A.R.E. Catalog Login and Password FAQs

Welcome to the A.R.E. Catalog!

The first time you place an order at ARECatalog.com, you will need to create or confirm your User Profile by choosing one of the following:

  • Returning Customer Login: Enter your e-mail address and the password used to access our old catalog (AREBookstore.com)
  • Member Login: Enter your Member ID number and your last name to create a profile with a login e-mail and password
  • New User: Create a new profile if you have never purchased from us or you do not have a member ID

The first time you access your User Profile, you will need to verify your address, confirm your password, and choose a password hint to reset your password in case you forget it.
The next time you purchase from our site you will simply need to remember your e-mail login address and password at checkout.
