Hi everyone,

I just saw an e-mail from B&N featuring their "mystery coupon" again. Basically, depending on the coupon you received, the discount could be 10, 15, 20, 30, 50% off. The last time this happened, every single SDer received the 50% off code/e-mail Big Grin

If anyone missed it last time, this works great on Star Wars: The Complete Saga Bluray pre-order ($44.80+tax): Linky [barnesandnoble.com]
Just go to the customer service desk, place your order and take the printout with the barcode to the cashier. That's when you present your coupon to get the 50% off. Although most of us were able to order it this way during the last deal, some were told that the coupon excluded pre-orders (so, YMMV).
It should also work on The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy: Extended Edition pre-order [barnesandnoble.com].

Here are the 50% off multi-use in store coupons:
502001 - Nonmember 50% [barnesandnoble.com]
106381 - Member 50% [barnesandnoble.com]

Rest of the coupons, in case someone doesn't like getting items at half price laugh out loud
501961 - Nonmember 10% [barnesandnoble.com]
501971 - Nonmember 15% [barnesandnoble.com]
501981 - Nonmember 20% [barnesandnoble.com]
501991 - Nonmember 30% [barnesandnoble.com]
106351 - Member 15% [barnesandnoble.com]
106361 - Member 20% [barnesandnoble.com]
106371 - Member 30% [barnesandnoble.com]

Store Locator [barnesandnoble.com]

The in-store coupon can be used on anything (that is doesn't exclude Frown) sold online so long as you pay for it in the store:

1. Order at the customer service desk what you want online (you will get the online price) and select pay in store. Do NOT mention the coupon to the rep because this will only confuse them and make them lie to you that it won't work.

2. Go to the cashier with your printout/receipt and present your 50% off coupon.

3. Act surprised when the 55 year old lady behind the counter has a premature heart attack over how lucky you are.

4. Use whatever payment method you want and rejoice in your slickdeal! Big Grin

NOTE: If after the reduced online price +50%off you are still above $25 you also get FREE SHIPPING! woot

Dominion (Buy either the base game, or "Dominion: Intrigue")

Pandemic

Smallworld

Has anyone tried using the coupon on video games? In particular using the customer service + cashier in store method?

I never got around to trying this with the last 50% off coupon and I really can't afford to waste the gas atm. Frown

I'm eyeing the Dragon Age Ultimate Edition [barnesandnoble.com] for the Xbox 360 after having missed all of the insane deals in December and January.

So this works on DVD/Blu-Ray, but video games are out, right? Even video game accessories, like this one?

PlayStation Move SharpShooter [barnesandnoble.com]


I assume so, since it says "ships within 24 hours from GameStop"

Hmmm so if you tried this on something that was restricted by the coupon then the system would not accept it, or it's YMMV based on which 55 year old lady you get behind the counter?

It all depends on whether or not the computers take the coupon.

I found out during the last round of coupons that they would work on anything they did not exclude regardless of whether or not they were trully bought in store or by ordering at customer service.

The 55 year old lady thing was just an inside joke about what happened to me last time around.

At two different stores, both me and a friend had the coupon right after each other. BOTH times the ladies behind the counter FLIPPED and made it seem like we had just won PCH or something and that we should expect balloons to drop from the ceiling.

In a way I'm kinda dissapointed that there weren't any. laugh out loud
