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

Can anyone spare an online email code for 50% because there is a blu-ray that is only 4% off at amazon and 14% off at B&N and I would love to get it for 50% off as it apparantly never goes on sale.
Online code was tied to the email it was sent to last time. It might be useless to barter now too

Also, anyone think you can combine this with their sale going on of buy 1 blu-ray and get 1 50% off?

http://video.barnesandnoble.com/u...379001659/
You can use it (I did last time), but 50% off only shows on the first item

The coupon takes 50% off from the online price. Remember, when you place the order at the customer service desk, you are ordering at $89.59. When you go to the cashier with the order form that has a barcode to pay for it, the 50% off coupon works on your subtotal, not the list price.

I am actually looking at my receipt from the last 50% off coupon and it shows $44.80 subtotal Grin
So you have to pay the money upfront and not receive any product until released date? I was hoping it'd be just like online preorder where you just preorder without having to pay anything until you receive the product...or maybe a $5 down payment for preorder.

I don't have time to go to in-store to use this, and my online code was only worth 10% Frown

Can someone try posting a 50% online code to see if they are reuseable?

Do you have any recommendations? Got Catan and Carcassonne. Looking for another strategy and/or group game. Smilie

Actually, you do know before going to the store, because the e-mail you received has a unique online code -along with the in store code- which you can apply to items in your cart and reveal the coupon percentage. Nevertheless, acting surprised always helps. In some cases, the cashiers will be more excited than you, believe me.
I'm new at this, and I don't get it. I clicked on the link, but it took me straight to a coupon that I can print (with no indication as to which percentage I would get) and does not ask for an email. Confused

If your B&N has it, Cosmic Encounter is an excellent choice. Also Ticket to Ride, Fresco, or Dominion.

I would recommend the following board games...

Ticket to Ride (there are a few variants, all are good to my knowledge, but don't buy an expansion)

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

Pandemic

Smallworld
