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 []
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 [].

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

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

Be sure to check the balances on your groupons before you make the drive Quite a few have $0 balances despite never being used.

Someone asked for a JPEG of the 50% - here you go, buddy.


Store Locator []

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

Is a video game considered electronics? When I put in my code, it changes the code to something completely different and tells me it's not eligible. I thought a video game would be considered a toy since it's in the toy section...

Is this good on toys?

Quote from Dwight_Schrute View Post :
If your B&N has it, Cosmic Encounter is an excellent choice. Also Ticket to Ride, Fresco, or Dominion.
Thanks. Will be looking for these. It took me a while to find Catan the last time around. But the B&N on 86th and Lex in NYC has an extremely good (and well stocked) selection.

Quote from meltzroth View Post :
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")

They are doing this again? I don't have B&N near me so can't take advantage but i would have thought they would have learned their lesson after every single person in the store managed to have one of the rare 50% off coupon codes.

Last I heard, Barnes and Noble was doing quite well.
their in-store prices still suck. i only buy there when whole family in-store and kids demands something right away. otherwise, order from online (if amazon not cheaper).
nearest store is at least 30 minutes away, but it's tempting ...

50% off code 502001 does not work - 3/31 08:50 EST

Edit: My bad. I tried using it online - went back and re-read the OP's post carefully - it's in-store only.

Pre-orders are excluded according to the fine print. I wonder if they have 3D Blu-Ray movies, then that would a good deal as long as they haven't already over priced them.

Just got the email...looks like I was sent the 15% off coupon. I'll gladly print the 50%'er, instead. Thanks!

Can you order DVDs/Blu-Rays from a BN store that doesn't have a DVD section? That would be a good way to use the coupon for in-stock items without having to find a store that doesn't have the item in stock. free shipping as a member.
