I check where they're going for most half or amazon and sell there. If they are the same then half wins, since they'll also list it on ebay.

Is it guaranteed that amazon will buy back your book or could they deny it?

When are they offering you 70% buyback price?
When you buy it, right? I bought a textbook on amazon and they promised me a good buyback price. When I tried to sell it back to them after my semester they literary offered me penny's for it. So I sold it myself.
