There is no minimum purchase to receive this discount.
  • The homeschooler discount applies to used, new and remainder books.  (Sorry, the discount may not apply to some special order books.)

I.D.E.A. (Interior Distance Education of Alaska)
  • Gulliver's Books is a certified I.D.E.A. vendor and accepts Purchase Orders from I.D.E.A. Most books will receive a 20% educational discount!
  • If you are a homeschooler and are making purchases for use 'in the classroom' you will receive a 20% discount on most items purchased through Gulliver's Books! As an I.D.E.A. parent, you have two choices for purchasing books for your student:
    • You can choose to pay for the books yourself and get reimbursed from I.D.E.A. If you chose this route, a standard register receipt is sufficient for your reimbursement. You will need to itemize out any used book purchases before you submit your recepit. Identify yourself as a homeschooler at the time of your purchase and you will receive the 20% discount.
    • You may use an I.D.E.A. purchase order. Pick out your books and leave them with any Gulliver's clerk. We will submit your books to I.D.E.A. for approval. Once we get an approved purchase order from I.D.E.A. you will be contacted and may come pick up your books. This takes about one week.
  • If you would like to special order books for your student and receive the 20% discount, we ask that you contact the business office at 474-9575 (M-F 9-5). Whether you plan to get reimbursed or use an I.D.E.A. purchase order, you will need to contact the business office to special order books. If our office hours are inconvenient for you, feel free to drop off, fax (907-474-9579), or email a list to us ( Please include a good daytime phone number. You will be contacted within one business day with a price quote. Once we get your approval, we will submit the quote to I.D.E.A. if you plan to use a purchase order, or we will order the books if you plan to get reimbursed.
  • Please note that it takes 2-3 weeks to get in special order books that are receiving the 20% discount. If you are in a hurry, we can special order most books wihtin a week but they will not qualify for the 20% discount.
