What's Happening Today

The UE Bookstore sale runs through Thursday, December 13.  Get 15% off all UE clothing and gift purchases during the period.  Students who sell back books have the chance to get 20% or 25% off their purchases through the Bookstore "Scratch and Win" promotion during Buyback - December 6-12.

* Bookstore Buyback

"Scratch and Win" Book Buyback starts on December 6 and runs through December 12 in the UE Bookstore.  The Bookstore quotes all books whether used on this campus or not and gives you cash on the spot.  Please bring your ID when selling books. 

Also during Buyback you can win prizes instantly including two Grand Prizes along with merchandise discounts from 15%...20%...25% percent. 

Sell back as many times as you want but remember in some cases the earlier you sell may net you more money based on the quantities the store is buying for itself. 

Bring all CDs and components with you as they may increase the value of your book and clean up workbooks if you can to give them value. 

If you have any questions please contact the Bookstore ... and remember books bought remain on this campus as much as possible to help keep book prices lower.
