So how long are the BOB offers good for. I made several requests going back several weeks ago and still no word, even pm'd them and still nothing. (not complaining just kinda curious thats all)

They are good for however long you want to wait for a response. I used to give it a week when I was a boxer. I figured if they hadn't had time to respond within a week than what was the likelyhood of them having time to mail my books out in a reasonable amount of time.

I think I waited a little more than a week once, through two weekends.  I figured that was more than enough time.

It has been a while since I had a BOB account, but I believe you have to contact the people who run the site. Click on CONTACT US at the bottom of the page...

You could always ask for a deal on the books you found if you have credtis or some cash to buy them in the bazaar.  They may have looked at your shelf and not found anything of interest, although it seems polite to say no thanks.
