What is a Promo Code?

A Promo Code is an alphanumeric code that appears on a catalog or flyer, or can be printed near your name and address and is used to track promotions and interest, and may entitle you to special discount pricing or other offers. Information collected from these codes assists us in planning future promotions. (When entering a Promo Code, keep in mind that 0 = zero and the 1 = one.)

Can I place an order online without a Promo Code?

If you are not currently receiving our catalogs or flyers and do not have a Promo Code, you may leave this field blank and proceed with your order.

What payment options can I use when placing an order online?

We accept Discover, Master Card, and Visa.

What if I receive damaged or defective books?

Should you notice damage, please report to us at (800) 282-1865, ext. 1, to arrange for replacement copies and instructions on how to return the damaged product for credit.
