In order to better assist our students with obtaining the best value for the correct class materials, the PHC Bookstore will match our price with Amazon’s retail Price + Shipping so your total cost will be the same or less. We will also match prices for trade titles.
The following are excluded from the PHC Bookstore price matching except at the Bookstore Manager’s discretion.
Textbooks may only be returned to the PHC Bookstore during the Add/Drop period with an Add/Drop slip. You may not drop a class, and subsequently re-enroll in it, in order to return books.
The PHC Bookstore does not charge the 6% Loudoun County, Virginia, sales tax on textbooks purchased by our students for classes taught at PHC.
By way of comparison, Amazon charges state sales tax on every book sold. Currently in thirteen states (not Virginia) you can request a sales tax refund for each textbook purchased for a class by submitting verification paperwork as described in their Textbook Tax Exemptions and Tax Refunds policy.
