LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Newegg, the top tech-focused e-retailer in North America, today furthered its commitment to the education sector by offering textbook sales to high school and college students. The move is an important element of the company’s effort to broaden its product portfolio.
“Newegg has long been the go-to destination for tech-savvy students, so it’s only natural we include textbooks in our offering to them,” said James Wu, COO of Newegg North America. “Students can visit Newegg not just to serve their technology needs, but also for great deals on the textbooks that complement their coursework.”
Today’s news is the latest in a series of moves to address the needs of students. Last month, Newegg began offering students discounted membership in its Premier customer benefit program. Students can now join Premier for just $29.99 per year, a $20 discount off the standard price. With Premier membership, students enjoy many benefits, including:
- Free shipping on all textbook purchases
- Free 3-days-or-sooner expedited shipping on qualifying items
- Free shipping on returns and waived restocking fees for qualifying items
- Free rush processing on orders with at least one qualifying item
- Dedicated customer service line to help answer any questions or concerns
- Exclusive monthly Newegg Premier member-only deals
- Early bird notifications about our major sales and events
Newegg is also hosting a promotional store for students. By this time in the academic calendar, students know what they left at home, so Newegg is stepping in to help with great deals.
