I am so happy you guys finally got an App! I’ve been waiting so long by far one of the best and quickest book websites I’ve ever used. Have like pretty much every book I’ve ever looked for. ❤️
Absolutely obsessed with thriftbooks 5/5
I first heard about thriftbooks.com one Sunday morning during our church service. Our pastor was really excited to share a book with us and mentioned that he was able to get the book from thriftbooks.com. Now, I am an avid reader. I love books. I especially love used books. I’m not going to complain (like some people have) about folded corners, slightly torn pages, or even stains. If the words are readable then the book was lived and is still lovable. There’s something about receiving a used and (almost) slightly battered book that was once loved by another. Maybe I romanticize too much but let’s talk about thriftbooks.com. First of all the app is wonderful. It’s easy to use and very straight forward. After my first order I looked up how long shipping usually takes and was sort of scared. A few people complained about their orders taking forever to arrive. All my orders, however, have arrived within 10 days or so. I get so happy and as do my kids (I order a lot of children’s books for them) when we see the green packages in the mailbox! So thank you thriftbooks for great service!
11/10 would recommend! 5/5
All of the books i have purchased (around 15 so far), i have been nothing less than satisfied with! All of the books have been in excellent condition. I recommend to anyone who LOVES books, but HATES breaking their bank account.
No cancelations on new I shipped books! 1/5
Fun fact: you have to wait for the book to Ship, get to you, and then send it back instead of canceling the order if it’s a new book! Yay!!!
Surprisingly excellent 5/5
Seeing all the reviews as so negative and all made me doubt Thriftbooks. After ordering on mobile and giving them a chance y’all are just really unlucky. I ordered 12 books, all in either “Good” edition or above, for 45 bucks.
Let’s start with shipping. Placed the ordered on Wednesday and all them were accepted and shipped out the next day. One book was from Maryland which is near my state for it came Monday, which is like 3 business days. The rest are from facilities towards the West coast so it took extra days and I got them all today, which is 6 business days. Tracking the packages from different states were up to date and the t asking number was available within 24 hours. Considering that fact I got free shipping AND they said it was a 4-8 business day shipping duration AND reliable tracking, let’s just say shipping is 5/5.
Now on to quality. All 12 books came intact and they were exactly what I ordered. Obviously some were old and had yellow pages but that was pretty much it. No spine breaking, stains, ripped pages or whatsoever damages. Honestly the “worst” book I got was slightly blended, which was probably because of the packaging, but quality wise they exceed the quality that their condition said they were. There are stickers in which they but on the spine on book but it’s really easy to take off and aren’t that sticky to the book to the point it will rip off the spine covering.
This was my first time ordering on Thriftbooks app and I’m just really satisfied and amazed by their service. I guess I was lucky compared to most customers that have used this website in the past year. However, for my experience with ThriftBooks it’s been a pleasure and I hope others would have the same experience too.
ThriftBooks has been amazing so far! I use it to get a head start on all of my required English books. I swear I have too many of them. I especially love the free shipping on orders over $10! I’ve only had one problem with a book, but they responded to my email the same day and offered a full refund. I also really like the textbooks that they offer here, I was able to get all my textbooks for my high school senior year for under $30! I don’t think I could find a better place to get hardcover books in good condition for under $5
Been looking for an app with an scanner!! 4/5
So far this App is amazing! I can use my camera to access the scanner to scan the EAN-to find out reviews of books, the various values of a book-price ranges they have for used to new! The overview of the story and how others rated it. Thus far I’m very impressed!
Best Place To Buy Cheap Books!! 5/5
If you are looking for a place to buy books either for school or for your own leisure this is definitely the app/website for you! I’ve been using thrift books for about 2 years and have bought about 11 books total! I am never dissatisfied with what I receive and the quality is always excellent! Thanks Thrift Books for all the great deals!! (Bonus if you look up coupons online you can get even more taken off the final price!)
Has its flaws but makes up for them 5/5
By Pics art rules
I’ve been using ThriftBooks for about a year now, and usually the books are in good condition when I get them. I recently received a book that was covered in annotations, to the point where it was hard to read, so I called their customer service and received a full refund and was offered a new copy of the book. Their customer service is wonderful and the books are so cheap that you can hardly complain. I strongly recommend this app!
Happy Happy Bookworm 5/5
Fast shipping, books are exactly how I order (two very goods and one like new). free Shipping! Bought the whole trilogy for $14. I’m a very happy bookworm and most definitely will make another purchase soon!
