THINGS TO KNOW
Bear Bucks is a prepaid, stored-value account that is tied to your Bear Card. By making a deposit to your Bear Bucks account, you can pay at many on-campus locations as well as certain participating off-campus merchants. You can use Bear Bucks to purchase textbooks at Barnes & Noble in Mercer Village and for other miscellaneous expenses. Some merchants even offer discounts when you use your Bear Card.
Bear Book Bundle
Through the program, you can enjoy access to all your course materials on or before the first day of class at an average savings of about 35–50%. All eligible students will be automatically enrolled in the Bear Book Bundle rental program. If you do not wish to participate in the program, you may opt out through your MyMercer account beginning when bills are published in July through the Drop/Add date for the fall semester.
