How much discount do I get on my textbooks if I am a member of Gyrinus?
If you are a member of Gyrinus, you will get very high discount on your textbooks.

Discount on Dutch language textbooks
Before a period begins, you will receive a 10 percent discount on Dutch-language titles when ordering online via Gyrinus. This has to do with Dutch legislation. You will receive this discount only during the period mentioned with the titles online. If the period has started you will receive a 5 percent online discount if you purchase 2 different Dutch-language books from a study group. The latter also applies to purchases at the VU Bookstore as Gyrinusmember.

Discounts on English-language books
. English language (study) books are always super cheap if you are a member of Gyrinus. Also note the lowest price guarantee that applies to you as a member of Gyrinus. This way you always pay the lowest price for foreign books.

Lowest Price Guarantee
You will not find your books cheaper anywhere in the Netherlands than at the Gyrinus. As a member of Gyrinus, you get a lowest-price guarantee! If you can buy the study book cheaper at a regular Dutch webshop (including!) then you get the difference back. Please keep your invoice of Gyrinus safe. Note: this guarantee only applies in the run-up to and during the period that you need the study book.
