1. Buy 10 free 1 promo
One of the most eye-catching offer we saw at the sale is of course the buy 10 free 1 deal. Now usually that wouldn’t be anything impressive, but considering that this is the Big Bad Wolf book sale we’re talking about – it’s huge. This means that people are already buying books in a bundle, adding to the fact that the books are already 75% to 95% off.
2. Wolf Pack app
Introducing the newly launch wolf pack app: with this, customers can save themselves the hassle by selecting the books they want online. They can then collect it at a later time during a sale. Additionally, the app will also feature a referral program which gives users a chance to collect exclusive merchandise from 5th to 16th December 2019. Newcomers will also receive a 20% BookXcess promo code upon signing up. The app is available now for Android users here, while IOS users can download theirs here.
3. Loyalty reward
The Big Bad Wolf book sale is now a decade old, and they wouldn’t have succeeded without the help of their loyal customers. So to give back to fans, the Wolf has decided to hand out his limited-edition gifts at this year’s sale. How you asked? Just bring your price memorabilia from previous sales to the workers at the customer service counter to claim it.
Hurry, while stocks last.
