May 2017 Outstanding Transaction, 5 Stars in every aspect! Site is easy to use. Excellent customer service and very fast response to my inquiry by email. Superfast payment after items were received and inspected! Highly recommend CYK Books!
May 2017 Worked as it should. I sent books off to 6 vendors last Saturday (I work a friends of the library group). CKY was the first to let me know the check was in the mail.
May 2017 This was the first time I worked with CKY Books through BookScouter.com. Everything was easy - from the offer process to shipping to payment. I recommend them.
May 2017 Went smoothly. All is well.
May 2017 Smooth transaction (start to finish)! Books arrived.....checked in next business day...payment issued within a couple hours of check in. 5 Stars!!
May 2017 This is my first time doing this and I was not sure which company to use. Based on the reviews, I decided to use this company and I have not regretted. CKY books is the best one out there. You are notified when they receive the books and also when they pay you. You will definitely not regret.
May 2017 Fast paid shipping, same day review and payment issued! Email communication and updates were provided from start to finish. 5 stars!
Apr 2017 Thank you for a smooth and seamless transaction.
Apr 2017 very satisfied with this company buying my books
Apr 2017 From the time I sent in books to the time I got paid was about a week. Very fast process, no shipping fees, excellent communication and no waiting for a week or two from the time they receive the books to when you get paid. Sad to say I don't have any other books I can sell that they need right now.
Apr 2017 What a marvelous experience I had with CKY Books. I added the books they'd purchase to my cart; I received my shipping label, packaged my books and took them to FedEx; I received email confirmation when the package arrived & when the books were being processed. Then, I received email notice that my payment had been made. All of this in 4 days! Wow!
Apr 2017 excellent will be dealing with them again.
Apr 2017 Fastest turnaround from when I shipped the books to you receiving them, inspecting them and then sending a check. Thank you so much. Can't wait to receive the check.
Apr 2017 Super fast shipping, processing and payment. Great vendor.

Mar 2017 I have used CKY several times and have always received payment within a week. I am very pleased with their service, and will continue to do business with them.
Mar 2017 CKY Books provides great service! They gave reasonable prices for books, provided free shipping, and were prompt in giving feedback on how the review process was going. They stuck to the prices that they quoted me on initially and from the moment they received the books, it took them a day to process everything until the point of payment. Will definitely use them again.
Feb 2017 Great website. Everything was fast and it's very easy to use website
Feb 2017 No hassle at all! It was a quick and easy shipment and they are getting back to me with my payment method as soon as possible! I would highly recommend to friends because the payment for the book I sold here had the highest slur out of all the sites I looked at.
Feb 2017 I absolutely love working with CKY Books. They pay top dollar and very fast shipping and payment. I will continue selling my books to CKY Books.

Feb 2017 Very fast, and keeps you notified throughout the process.
Feb 2017 AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE! Got a quote instantly which gave me the most for my book. I printed a shipping label (provided by them for free), dropped it off, and had the full amount sent to my paypal within 2 days. Definitely doing all my business with CKY from now on!

Jan 2017 I sold my kids' high school and college books to 3 different buy back companies, and CKY was first to respond that they had received my books and that payment was sent. Great fast service, but does require a min $20 in buy backs.
Jan 2017 CKY Books did an excellent job after they received the books I sent them. I mailed books to four other companies around the same time and CKY Books have out done them all. Thanks CKY Books you all ROCK!!!
Jan 2017 Fair offer. Quick processing. No games. Easy transaction.
Jan 2017 The service was quick! I printed off my free shipping label and packaging inventory and drove to Fed Ex. Within days all of my money was deposited in my Pay Pal account.
I chose this service over others because of their positive feedback. There was another buy back company that offered just a bit more, however, their customer's reviews were saying they were not being paid what they promised.
Jan 2017 Each aspect of the buyback process through CKY Books was quick, easy, and efficient. Thanks, CKY, for top-of-the-line service.

I received an email saying they received my order followed immediately by another email saying that they inspected my order.

The next day, I got an email from paypal saying that CKY had sent me the agreed upon amount and an email from CKY saying that the payment was issued. Then I spent all the money.

Sep 2016 I highly recommend this Book Depo. They paid me in a timely fashion and assisted me with any questions I had.
Sep 2016 Great customer service!
Sep 2016 I love CKY Books! When I tried selling books to a different company, I was only going to get $7. I got $60 back from CKY and it was a very simple and quick process. They kept me updated on the process the whole time too, which I liked. I will definitely be selling books to them again!
Sep 2016 Great company! I was very disappointed when my book was not approved because it didn't have a back cover but I contacted the company and they were awesome and willing to work with me by going out of their way to find me a back cover and buy it back! I'm truly impressed at how customer oriented this company is. College books are expensive and usually I can't sell them back so I was up in arms about it because I had bought the book online originally and I didn't even recall it had a back cover. Most companies would not care or give it a second thought but they really went out of their way to get a back cover and buy the book back. Really great company I cannot emphasize that enough, they have earned repeat service from me.
Sep 2016 Very good service.
Aug 2016 Great response and flexibility.
Aug 2016 Excellent communication! Paid within a week of shipment and as quoted.