Equivalent to website 3/5
The app and website are essentially the same. App isn’t iPad friendly and there is some issues with staying signed in on mobile. I would recommend using chrome to access thrift books. Have bought a large number of books here and have been satisfied with the condition and price. Remember to check the description of how the quality system works for sorting books into their “condition”.
Needs updating 1/5
Crashes like crazy. Haven't gotten to use it in awhile. I use the desktop version instead .😕
Needs iPad optimization 4/5
I like using this app, and have purchased many books through it....my only issue is that sometimes I use my iPad Pro and this app isn’t optimized for iPads yet. So i get that weird fat looking version that is not as fun to use unless I’m on the phone.
Hope that developers are able to make that update so i can give it the 5* i think it deserves.
Book lovers Get this App! 5/5
If you love to read, you need this app. I love Thrift Books! They have a huge selection & my orders arrive quickly. I have never gotten a book that was poor quality. I now buy all my books through Thrift Books.
PayPal 👎 1/5
My PayPal does not want to work on this app. At first I thought it was my PayPal account but when I went to another app to purchase something(Tillys) it worked. I already refreshed the page and nothing, deleted the app and installed it again and nothing still. I am very disappointed... I was really looking forward to read my books in my cart.
Frozen for days... 2/5
This App is just frozen and wont update information, what is this???
ThriftBooks is my favorite! 5/5
I love ThriftBooks. They have good quality books for cheap (Around $4.) Shipping is only about a $1 for each book and once you reach a certain amount in your cart you get free shipping! I find books on ThriftBooks that I can’t find in my local store, or books that are cheaper compared to other sites. I’ve never had a problem with ThriftBooks and will continue to use it in the future.
Like New... I think not! 3/5
First let me say the app is wonderful. Haven’t had any problems. Ordered on Monday received on Saturday. I live in Arizona so most of facilities are not that far from me.
So I made my first purchase... I bought 8 different types of books. The thing with this is you can’t see the books or SMELL them!!!
I bought hard cover books. I also bought a variety of books so that I can see what condition each of the books were in by their standards.
I bought 2 like new books. Only one of them was like new. The other one had highlights throughout the book.
Now the one that really bothered me was the fact that they would ship a book that smells like Mold. It smells like it was stored in wet moldy basement. This was the very good condition book. Very disappointed. My other very good condition book looks like some spilled something on the front cover of the book.
Finally the good condition book was in better condition than the like new book, despite the highlights in the book.
I’m a serious book collector.
If I pick a book that’s like new. I would think that’s what I would receive. I’m scared to pay anything more than $4.99 for the books they have. I have books that’s $79 in my wish list... but I would refuse to pay that much for a book and get anything less than new. Don’t like markings in my books. Dust jacket needs to look like it was stored on a bookshelf and not a garage. Very disappointed with first purchase.
Locked up 2/5
By Ticked about ads
Tried to order after setting up my account and it locked up. Still waiting for it to stop the spinning clock after an hour.
By Big Time Rushbekka
I have Amazon Prime, and to get a new book on here compared to Amazon, its much more expensive. I was hoping it would be cheap books both new and hardcover, but it wasn’t. I could probably get books at target cheaper too because most of their books are always 20% off. Unless you don’t want new books or hardcover then this is the app for you.
Technical Issue! 5/5
I love thrift books! It is my first go-to place to find great books in great condition for a great price! I am,however, having a problem with your app. I like to print out invoices when I order books and the print button is there but does not seem to be working. Also, I did not notice a spot on the app to actually send a message to thrift books, so I am presenting my problem here. Thank you for your amazing service! Never disappointed!
Won't even open 1/5
As soon as I open the app and see the initial app loading screen, it immediately crashes. Every. Single. Time. Just horrible. It's sad because I love the website.
Password issues 1/5
Can’t sign in what’s going on with this app? When I enter my password that area just goes blank 🤷🏽♀️
Love thrift books. Ordered at least 20 books so far using the app. Quality service.
By Drewbie D, The Referee!
Like any other person probably, I had my doubts. I thought the prices were too good to be true. BUT... I ordered my books and got them within a week!! I saved so much money AND didn’t have to pay shipping!!! Totally recommend!
Shipping headaches cancel out the book savings 1/5
Shipping is nuts...books have been sitting in a facility 2 states away for 4 days. Great overall idea, app was working for me just fine, but watching your books just sit in a warehouse for days is very frustrating and not worth the few dollars I saved by purchasing the books used. My city library can get inter-library loan copies of any title within 3-7 days. That is much quicker than the shipping method thriftbooks is currently using.
