bn.com Lord of the Rings Extended $60 Star Wars $70

Re: bn.com Lord of the Rings Extended $60 Star Wars $70

Code states not eligible for this order for me? Other question, like most pre-orderds I would be able to cancel this or do they charge you right away?

Personally I'm seeing there will be somwhere at the B&M's that this will be $60-65 and figure I will pricematch at Target to get my 5% off there to cover most of the tax. But if possible would be nice to have this locked in for less than $70 now.

Re: bn.com Lord of the Rings Extended $60 Star Wars $70

Lots of great deals today...looks like the site says the sale ends tonight; not sure I want to risk waiting so I can use the extra 10% off the few pre-orders between midnight and 2:59 am...the pre-order deals are great without that extra discount...here are just a few...

Dexter Season 5 32.99
Conan the Barbarian 13.49
Big Lebowski 14.99
Copycat 9.99
Name of the Rose 9.99
Jane Eyre 17.49
Bridesmaids 17.49
Winter in Wartime 22.99 (high, but lowest I've seen this)

It's a one day sale, half off of their top 100 bestsellers-

They appear to have changed some of the titles in the list. I noticed earlier that several titles weren't 50% off. Now the list only includes titles 50% off or more (in the top 100), but some of the titles which were included earlier are no longer part of the top 100.

Discount code doesn't work on pre-orders.

I assume you're talking about Star Wars. I am tempted to yank my $80+ pre-order from amazon in favor of this. Although I've ordered from B&N before numerous times, I've never pre-ordered. Does anyone know that if I lock in the price now, will I still have the option to cancel if a better price comes along, or will the status go to "cannot be removed" quickly and hold until release?

I tried it on LOTR and said it was invalid...

ahhh the fine print on the LOTR product page...

"This item does not qualify for coupons or promotional discounts unless expressly stated."

If you order Jane Eyre you get a 5 dollar gift card as well.

Re: bn.com Lord of the Rings Extended $60 Star Wars $70

Last Christmas, Barnes and Noble had a 50% off sale, and I purchased The Sound of Music Gift Set for $45 (retail was $90).

I think I'll hedge my bets and wait until at least Black Friday, or even the day after Christmas.

Re: bn.com Lord of the Rings Extended $60 Star Wars $70

If this code doesn't work with LOTR EE and won't work for pre-orders, I completely fail to understand why the title of this thread is what it is...

It should merely be "bn.com" because that's the only part of it that's remotely true.

BTW, thanks for wasting my time!

I ordered this Blu-ray but didn't see anything about a gift card - where did you see this?

Huh? LOTR EE is $60 without any code. The code was just to take an additional amount off.

I completely fail to understand your post. The thread title doesn't mention any coupon, and was completely accurate. It still is accurate for LOTR (but SW has gone up in price). I realize the first post mentions a coupon, which apparently DID work earlier, but now LOTR has been disabled for use with a coupon.

Well, you got one thing right... you are a complete fail. You don't need any code to get LOTR for $60, or Star Wars for $70. Thanks for wasting our time.

hey thanks for that. Didn't see that banner when ordering. Hopefully I get the eGift card. Makes that an even better deal.

Re: bn.com Lord of the Rings Extended $60 Star Wars $70

That's it for me and B&N I have had it with their damn cancelling of orders for no reason! I ordered the Braveheart/Gladiator 2-pack and they just cancelled it tonight with the usual lame excuse "We apologize, but despite our efforts, we weren't able to fulfill some or all of the items in your order". B&N is dead to me like Deep Discount, they will never get my business again!

At least until Black Friday weekend, right? Then you'll be back with BN to take advantage of some of their bargains.
