(DEAD) $40 Newbury Comics Gift Card only $20 - Starts Thursday 8/19/10 9AM

Through WAAF, New England Perks is offering $40 Newbury Comics gift cards for only $20. They do not go on sale until Thursday August 19th at 9AM, and it looks like there will be a limit of 1 per customer. They are only offering 2,000 cards, but maybe those will last for a while.

Link

Another station offered half-priced gift cards to Newbury Comics a few months back through New England Perks, and I took advantage of that deal. Cards took maybe 3 or 4 weeks to arrive, but for half-priced gift cards, it was well worth the wait.

EDIT: The gift cards cannot be redeemed online. In-store only.

This is now live, and I just bought a couple of these (I've almost used up my $300 worth from the last round). Looks like you can buy more than one, they just have to be individual transactions. So with the shipping charges, it's essentially $23.75 for a $40 GC. Still a great deal if you're gonna shop there anyway like I am.

They are good for later online purchases, right?

/\ I didn't think of that until now, but sadly it does not apply to online.

From their website;
What methods of payment do you accept? newburycomics.com accepts the following methods of payment:

American Express
Master Card and
Visa

newburycomics.com does not accept orders placed over the phone or via the mail.

newburycomics.com does not accept checks or money orders.
newburycomics.com does not accept Newbury Comics gift cards.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'm in for one of these.
The Newbury in Manchester, CT, has been having a huge sale on jazz albums, hope this card arrives before that ends.
