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

There have been a lot of questions so I figured I would share my experience.

I went into the store and headed back to the DVD/Bluray section. I told the lady up front that I had the coupon and wanted to pre-order the Star Wars Saga on Bluray. I apologized ahead of time for potentially wasting her time since if it was anything other than 50% off I was going to leave without making the order. That I was just trying my luck for a good deal. She said that was fine and she wasn't worried about it.

She took all my info and put in the order and then scanned the coupon. She was like "WOW! Not only did you get it for the pre-order price of $90 instead of $140 you also managed to get the 50% off!!" I was like "What?! No way! That's awesome!!" She proceeded to finish ringing me up and I paid $48 and walked out with my order confirmation and receipt. Since then I have received two confirmation emails about my order from Barnes & Noble.

I hope this helps some of you guys.

I tried ordering the Star Wars Complete Saga in-store, but the workers couldn't/wouldn't do anything.

Said that the receiving date was 12/2025, and they couldn't order it without an end date.

And plus, they didn't see the $89.99 online price. I couldn't find it myself on my iPhone.
It says on coupon under (iii) that "products available for pre-order" are not eligible so YMMV.

Nice to have this deal back again! Got the email, but it was only for 20%, knew I'd find the 50% here. I like how the headers of the coupon page state which coupon it is, now I don't have to play the "surprised" act at getting a lucky 50% coupon!

So what's the good word? Can we use both the Groupon and 50% coupon at the same time? Thanks.

For everyone who's done this so far:

You used the exact coupon code from the OP link, the one with the bar code # 502001 ? I want to be 100% sure before I head out.

must not be alot of SDers in the Burlington, ma area, went to the store today with a friend, and they said they had not seen a 50% off coupon all day, that it had been mostly 20 or 30s...they were actually quite ecstatic over seeing it, was kind of comical.

What I meant was, give your item (or online order receipt) and the coupon together. Once you are told what your subtotal is for payment, then give your Groupon -as a gift card- and pay the remaining balance.

If you hand out both the coupon and the groupon at the same time, you may receive the "sorry, we can't combine two offers together" response.

Yes, that's the one... If you look at the header of the printout, you'll see that it actually says 50% on it laugh out loud

Yeah, they are happier than the customer most of the time when a 50% coupon shows up.

i have to add to this YMMV. here's my story (it's short Smilie ) . went to B&N in park slope, ny, closest to me, but still far and had spent 15 minutes to find parking.
wen to customer service, she pulled up the same , i.e. 2025. she explained that happens when something is pre-order far away and they don't know the date. on that i said that i saw the item on bn.com. Surely she went to different tab in her browser, searched for SW saga in Dvd and ... it came up with 89.59 . "do u want to order? - hmm, sure". she typed my name/address and printed order details. Nothing on that order says "pre-order"!
went to register, gave her order, then coupon. She said "Congratulations, you actually go 50% off, didn't see many!"
So final cost after tax? $48.77 . Nothing prevents them from cancelling it later, but except gas and some time i don't loose anything. well, besides the point that i was debating whether i need it anyway Smilie
