B&N Online Pricing Details Removed?

Not sure if B&N made a programming mistake or if they are deliberately giving customers less information.

All items are online are now missing the percent discount and online price. As an example, until yesterday, Midsomer Murders Set 12 had the following information:

List Price: $49.99
(30% off)
Online Price: $34.99
Member Price: $31.49

I checked today, and the only information B&N gives is:

List Price: $49.99
Member Price: $31.49

Am I the only person seeing this? Why would they do something stupid like this?

I can see all the info with percentage discounts right now -- maybe was a temporary thing?

I haven't visited the B&N web site for a few days but it looks the same. I'm still seeing the usual list price, percent off, online price, and member price listings.

Re: B&N Online Pricing Details Removed?

I just went to the site and it looked like it did yesterday and this morning. Then, I noticed that I was "signed in," so I signed out, and the percentages are there!

This is what it looks like for me when I'm not signed in as a member:

List Price: $49.99
Online Price: $34.99
(Save 30%)
Become a Member and Save (a link to the "become a member" page)

When I'm signed in, I don't see the percent discount, just the List Price and Member Price. Anyone else getting that?

I also see all the percentages. Just checked again now on music and DVD both seeing the percentages.

Might need to clear cookies, temp files, close all browers, even reboot. Something may be cached or stuck.

Thanks, forumsmy. Once I cleared cookies, everything looked like it always looked!
