(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..

Cardsfan111 08-31-08 06:22 PM

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.

Fiddlesticks 08-31-08 06:24 PM

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....

JckRbbitSlim 08-31-08 06:48 PM

The refresh trick is (so far) working! God, I hope this works....

Web 08-31-08 06:51 PM

I just got my order through by going back to the last good page I had and then clicking continue. Had to do this like 4 times for each step, but I finally did it. It says my items are on backorder though.

JckRbbitSlim 08-31-08 06:51 PM

It's giving me problems on the credit card page, and I don't want it to go through twice.... So, I guess I'll wait a while.

ShadyLPete 08-31-08 06:53 PM

well, went through for me...only time will tell now

BuckNaked2k 08-31-08 06:55 PM

Can't get to my shopping cart.....shows five items at 80% off, but I can't check out........

JckRbbitSlim 08-31-08 06:57 PM

I'm having the same problem, Buck. I got all the way to the credit card page and when I hit submit, no dice. I don't want to chance having two orders go through so....there ya go.

Spicollidriver1 08-31-08 06:59 PM

This is popping up sometimes now.
We're sorry. Our site will be back soon. In you need immediate assistace, please contact Customer Care at 888-81-BOOKS

JckRbbitSlim 08-31-08 07:01 PM

Hmmm... just got that one now. I can get all the way to the credit card info page, but I don't know if it will charge me if I keep hitting refresh.

My Other Self 08-31-08 07:03 PM

It doens't. That's happened to me - I've been charged once. I got 2 orders to go through now.

Artman 08-31-08 07:03 PM

Check your email, I kept getting the same message but I just got the confirmation sent to me. Hopefully I don't get 20 more...

MonsterMan 08-31-08 07:03 PM

My credit card was charged...but I have yet to receive an email order confirmation. Anyone else still waiting for theirs'?

My Other Self 08-31-08 07:04 PM

I got my first. Haven't gotten my second yet.

At 80% off, Borders has probably counted on people being charged 5 times per order so they get their advertised prices. ;)

JckRbbitSlim 08-31-08 07:07 PM

Yeah, right? That would be very ironic. It just sucks because I can get all the way there, then.....nothing.
