If you have a $5 Balloon Bonus coupon, it is not a gift card or online coupon code and will not enter as such. We therefore normally do not accept Balloon Bonus coupons online, but during these unusual times, we will accept them on the honor system. Please include that you would like to use your balloon bonus in the order comments and we will apply it manually. Once you've used a bonus coupon, please discard it.

 

Please note: If your order contains books that are not currently in-stock, we will hold the entire order to ship until all items have arrived. If you are ordering books that are not-yet published, we recommend splitting those into their own order so that the rest of your books aren't delayed.
