POLITICS & PROSE MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM
Why shop with Politics & Prose?
We are part of your community. Not only can you meet a friend for an author talk, have coffee at the store, and known our booksellers by name, but we pay taxes to the District of Columbia to support city services. We contribute our time and our money with donations of books and resources to many educational and cultural institutions in the metropolitan area. The P&P membership program helps the store by maintaining a loyal customer base on whom we can depend. The P&P membership program helps you by allowing you to shop at your favorite bookstore and save money on the books that you want to buy. Your purchase goes much farther when you shop locally, and we thank you for continuing to do so.
Politics & Prose Members receive 20% discounts during our regular storewide member sales and the benefits of our Member Rewards program—or every 20 merchandise items you purchase at P&P* you get 10% back in store credit!
