The deals are good most of the time, but occasionally, you'll get a book that's in less than even "acceptable" condition when you selected "very good." So far, Thriftbooks has refunded the orders when this problem crops up. The app itself is very clunky and outdated. It took 3 tries to place an order because the text boxes wouldn't allow text input. The search function often transports you to the bottom of the current page instead of searching when you press enter. It's unpleasant to use.

The app itself is lovely, the deals are great and there are tons of books and lots of options for pricing as well. The only downside has been the time it takes to get an order once it's been placed. It takes DAYS for the order to process and get shipped, from payment to doorstep it takes a week or more. Pretty ridiculous when you're paying for shipping and other sites can get you your items within a day or two from point of purchase. So there's room for improvement, but overall I love this app.

I was looking for a 3 book trilogy that I read in the mid '80s. Turns out, it's now a 10 book series. I needed all 10 but they're out of print and hard to find. ThriftBooks found 9/10 for me. Placed one order and they came from different locations all over the country in only 7 days. Made it super easy. The only "complaint" I have is the condition rating on some. I ordered good or very good for each, but 3 came in fairly poor condition. Easy to order, good prices, fast shipping. Will use again.