Jul 2016 CKY Books are great!! Highly recommended !!
Jul 2016 Prompt and efficient service--and they are very kind---it feels like you are doing business with a friend! Thanks CKY!
Jul 2016 I have used other sell back companies over the years, and most of them have failed to follow through. They would either keep the books and use a lame excuse for doing so (unethical business practices) or they would fail to offer the amount promised. CKY Books restored my faith in the sell back process as they gave me what they promised, and the process was quick and painless. I will definitely use them for the duration I am in grad school...you guys have 3 more years to do business with me. Thank you.
Jun 2016 Courteous...professional....and FAST! I can't wait to do more business with this great service.

May 2016 I love CKY Books! I have sent four orders to them in the past year, and they are prompt and easy to work with. The second time I used them I had trouble with getting the printing label, and since they had the same issue, they created a new order for me and the problem was solved within a day. If you read their condition guidelines, you shouldn't have any trouble. None of my books have been rejected.
May 2016 5/5 stars! I was expecting a hard time having my book sold with a company but you turned out to be the best one to sell it too! You were fast on issuing payment the same day you received my book which means no hassles and I like that. Definitely will use you again!

Feb 2016 I am very, very, very pleased with my experience with CKY books and i will definitely be doing business with this company in the future. Their site was super easy to use, they were SUPER fast with payments and they paid exactly as was quoted. I took my books to the post office on January 30, and by February 3rd i got an email saying they had received my books, they have completed inspections, and they have issued my payment. By February 8th my check was waiting in my mail box. I was surprised at the speed because i am not that close to Kentucky (where they are located) and the entire process took roughly 9 days. Overall a great experience. THANK YOU CKY :) 5 stars
Feb 2016 This was so easy!

Feb 2016 CKY Books is the best in the business. I have never had any problems in selling my textbooks to them. They are always fast and process everything as soon as they get the shipment.

CKY Books Response:
Hello again. As we have explained numerous times through emails, photos and MUCH correspondence, your check was returned to us by the post office due to:

"Insufficient Address"

You did not give us your complete mailing address.
When you leave your apartment number off, the post office is sometimes not sure where to find you.

It would be nice if BookScouter had a place to attach a photo link so vendors could use opportunities like this to help educate their users.

Jan 2016 Easy to use, fair price on most books. Printed a label, put it in a box, and had a payment 3 days later.
Jan 2016 No problems and quick processing.
Jan 2016 Awesome. So easy. No haggling.
Jan 2016 Super fast payment. Very easy to use.
Jan 2016 I've been selling to CKY for a couple of years now, and they really are absolutely top notch. My books were processed with hours of delivery. And I got emails for both delivery notification, processing notification, and for getting paid. I sent out shipments to 5 different sellers, and they were hands down the fasted of any of them, with perfectly decent payout to boot.
Jan 2016 First time user. Will do again.

Jan 2016 CKY.com is the best place to make a quick buck off of your no longer needed text books! I’ve sold numerous of my textbooks to them and I’ve NEVER had an issue. They’ve always offered me the best price for my books I would not look to sell anywhere else! The faculty was so efficient in making sure I got my money! There was never a communication issue; I was always receiving emails, when my book was received, when my book passed inspection, and even when my payment was mailed out! CKY has never disappointed me! I love them!
Jan 2016 I have consistently been happy with selling books here. I sell them a box every few months without any problems.

Dec 2015 Wow ..... All I can say is they are super fast at processing! Great job and you guys will be my 1 st choice when I sell my books back for next semester! It didn't even take 24 hrs from the time I shipped my book for it to be inspected and my refund to be issued and that is something I have never experienced with any company I have sold item to! Keep up the hard work!
Dec 2015 I sent a book on Sept 8th and never received a check, emailed and called with no response back. Its now Dec 26th have sent another email waiting for a reply back ,but will I get one who knows ? Sorry to say this wasn't a good experience for me.

Sep 2015 Do not sell or buy books from CKY Books! I gathered 5 books from my classmates and mailed them in, all in new or barely used shape. Now they're not reimbursing me for 2 of the books claiming "torn/loose/broken" binding. Absolutely ridiculous. We cracked those books maybe twice! You couldn't even tell the books had been even opened! I have never had a problem with any of the vendors on this site until CKY Books.
Aug 2015 Extremely fast payment by check or paypal.
Jul 2015 Very easy to use and payment was super fast for books sold. Can't ask for more than that. A+++

They pay well and they pay the fastest of any companies out there.
Thanks for helping me pay my bills.
Jun 2015 I have used CKY for several buybacks. The payment is the fastest of any book buyback company and the level of continuous communication is outstanding. Highly recommend.
