Purchase: Earn 1 point for every $2 spent
Earn 1 point for every $2 spent on the purchase of product, but not for any amount spent on taxes or shipping costs. If an order is cancelled or returned, any Loyalty Points awarded for the purchase will be cancelled or removed from your account.
Loyalty Points are not awarded for the purchase of Book Outlet Gift Cards. When making a purchase with a Gift Card, points will be earned on the order amount, less taxes and shipping.
Refer a Friend to Book Outlet: Give a friend $10 off their first purchase of $25 or more at Book Outlet and earn 200 points ($10 in Rewards) when they make their first purchase.

Select Claim Reward for the corresponding reward amount you are interested in using.
Clicking Claim Reward will generate a Gift Card code and password that you can use during the checkout process (i.e. payment page).
All rewards that are unavailable will be greyed out and unable to be clicked.
If you selected Claim Reward by accident or you do not want to use the reward right away, the code will stay in the Manage Rewards area of your account for you to use later. Rewards do not expire.
If you do not see your Gift Card code and password under Manage Rewards, these will also be viewable under My Gift Cards area of your account. Remaining balances can also be viewed in the My Gift Cards section.
Redeem the reward.
Once you have added books to your cart, click the green Checkout button and choose your shipping method. The next screen, Payment, will have an option to apply a gift card. In the Gift Certificate box, paste your reward code with the password bookoutlet and then apply it to your order.
Some of your points will be available for redemption immediately in your account (e.g. account creation and newsletter sign-up).
However, points from purchases and the Refer a Friend program will be pending until the order has shipped. For the Refer a Friend program, the 200 referral points will be awaiting the referred friend’s order placement and shipment. During this holding period, points will be listed under the Points Available Soon section. This is to prevent redemption of points for returned/cancelled product(s).
Once the holding period has passed and the order is in “closed” status, the points will be automatically moved into your Available Points area and can be claimed toward a reward if the points balance allows.
Ways to introduce a friend to Book Outlet:
* Please note:
A referral will only be successful if your friend places their first purchase with a value of $25 or more. Orders with a value less than $25 will not be applicable to use the $10 referral code and will not result in the referrer receiving the 200 points. Referral coupons cannot be combined with other sales and promotions.
The maximum amount of referral points you can receive in one week is 400, the equivalent of 2 purchases from your referral link(s). If more than 2 friends make purchases from your referral link(s) within 1 week, you will not be awarded any additional referral points.
Points from the Refer a Friend program will be held until the order of the referred friend has been shipped and marked as ‘closed’. During that holding period, points will be listed under Points Available Soon. If your friend’s order is canceled or returned, the 200 points awarded to you for their purchase will be cancelled/removed from your account at Book Outlet’s discretion.
The Refer a Friend program is designed to award you points when you introduce someone new to Book Outlet. Therefore, friends who are referred must not have the same home or business addresses or other personal information as you. Please note: there are security measures in place to prevent the wrongful awarding of points. If you referred a friend and did not get your points, it may be because of these security features. If your referral is valid and you have not received your points, please create a Service Inquiry so that our Customer Service team may look into it further.
