Who doesn’t love a contest? Judging from the response to our eCampus.com K-12 Textbook Buyback Giveaway, it’s safe to say NO ONE! Giving away a Nintendo Switch and a total of $750 in textbook scholarships was an attention grabber for sure, resulting in thousands of entries. How did our customers enter? That was the easy part. Any eCampus.com K-12 Online Bookstore customer who sold back at least one textbook online through their school-specific bookstore from May 14, 2020 – July 15, 2020 became eligible to win.  

Let’s face it, this year has been unpredictable. It’s no surprise schools were forced to pivot how they handled textbook buyback events this spring given the COVID-19 pandemic. For eCampus.com partner schools, it was a seamless transition from onsite to online buybacks since their bookstores were already online with a customized storefront. Still, eCampus.com was committed to finding ways to make the textbook buyback process a more rewarding one – so, why not give away some free textbooks and a Nintendo Switch in the process? 

The giveaway was open to any student currently enrolled at an eCampus.com K-12 partner institution, which encompasses hundreds of schools. Students and families were happy to sell back textbooks from the comfort and safety of their homes and make some extra cash in the process. By selling at least one textbook online, students were automatically entered to win a $250 textbook scholarship and the free Nintendo Switch. 

The contest response was overwhelmingly positive and we are happy to celebrate our winners!

So, who was the lucky grand prize winner? Congratulations goes to Anaston Ragsdale from Mount Paran Christian School in Kennesaw, Georgia. Ragsdale was randomly selected from thousands of entries and is the proud new owner of a FREE Nintendo Switch.

“We’ve always had a good experience with our eCampus.com Online Bookstore,” said Brenda Ragsdale, Anaston’s mother. “The textbooks come quickly and we’ve also had a positive experience selling back our textbooks at the end of the year.” An eCampus.com partner since 2019, Mount Paran Christian School’s Online Bookstore is where students are able to take advantage of a 24/7 online bookstore offering the guaranteed right course materials with free shipping promotions. 

In addition to the grand prize winner, additional winners were selected to receive a $250 textbook scholarship, including the Kozak family from Notre Dame Preparatory School in Towson, Maryland and Beth L. from Marian High School in Omaha, Nebraska. 

“eCampus makes the process of purchasing my books SO easy,” says Beth. “They have all of my classes listed and let me know quickly what textbooks and digital downloads I’ll need and whether it’s cheaper to buy used, new or through their marketplace. I love the confirmation email with photos of each item so I can confirm when I receive them.”
