Vic Books Discount

Local students and semi-educated adults were shocked to learn that Victoria University offers alumni a 10% discount on all books in the VicBooks catalogue if they show a “recent monthly alumni e-newsletter” before purchasing at the counter. Some students were even more surprised to know VicBooks cared about their horrid financial situation. “Ain’t that the same coffee place that charge me fifty cents for a cup? That’s wild,” said Callum Turnbull. VicBooks have been offering this discount for a long time, but apparently not long enough for 46-year old PhD student who was enjoying his eighth straight year on campus until the news was broken to him. “Do you know how much money I’ve spent on textbooks that I read four pages of? Do you know how many monthly alumni e-newsletters I’ve put in the junk folder?”
Views and subscriptions to this sacred e-newsletter have increased steadily, causing their printouts to be seen as a secondary form of currency around Kelburn and Pipitea campus for students. 10% off a $130 textbook is a Domino’s pizza and a slab of VBs; a well-balanced diet for any first-year accounting student.
Many printers on campus have jammed and “given up” following many attempts to print off the newsletters. Campus Care have fixed a record number of printers this week and were reportedly proud that students were finally buying books for the first time in three years.
***disclaimer*** this shit is real. Hit up Vic Books and get what you’re owed.
