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

I was at home at that time, and was contemplating about getting sick or not. Ended up hiding the box -from by son when he comes back from school- and left for work. We'll probably do a SW Saga Marathon on Friday and Saturday.

No specific questions that went unanswered. The main one was "does the in-store system also recognize when a coupon code has been redeemed online?" As we found out, yes. Apparently, B&N has been hard at work upgrading their software and was able to institute the crosscheck not only between codes used in other stores, but also codes that had been used online. Good for them... sucks for us. At least I got LotR and SW out of it before the fix, esp. since both were double-dips from DVD and those are always a hard sale in my house. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) CFO can't distinguish between the two formats. EEK! So you can imagine when the upgrade to 3D is going to be happening. Tumbleweed
I didn't order a Touchpad, but apparently they were available thru bn.com that the company says was thru a 3rd party seller with minimal inventory (although most SDers didn't want to hear such things), so when I entered the fray to offer my opinions I got torched pretty quick.

As for the coupon, I actually foretold that in this very thread here. My hope is something like this will open them up for another Groupon-type deal since they can now issue it as a unique coupon rather than a gift card (and avoid the "misuse" that happened the first time). While that would not enough to make SDers go crazy, it could still make a good small time deal.

I'd definitely like to have another Groupon run. bn.com prices on many items that I'm interested in are a bit lower than Amazon even after tax in some cases. I wouldn't mind if I can't do multiple Groupons -would be great, though- since small time deals are fine for my wish list items. Oh, I also stayed the hell away from ANY HP TouchPad deals/threads. Those are like black holes EEK!

I was told mine hit the mail sorting facility yesterday. Will get it tomorrow probably. Still worth saving $40 to wait 10 days or whatever. In no rush to watch it.
