What & When is the Tent Sale? 

The Tent Sale is the BearWear sale event of the year at the Missouri State Bookstore.

The Tent Sale is going VIRTUAL this year! Usually, we set up the Tent outside, but to keep you and us healthy, we're putting this sale online.

September 21st-25th, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.*, located in the Tent Category above, all items will be: 

  • 50% off Monday
  • 55% off Tuesday 
  • 60% off Wendnesday 
  • 65% off Thursday
  • 75% off on #BearWearFriday

*Due to volume of guests expected to use our website during the Tent sale, Tent Sale items will only be available to order 8 a.m.-6 p.m. This helps prevents a website crash & over-ordering. We appreciate your understanding!

No Other Discounts Apply. All Virtual Tent Sales Are Final.

Coupons and Discounts

 

Q. I have a coupon code.  Can I use it on anything?

A. No, coupon codes cannot be used on gift cards, technology products, textbooks and other items as determined by the Bookstore staff.  Coupons are typically not good on already discounted merchandise.  We attempt to exclude all non-eligible products from the coupon.  If a coupon is used on a non-eligible product, the Bookstore may offer to sell the product to the customer at the regular price or to cancel the order.

A. Coupon codes are provided to members of our campus community for promotional and appreciation purposes.  Past examples of coupon codes are for new students, season ticket holders, or alumni groups.  The Bookstore reserves the right to discontinue a coupon without notice.  Coupons are monitored for use.  If a coupon is found to be used in a manner inconsistent with its purpose, the Bookstore may offer to remove the coupon from the order or to cancel the order.
