Pearson Offers December Rebate Program 
Pearson is offering college stores in the United States a 5% rebate on orders shipped in December 2014 that are of increased value over those shipped in December 2013.
 
Orders shipped to a college store from Pearson from Dec. 1-31, 2014, will be compared to orders from the same period in 2013. If there is a shipped-order increase over the value from December 2013, the store will earn the 5% rebate on the amount of the increase. For example, if Pearson orders shipped to a college store this December are worth $50,000 more than orders shipped during the same period in 2013, that store would earn the 5% rebate, or $2,500, on the increase.
 
Only U.S. college stores that placed Pearson orders in December 2013 are eligible. Any earned rebates will be applied as a credit to the store’s Pearson account by March 31, 2015. Contact your Pearson sales reps for program details.
