General questions about access codes
What is a course code or course key?

A course code or course key is generally provided by an instructor, in addition to the access code you purchase. For some products you will not be able to access the content without the course key. After purchasing an access code, Amazon will e-mail you redemption instructions for the online content.

What are access codes?

Access codes are used for online content that services a variety of needs (examples: locked content, tests, learning supplements). Access codes are often single-use, and therefore, if a customer has already redeemed the code, any subsequent purchaser or renter of that used copy may not have access.

Why should I purchase an access code separately if I’m buying a used textbook?

If an access code does accompany the textbook, it has most likely been used by a previous customer since the book is used.

Why should I purchase an access code separately if I’m renting a textbook?

Textbook rentals are often books that have been previously used. If an access code does accompany the textbook, it has most likely been used by a previous rental customer.

What should come with a bundle in new condition?

A textbook in new condition should include everything described on the detail page in working order, including any access codes.

Finding my access code
Why is searching by ISBN recommended?

Using an ISBN search is the most accurate way to get to your book or access code.

How do I identify whether a specific title comes with an access code?

The title and product description should specify if the new product includes an access code, although access codes are not guaranteed on rentals and used orders.

My school has a specific courseware version, how do I find the book or access code?

Before you purchase, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. Several versions of books or access codes can exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a course code or course key, provided by your instructor, to register for and use online tools via access code.

Contacts for access codes
What do I do if the product I purchased does not include a working access code?

If it’s a new condition bundle, please contact Customer Service. If it’s a rental or in used condition, please purchase your assigned access code separately, as these items do not include access codes.

My friend and I ordered the same textbook rental and access codes package on the same day. He/she received it, but I didn’t. What should I do?

Please check order and shipping status under My Account.

How do I activate an access code? Who should I contact if there’s a problem with my code?

You should follow the instructions given with your access code. Please contact Customer Service if you have problems with your code.
