Bookmans Launches Summer Reads 2024: Read More, Give More!

Bookmans Launches Summer Reads 2024: Read More, Give More!

Phoenix, AZ – What’s better than getting lost in a great book? Getting a great book for free! This summer, Bookmans is excited to announce the return of our highly anticipated Summer Reads program, aimed at rewarding our loyal customers while giving back to the community.

From June 1 through September 1, 2024, Bookmans is rolling out the Buy-9-Get-the-10th-Free Summer Reads cards. Every time you purchase a book, we’ll stamp your card. Fill your card with 9 stamps, and the 10th book is on us. But the rewards don’t stop there! For every completed card turned in, Bookmans will donate a book to a local literacy non-profit, Southwest Human Development.  It’s a win-win: expand your personal library and help foster a love of reading in the community.

Program Details:

  • Duration: June 1, 2024 – September 1, 2024
  • Card Distribution Ends: August 15, 2024
  • Card Redemption Deadline: September 1, 2024

How It Works:

  1. Pick Up Your Card: Visit any Bookmans location starting June 1st and ask a cashier for your Summer Reads card.
  2. Get Stamps: Purchase books to receive stamps on your card. Every book equals one stamp.
  3. Redeem Your Free Book: Once your card has 9 stamps, turn it in for a free book (up to $40 in value) at any Bookmans location.
  4. Give Back: For every completed card, Bookmans will donate a book to a local literacy non-profit.

Rules and Restrictions:

  • Stamps can be accumulated over multiple visits or in a single purchase.
  • There is no limit to the number of cards a customer can receive.
  • Free book redemptions are valid for any new or used fiction, nonfiction, young adult (YA), and kids books, and graphic novels.
  • Rare books, RPG books, audiobooks, and comic books are excluded from this promotion.
  • Cards dated 2024 are the only ones eligible for redemption.
  • Bookmans is not responsible for lost or stolen cards. A new card will be issued upon request, but previously earned stamps will not be transferred.

“At Bookmans, we believe in the power of reading to transform lives,” said Ryan Dillard, Director of Communications. “Our Summer Reads program is a way for us to show appreciation to our customers and support literacy in our community. We’re thrilled to see our customers shelves and local non-profits’ shelves fill up with books again this summer.”

“We are thrilled about our partnership with Bookmans, a terrific book store that is truly philanthropic.  The books we will receive from the summer reading program will go to young children in our programs who are not likely to have books in their homes, said Jake Adams, Chief Development Officer at Southwest Human Development. “We know that access to books at a young age is a significant barrier to developing a lifelong love of reading.”
