Gift Cards Are Always the Correct Size.

Pioneer Bookshop Gift Cards can be used online or within the store and make the perfect gift.  No worries about what size or if you will duplicate what they already have.   We have a selection of denominations available for sale in our online store.   If you need a different amount, call us at 641-269-3424. We can make them for any amount. 

Textbook Return Policy: We guarantee that the textbook you purchase from us is the one your professor requires. If you need to return or exchange a textbook for any reason, you can do that during the first week of classes each semester. An original receipt is required and the books must be in the same condition in which they were purchased.  After the first week,  refunds are issued when you drop a class or are considered on a case by case basis.