App stopped working 1/5
It's a great site with cheap books and my only complaint is (even after updating) the app keeps shutting me out. It won't open.
Great customer service 5/5
Love it for affordable books and easy check out and shipping with deals available. They may not have the most available at that given time but you can check back periodically. The customer service makes up for anything that may be lacking. Great customer service goes along way! Very pleased with all my experiences with them!
when ever I try to open the app it closes and takes me back to the home screen!!
I ordered three books off of this app and they came within the expected arrival time, you also get free standard shipping with orders over $10. It is totally worth it to download this app and it has great deals! Happy holidays!
Can’t login to app 1/5
Quintuple-checked to make sure it wasn’t a PEBCAK error. I used to work tech support for a computer graphics software company eons ago: yes, my phone was on; yes, my WiFi and cellular data were turned on; yes, my internet/cellular bills are paid; etc, etc.
Bugs like these happen. So I go to the ‘Help & Support’ page and click on ‘Contact customer support’ to find there’s no option to submit an app-specific problem (although you can make a website suggestion? - From the app?!?) Again, bugs and poor UX happens, so now I click on the app’s back arrow to return to ‘Help & Support’... and it doesn’t work. At least the top level nav menu works. Ugh. Fix your app.
Do NOT recommend! 1/5
The prices are good, but the shipping is ridiculous. I live just a few states over and it has been sitting in the same facility waiting to be picked up for 4 days!!! The shipping company OSM is slow and customer service is terrible. All of there rating on the better business bureau are negative I will not be doing any more business with this company unless there shipping partner is changed to either UPSP or STAMPS. Any company that ships using OSM I don’t recommend unless u like waiting weeks for your package which should have only took a few days... do yourself a favor and do your business else where!
Great app. Needs improvement though 4/5
Apple Pay feature needed.
Update is a bust 1/5
I finally updated the app and it won't even open. Please fix this ASAP. The app won't even open...
Landscape and iPad Support NEEDED!!!!!! 1/5
Seriously, why can't this app be updated to support an iPad???? Practically everyone who owns an iPhone also owns an iPad. I don't do online shopping on my phone. I use my iPad for that. It's very aggravating that I can't use my iPad like I SHOUL be able to.
Love this business! 5/5
Such a great company! Their customer service is always helpful and super friendly, the book selections are great-I can usually always find what I’m looking for, the shipping is awesome and doesn’t take too long and I really appreciate all their email recommendations on similar books that match my preferences that they think I might like. Such great service! Thank you!
I love this app and I love this site! ❤️ 5/5
They have amazing deals and the delivery time is awesome! I wish I had more time to read all these books I order, I just can't pass a good deal 😁😁.... there's something for everyone....
Thanks ThriftBooks! 🙂
Great app 5/5
Time saving. Can do from my phone if I am out and about verses waiting till I get access to a computer.
Why is this even necessary? 2/5
This app has the exact same features the website does and is designed so similarly you cannot even tell the difference. The only difference between the app and the website is that the app keeps signing me out.😡😡😡
I was hoping that I would be able to see my orders more clearly instead of having to click five different links to get to one shipment. I wanted to see all the books I've ordered on one page and maybe notifications from the app for when my order ships would be nice but it doesn't seem to do that either. I don't really see a reason why I should keep this app on my phone when the website has the same exact features and even works better.
Love the deals but.. 3/5
The deals on Thrift Books are an absolute steal. I can get some of my favorites for only around 3.00$. But the app itself is kind of bad. When I delete something from my cart, the app doesn't subtract that amount from the total cost. And the coupon for the first purchase wasn't right. It said 15% off of your first purchase but it only took off around 1-2%. Please fix this!! Love the books still
Great quality of books. No limits! Unfortunately, i never stop buying from this place!
By User 😜
No other words. It's simply amazing.
Cheap Books! 5/5
Get just about any book for a great price! Sometimes the books have writing in them, but usually they are in great shape!
It's so good ! 5/5
By Marisela Brooks
I like how I can get good books really cheap 😁
I love ThriftBooks! 5/5
I just received my first order from them and was hoping for them to have an app. I'm so happy they made one
Good App but..... 3/5
By Step D.
I really like the app but it keeps freezing up. Especially when I go to the my account tab and try to look a my orders. It also logged me out. Other than that I really like the app!
I have been waiting forever 5/5
So happy they have an app love this site now it's easier to get my books very happy

#Blessed 💎 5/5
