Why use a beautiful pink flamingo as our mascot? Why choose a tacky lawn ornament? We're unique, kind of like a flock of flamingos.
What if we could put $50 back into the pocket of every student?
That's what Flamingo is doing.
Flamingo makes it easy for students to find textbooks being sold on campus or sell textbooks locally. Flamingo for Bookstores enables college bookstores to increase the number of used textbooks available on campus and return more money to their students through buyback.
Open the app. Search for your book. Flamingo will show you the textbooks located closest to you so you can meet on campus and exchange textbooks for cash. (Or use Venmo, PayPal, Bitcoin, or republic credits to pay... we don't mind.)
You can search by title, author, or ISBN.
It's the end of the semester and you're ready to get some cash out of your textbook. List your book in 30 seconds on Flamingo and it is available immediately to other students on campus. When a buyer is interested in your book, you'll get a notification and you can arrange to meet up on campus. Simple.
See buyback offers.
If your bookstore is a Flamingo for Bookstores partner, you can see what your local bookstore is offering for your book. If you don't want to sell your book immediately, list it. If the bookstore increases its buyback price to something closer to what you would want, we'll let you know.
We hope you enjoy using Flamingo to buy and sell textbooks!
