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]

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

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

The list price is $139.99 and the online price is 89.59 so how do you get $44.80 if the coupon is off list price only?

The coupon takes 50% off from the online price. Remember, when you place the order at the customer service desk, you are ordering at $89.59. When you go to the cashier with the order form that has a barcode to pay for it, the 50% off coupon works on your subtotal, not the list price.

I am actually looking at my receipt from the last 50% off coupon and it shows $44.80 subtotal Grin

So the CSR desk is the desk in the video section where you order but the cashier is in the front of the store?

If so, than that makes sense.

I still have my B&N Groupon in my back pocket.

Does anyone know if that will stack, or is that considered another promotion?

In theory, it should work, since the Groupon is applied as a payment method (i.e., electronic gift card) and not as a coupon. I guess, it is still YMMV, though. Just dont give both at the same time Wink

I have 1 B&N groupon left, so I'll know for sure tomorrow.

I'd like to pre-order Star Wars Saga on bluray Coverlaugh

If they tell you that you can order it online, you can tell them that you'd like to pay in cash (need to launder some drug money). Just dont mention that you have a coupon, since you wont be applying the coupon until you pay at the register.

Think they would allow you to print off a lot of these coupons and use them one after another?

Can anyone spare an online email code for 50% because there is a blu-ray that is only 4% off at amazon and 14% off at B&N and I would love to get it for 50% off as it apparantly never goes on sale.

Anyone know if you are able to use it in store before you get your membership card?
