    • This merchant calculates cashback excluding VAT, delivery and any other charges.
    • 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.
  • What to do when
    • 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.
    • 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 30 days of the transaction, we will be unable to chase up claims older than this.

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.

Waterstones Black Friday deals

Here's what we found:

If you had been looking for a fantastic offer on a great read last November, there were some page-turning Waterstones Black Friday deals available. There were up to half price deals on books by the likes of J.K. Rowling and David Walliams, plus up to 25% off their paperbacks of the year. If you had been shopping on Black Friday at Waterstones for hardback fiction, George R.R. Martin’s Fire and Blood was discounted from £25 to £12.50 and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald by J.K. Rowling lowered in price from £16.99 to £8.49.

Past Tense by Lee Child, meanwhile, could have been yours for half price at £10. If non-fiction was your thing, both Becoming by Michelle Obama and Dynasties by Stephen Moss were reduced by 50% to £12.50, while other half price deals on non-fiction saw Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy 1945-1975 by Sir Max Hastings made available for £15 and Blowing the Bloody Doors Off by Michael Caine offered for £10. Whether you had been looking on Black Friday or clicked through to Waterstones on Cyber Monday, you would have found offers on paperbacks too.

The Silent Guides by professor Steve Peters was on sale for £9.99 instead of £12.99 and Milkman by Anna Burrows had £2 off at £6.99. Anyone looking to give their child a festive treat could have picked up a LEGO Star Wars advent calendar for £19.99 instead of £24.99, while discounts on children’s books saw David Walliams’ The Ice Monster reduced from £14.99 to £7.49 and A Darkness of Dragons by S.A.
