After 25 years, Title Wave Books will be updating our Trade Policies to make more sense in our modern economy and business environment.

Beginning January 1, 2020, Title Wave Books will be changing our Trade Policies in the following ways:

1. Any Trade Credit given by Title Wave Books, revised, will be usable for up to 75% of the total amount of purchase in store. The remaining 25% will need to be paid with cash or credit/debit.
Those who currently have trade credit on a yellow or white voucher will still be able to use that trade credit for up to 100% of their total purchase price until that trade credit is gone. As of January 1st, we will be issuing gray vouchers that can be used according to the new policy.

2. Title Wave Books, revised, will  be offering a cash option for book buys. Our current trade policy allows for trade credit at 25% of our resale value of the books we take in trade. Customers will now be able to opt for cash at a rate of 10% of our resale value for the books we take in trade, if they so choose.

3. Title Wave Books, revised, will now have book buying hours from 11am until 2pm, Tuesday through Saturday, by appointment ONLY. This change will allow us to be sure that we always have extra staff for  smoother and quicker transactions.

4. Title Wave Books, revised, is now offering the option of donating your trade credit to one of our local children's or educational charities. Customers will be able to donate a portion, or all, of their trade credit to one of several charities, that we will rotate throughout the year, to get books into the hands of Albuquerque kids!

We are excited with these changes, knowing that they will pave the way for new opportunities to help our community and our wonderfully supportive customers! Thank you for shopping with us for the past 25 years!
