B&N.com Free $10 e-card w/ $100 gift or e-card purchase

Post by atmail35 » Thu Jun 02, 2011 2:58 pm

To make your B&N $$ go further....get a free $10 e-card if you purchase $100 in gift cards or e-cards on barnesandnoble.com and use them to buy Lego.

I'm not 100% sure but it looks like B&N charges 95 cents to ship gift cards.

I just looked at the egift card info and they CAN be used at a B&N store OR online. I'm guessing that there is no shipping charge since it is delivered via email, but I could be wrong.

Just an update, I bought a $100 e-gift card and there is NO shipping. It was e-mailed to me very quickly and I was able to use it shortly after placing my order on-line. To use it in store you just have to print the e-mail and show the bar code.

Hopefully the $10 bonus will arrive on 6/21 like the deal mentions.

This would make the deal really good with that 30% off coupon. Only con is we have to create another account.

FYI, you're probably going to have trouble using the V7T4Y4X coupon for 30% off. I had my mom place an order for me and it was automatically canceled after seemingly going through on their website. I had her ask why and she got back an e-mail including the following:

"> As stated on the product page for ?Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0? on our
> website, this item does not qualify for coupons or promotional
> discounts, but it is Kids? Club Eligible. That is, you cannot apply your
> 30% off B&N Kids? Club Welcome Coupon to this purchase, but you can
> purchase this item to reach your $100 threshold and receive your $5 Kids
> Club rewards certificate."

Shame on B&N for changing how they are honoring a promotion half way through.

The $10 e-card is also valid in stores. You should be able to use the 30% off kids club coupon and the e-cards in-store on Lego.

I was able to use the 30% off in-store and use part of my $100 e-card that I bought to get the promo.

ETA: Sinfanti, I see that you are in Taiwan so I guess going to the store won't work for you.

@atmail35 - No, it did work for me once. The Taiwan thing isn't a problem in itself because I have a credit card with a US address. They have changed how they're willing to honor the coupon, at least online. The mail I quoted was to my mom who lives in Arizona and used her own info.

Glad to hear that they're still honoring it in stores... for now.

I really don't think you can blame B&N for anything when you have hundreds (if not thousands) of "re-sellers" from slickdeals whom repeatedly abused this coupon over just 1 or 2 days. You just cannot blame any stores for not wanting to stop this type of abuse - B&N was actually kind enough to compensate us with either a $5 or a $10 gift card.
