Lost your textbook rental return instructions? No problem – Flipsy shows you where to return your rented textbooks so you can avoid late fees

Textbook rentals can save a lot of cash, but they can also cost a pretty penny if you lose your return instructions and miss the deadline. Rental late fees range from the cost of a rental extension to the full price of a replacement textbook, which can total several hundred dollars. The best policy is to always make sure your textbook rentals are returned on time, but what if you’ve lost your return instructions and aren’t sure where to send your textbooks? Flipsy has the answer!

Search your email


Start by searching your email for the title of your textbook. Chances are, your textbook rental company emailed you a receipt that includes the title of the book rented, return deadline, and return instructions (or a link to instructions). You can also search for the name of the rental company.

Be sure to check all your email accounts in the event you didn’t sign up with your primary account. Keep in mind that payment services such as PayPal and Stripe might have a different email account on record than your rental company, and your return instructions might have been sent to that address.

Check your bank and/or credit card statements


If you can’t find return instructions by searching your email, check your bank account or credit card statements for the name of your rental company. Simply scan your statements around the date of purchase – it was probably just before the start of the semester – until you find the name of the company. Then, you can look up the company’s return policy online or contact them for help.
