In keeping with the commitment to money-savings, MBS Direct has developed a multitude of services designed specifically for our school:

    • A Guaranteed Buyback program to help your family budget for the entire academic term and understand how much it will truly cost to own that particular textbook.
    • Used books up to 25% off the price of a new book price.
    • Customer Loyalty program for more money at buyback.

Ordering textbooks from other online vendors can be quite challenging with many uncertainties and providing you no guarantees of satisfaction. We ultimately chose MBS Direct to provide you with competitive prices for textbooks, the highest level of service, and because they can guarantee you the correct book every time you order. We strongly urge you to use MBS Direct for your textbooks to eliminate the guesswork and hassles associated with ordering. Visit to get started.
