Vista Higher Learning Store Help

Online Codes

All textbook packages sold in our store include a Supersite code. If you have a used textbook you will not have a code, as they are non-transferable and cannot be reused or reset once they have been activated.

If applicable, the code(s) purchased on your order will be displayed on your screen upon order confirmation and will also be included in a confirmation email which you should receive shortly after your order is completed. Make sure you check your Spam/Junk folders. We recommend that you print your confirmation screen in case this email does not reach you. If you have a used book, you can purchase a new code for all programs other than ¡Adelante!, Invitaciones, or Hola, ¿qué tal?. (These titles are consumable worktexts that are intended to be written in and therefore only used by one student. In order to receive a Supersite code for one of those texts, you will have to purchase a new textbook.)

Redeeming a Code

To redeem a Supersite, Supersite Plus, WebSAM or vText code, please go to:


Returning orders that contain physical items:

Customers are eligible to return physical materials purchased from the Vista Higher Learning store within 30 days of the purchase date. All returned materials must be in new, unmarked, unused and saleable condition. Shrink-wrapped packaging must remain unopened. Opened shrink-wrapped items are non-returnable. If material is sent back to us in non-saleable condition or was purchased more than 30 days from receipt of the return, the items will not be returned and credit will not be issued.

We do not issue partial credit. If you purchased a package and only return a component of the package, the item will not be returned and no credit will be issued. If your package included a code that was emailed at the time of purchase and all physical items included are returned, you will receive full credit and the code included will be deactivated upon receipt of your physical items at our warehouse.

You will not receive credit for the shipping charge on your original order. We offer free UPS ground shipping on all domestic orders, however, if you chose to expedite the shipping at your expense at the time of purchase and your order is returned, that shipping charge will not be credited.

When making a return, you are responsible for all transportation costs incurred. Materials must be shipped via a traceable method of your choice to:

Vista Higher Learning Returns
c/o LSC Communications
677 Brighton Beach Road
Menasha, WI 54952-8009

You do not need an authorization number to make a return, however, please include a copy of your packing slip with the shipment. If you do not have a copy of your packing slip, please make sure to include your order number and/or the name on the order. If nothing is included with the package and we are unable to determine which order was returned, no credit will be issued.

VHL is not responsible for return shipments lost in transit.

Refunds take up to 30 days to process after the materials are received at our warehouse.

Returning orders that contain an online code only:

Beginning January 1, 2016, no refunds will be made for purchases that contain an online code only. This includes all codes purchased without a physical book and includes Supersite, Portales, Supersite Plus, Supersite Plus Upgrade, WebSAM, WebSAM Upgrade, eBook, and vText codes. No exceptions will be made. Please make certain you are purchasing the correct package for your course prior to purchase.


All orders take 1-2 days for processing and ship from Wisconsin. Transit times vary depending on location and shipping method selected at time of checkout. We offer the following shipping methods for physical items:

  • UPS Ground (Free shipping on all orders within the U.S. and its territories)
  • UPS 2nd Day Air (rate will be calculated and displayed at time of checkout)
  • UPS Next Day Air (rate will be calculated and displayed at time of checkout)
  • USPS Priority Mail (when shipping to P.O. Boxes only)

You can choose your shipping method during checkout.

Payment Options

The Vista Higher Learning Store accepts the following credit cards: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.

Sales Tax

Vista Higher Learning is required by law to charge local sales tax for orders shipped to most states.

Sales tax rates vary by state. Compliance is one aspect of a company’s State and Local Tax (SALT) picture that it cannot ignore. Vista Higher Learning, Inc. has addressed their state and local tax exposure through an in-depth due diligence process. If sales and/or use tax is required to be assessed on your order, we will assess the appropriate state and local county tax rates and remit to the proper taxing authority on your behalf. This will eliminate your burden of self-assessment.

Damaged/Defective Items

In the event that you have received a damaged or defective product, please contact the Customer Service team immediately by phone: 800-269-6311 or via e-mail: [email protected]. We will be happy to assist you with a return or exchange. Please have your order number handy.


ISBN stands for “International Standard Book Number.” Each item has its own individual ISBN. This ISBN number can be used to search our products. There is a 10-digit and a 13-digit ISBN for each item and for each package.
