Whether you have a houseful or just a handful of items, BrightLight Books can help lighten your load and turn those items into cash or store credit. We buy gently used items from our customers every day. Store credit can be spent in all of our stores or here at BrightLightBooks.com.
Please keep in mind that due to the high volume of items brought to us we are selective about what we buy. There’s a possibility we won’t need some of what you bring.
We buy a huge variety of books, some newer textbooks, DVDs, CDs, Vinyl, and even board games.
Items in very good condition are more desirable than items with creases, tears, stains, scratches, highlighting, or underlining. Also, if we already have copies of an item we might not need more. Recently released items are more desirable than outdated items.
For most books we pay about 40% of our price in store credit or half of that credit amount in cash. For example, if we price an item at $10.00 we normally pay $4.00 in store credit or $2.00 in cash for that item.
We generally pay more than 40% for unique, high-priced or collectible books.
For most DVDs, CDs, Vinyl, and board games we pay $0.50-$3.00 in cash per item or $1.00-$6.00 in store credit per item. We might pay more for newer releases, multi-disc sets, and collectibles.
These questions and more are covered in our Store Credit FAQ.
You may bring up to 5 boxes/bins (approximately 150 - 200 items) without an appointment. If you have a larger quantity please call ahead to make arrangements.
We buy items during our open hours at our Fern Park (Casselberry) store and our Oviedo store.
We do not buy items without prior arrangement at our Overstock Center location.
Our buyers will give you a time estimate when you arrive with your items. It usually only takes 5 - 15 minutes for us to evaluate your items and present an offer. It can take longer if you have a larger number of items or if there are other customers ahead of you. Saturdays can get busy.
Yes, but if you leave the store before we present our offer and do not return by the end of the day you are agreeing to accept our offer.
Additionally, you must return the same day before we close to claim any items we didn't buy. Any items (including bags, boxes or bins your items were in) not claimed before we close will be processed or discarded and no longer available to you. If something prevents you from returning the same day call us and we will make arrangements with you.
We only travel when you have a large quantity of what we believe to be items we need. Give us a call and let us know what you have and we'll let you know if we're able to come to you.
Yes, we will gladly help you unload items from your vehicle.
No, if you don’t want the items we don't buy we will take care of them for you. This may mean sending them to our Overstock Center for our Saturday clearance sale, donating them to a local charity or otherwise disposing of them. Due to space limitations we can only hold return items until we close for the day. If you don’t want us to process or dispose of your items please return by the end of the day to pick up your returns.
