Savings add up at University Bookstore

The savings are outrageous during the University Bookstore’s faculty and staff appreciation day, says marketing manager Martin Deck. 

All UWindsor employees are eligible for a discount on Friday, December 16—10 percent off all purchases, excluding course materials, textbooks and computers. Giftware and board games were already reduced, and the discounts multiply.

“By combining the 10 percent discount with our half-priced sale books, customers can save 60 percent off the already-reduced prices,” Deck said.

He points to two books by General Rick Hiller, Leadership: 50 Points of Wisdom for Today’s Leaders and the number-one national bestseller, A Soldier First.

Originally published at $32.99, Leadership was marked down to $10.99. The half-off sale reduced it to $5.50. With Friday’s employee discount, that’s down to $4.95. Similarly, the soft-cover A Soldier First went from $19.99 to $2.70.

Gift ideas include The Complete Canadian Living Cookbook, more than 40 pages of kitchen-tested recipes that started at $35 but is available Friday for $4.40, and W. Timothy Gallwey’s The Inner Game of Golf, originally published at $35.95, but marked down to $7.99 and on sale for $3.20.

“Last time round, one guy came in and bought gifts for his daughter’s friends,” Deck said. “He bought five copies of Spy Files: Secret Agents, each published at $6.95. By the time he combined our sale prices, he got all five for $3.50 total!”
