(DEAD) 80% Borders.com code
 
Probably a glitch, so you better hurry before they catch it!

Get 80% off ANY order w/promo code CS8001.

Holy fucking Santa Claus shit!

flair 08-31-08 05:57 PM

found this one a minute ago too. Pre ordered the bleach magna box. Hopefully it works but I highly doubt it will.

ruddiger_718 08-31-08 05:58 PM

The site went down, so they may be fixing it.

theMadness 08-31-08 05:58 PM

agreed, will probably get cancellation email but worth a shot.

ruddiger_718 08-31-08 06:04 PM

I managed to get an order through, I can only pray it works.

Tarantino 08-31-08 06:05 PM

I expect an order cancellation, but we'll see.

ruddiger_718 08-31-08 06:06 PM

Does Borders have a history of cancellation?

Gizmo 08-31-08 06:12 PM

Trying now...

My Other Self 08-31-08 06:13 PM

I'm trying to checkout but the site keeps going down. Dammit. I had some in my car but I got greedy. Oh well.

Tarantino 08-31-08 06:13 PM

Store is completely down now.

I did get in with one order for Sarah Connor Chronicles and Heroes S2 on Blu. We'll see if it goes through.

Gizmo 08-31-08 06:13 PM

Yep, looks dead. Oh well.

My Other Self 08-31-08 06:21 PM

Mine JUST went through... I got a confirmation e-mail. We'll see..

Service Temporarily Unavailable :hairpull: I've been trying since shortly after this was posted....and I almost feel compelled to keep trying until the site is back up.

My Other Self 08-31-08 06:23 PM

I kept refreshing until I got to the checkout screen. It went through. My confirmation e-mail confirms the discount.

Doesn't look like a glitch to me; the coupon code is correctly identified ("Customer Service 80% Off"), and I'd guess the issues with the site are due to an overload of hits from people like me. How about the Twilight Zone Complete Definitive Collection for $55.xx plus tax?

That's what I ordered. Along with the John Ford/John Wayne set. $70 total. Doubt it will go all the way through though.

My Other Self 08-31-08 06:26 PM

That's probably it, but I'm guessing that coupon was a glitch for the percentage, too.. I mean that's nuts.

JckRbbitSlim 08-31-08 06:29 PM

Jeebus! I'm sitting here for twenty minutes now trying to get an order through. Fingers crossed.....

I just checked my bank account to make sure I haven't been being charged over and over again. Thank God everything is fine.

I do, however, see the charge for the one order that went through for me, so I'll cross my fingers for that one.

cinemaphile 08-31-08 06:35 PM

I had to refresh every page about 10 times, every step of the way, but eventually it went through.

West Wing: the Complete Series (45 discs) for $54!!!! (reg. $269.99!!)

Gizmo 08-31-08 06:35 PM

At the last step...every 10-15 'refreshes' seem to move it a bit more along.

Cardsfan111 08-31-08 06:42 PM

That refresh over & over trick does seem to work...somewhat....
