One of the 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 photography book you've been eyeing. All the details are below, and feel free to ask one of your friendly booksellers if you have any questions.

  • The Sale: All day on November 4th, Frequent Buyers receive 20% off all purchases of new, used, and bargain books, as well as Print on Demand titles from our database and non-book items throughout the store. 
  • Eligibility: Sign up for a Frequent Buyer Card BEFORE November 4th 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.
  • Online: The Frequent Buyer Sale will be online at harvard.com! Simply type "Frequent Buyer Sale" in the comments field of any online orders placed on November 4th to receive the discount. (The discount will not be reflected on the confirmation page, but don't worry . . . it will be applied before your card is charged.)
  • Rules: Please note that the sale does not compound the discount on already discounted items, and that self publishing fees, event tickets, and special orders placed before November 4th are not included in the sale.
