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

So SO SOOOOO Slick.....

Just chanced upon this thread today, just as I was about to leave for B&N (wasn't even looking for coupons for B&N), tottally forgot to print the coupon.

Slick deal pro tip:
Emailed to phone, pulled up coupon on phone, cashier punches in code BAM! 50% off, no need to fuss with printing anything or signing up, all you need is the coupon code, which she read off my phone.

Also the cashier had issues entering the coupon, she needed to just enter the code and not hit the coupon button.

Even after all the slick deals I've done since the discovery of SDs, I can't still help, but giggle.

Just got back from Barnes & Noble. A co-worker and I went during lunch.

He got a Network+ Certification book for 50% off.

hey, can you share your process and explain what happened? i kicked myself for missing the last deal for this exact item, and i plan to catch it this time nod
Sure. I went to the customer service desk in the center of the store. Explained that the C&H set was cheaper online, and would like them to do a in-store online order. The employee did the order and gave me a order slip to take to the cashier in the front of the store so that I could pay. I handed the order slip and the 50% coupon to the cashier. Cashier didn't even act surprised or bat an eye. Got the set for $45 + tax.

I'm surprised that it hasn't hit FP. This is only the second time B&N is having a 50% off coupon. Well, technically it's a mystery coupon to the masses Big Grin

Quote from Cryptic_Phoenix View Post :
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.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Either you order it at full price online, or at 50% in store after paying at the spot.

Quote from boazb View Post :
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.
It's not really "every" person. Last time around, a lot of cashiers -even on the last day- pointed out how scarce the 50% coupon was. I dont think SDers make a big percentage of regular B&N customer base.

Quote from shinbet View Post :
except.. it doesnt seem to work on lego
Yes, it does. Did you try this and wasn't able to buy it? As mentioned, the T&Cs are the same as the last one, and a lot of people, including myself, bought number of different lego sets.

Glad that the Star Wars preorder worked out for you as well. Too bad that B&N will not have it until 2025 laugh out loud

This is the path Borders took to bankruptcy with all their discounting coupled with Slickdeals...

Glad B&N is also into it!
