Nov. 6, Elmhurst, Ill. – After six years with another vendor, IC Catholic Prep has chosen to re-partner with MBS Direct due to the variety of cost-saving features and personalized customer service.

Originally partnered with MBS Direct several years ago, IC Catholic has again chosen MBS Direct for textbook fulfillment, and just completed their first term back with an MBS Direct Virtual Bookstore in fall 2014.

MBS Direct provides students with a Virtual Bookstore with features designed to guarantee students get the course materials they need when they need them, all for an affordable price. These features include:

• 24/7 Customer Care Center: Resolves 99.9 percent of customer issues and is available to students by phone, email and live chat.

• Marketplace: Allows savings of up to 95 percent by connecting students with private vendors.

• Digital Books: Students can save up to 80 percent off the list price. Plus students can lighten their load by accessing their books on almost any device.

• Guaranteed Buyback: Unique to MBS Direct. Informs students of the exact amount they will receive for selling their textbooks back at the end of the academic term, saving them up to 70 percent.

• Rental: Upfront savings up to 60 percent off of list price.

• Used Books: Offers up to 25 percent off of the list price and possibly available to sell back during buyback.

“MBS Direct was willing to do more for us than other companies,” said Cindy Thomas, Bookstore Moderator at IC Catholic. “Our client rep, Courtney Haas, was outstanding. She was very efficient, kind and courteous. No question was too little. I can’t say enough for her.”
