School & Library Terms and Programs

Discounts

Hello, Educators!
We are so excited to have configured our website to allow you to apply Flying Pig educator discounts to your online orders. Here's how it works, and please scroll down to the note in red below.
 
If you are a regular purchaser with the Flying Pig, just email flyingpigorders@gmail.com to ask us to assign you a "Teacher Role." 
 
If you are a new customer or a returning customer who has never placed an online school order with us, please register your school affiliation by completing our educator brochure (available at https://www.flyingpigbooks.com/school-library-terms-and-programs). Then return it to us at flyingpigorders@gmail.com with the subject header: TEACHER ROLE.
 
You will also want to use separate accounts for school and personal purchases.
 
Once we have enabled your teacher status online, please add your school's information and tax-exempt number in your account in order to avoid sales tax. Always make sure you are signed in to your teacher account before making a school order and filling your cart.
 
When you are ready to pay for your school or library order, head to your shopping cart and click Checkout. 
 
From there, you'll fill out all the info as usual until you reach "Payment Method." Your discount depends on your payment method.  
 
If you would like to be invoiced for your order, select "Pay by "Teacher PO/Check" and write your full name and school in the "House Account" field. Teachers who elect to pay by this method will receive a 20% discount off their order. To finalize your discount you will need to enter 'TEACHER20' in the coupon discount field. This is the last step before selecting "Review Order."
 
PLEASE NOTE: The discount applies to the list price of a book, and is not applied on top of the already-discounted 10%-off web prices. We are working with the web host to fix the issue. In the meantime, we will contact you with the correct amount of your book purchase for your approval.
 
If you would like to pay by Credit Card, simply enter your Credit Card information in the provided field. Teachers who elect to pay by this method will receive a 17% percent discount off their order. To finalize your discount you will need to enter 'TEACHER17' in the coupon discount field. This is the last step before selecting "Review Order."
 
If you would like to pay by Gift Card or Gift Code, simply enter your Gift Card Number or Gift Code in the provided field. Please note that we do not use Givex gift cards, so if you have a Flying Pig gift card, you'll need to use the message box and type in the card number (usually begins with 1000 followed by four numbers. Teachers who elect to pay by this method will receive a 20% percent discount off their order. To finalize your discount you will need to enter 'TEACHER20' in the coupon discount field. This is the last step before selecting "Review Order."
 
If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at flyingpigorders@gmail.com.

 

How quickly are orders processed?

We place orders daily, and most ordered items arrive between 1 and 10 days, depending on the ready availability of the titles you're ordering. Please note: supply chains and delivery services have been greatly affected by COVID, so there are occasional delays nationwide. We promise to get things to you as quickly as we can within our powers to do so! We thank you for your patience and support.
 

Educator Services

The Flying Pig loves working with schools, helping teachers and librarians find the best books for curriculum needs, running curated in-store book fairs, giving lively book talks to students in schools and at the store,* and bringing fantastic authors to your schools.* Three of our staff members are former or current educators with Masters degrees in Education and have a range of familiarity with age ranges from preschool to college-aged students. We are passionately committed to diversity and equity, in society and in the literature we offer, so please use us a resource when building and updating your classroom libraries. Elizabeth created the World Full of Color database of books for children's and teens featuring main characters of color. She began it in 2009 and continues to add to it as new books come out.

*Email flyingpigevents@gmail.com to discuss virtual event options for your school or library during COVID-19, and to be added to our educator email address.

 

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.

If you have further questions, please email us at flyingpigorders@gmail.com!
