I get alot of deals on book bazzar so i over looked if one out of the 4 came in with some flaws but it seems it's happening more and more I don't want to mark these recieved with problems but there is a rule about not posting books with highlighting or underlining so I shouldn't be getting any. I don't want to be ungrateful because i recognise I do get great deals but I would be really mad if i had paid a full credit for a book that was all marked up. I don't know how to let these people know they shouldn't post these books on their shelf without making them feel like I'm being petty.

Just send a gentle reminder saying one of the books was marked up and you do not wish them to loose credits in the future for sending books like that out..And send the rule from the Help section that deals with it.  Or else they need to be listing them in the book bazzar as unpostables.   Since you cannot repost the book due to the rules, you should ask for the credit back since the book was listed on the bookshelf rather then a freebie/unpostable.

I don't know if I would ask for a credit back if I got a deal on them.  But I would send a PM and politely remind them of the posting guidelines and let them know that some of the book were unpostable.  Even books sent in a deal should all be postable unless specifically offered as unpostable freebies.   So you could try asking for your credit back.  You could even mark them RWP and fill in that it was a book deal and 3 of the 4 books were unpostable.
