Book points are awarded to members for achievements in the BAP, HAP and Bowl Show programs. About twice a year, those who have earned book points may cash them in for aquarium related book purchased by MAS. Our club is able to obtain popular and rare books at bargain rates.
How Points are Obtained
The Book Points Chair will publish the earned points at monthly meetings near purchasing time. Each person with points to spend will be given a list of books with the corresponding book point value. Books not on the list might also be ordered. The chair will determine the point values, cost and availability to MAS.
Value of Book Points
The value of book points is determined by a percentage of BAP/HAP sales, so the exact dollar value spent by MAS can vary slightly for each purchase. The value is determined by how much the book costs the club, not the retail price. Historically the value has translated into about 2 dollars per point.
