Feature: Amenities of Philippine Bookstores You Might Not Be Aware About

Every Wednesday, I'll have an essay or a feature on any topic that catches my fancy!

Aside from the ability to place book orders or reserve books (each store will have their own policy), here are some services from local bookstores that you might not be aware of.

National Bookstore:

Everyone knows about NBS's "Laking National" card (similar to a white credit card) which earns you points with each purchase but did you know they also have a discount card (colored red) which you can obtain through an accumulated P20,000 worth of purchases in a year?

Fully Booked:

Depending on your location, for a minimum purchase of P2,000, you can have books delivered to your home!


Stores now have a terminal in which you can check to see what titles are available and in what branches. You can also use the said terminal to check how many points you've accumulated if you're a Powercard holder.


Looking for a book in that random pile of secondhand books? Try their website.

Books for Less:

You can email/text inquiries at or 630-9999 respectively.
