Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Any news on the timing of the Nov Criterion sale? There are several box sets (e.g., IB) I am dying to buy.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

The Criterion Sales thread in the Deals section put up today with the dates Nov 2 through Dec 3 (I'm assuming it ends Monday night like usual)

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

For folks looking for a more simple GC discount -- no resellers, no promo cards, no expiration

https://www.staples.com/happy-teen-g...oduct_24364753

It appears you can get up to 3 at a time -- $127.50 for $150 so net 15% discount. I don't know if you can make one order per account.
The listing is somewhat confusing since it says in-store only in one place and not available in store in another. As far as I can tell you can get these shipped or do in-store pickup

If you're worried about using them at BN, these cards appear to be cross branded for use also at
Regal Cinemas, American Eagle, Nike, Dave & Buster’s, Sephora, Jamba Juice or Barnes & Noble

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

It says 'This item not available in stores' which means you can't walk in to a Staples store and buy it. You have to order it through their site, although 'Pick Up in Store' is an option meaning it will be shipped to the store.
Then it says 'Redemption: In-store only' which I think means you could only use it at B&N in-store, not through B&N's their site. This worries me because I'm tempted to get this, but I don't have a B&N close by.

First part makes sense. Last part a little less for BN since I've never seen a BN GC that was limited to Store Only. Some other stores do have such restriction on certain type GC anyway so it's possible that one of the other "stores" on the card might be restricted.

Of course I've never seen this Distributor before nor a Co-Use BN GC so I'll let you know when mine show up.

EDIT -- looked a bit more into things. HappyCards appear to be part of GiftCardMall/Blackhawk who sell cards online and run a ton of the GC Kiosks in-stores. everything I can find appears these normal std Physical GC loaded with funds just like you'd buy at CVS, Lowes, Publix, HomeDepot, etc. The fine print say "Some merchants allow only in-store use" but that shouldn't apply to BN. The cards I bought yesterdya say they will arrive by Nov 12 so these are e-GC or fast. the Staples promotion ends November 3 (I'm assuming Sat Night around Midnight in some time zone)

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

the $75+10 appears to be live. Expiration date appears to apply on Promo Cards and the 75+10 Promo ends the Monday before BF which probably means the 50+10 BF deal will happen again this year

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Thursday emails are out. Criterion Sale still presumed to start tomorrow online and in-store, but as always I'll believe it when I see it though I finally did get confirmation from one of my local stores of Nov 2 - Dec 3 dates.

Nonmember appear to be getting a Unique Code 15% off coupon in-store coupon (Members a 20% code). The code specifically states it's for a book, but I'm not sure it's not a general use coupon anyway. No Criterion restriction specifically printed, but that hasn't always meant much over the last couple sales.
Expires end of business Nov 4, 2018


Online Coupon
15% off $40.00 to $99.99 and 20% off $100.00+

I tried my member store-only coupon code online and it worked, so someone's wires got crossed for this batch. (I ordered a book, so I don't know if it works on anything else. AFAIK, their coupon codes are unable to distinguish what item you're ordering unless the item is specifically flagged as a textbook in their system.) YMMV, but the sooner you try using the coupon online, the less chance they'll have to fix it.

Here are three 15% store-only coupons:
HFNM8VC9CKE9A
FVPCJSGW63JC8
2QJWWUEW9N3AA

Whether these work on items that aren't books, or can be used online, is anyone's guess. I was able to use a 15% coupon on a book in my cart just now online - but not a random Star Wars Blu-Ray.

Even better.

I did try that -- neither member or nonmember is applying to movies, but it does work for the book I tried so maybe it will be the same instore.
If so, then that's at least one way around the Criterion issue in store though there are still other coupons that could apply so they still should have to change the exclusions.

So I decided I'd take a chance and order a pair of them and received them yesterday. On them they tell the cashier to ring it up as Credit, not Gift, and on the back it has a 16-digit credit card number, a CVC code and an expiration date. So I didn't try it on the site yet, but not sure how likely it is to work. Has anyone used more than one credit card at a time on the website, and/or has anyone used a regular prepaid credit card where the balance was more than what was on the card?

They appear to be pre-paid VISA cards (like rebate cards). I don't know of a way to use partial payment online, but I know a lot of stores can ring them up that way so you could stack them.

It's certainly possible they could do that over the phone with CSR, but nobody has tried it yet.

My thought is with 3 $50 cards - is it possible to buy $150 in BN Gift Cards and get 2 Promo Cards in addition? Or save them until BF and get a $50 GC+$10 with each HappyTeens card. There absolutely no reason the last option wouldn't work and you effective turn you 127.50 into $170-180.

EDIT:
Not sure about online purchase, but the Happy Cards ring up quite nicely for Gift Cards in-store and it was much easier than I thought it would be
Bought $150 and paid with the Happy Cards -- slid 1st $50 card through the Payment console, "Enter Pin" screen popped up so just hit enter since it has no PIN, it deducted $50 with a balance of $100, rinse repeat with Card 2 and Card 3.

I did have to remind the Manager about the Promo cards which she ran to the front desk and retrieved the Special Card, entered the amount and scanned her laminated card to activate.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

Now that it appears teh ARROW 50% sale goes through early January there's even a decent sale to use those Promo Cards on.
The Arrow 50% off sale is active, but definitely only selected instore titles are included -- 12Monkeys, Fish Called Wanda, Hired Hand, Day of the Jackal, Cat o Nine Tails were in the Special Sale bin. Images was in store, but not part of the store sale.

December Criterions are not 50% off in the computer and I don't think the January titles are even in the database yet though it would be nice if someone would specifically check "Notorious" since I forgot.

One of stores was getting a mild makeover losing about 25% of the floorspace it appears for TOYS, but it really doesn't look like their stock is any less. More LPs, less CDs, and the Movie shelves and Bins were much closer together than they used to be and packed tighter.

Store #2 had changed inventory, but overall looked mostly the same. Maybe a couple less Music/Movie stands and definitely more LP's.

One of the old Media Clerks was there trying to clean up everything and get the boxes unpacked and on the shelves, but the back register was closed. We did have a nice conversation since he is into 50/60's Movies and I've seen him there for years.

How confident are you in B&N having the 50+10 BF deal again this year? I'm wrestling between going for the 75+10 deal now and for the BF deal later. Problem is, if I waited and the BF deal does not materialize, I'd be screwed.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

I'd say 90% that there will be some sort of BF GC deal -- I guess it could be something different than a 50/10.

Before the 50/10 started (?2015), the 75/10 always went through either the end of the Criterion sale or end of November. When the BF 50/10 deal started, then the 75/10 expired either M/Tu prior to BF. Hopefully someplace will get a sneak peak to be sure, but I find if hard to be convinced a BF GC deal isn't going to happen.

Re: Barnes And Noble Coupon Thread Part 2

The printable 15% for in-store use is about it today after teh Vet Day code expired. I strongly expect something to show up by Thursday though hard to say what % it will be. Often the week before BF, BN had tended to release at least a 20% off single item or 10/15/20% off cart code for online.

Things being what they are and BF coming earlier in the Holiday cycle things aren't exactly clear.
