Partners in Education program (PiE)

PiE card

University Book Store values the contributions educators make to their communities. And that's why we created our Partners in Education program (PiE) – to reward your hard work.

Here's how it works: any pre-K–12 teacher, librarian, administrator or homeschooler is eligible for our PiE program. When you sign up, you'll receive a PiE card entitling you to a 20% discount on all qualifying classroom and classroom preparation materials from New & Used Books (excludes textbooks) and Supplies.

You will be asked to provide proof of your employment–a pay stub or valid teacher's ID–when you sign up. Homeschoolers must provide a letter of intent or lesson plan.

And remember, you must present your PiE membership card at the time of transaction to receive the program discount. All PiE cards expire once a year on August 31, at which time you will be asked to demonstrate your academic status.

Please use the following contacts for more information:

If you would like to apply by mail, download a PiE application form. Please include a copy of a recent paycheck stub, a current NEA or WEA membership card, or a current school ID. Homeschoolers can submit a copy of their lesson plan or letter of intent. Call 1.800.335.READ and ask for Kids Books for more information.

Some special orders, short discount book titles, textbooks, shipping services, Tech Center products, periodicals, and gift cards are excluded from the PiE discount. Additionally, the PiE discount may not be combined with other discounts or special offers and applies only to stock on hand.
