The Penang Bookshelf's Third Internet Anniversary Offer - Runs until 3rd November 2013

The Penang Bookshelf's
Third Internet Anniversary Offer
Until 3rd November 2013
A Bit of A Gamble

On the third of November The Penang Bookshelf will have been on eBay for three years. This was its first venture onto the internet. Since then The Penang Bookshelf has established a website for customers in Malaysia and a separate one for customers outside Malaysia. The Penang Bookshelf also has a presence on the major international bookselling websites Abebooks, Biblio and The Independent Online Booksellers Association (IOBA)

In a mad attempt to celebrate this event, The Penang Bookshelf is making an equally mad offer to give a 100% refund (cash-back) of the total of one order received between today, 25th September, and 5pm on 3rd November 2013. Your receipt number will be entered in a draw to find the winner. As usual with such offers there are a few annoying conditions. As the ads say 'T&C apply.' However in this case they're fairly simple, i.e. -

  1. The customer must be a subscriber to The Penang Bookshelf Newsletter at the time of the order and on 3rd November.
  2. The order must be backed by a receipt issued by The Penang Bookshelf. (If you buy on the internet, you'll automatically be sent one. If you by in person, please ask for a receipt at the time of sale. Receipts will not be issued retrospectively.)
  3. The offer does not apply to orders where the customer has been given any discount.
  4. The offer does not apply to books specially ordered by The Penang Bookshelf on behalf of the customer, i.e. the book must be in stock at the time of the order.
  5. The winning receipt number will be chosen at random after 3rd November 2013.
There will also be two loyalty offers for customers who are already on The Penang Bookshelf's email  newsletter list as of today. There will be one two-thirds refund for one such customer and a one-third refund for another customer.

The successful customers will be announced sometime between 4th November and The George Town Literary Festival at the end of November. If you would like to be a person to volunteer to choose the winning receipt numbers, do contact me.
