Bookmans is into geeking out any day, anytime, and anywhere. But there’s just something about May that makes us geek out harder than ever. From video games to comics to music to movies, Bookmans is the place people go to expand your geeky horizons. It’s where we dive deep into our respective fandoms with reckless abandon. Join Bookmans in celebrating all the little things we geek out about with these free in-store events this May!

May banner image that reads Your Purchase, On Us. 2 Winners. Every Store. Every Day. For More Than 20 Years. The image features 4 people excitedly holding up their free Bookmans purchases including books, comic books, and video games.

To start, we want to geek out about something that we’ve been keeping to ourselves for a long time. Like, a long, long, long time. For more than 20 years, two random customers at every Bookmans store get their purchase for free every day. Yes, totally free and yes, every single day. For anyone keeping count, that’s roughly 87,500 customer purchases on us. That’s a whole lot of Bookmans winners, and we could not keep it to ourselves any longer! There’s nothing to sign up for, no programs to join, and no preamble whatsoever. Just 12 winners a day, every day. Will your next purchase be free? Head to your local Bookmans to find out!
