Subject: Requesting Multiple Copies of the same book?

I am a classroom teacher and would like to purchase multiple copies of the same book.  When I try to order the next copy however, I get a pop-up explaining about gold key membership and it will not let me complete the transaction.  I really don't want to purchase gold key membership.  Is there a way I can continue to request these books without it?  There are many copies available.

Thanks for your help!

No, you can get one after the first one arrives, and so forth.

Sandy, what some people have done is to have Gold Key members order the books for them.  You'd just send the credits to the GK member, and have the books shipped to your address.

I'd be happy to help you with this if you'd like.  PM me!

I also recommend going to the teacher's forum.  They are used to this issue and folks will order books to be shipped to you for a credit.  Or more if you find a gold key member.
