You get 17% of the original price of your book in credit.
You can use that credit to pay for 60% of your purchases.
You end up paying only 40% of our already low price.
Your credit never goes away. You can use it any time for anything in the store or to order books online.
You bring in a book that you have already read.
The cover price that is printed on the book is $10.
We give you $1.70 in credit. (17% of the cover price)
You pick out a book that you would like to read.
The total comes to $5.
Your cost with credit is $5.00 - $3.30 (66% off) = $1.70 + tax
You can return the book you purchased for credit - $1.70
Your total cost for the book = $0.
No matter how much credit you have, you still have to pay 33% of our price. That's so we get some cash to pay the bills.
