August Back to School Shopping Spree


As mentioned last month, we’re running three contests this year in honor of the Back to School season. Last month we gave three winners a big box of college prep books but this month we’re kicking it up a notch. Not only do we have a winner every week in August, those winners will have their pick of any books in our catalog that qualify for free shipping. The winners can fill their shopping cart with $100 in free books.

How to Enter the Contest

Since this is a back-to-school contest, we want to see your school spirit. Post a photo of yourself showing college pride. All you need is to share a photo of yourself with some object that mentions the name of your school, and share it with the hashtag #GetSchooledAlibris on either Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus. You don’t need to be a student to enter, so alumni can hold up their faded old pennants and Ivy League hopefuls  can show off their Harvard and Yale t-shirts. Remember this is a contest, so be creative! A photo of you frowning next to a wrinkled piece of paper with Florida State College scrawled in crayon is certainly eligible—but not so likely to win. Then again, you never know, so get those crayons out of the box.

Remember there’s a new winner every week, so enter now!

The Fine Print

Some other stuff that’s important to make extra super duper clear so no one gets hurt feelings:

The Free Shipping logo marks the books winners can choose (it may also be shown in black on white)

  • This contest is for US residents only. Yes, that includes Alaska and Hawaii.
  • Shopping spree is a one-time use…it’s a spree, not a dilly dally.
  • It’s mondo important that the winners only choose books with the Free Shipping truck. If you pick other books, you’ll be responsible for the shipping, so look for that truck logo, winners.
  • Enter as many times as you want, just don’t forget that hashtag or we won’t be able to find your entry.
  • The books are free, but we’re not going to pay your taxes for you. (This likely only applies if you live in California or Nevada.)
  • Contest runs from today until the clock strikes midnight on September 1st. Then we’ll have another contest to enter!
