Orders from earlier months appeared to get calculated like the second example you gave that combined them together. It doesn't appear the recent web site upgrade had anything to do with the calculation changes since B&N started doing this several monthes ago.
The change must have occurred sometime in April then. My April 7 order calculated the old way, with the members discount and coupon combined and taken off at the same time. I didn't place another order until July 15.

I don't know the exact date it was changed but I did place several orders throughout the month of April. I did have one calculated the old way on April 18, but another on April 23 was calculated the new way. Looks like the change took place between those dates.

I think most people already know but live.com cashback is giving over 12% at BN for a limited time! You can also use coupons and member discount.

Thanks, Lakeland. I didn't know that. Never used live.com before. I wonder how long the 12% lasts...

From what I read it says it can end at anytime. I've used Live.com a few times and they quickly issue credits for purchases. However I haven't purchased enough to qualify for a payment yet. I think you need have a minimum of $5 in credit before they will pay you.

I haven't been able to get 20% coupons to work for several months now - it keeps telling me that the coupons are not eligible. I don't why; the 15% and other coupons work fine. It's almost like they've restricted my account from using the 20% ones.

I used C7J8D4W on a preorder yesterday and N7P8K9P a week or two ago. But a week before that the later didn't work for me.

C7J8D4W only works with a b&n membership, if you don't have one that would be the problem

Looks like B&N is offering a new service to let you reserve certain items online and pick up in store if it is available at the store. I would be interested in this if you could get online pricing. So far it appears if it is only being offered in a few store locations according to the advertisement I ran across. I would imagine more stores will offer in store pick up in the future.

Can't get a coupon code to stack with the VISA or military free shipping link. Worked in the past, guess B&N is tightening their belt?

I was starting to wonder if it was a problem with my account, or a web site glitch. I was having the same problem trying to place an order through the links you mentioned with my members account. Several weeks ago coupons were working fine when I ordered some CDs through the links to get free shipping stacked with a members discount and coupons.

However about a week ago I tried to order the Three Stooges Collection Volume 3 while it was at 30% off, but it wouldn't accept the coupon. The only way I could get a coupon to work was with another account I had that didn't have a B&N membership associated with it. I was able to use one of the 15% non member coupons through the Visa link with no problem. Got free shipping, 10% Visa discount, and the 15% coupon to stack just fine.

I don't know what was going on with the links, but with the members account it looked like the 10% membership discount was stacking with the 10% Visa discount before I tried adding the coupon. Then when I attempted to apply the coupon it wouldn't accept it. Previously you could only get one of the discounts through the links before adding a coupon. Not sure if it is an attempt by B&N to thwart coupon usage by members, or if it is a glitch.

My suggestion to get around the coupon rejection is create a new account without a B&N membership. A non member coupon should work with any of the links. But the Visa link is the best choice since they are currently running a 10% promotion. If you have a B&N Mastercard use the 20% code since it doesn't require a membership. I've already used the 20% code on 3 different accounts, and only one has a membership. However, I'm not sure if it will work with any credit card other then the B&N card.

Stupid question:

What's the best way to set up a second account using my B&N Mastercard? Different email address keeping everything else the same?

If you're trying to use a B&N membership on two separate accounts, I don't think that's possible. It's set up where a membership number can only be linked to a single account.

Yes, all you need is a different email address to set up a new account. I use the same credit card and address information on all of mine. You'll still earn the 5% rebate with the B&N card on all accounts.

souvenir is correct you can't use a B&N membership on more than one account unless you purchase another one with a different number. But a membership would defeat the purpose of creating a new account to get around using coupons through the Visa or Military.com links. The way it's working at the moment with the links you actually save more money without having a B&N membership.

Yah, I wanted to do what Laser described. I guess it was my impatience but I didn't wait for a reply and it worked nicely. Using my new non member account I got the VISA discount and a 15% coupon plus I'll be getting 5% back from my B&N CC. Great stuff.

Crap, I missed that. I also missed South Park Season 11 when it was 30% off. Both are 20% off now, which is still decent, but 30% is obviously better. Darn it!

I was sort of surprised the new Three Stooges set didn't stay too long on the top 100 bestsellers list before dropping off and increasing in price. I was glad I got my order in before it happened. I have a feeling it will return to the top sellers list in the next few days, and the price will drop to 30% off again if you wait it out.

It's up to 177 right now (It was in the mid-300s a day or so ago.)

Of course, for those who didn't buy the first two editions, they are currently on sale for 40% off (before coupons/membership discounts.)

Is anybody else having problems with the coupons at the front page? Because last night I went through EVERYONE and it kept telling me that the coupon is not valid with this purchase and all I ever buy from them is dvd's.

I removed some coupons today that had just expired but the other ones on the active list were working when I tested them a short time ago. You might want to disclose a little more information on what happened. Do you have a B&N membership and tried using the coupons through one of the links posted on the front page? There does seem to be a problem with coupons working with memberships through the links. However there were also a few reported problems using one of the 20% off codes, but otherwise most of the coupons were working through the normal B&N website.
