Did you see it at a B&N store as a bargain book, or you mean elsewhere? If at B&N, there is a 20% off coupon now, plus can save 10% off with the member discount in-store, so even if it is more in-store, it may come down to a decent enough price for me. Maybe I'll swing by a local store and take a look.

No I saw it at half price books. If they had their 50 percent off coupon it would be a possible deal. It could be in store at BN though. Deals in the past sometimes were.

As much as I love "The Simpsons" (even the new episodes), I kind of wish the show would come to an end, maybe at a nice clean number like 25. That way we could get definitive editions of books like these.

Don't forget to apply a coupon (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-bargains/533548-barnes-noble-coupon-thread-part-2-a.html) for an additional 15% - 20% off.

I got the notification. I'm not too worried about it. I don't need mine till January so if it takes a few extra days, no biggie. As long as they don't cancel, I should say.

Thanks, Chad! I missed out on this the first time. While I'm sure that they'll put out a super complete edition when the show finally comes to an end, for $12 and change I won't be out too much should I double dip.

I placed my order yesterday evening and didn't get a delay notice. It says it's scheduled to ship today. But even if I have to wait, I don't really mind for that price.

Wow. This must be really popular. I just got an e-mail asking me to authorize a 30 day shipping delay. I sure hope it ships before the two month trial membership expires because I don't plan on sticking with it.

Why wold that matter? Since you already ordered it the membership still still be intact for anything you ordered while a member, atleast the amazon prime works that way.

Mine arrived the other day and it was a little banged up. The plastic was torn up and there's some heavy dents in the case. No complaints, though. I've been wanting this for years and it's an unbelievable deal. Makes for good reading and it's very extensive in background information and facts about each episode. This thing is huge.

I got the email to approve a 30-Day Order Extension... at 3:24am this morning. It said if I don't respond in 24 hours, the item will be canceled. Meaning, if I was near a computer on Independence Day, I would be screwed.

A little cynical curiosity wonders if that's an intentionally-timed email out to many people in the hopes they'll miss out on the deal so that the orders they fulfill matches their actual stock.

I got the 30 day e-mail on Sunday. I forgot to respond to it and my order was cancelled. I was able to reorder it at the same price again. I'm sure I'll get the e-mail again even though it says scheduled to ship on July 5 but I won't forget this time.

Has anyone that agreed to the 30 day order extension received their book yet? I'm still waiting on mine, with about a week left on my extension. They really shouldn't still have it listed as "usually ships in 24 hours". Maybe they could pull one of the copies from Manhattan (same day delivery!) and ship that out to me. Doubtful.

I think I'm going to send customer service an e-mail and make sure my order didn't fall through the cracks.

To B&N's credit, today they sent me an email saying I have one month left on my trial membership. It's nice to have a reminder to quit within the next 30 days. :)

Texan26

I forgot to respond to the 30 day extension. They cancelled my order so I reordered it and actually got it 3 days later. So you may want to contact customer service.

07-26-12, 08:51 AM
Really? Thanks. Customer service has been emailed.

Out of curiosity I checked to see if it was in stock locally. All 5 or 6 stores close to me have it. Seems like they could ship one of those to me. Something clearly went wrong.

Weird how this book disappeared and was somewhat hard to find for awhile but has now reappeared. I looked for a copy of this months ago for a fellow poster and couldn't find a copy locally but I went to those stores that hadn't had a copy for months to once again find a stack of them.

Got a response from customer service:

For some unexplained reason your order didn't ship and it had to be
canceled. Therefore, you will not be charged.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we
encourage you to visit our website again and reorder this item as we do
have it in stock

Thank you for understanding and please accept our apologies for any
inconvenience this may have caused you.

Strangely, the order is still listed as open on the BN site. Don't know why they couldn't just complete the purchase after receiving my email, but whatever.

Eh, bit on it this time, $37.XX with the tax and one year membership. New coupon for 20% coming out the third, Shades of Grey Trilogy will be mine :)

Thanks for the heads up on the new coupon. I will just wait until then to reorder this book.

It's selling for $22.48. (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/simpsons-world-the-ultimate-episode-guide-matt-groening/1102435819?cm_mmc=affiliates-_-linkshare-_-je6nubpobpq-_-10%3a1&ean=9780594045052&itm=1&usri=simpsons%2bworld%2bthe%2bultimate%2bepisode%2bguide) Which is the link listed on the OP.

They always had the expensive regular version listed along with the cheap "bargain book" version. According to their site: "Bargain books are new but may have slight markings from the publisher and/or stickers showing their discounted price." The version I received had the bargain price sticker on the shrinkwrap. No harm done.

Bought one for me and one for a friend for $12.99 a few weeks back. As soon as I placed the order, I noticed it was being shipped to my old address.

I tried to cancel online. Nope. The order had been placed seconds before.

I called to cancel. They said they couldn't. The order had been placed minutes before.

They told me when it ships to the old place the apartment office will just refuse it for me and ship it back and I should place a new order. I said these are big books and will weigh a lot. It doesn't seem very "green" to let these books go out and then place a new order. But that's what they said. So I did.

Placed a second order. It arrived no problem. Still bugs me the way this went down, though, including the order from last year that never actually got canceled or filled.
