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]

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

Hello SWCherry24, i went to bnn today to look for this isbn 9780470343456, and they didn't have it. I asked the customer service desk to see if they could look it up, but he had a real attitude and stated he hated windows and he couldn't find it. I'm curious to see if it's available to order and ship to home. Thanks.

Also the MSPress books are 40% for anybody looking for certification books or anything else from Microsoft.

No go here at 2 stores in CA. The sales person said they were having probs with the coupon and offered to hold the item
Until they resolved the issue.

Probably over abused here

Store 1 called manager who said their system wasn't scanning coupons

Store 2 had a printout notice saying not to acceo the coupon

Which locations were these? It could be useful for our fellow SDers

Swung by B&N last night and everything worked as laid out by the OP. Picked up LOTR pre-order and Scrabble Platinum edition (separate orders; wife and I). Cashier was very friendly and happy for us!

YMMV, but Scrabble had an extra 50% off promo on it that showed up when she rang it up! We only paid $12.48! Awesome deal! 75% off!

Thanks again, OP and others!

BN Employee: Let me guess 50% off?
Me: I dont know
BN Employee: Oh I see you were UF MBA Student (my shirt)
Me:Sure was
BN EmployeeEmbarrassmentK what do you want to order? BTW its gonna be 50% off store price not online price
Me: Ummmmm, whatever (see Star Wars book on counter next to register) You got any Star Wars Blu-Ray sets?
BN Employee: Sure do. $139.99, and you have to pay for it now and your coupon wont work but I can ask my manager
Me:Thats fine lets just order it... (bunch of small talk about our Master'sprograms at UF)
[He then walks me to register instead of passing me off to manager]

Awesome, $44.61 for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy Extended Edition!

I drove to a different Barnes & Noble, went to Customer Service and the guy typed up an order form. I brought in an online print out so all he had to do was type in the UPC and fill out my delivery and contact information. He then handed me a form to bring up to one of the registers.

I walked into the media department to look for other stuff, but told myself enough is enough. I walked to the front of the store, handed the dude at the register my order form, coupon, and member card. He didn't even look at the coupon. He immediately entered it in, said I saved 50%, swiped my card, and I was on my way.

Hopefully they'll honor this. Receipt said member savings of $42.00.

No more purchases for me. All of the three Massachusetts stores I went to were awesome.

That completes the trifecta for me. Since 01/30/11 my membership has saved me $186.01, woot

Just curious, anyone buy Tangled DVD today, get talked into a copy of Princess Diaries for only $2.99, misspeak and let on you knew you had the 50% off coupon, then when the total was announced you were informed "wow, that's pretty SLICK " ???

If that sounds like your trip this morning.... wave woot wave Wink

Sorry for the OT, just the way she/you blurted out the 50% and the smirk I thought I saw when I called you slick, I just had to post to see if I had found a SDer...
Wouldn't it be funny if she replied "yeap, slick as a Cherry"? laugh out loud

It's good to have an insider who knows the secret code Big Grin
