Why Online is Best for You
Why buy online?
- No lines
The first reason is our favorite one. No more will you have to stand in long lines. Not only can you pick up textbooks, but you can also schedule a pick up for school supplies; like pens, folders, binders, etc. etc. etc.
- Online Receipt
Lost your paper receipt? No worries. Ordering online, you will always have a copy of your receipt available on your SpiderShop account.
- New Quick Pick Up Location!
Just like a drive through, the SpiderShop has an Online Textbook pick up window!
Located in the 2nd floor hallway, we have our “walk-through” window where a
helpful staff member(s) will be able to help students with obtaining their
online orders or questions about textbook policies. Look for our “Textbook
Pickup” signs in the hallway. Please have your order number ready, this is
how we are able to find your order. The Order Number can be found in your confirmation email
and on your online receipt.
