About Us

Bargain Books Wholesale is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We have thousands of books in a variety of categories from many publishers. Our inventory is comprised of remainders, hurts, returns and closeouts from the publishers. Our books are not used but may be "remainder marked" by the publisher. Returned books may have another store's sticker on them. Although we do not remove stickers prior to shipping, we have found they can be easily taken off in most cases. Bargain Books Wholesale exhibits at several trade shows each year. Please contact us if you would like to receive a trade show schedule.

Wholesale Customer Requirements

Customers must be a registered business or non-profit organization (libraries, schools, etc). US businesses and organizations are required to provide a Federal Tax ID number to establish exemption from sales tax. You may provide this number in the “Tax and Payment Info” area under “My Account.”

Minimum Order Requirement requires a minimum purchase total of $30.

New Customers

New customers are required to prepay orders by credit card or company check until credit is established. Credit card payments can be made during the checkout process. If you prefer to prepay by check, select “Ship Cheapest and Bill to Invoice” when checking out, and our Customer Service Department will contact you upon receipt of your online order.

Existing Customers

You may use a purchase order to complete online purchases. Previously established payment terms apply to online orders.

International Customers

All international customers must use a forwarding service for shipments, as we are unable to ship directly overseas. Exceptions apply for Canadian orders but customs and duties are the responsibility of the recipient.


You as the buyer pays shipping. Shipping cost is calculated based upon the following criteria:

As a general rule, orders weighing up to 200lbs will be shipped UPS Ground or USPS Media Mail. Orders over 200lbs are shipped via cheapest freight carrier. If you have an account with UPS or a freight company, we will ship collect. Otherwise shipping charges will be added to your invoice. We can also ship using the 3rd party logistics company of your choice. You must contact us at the time of your order to make 3rd party logistics arrangements. Please note that freight companies have a service charge when delivering to residential addresses; any surcharges will be added to your invoice. We require freight forwarder information for large international shipments.

Return Policy

All books are sold on an as-is, non-returnable basis. Claims for shortages must be made in writing within 15 days of receipt of goods.
