(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.

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

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

Does Borders have a history of cancellation?

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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