New Riders

Now that New Riders web site is able to sell books direct, they've created a discount coupon to replace the User Group Store. Please review the instructions below for buying from with your UG coupon. This is a privilege which, if abused by non-UG members, will be removed.

  1. Log on to

  2. The coupon code is NRUZERZ. The coupon is not case-sensitive. nruzerz works, too.

  3. When you're done adding items to your shopping cart, proceed to checkout. Once at the checkout page, you'll find a box at the top of the form to input the coupon.

  4. After inputting the coupon, click the "apply coupon" button next to the coupon box. The page will then reload, and the coupon will be applied. You may then complete the checkout process.

This coupon is good for 20% off a customer's total order. If the customer orders $100 worth of books -- the merchandise total will be $80. The discount is not applied to any shipping the user might incur. The coupon is 20% off your store's already discounted prices, so you, the buyer, actually get more than 20% off the retail price of the products purchased. (i.e. $50 - standard 10% discount = $45 - 20% additional discount = $36) Some people might think 10% off plus 20% off equals to 30% off, but it's not an additive discount. The coupon can be used on as many orders as a customer would like to place, but will only be applied once per order. The coupon does not have an expiration date.
