Hello from the Bookstore…
We want to celebrate our customers so we have created a loyalty program that rewards you for purchases you make from the Whitman College Bookstore in-store and online. As an independent college bookstore, we know you have other options and we are happy that you shop with us first.
The WhitCoin Loyalty Program allows students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members to accumulate points with every purchase made. You will receive 1 point for every $1 spent. When you reach 500 points, you may redeem them for a $25 gift card that may be used in-store or online. This works out to be 5% back on your purchases! In addition, your points will never expire, even when you graduate!
Please read the instructions below to check your available points and redeem them for a gift card.
If you have any questions please call us at (509) 527-5274 or email us at email@example.com.
Thank you for your support,
Whitman College Bookstore Staff
