How to Redeem a Coupon Code at Biblio
Biblio features thousands of books every day. When you search for a specific book, you'll find all copies available for sale. The site then lets you select which one you want to buy, though you should keep in mind that some books may have only one copy for sale. When you finish adding books to your cart, click the cart icon or link at the upper right of the page. This takes you to the checkout page and lets you select how you want to pay. You can pay with a secure PayPal account, a debit card or a credit card.
Before entering your details and verifying your order, look at the lower left side of the screen. You should see a box that looks like the one in the image below. Enter your coupon code exactly as you received it in this box. Once you click apply, you can finish checking out and pay for your order while taking advantage of your discount. You'll find codes online and in the site's email newsletter.
Biblio actually has two clearance sections available within its sites. The first is the Discount Books section, which you can access via the drop down menu when you hover over the Exclusive Specials button at the top of the page. This shows you a complete list of all books currently for sale and all books that qualify for free shipping. If you need books for college, hover over the Textbooks button at the top of the page and select the Discount Textbooks button from the drop down menu. You can then search for cheap textbooks based on the ISBN of the book or by the author or title. Biblio offers both standard textbooks and required reading materials for most colleges.
Biblio is an online shopping portal for book lovers that is similar to other sites like Thrift Books and Alibris. Brendan Sherar founded the company in the early 1990s, but he originally owned just one store. As customers began asking for rare and hard to find books, he started working with sellers from across the country. Many of the customers came to the shop because they knew he could help them find all the books on their wish lists. Several major bookstore companies then moved to the area and slowly stole his business and customer base, which led Sherar to open a website.
When that website launched in 2000, it served as a comparison shopping site. Instead of selling books directly to customers, the site allowed readers to search for a book or author and find the prices charged for those books from dozens of different sites. Though the site was very successful, Sherar missed selling directly to customers. He eventually moved away from the original site to launch Biblio and focus solely on that site.
Biblio is unique because it has strong connections with both buyers and sellers. The site offers sellers the chance to list their entire inventories online and offer those books for sale to others. It has partnerships with thousands of sellers all around the globe. The company launched its own nonprofit organization in 2005 that uses some of the profits it makes to build libraries in impoverished cities and rural areas.
Watching the Biblio Works video will give you a little more information about this organization and how it works. You'll also get a glimpse into one of the libraries that the organization built.
When Biblio first launched, it had a commitment to providing buyers with access to rare, hard to find and out of print books. You can still find those books via the Rare Books section of the site. Loading that main page will let you search for books by genre, including books for kids, domestic arts and business books. The Everything Else section features entire collections for sale. You can also use this section of the site to look for wax cylinders and signed copies of books.
While you can use the site to find rare books, it also offers a wide range of traditional books from best-selling authors, including books released within the last year and books from the 1980s. If the site does not have the book you want, you can take advantage of its in stock guarantee. This guarantee promises that you'll get a 20% discount off your next order if you cannot find the book you want. Biblio also has a return guarantee that lets you return any book or item you purchase for a full refund within 30 days.
In addition to traditional books, Biblio now sells textbooks too. You can search by the author or title of the textbook or according to its ISBN. If you need a specific edition, an advanced search function lets you look for books with a dust jacket, edition type or even publication date. Biblio also lets you search for books based on the seller's location, which will help you narrow down your search to sellers in your own area and save on shipping costs. Searching the Biblio website can help you find all the books you need for your collection.
