    • Cashback rates are subject to change both up and down.
    • Recurrences on the amount of purchases that can be made while earning cashback may be limited.
    • Waterstones cashback can be earned simply by clicking through to the merchant and shopping as normal.
    • Transactions for this merchant should appear as pending within 24 hours. They will remain at this status until the retailer confirms that we're eligible for cashback. Once this happens your purchase will reach the confirmed stage of your account. When the merchant then pays us the cashback we can make this payable in your account.

    • Waterstones Cashback is available through TopCashback on genuine, tracked transactions completed immediately and wholly online.
  • What to do when
    • The vast majority of transactions from merchants track successfully, occasionally a transaction may not get reported. If you believe this to be the case, please submit a "Missing Cashback" query within 100 days of the transaction, we will be unable to chase up claims older than this.
    • Some merchants may not be forthcoming with untracked cashback. We endeavour to chase untracked cashback but reserve the right to halt enquiries at any time. Please do not make purchase decisions based upon expected cashback as it is not guaranteed.

Waterstones Marketplace

The Waterstones Marketplace is the place to go to browse an extensive range of used, out of print and hard to find books. Thanks to their partnership with Alibris, who are a leader in used and collectible books, as well as music and movies, they can provide access to tens of millions of items stocked by independent sellers from around the world.

If there is an item Waterstones do not have in stock, or cannot easily get in stock, you will be given the option to look on Waterstones Marketplace. Once there, each item will show its availability with other sellers. You will see separate links which will provide details of each item, including its condition, the number of copies available and the price.

Click on a link and you will be taken to the seller's page for the item, where you can read reviews and buy. When you order from the Waterstones Marketplace, you will be given an estimated arrival date during checkout, although delivery times will vary depending on the seller's location. You will not be able to use Waterstones gift cards, vouchers, your loyalty card or any other Waterstones promotions with Marketplace orders, while you will need to create a new sign-in for your Waterstones Marketplace account.
