What items are included in the sale?
All in-stock books (print editions) and journal single issues are eligible for the coupon discount.

With the SPRING50 coupon, if your order total exceeds $100.00 then shipping is FREE for all domestic orders.
This special offer is valid only on orders placed at www.dukeupress.edu during the specified time frame. Discounts may not be combined.


How can I pay?
All orders must be prepaid by credit card. Duke University Press accepts VISA, MasterCard, and American Express.

Does the special sale only include books?
No. You may purchase in-stock single issues of our journals at a 50% discount as well.
Journal subscriptions and society memberships are excluded from the 50% discount. However if you purchase a subscription or society membership, the total will count toward the threshold for free shipping.


I live outside the United States. Can I take advantage of the 50% discount?
Your order total will be calculated at the 50% discount, but only orders shipped to a U.S. address are eligible for free shipping.


Is there a limit to the number of items I can order?


Do you offer free shipping?
With the SPRING50 coupon, if your order total exceeds $100.00 then shipping is FREE for all domestic orders. If you order is less than $100.00, normal shipping rates apply.


When can I expect to receive my order?
Domestic orders normally ship within a few days via USPS media mail. Shipping generally takes between two and eight days within the contiguous United States, depending on your distance from our warehouse in Durham, North Carolina; orders bound for Hawaii, Alaska, or any US territories will require additional transit time.
Orders to be shipped internationally are also normally shipped within a few days via standard international surface mail. Transit time is typically 4-6 weeks and tracking information is not available.
Due to the general uncertainty around the Covid-19 pandemic, please note that these shipping and processing times could be extended.
