This event is free; no tickets are required.

One of the many highlights of our fall calendar is our annual Frequent Buyer Sale, when you can get a jump-start on your holiday shopping or get a bargain on that glossy art book you've been eyeing.

The Sale: 

All day on November 2nd, Frequent Buyers receive 20% off all purchases of new, used, and remaindered books, as well as on Print on Demand titles from our database, and non-book items throughout the store (calendars, clothing, cards, chocolate, canvas bags, mugs, and more!)


Sign up for a Frequent Buyer Card BEFORE November 2nd to be eligible for the sale. Don′t worry, you don′t need to be able to track down your physical card . . . we are always happy to look your account up in the computer.

Store Hours: 

We′ll be open 9AM until 11PM (an hour earlier and an hour later than our usual Sunday hours) to give you plenty of time for bargain hunting.


Can't make it into the store? Our Frequent Buyer Sale will also be online at harvard.com! Simply use coupon code FREQUENT2014 at checkout November 2nd to receive the discount.

Please Note: 

Please note that the sale does not compound the discount on already discounted items, and that gift cards, self publishing fees, event tickets, and special orders placed before November 2nd are not included in the sale.
