Assume that all of these are available to all customers unless specifically listed as member only like the Welcome Package. Also remember that any preliminary codes are just that and BN could pull it, change the details or exclusions anything prior to release so always a bit of YMMV until the final release date

Mini FAQ
Coupons should not work for PREORDERS , Nook, Legos, Rosetta Stone, Digital, Gift Cards, Memberships, etc. There are glitches where sometimes an excluded item will be allowed but assume that is the exception to the rule
Free Shipping is $25 (before tax/shipping) or with membership.
Max 3 GC on a single online order.
Online only a single code can be applied to an order
Return period is 14 days after delivery (possibly 30 days for members though I've never tried)
Online ordered items can returned to a local store unless it's classified as a web-only item then it's at the store's discretion to accept
The long standing Free 60 day Trial Offer was discontinued in late May 2016

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

COuple of more 25% codes. These have been used instore, but I guess anyone that wants to try it can see if it will work again. More than a few codes have surprised me recently with how they've worked

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

On the unique 20% code, I'm getting "Item(s) in your bag are not eligible for this promotion". Any ideas as to why?

What's the item, but pre-order is the most common issue?

Every once is a while an item is miscategorized in teh BN database.

Some of the Harry Potter items have seemed to be listed as No Coupons for quite a while and for no real reason. The Harry Potter 8 Film set hasn't been coupon eligible in quite a while, but I guess nobody is really trying to buy it so the exclusion never got fixed.

Will teh code work on a different item? Sometimes a browser gets locked into a denial loop and you have to clean teh cache, try a different browser, or sometimes just sign out and back into the account.

I just tried both codes and they are active even in a nonmember acct. After trying the HP set and getting Not Eligible, I couldn't get the code to work again until I signed out of my account and signed back in.

Code works fine on other items. It's just a run-of-the-mill paperback from 2001. It's in-stock and sold by B&N. Odd.

Edit: Got my answer from Help Chat: "This was uploaded by the supplier as a textbook."

Not sure why then. I'm assuming none of the codes work for that item?

You could try calling in an order and seeing if the phone rep can tell why it isn't allowed or possibly manually add it. I've seen some items misclassified as textbooks or rentals, but those itmes get a different kick-out message

Confirmed it was this.

Actually some items are printed on University/Education Printing services, or distributed through certain channels, and though they aren't technically textbooks themselves - the fact that are produced at the same factory gets them classified that way.

ineligible

Besides the textbook thing (and BN gets weird about what it calls a textbook sometimes!) and preorders, another ineligible condition is when an item is just released and says "Add to Bag" but the ship date hasn't changed yet. Be sure to check when they say the book will arrive. That date is just under the Add to Bag button. Items will get hung up in that limbo sometimes and it takes a while (several days) for coupons to be eligible. Sometimes an item will say Add to Bag, the release date will change, and then it will change back a few hours later. (I ordered a really expensive book with the last 30% coupon that was like that for a few hours before turning back into a preorder!) BN's system can get strange right when an item is released.

I can find no real pattern to what they consider a "textbook" - some Dover books are "textbooks" while almost all of them are not. Some university press books not textbooks (like the one I ordered with the 30% coupon) and others are (like the one I got at the store with the 40% off coupon last Labor Day - yes, a "textbook" was at the store). I also don't understand why some books have online discounts and some don't (almost all the Dover math books I've gotten have a substantial online discount except the one I just got with the 25% coupon - thanks to everyone who volunteered their codes!) or how BN picks a shipping method (which seems totally random with no pattern whatsoever other than BN outsources some orders to fulfillers like Ingram, who use the worst shipping methods possible like UPS MI). BN is a mysterious world of its own.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Does anyone know if Barnes and Noble usually has a percent off your entire purchase coupon the first week in April? I've tried searching the forum, but it's been difficult for me to find anything. Thanks!

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

% off whole purchase online codes are random and they don't seem to be a pattern when they show up.
Hard to tell if there is a pattern since %off Whole Cart codes really weren't common at all until June 2016 when they starting popping up fairly regularly.

Around holidays there can be some extra codes so with Easter coming it it wouldn't surprise me

If you want to keep an eye one BNAPR100 there is a decent chance this will be a live code sometime this month -- these style codes often go live on Fridays night/Sat morning.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

New mailers have been spotted so those member who receive them be on the lookout.

Valid 4/4 through 5/14 instore (5/15 2:59am ET online) on two 20% off codes. both seemed to work immediately this time

Hoping a lucky few will get 25% again and don't mind sharing before the Arrow sale ends in a couple weeks

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

In stores, are there ever any good deals? I work close to Barnes and Noble so wondering if it's worth going inside.

They have spotty deals, but sometimes extremely good. Routine day to day random price are rarely very good.

Some new releases can be decent, but the best deals are during their big sales and the real BN deals tend to be combining available discounts. They do make you work for the best deals. It also comes down to whether coupons are allowed during certain sales -- sometimes they are, sometimes not. Certain stores are more helpful than others

Twice yearly 40% off most instore movies, of course the huge twice yearsly Criterion 50% sales, last year's 50% off Arrow sale though try instore stock was limited, the yearly 50% British TV sales.

The best deals tend to be on specialty studio items rather than mass market titles, but occasionally some items surprise you.

The stephen king titles last Oct could be bought for $6-7. I got Iron Giant on release week for $6. Their 9.99 titles can be pretty special combining 15-20% codes

One of the best things they allow now is their Ship-to-home program where they allow you to set up an order from the store computers for items not in store -- sort of an extended storeroom. This allows you to get instore prices with the member discount and instore coupons. Most of the year the web prices are lower than instore, but there are times where the reverse is true and some advantages can be exploited in the customers favor.

Depends on what you're buying. I never buy movies in-store because prices usually suck. Games, movie figures and other merchandise like lightsabers or vinyl figures are good with coupons.

Prices in-store and online don't match a lot of the time for books. I've usually found online to be cheaper.

The first sentence is the key.

There 30 and 40% off best sellers often can be quite good prices compared to teh competition on new items esp when combined with the extra coupons. Their clearance books shock me sometimes Last Xmas I get a number of books 30-60% lower than Amazon. I bought two hardbacks that were $20-25 everywhere for $5 since I guess they were on clearance sale.

In the past few years, MSRP (cover price) for items (especially books) has risen significantly to "price in" steep online discounts. B&N sells stuff at MSRP in the store (with the few exceptions Hari noted like some new releases), so finding a deal at the store isn't easy. My store has less and less inventory, so I can't find much there these days.

I've found these two scenarios where I came out ahead buying something at the store: (1) Some books are "textbooks" online, and you can't use a coupon, but if the book is at the store, the store will let you use a coupon. Last Labor Day, I got a "textbook" with the 40% coupon. B&N can be really random with what it considers a textbook. And (2) some items have no online discount, and again B&N can be really random about this. If an item is full MSRP online, you can get the 10% member discount and then use a coupon, and come out slightly ahead.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Thanks for the updates and info. Not really a book person anymore (takes up way too much space and expensive compared to digital) but I'm def into movies (and maybe vinyl if I ever decide to buy a record player). I'll be sure to keep my eyes on this in case any studio prices hit their sales so I can make the walk to the store.
