It's a new year and we've got a hangover. No, not an alcohol-induced one — a hangover of past years' books in our warehouse taking up room that we need for our incredible slate of 2010 releases. Help us blow them out by taking 20% OFF everything on our website (including our already-discounted clearance items) starting now through January 8, 2010! Just use the coupon code HANGOVER when you check out and you'll receive 20% off everything in your order. (If you prefer to shop by phone, just mention this offer when you call — 1-800-657-1100 or 206-524-1967 outside the U.S. — next Monday-Friday.) 20/20 Club members get a double discount of 36%, so join up if you haven't already. Shop shop shop!
Please be advised that our warehouse is beginning their annual inventory count tomorrow, which means that we won't be shipping orders for the next 7-8 days. In most cases we should still be able to meet the 2-4 weeks estimated time for orders with Standard shipping (as outlined on our Shipping Info page), but we can't make any promises. Please keep this in mind when placing your order!
