The Official Borders Coupon Thread - Updated Weekly
 
I'm doing this thread for the benefit of all the people who shop at their local Borders. Since January 2006, Borders started pricing all their store items, except mainstream new releases, at retail price. To compensate for this, the went nationwide with a Borders Rewards membership and started to send weekly coupons to all the people who registered online. Most of this coupons require people to get their membership for their rewards program at their local store. The card is free. You can get more info on the card at www.bordersrewards.com . You can check the inventory for nearby stores at www.bordersstores.com. The coupons are only valid in-store.

Feel free to post your coupon, no matter how much is the discount. I will put all available coupons in this first post. All contributions will be appreciated.

This thread is exclusively for Borders coupons that include DVDs in the offer

Continuous coupon:

Good job, dx23. Please don't be upset, but I really think it would be great if you could also include Barnes and Noble coupons in this thread. There are way too many bookstore coupon threads, and I think one master thread would be awesome.

Peep 03-09-07 04:49 PM

Cool list. Do all of these work online?

LostFan 03-09-07 07:48 PM

Borders has their educators discount coming up too. 25% off the list price of all dvds (also books, but that's not why we read the forum). 25% list price isn't always that great, but its good for those special/less popular/rarely on sale dvds. Its starts around the 24th and runs for the weekend I believe. You do need to have proof of being a teacher. This is in store only as far as I know though.

We have an ed. discount year round, but this is "ESW"--Educator Savings Week(end). That's when it bumps from 20% (but not on DVDs, we don't even get it on DVDs, as the distributors give us--as a company--a pretty crap discount on DVDs) to 25% (which I believe, YES, this time will apply for ESW).
22-27th, actually, so before the 24th.

Some stores are more loose with how they define 'teacher' as technically it's for any kind of educator, including seminars and tutoring etc.

The No Man 03-10-07 06:19 PM

So can you use a 20% off coupon on a DVD WITH a Teacher Discount too? or would that only work during that special week? Or would it just not work at all?

No. Teacher discounts and coupons cannot be combined.

xNightfallx 03-11-07 01:12 AM

I have never used coupons printed from home before. Do they ever give you a hard time about it, or does it almost always work without a hitch? Also, would I be able to print out a few of the same coupon and use them in different transactions?

JackBurton 03-11-07 01:25 AM

Picked up the Oldboy tin w/ 30% off. Thanks!

Always worked fine for me, and the multiple trick should work, but to be safe you may want to use different days or stores.

The No Man 03-11-07 12:07 PM

Thanks OP! I just used the 30% off on the OOP Oldboy Tin. $30.40 with tax.

The No Man 03-11-07 12:11 PM

I think I want to pick up another Oldboy for my brother's b-day. Would it work if I went back same day and used another 30% off coupon with the same Borders Rewards card? It says "One coupon per customer during the valid period." Will there be another 30% off coupon coming out tomorrow?

bgmat58 03-11-07 12:20 PM

call me crazy but these dont seem like such greta prices. the list prices are high to begin with! i paid 32 at amazon for my oldboy. and the uncut extended sin city is like $40 so with 30% off its only like [email protected] which is like how much it is everywhere else!

You can use it many times.

Two things:

1-The Oldboy tin is out of print and if you go to amazon.com right now, you are going to see that the lowest price for it is $64.

2-Your comment may be considered a threadcrap. i posted these coupons for the people that shop at Borders. It is their prerogative to shop wherever they want. I'm just giving them a tool so they can get the lowest price on the store.

Okay ,cool thanks. I'll head back to Borders later to get another Oldboy tin w/30% off. I never shop for DVDs at Borders, but from reading the threads at DVDTalk discovered that Borders was a good place to find Oldboy Tins. It's also better picking it up at Borders than ordering it online because with the 30% off it's cheaper, and there is no risk of getting a dented tin (like I've read has happened to many people who have ordered it). Thanks OP and thanks DVDTalkers!

Thanks hiccup! I took the link and posted it on the first post with the other new coupon.

Updates on first post for the coupons ending on March 18th.

Any active 30% off coupons? I'm signed up for rewards, but I've never received any emails from Borders, coupons or otherwise, despite updating my email prefs- so I never know whats available.

checked junk mail?
Occasionally ISPs and e-mail providers assume the mailings are junk and automatically route them there--whether you ask or not.

i86time 03-21-07 10:23 PM

Yeah, I check there every so often, but have never seen a Border's email. I was wrong earlier... looking through my inbox I actually found 3 Border's emails. 1 was welcoming me to the rewards program and the other 2 were for a personal shopping day, but the last email I received was 24 Jan 2007.

Did you *register* online after signing up?

fliggil 03-22-07 07:18 AM

This week's coupon is only 20%

GuessWho 03-22-07 07:49 AM

Does "with Purchase of $10 or More" mean that the item you're using the coupon for must be >$10 or do you have to buy a second item worth >$10?

Just the item you are using it for.

An an ex-Borders employee, it means the former.

The item to be purchased must be at least $10 to qualify.

Yep, signed up in store then registered online the same day.

Very strange. Call customer care--the 1-800 number on the back of the card, see if they can sort that out for you. Very strange that you would recieve PSD notification but NOT regular mail...

I've had no problem using the coupons on items less than $10. For example, I'll get a $5 magazine and a $7 book, and have no problems applying the coupon to the $7 book.

Good point. My intel is what I remember from about 5 - 6 years ago.

FangsFirst 03-22-07 06:40 PM

Whoops, sorry, I mis-read speedy's post (and just assumed he'd be right, which I think is generally a safe bet ;))
As a *current* Borders employee, I can verify that the total purchase is what must be $10--it can be a single item you're using the coupon on, or 87 items that add up to $10.

bohemian1 03-23-07 06:39 AM

We will probably get more promotions, rewards (17 million rewards members) since borders is splitting from Amazon and will run its web business on its own.

That's weird because I've tried to use it on magazines buy they don't let me.

Hopefully they will start kicking out more 30% coupons because the 20% isn't enough to make me shop there.

jackepstein 03-23-07 09:01 AM

When is the split supposed to happen?

Likewise. I used a 30% coupon every week -- sometimes more than once -- when they were available. It made them competitive. Otherwise, their prices are too high, even with the 20% off.

This is NOT good news for being able to use Borders gift cards at Amazon anymore :(
