Chapters, Indigo, Coles and World Biggest Bookstore

All TESL Ontario members are entitled to a 20% discount on regularly priced books at all branches of Indigo, Chapters, and Coles within Ontario. The discount does not apply on DVD, CD or gift items, and you may not use it for online purchases. It is also not applicable on sales books. Indigo, on granting this discount, normally state that the books should be for educational purchases only. They are, however, aware of the fact that many of our members teach adults and the TESL Ontario comment field on the computer screen in the store will show "that the educational purpose of the purchase will not always be obvious".

Please note that they will require verification through your showing your TESL Ontario membership card and you will have to quote the TESL Ontario corporate account number: 90171091. Your plastic membership card will have the corporate account number printed on the back of the card.

If you experience issues accessing the discount at the store level, please ask to speak with a Manager to resolve the issue.
