to poor condition..
in my opinion, this one is in so much better condition than my firt order.. This event made me skeptical about their standards... I had to pay $6.99 to send my books back to me which was never mentioned when I was sending my books..
I do not know that if my books will have razor cut on the cover like other ppl said.. (I havent received my book.. it takes 7 days to get it..)
I don't know.. I will make another review when I get my book back.
At 11:59AM I received this email from Chegg.com
"We wanted to let you know that we've received your books today and they are currently being processed for check in."
At 12:17PM I receive this email from PayPal:
Just thought you'd like to know CHEGG, INC sent you $
Excellent service, I mailed a textbook to Chegg.com on Monday, UPS tracking said it would arrive on Friday, and today is Friday and I got my money virtually the instant they received the textbook I sent... Less than 15 minutes from received to payment sent!
I recently sold 4 textbooks that I used. Actually this was my first time ever selling my book to one of these book comapanies.(I usually sell it in person using student board in my school). This experience was awesome. I did not have to argue with cheap asses trying to cut price down by 10 bucks on $30 book--... The process only took a week since I dropped my package at ups untill i get paid with paypal. Chegg is not the website that offers highest price, but its process was amazingly fast. I was little sceptical in the beginning but now i am worry free to have business with Chegg.com.
Here is tip tho: chegg.com has issue with re-printing the shipping lable. Eventhough it sends you a copy of shipping label to ur email, it doesn't send you the slip that should be in the box. so, save the url link when you are printing the label on their website.
|Jun 2012||I am consistently amazed and pleased at the speed and efficiency of Chegg's processing and payments. I wish all book buying companies were this good.|
|Jun 2012||received payment efficiently and quickly; fulfilled book quotes as promised and easy-to-follow instructions. a good service!|
|Jun 2012||Competitive quotes (often the highest), free UPS shipping, and prompt payment by Paypal (often within 24 hrs of delivery) make Chegg.com one of my favorite online book buyers. I highly recommend Chegg if you're looking for a stress-free transaction and are in need of money quick. Two thumbs up.|
|Jun 2012||lighting fast payment, great communication thru emails, great follow up...you name it, it's all there. 2nd time using them so def more times to go but i just wish they are buying more items if they buy more i will love to sell to them more than the others. :)|
|Jun 2012||Extraordinarily fast payer. Shipped books on Tuesday evening, books received Thursday morning and money in my paypal account Thursday afternoon. Two day pay is fantastic. I highly recommend.|
|Jun 2012||This is my (probably) third time to use Chegg.com to sell a textbook. Once again they Paypaled me the exact amount originally quoted in just three days of dropping off the package. Very reliable service and I will definitely use them agin.|
|Jun 2012||I really love this guyz when it comes to price and mailing them the books, but what i still don't understand is how to get payment from them, if by paypal i know it, but what if by check, they will tell you 5 days, but will never tell you the courier service to deliver it... still can't understand and having problems with this and dont know if i should continue selling to them.|
|Jun 2012||Incredibly fast service. If you need your money fast, Chegg is a good vendor.|
|Jun 2012||This site is the fastest (for delivery and sending payment). The process is smooth and they offer great quotes. I sold one book to them and received a paypal payment the next day. Overall just great!|
|Jun 2012||Sold my books and got exactly the price I was quoted and checks were sent to me extremely fast. I had a question on 1 and e-mailed them and they responded within 5 minutes...wonderful site...would definitely sell to them again!!|
|May 2012||Paid quickly. However they sent me 8 small checks - apparently 1 for each book sent in - instead of 1 check for the whole box i sent in. This is rather silly and inefficient on their part, not to mention more costly to them postage wise for sending 8 checks in mail vs 1 envelope.But i guess it all spends the same and I will use them again.|
|May 2012||Of all the sites chegg is the best. They may not always give top dollar but they take books that no other site will when it comes to condition add that with quick payment and they are a home run. For this I will continue to do my business through them. Only downfall is that they send a check for each book you send them instead of 1 check with the whole total.|
|May 2012||I have used textbooks, textbookrus, chegg, CKY, Amazon, ebay, cash4books and Chegg gave me my money the quickest out of everyone when using paypal.|
|May 2012||My very first time sell- back a college textbook to Chegg. Very very pleased with the fast response and quickly paid through paypal. I will definetly be using Chegg again in future. Thanks Chegg!!!|
|May 2012||i actually got thru them OK too. no nonsense such as quoted a lower price when they received it or lost in transit. should be a trusted site. keep it up please.... :)|
|May 2012||I have dealt with them and have been pleased with the results. Thanks Chegg.|
|May 2012||This was my first time selling a textbook to an online company. I couldn't be more impressed. I mailed the book on Monday and had a check for the quoted price on Saturday. Can't beat that! I just wish I had discovered Chegg sooner.|
|May 2012||They have been great to deal with. A+ in my grade book|
|Apr 2012||I love Chegg! If I need cash quickly, they're my go-to site. This week I sent a shipment on Monday and had the money in PayPal (no fees) on Thursday, for the full amount. They'll accept many books that other sites would reject too. The only thing I don't love about Chegg is their website runs scripts that clog up my computer's memory and it takes forever to load the packing list and shipping label (hopefully when I can afford a new computer I'll find the problem was on my end, not theirs, and I can love everything about Chegg).|
|Apr 2012||This company is great. They pay the price quoted. Money is in my Paypal account in a week!|
|Mar 2012||I gave them a try for the first time, and I am very satisfied with their prompt payment (in check) for the exact amount they quoted. I really don't know why they mailed me a separate check for each of the 5 or 6 books I sold to them, but everything went very smooth.|
|Mar 2012||Satisfactory in every way! If you like fast shipping, processing and payment this is the way to go! In the last month I've used 13 different vendors and Chegg is head and shoulders above 10 of them and head to head with the others.|
|Mar 2012||They provided the shipping label for print-out, they paid exactly what they said they would and sent payment by check within 2 days of receipt of the books. Simple and easy.|
