Newegg Continues Category Expansion by Offering Textbook Sales

Greater Commitment to Students Includes Discounted Premier Membership

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. For more information about the
promotional store and to take advantage of discounted Premier membership
