As a member of Kraket you can buy your study books with a discount! On this page you can find out how you can buy books with us and how it all works.
Sales in the Kraket room
In the Kraket room you can always drop by during opening hours to buy books (and to take part in a game of course). Ask someone from the board if they can help you with buying the books. You can easily pay with a PIN payment.
Sales in the VU Bookstore
You don’t want to have a chat with that one board member who is so annoying? Just don’t want to come all the way to the eighth floor? Or do you only have cash with you? No problem, you can buy the books at the same discount in the VU Bookstore. Show your Kraket sticker (which you can get in the Kraket room) at the cash desk and take advantage of the discount! You can pay with cash or by using a debit card.
Now it is also possible to purchase your books online with the Kraket discount. Go to https://kraket.vuboekhandel.nl/app/index.p?language=4 for this. Create an account quickly, order online and have your books delivered at home! You can pay online via iDeal. You can also buy used books online.
Second-hand book sales
Since last year, Kraket also sells and purchases second-hand books. This service will not be offered in the Kraket room, but online! Via https://kraket.vuboekhandel.nl/app/wtagbcre.p?language=4 you can easily sell your second-hand books. Just enter the ISBN-13 number of your book to see if it is possible to sell this specific title. After you have filled in your personal information, your book will be offered for sale. Only when we have found a buyer for your book you have to hand it in. You can do this at the VU Bookstore, where you immediately receive your money! To buy second-hand books, visit click https://kraket.vuboekhandel.nl/app/index.p?language=4 and click "Order". Next, choose your study programme. If there is a second-hand version available for a certain book, you'll see the second-hand price underneath the regular price. Check this box to order the second-hand version.
