Textbook Price Guarantee: Shop with Confidence

We continually work hard to offer competitive prices for textbooks and ways for students to save money. To show our commitment, we guarantee if you find any new textbook for less online on another Canadian ecommerce website, we will match the price, PLUS give you 10% of the difference.

How It Works

  • Purchase your textbooks from the University of Toronto Bookstores in order to participate.
  • Fill in a Textbook Price Guarantee form.
  • Print the item page on the competitor's website.*
  • Bring the completed form, printed verification of the lower price*, with original register receipt and your TCard to the Bookstore refunds / customer service counter. We will verify the alternate selling price as quickly and efficiently as possible without slowing down our service in store. You may need to return to the store at another time to receive your refund.**
  • All funds from the price guarantee will be conveniently refunded to your original form of payment.

Terms & Conditions
