So, to confirm, it's as simple as printing out the coupon and instructions and bringing them up? I've read some of the tips regarding sale terminology (discount vs promotion) and was a little confused. Understandably, all clerks are different but... what was your method? Just saying, "give this coupon a shot."? or...

Picked up Zatoichi box set, the Criterion transfer is superb, the picture quality is outstanding even on the DVD disc.

I used the 40% off on the Zatoichi set twice yesterday (2 different B&N). One for in-store purchase, the other for home delivery. Both times I presented the 30% and 40% coupons and asked that they try the 40% first. If it didn't work, I'd be happy with the 30% off. Both times they agreed to try and it worked. However, if you print it out make sure they enter 706511 and not BFRIDAY40. The terms and conditions that is linked in this thread states "Store Coupon BFRIDAY40 and Online Coupon 706511". It's backwards.

My process is to print out the coupon/instructions. I then print the 6 digit code in large letters in the white margin. I then hand them the printout saying "I have a coupon. I hand wrote the 706511 code in large text so you could read it." Works every time.

Yeah, I was denied yesterday because of the way it reads. The cashier was immediately suspicious, wouldn't even try it, and ended up calling two different people over. Thankfully I had the 30% with me to use instead.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Long Island B&N clerk took it without question and managed to get the Zatoichi for 65 bucks.

I won't be able to get away with using the coupon again in-store right? At least, not in that location?

I had an odd experience today -- 3 different clerks. First time the coupon rang 40% off; second time 30%; third was 20%. Not sure what happened.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Anybody know if there'd be any problem getting the $75 + $10 giftcard deal online from a non-US address...?

Also, if it's a gift, does the giver or the receiver get the subsequent $10 e-mail..?

I didn't see any restrictions against it in the fine print.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

The online 40% off coupon is only good once per account. A great deal on books, since they tend to match Amazon.com's prices on books.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Laser, this goes without saying, but seriously thank you so much for everything you do in this thread. You've helped many people, myself included, get some killer deals at BN for these past few years (and probably many more given your join date and this thread's 2008 creation).

So again, THANK YOU.

Laser Movies is a national treasure. The Library of Congress is thinking of archiving his posts for posterity in granite. I just wish Barnes & Noble made it less onerous to use his info.

...any ideas?
I got this too. I updated my payment method and tried a different account and I still get it. Any one know why?

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

I call nearest B&N and they have none of Barrell in stock. So I ask if I can order over phone and use coupon I got in email said she would ask and got mgr. on phone, I explained i'm 90 min drive away and wanted to use coupon not drive there just to use it. He took all info said would check it and could take coupon. I was excited but when he ran my debit card, says" it spit it back and wouldnt apply the discount" WTF does that mean i said nah I needed to use the coupon to get it he couldnt explin why it wasn't taking.

So now i'm debating whether to drive over and try to use the coupon in person to order it, or does the ordering throw it off? He was shipping to my home should I ask to have it sent to store does that matter?

The 40% will work through the mobile site for anything that the 30% will work on through the Main site, but it won't unblock Criterions or Doctor Complete or Breaking Bad Complete or preorders or any otehr ineligible items.
Thanks I must've missed that. I thought it would unblock everything. Maybe a trip to the store ...

I'm assuming you finally got yours -- how long did it end up taking?
It took just over an hour. But by that point, I was already sleeping... Tis OK, I've already used all but 10 bucks from it...

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Thanks! Just bought the complete Farscape on DVD for $41.72 including tax. The mobile site wouldn't let me enter a new payment method at the checkout screen, so I had to do it from the account link at the top of the main page. Odd, that.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Any suggestions on what Blu-rays to use the 40% off on online? Not a member and not near a store at the moment so can't try it on Criterions. Also don't want to pay shipping online so it would have to be an expensive item but everything I've checked is close to Amazon pricing even after 40% off (like Neil Young Archives).

Thanks

Shouldn't matter - home, I've found is better. I suspect the difficulty in this case was that the BB set technically isn't eligible (hence the need to order instore at all), so you need to circumvent it somehow, which ordering in person (and theoretically by phone) should do...

If you can't get a store/seller by phone, I did have one thought - although it's a bit convoluted and could involve me (a relative stranger) saying 'trust me', since it does need a person instore...! If you called in an order for $150 gift cards, which would get $20 in bonus ones, someone could then go in person, place the order on your behalf, shipped to you, and pay with the cards you already paid for (I make the total plus tax to be $135)! Ta-da.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Guys I did get a mgr to do an order over the phone for me and he verified the coupon would take 40% off before paying but, when he ran my card he says it spit the coupon back and wouldn't take it, either the 40% or 30% off any ideas why he sure didn't know, or didn't want to apply it.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Unless I'm getting confused - I'll need to check the box and my receipt - I think I got a particularly good deal on The Leopard, since it seems to be listed at $50 on Criterion.com but only $40 instore at (my) B&N...


EDIT: Amazon thinks the DVD is $40, too, so maybe the Criterion website is wrong in this case..?

..I suspect the difficulty in this case was that the BB set technically isn't eligible (hence the need to order instore at all), so you need to circumvent it somehow..
I'm sorry it didn't work over the phone this time.. it's quite possibly because it was all done on computer; the way I (and others) order online-instore involves placing the order in one go, then taking the printout to a checkout and paying separately. Paying for "an order" rather than specifically for a specific item seems to allow discounts and coupons that might otherwise be (reasonably legitimately, but frustratingly) disliked by the computer. I'd hoped that a phone order would include the same number of steps and thus work, but... it appears not in this specific case. Sorry...

I should be heading that way later this afternoon, do you want to give my several-step plan (above) a try..?!

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Thinking about the above messages... surely the 40% isn't loosely-tied to payment with a MasterCard...?
