Textbook Price Matching Policy

  • The UPEI Bookstore will make every effort to match new textbook prices (to a maximum of 15% off our book price).
  • The price match must be requested at the time of purchase and will not be granted after a book has been purchased.
  • The competing vendor must be a Canadian bookstore or website (e.g., amazon.ca not amazon.com)
  • The vendor must be the original supplier, not a third party vendor (e.g., "sold and shipped by Amazon.ca", NOT "sold and shipped by third party on Amazon.ca")
  • The ISBN (10- or 13-digit number on back of the book) must be the same.
  • Price must be total cost including shipping with costs listed in Canadian dollars.
  • Applies to new books only, sorry used book prices will not be matched.
  • Book(s) must be in stock and available to ship right away, we will not match prices for books that are not currently available.
  • Please bring in a current (same day) print off from the website/store showing the price.
  • UPEI Bookstore management reserves the right to deny a request for a price match.
  • When purchasing a text through the Bookstore's online shop, price matching policies will remain the same.
    • The customer will be responsible for contacting the UPEI Bookstore to make staff aware of the need for price match.
    • Contact must be made before the order is placed.
    • We may require a link for the secondary website.
    • The price match will only be applied once the link is verified and the order is placed.
    • The customer will not be charged until the price match and the transaction is complete.
    • Please contact bookstore@upei.ca for additional information.
