    I ain't ususally like this, but I'm taking some wack elective Nutrition course and paid 200$ + tax for this thick text with all the trimmings (studyguides, online access codes). For some reason I think I either got screwed and didn't get an access code for the book's website or I threw it away byaccident. I emailed my prof as well as the book publisher and they are both telling me to take the L and purchase ANOTHER code for 40$ This got me kindaheated, how easy is it to just go to the bookstore, rip open the shrink wrap and jack another code. You think I have a good reason to be heated? They can atleast give me a discount....I'm sure the publisher has some kind of system to find out that I actually did purchase a book and did not redeem it, I thinkthey are jus tryna come up on me for some more cash thinking students are rich in this economy ...

    I don't know man. It looks like it's easy but be careful because the easier you think it is, the tougher it turns out to be.

    always browse online first. Doesnt the code come within the book itself.

    If its an elective just drop the course and sell the book/return it if the grace period is still open.

    EDIT: Seeing that its this late in the semester (5th week) the university bookstore is going to ship all the unsold books back to the publisher.

    I might just chalk up ANOTHER L this week (see UPS thread conning me out some more cash) and pay for another code online. Grace period is over...it's wackcause the course didn't use the website until like 7th week in [​IMG], if it was earlier I might've been able to find it in my garbage or go back to thebookstore and BS

    I don't condone stealing, but if you just need to take the access code out the book it doesn't sound like it would be that difficult.

    i used to work at the campus bookstore.. you gotta be pretty slick.. theres too many cameras and students undercover working security..

    we caught a lot of people and a majority of them .. it was their first offense and they didnt get kicked out.. they did get disciplinary probation for a yearand paid a fine though

    You're a liar... I stole my books from the bookstore every yr starting from 2nd sems soph yr through my masters program. And it wasn't that I couldn't afford to buy them because I could. I just didn't agree with being ho'd. You buy a book brand new for 100cash, you return it they offer you 35-45cash for it (if they decide to bring it back) then turn around and sell it used for 65-70cash. So they've made 120-135 of that same book for two semesters. and you're out of 55-65....

    Sorry but that wasn't my type of math. [​IMG][​IMG]



    Feel ya.

    Why don't you just go to the bookstore and tell them that it never came with one and you want to exchange it?

    I've heard of people taking stuff but they have those lil metal stickers that are in some cd's and will set of the metal detectors, so look out forthat. Once I just needed the code too and I went and said "the code didn't work" and hoping they'd refund it but they just gave me another 1,which I sold.

    My boy stole books from BCC every semester and he didnt even go to school!

    Cats would just give him a list of their classes and he would scoop up all the textbooks and just walk out.
    Dudes would shoot him a few dollars for the trouble and it was a done deal.

    I've never stolen a book myself tho, I just dont buy them.
