    Default Scholastic book club

    Does anyone buy there children books from this or do you only let your child buy with pocket money?

    Also just wondering can you pay with cash or does it have to be money order or credit card?

    I'm really excited dd started prep this week and we already have the first lot of catelogues :-D how often are they every month or every couple of months?

    We rarely buy new books - we hunt through op shops where most books are $1ea and we borrow from the local library - my kids have their own library cards

    We occasssionaly buy a new book when a library book becomes a favourite.

    Yes you can pay by credit card on the form (as pp posted ) or you can pay over the phone or net using your credit card then add the payment number/code to the form.

    You can pay cash

    I always get the cheap book which is on the front cover. Other times we get a whole heap of books. Most of the time I pay for the books or her father will give her money for them.

    I think we get two a school
    term

    That's good I'd rather pay by cash too. I've probably ordered way to many lol yeah I love the cheap books I've gotten a $2 and a $4 book plus a bundle of 10 books for $20 :-) can't wait. So it's just twice a year? I remember when I was a kid, I went to the same school dd is. They used to have book fetes in the library best day ever

    Hi
    I co-ordinate bookclub at my school so I hope I have the right answers. You can pay cash or the different ways with a card. We also allow cheques made out to scholastic. There are 8 bookclubs a year (2 each term) plus one or two special catalogues (super cheap prices) a year. Often the super cheap book is a small sized book. Some things are very gimmicky and I feel poor value for money. Software is well priced.

    I allow my kids one book (no plastic stuff) per bookclub.

    We also have two bookfairs a year. This is up to the school if they want to hold them. (I love books which is why I organise bookclub and bookfairs)

    It helps the school buy books. If say the school order is $300 the school is then entitled to 30-$40 of free picks (choice of books out of current catalogue) plus a $40 voucher to use towards the next bookclub catalogue. My very small school is able to get about $700 worth of books for the library each year through bookclub.
