Textbook Price Match Guarantee: Shop with Confidence

We work hard to offer you the best prices for your textbooks, and we're always looking for ways to save students money. To show our commitment, we guarantee that if you find any new textbook for less on a Canadian website, we'll match the price, PLUS give you 10% of the difference.

How It Works

Found a lower price for your textbook on another website?

  1. Come to the Bookstore with a copy of the webpage for the lower-priced book (See Terms & Conditions below)
  2. Visit the Text info Desk to complete a form to verify your price match.
  3. Once completed, take the form and the copy of the webpage to the customer service desk where you can complete your transaction.

Terms & Conditions

Your digital or print-out copy of the webpage displaying the lower priced book will need to show the time, date, competitor name and website url, new book price, and availability.

The textbooks must be identical (same ISBN and edition), and must be in new condition only. We are unable to price match rental textbooks, course packs, custom publications, digital versions, and international or instructor editions.

Prices for comparison will include shipping/handling, and any other applicable fees. Online sites must be located in Canada, and do not include peer-to-peer sales, auctions, flea markets, garage sales, and marketplace sites, such as Amazon Marketplace (i.e. from Amazon.ca, but fulfilled by a seller other than Amazon.ca), eBay, Craig's List, and Kijiji. Online quotes must be from a business, not an individual, and must be current and in-stock.

Price matching is available in store only. We will retroactively price match purchased textbooks up to three days following the purchase date. All price matched textbooks are final sale.

The U of T Bookstore reserves the right to refuse a price match guarantee for any reason and to change the details of this offer at any time.
