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
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
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.
The in-store coupon can be used on anything (that is doesn't exclude ) 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!
NOTE: If after the reduced online price +50%off you are still above $25 you also get FREE SHIPPING!
