UA BookStores Lowest Price Guarantee
Now price-matching Amazon.com!
Last Fall we implemented our newly revised Lowest Price Guarantee. The new guarantee states that we will now match the price of ANY other textbook retailer—including Amazon.com! Customers can bring in a printed screenshot, show us on their mobile devices (look for our price-matching scan tags around the store), or you'll have up to seven days to bring back a print-out of a competitively-priced book.
What does this mean for you? It means that UA BookStores is now GUARANTEED to have EVERYTHING YOU NEED for class at the MOST CONVENIENT on-campus locations at the GUARANTEED LOWEST PRICE. Seriously. Why would you shop anywhere else?
Also watch for our new price-matching tool on your Booklist to make sure you're getting the best deal on new and used textbooks, rental textbooks and eBooks.
