[USA] Barnes & Noble: 40% off

Post by pokerfool » Mon Dec 19, 2011 12:27 pm

You can get a Barnes & Noble 40% off coupon on any one Gift item (which includes legos) that is good until 12/24/11.

This also stacks with your B&N membership, so you can get a total of 46% off!

I picked up a Sith Infiltrator yesterday, and a ninjago Fire Temple today. Great Deal!

What part of the store is the 'gift store area'?

I think it can be pretty much anything, since anything can be a gift.

If you go to B&N website, and click on gifts, it pretty much lists all the categories.

I've used 3 of these coupons already. 2 on Legos, and 1 on a Leapster thing.

This...coupon...is...AWESOME!!!

I just got back from B&N and saved a ton of money. They don't mark up their prices like TrU (from what I can tell) and they had a ton to choose from. Anything goes other than books and movies from what I could tell. I bought Lego Star Wars Wampa Cave, a Leapfrog Tag book, a board game and some Lego walkie-talkies. Everything 40% off! You have to ask them to process separate transactions, but it's worth the wait.

They had the Republic Frigate at $119, so with 40% off it would come to $71 and change. Nice deal.

Thank you pokerfool!

I'll be optimistic of the after Christmas sales but I think it's best to buy now and return later at the risk of being let down by speculated deals.

I was NOT able to use the 40% off coupon in NYC. Instead, they pointed me to a lovely collection of blank journals and Xmas paraphenalia. Those are the items that make up their "Gift" department. Legos are considered part of their "education & toy" department.

Most cashiers were on to this coupon, but the customer service people were clueless. Those that have used this coupon, consider yourselves lucky. B&N corporate HQ might lock down on this one soon.

My jaw dropped at all of the Lego they had piled up all over the place - including 10 NXT sets!!

Anyone get the 40% off to stack w/ the 10% off member discount? I got this last time but the clerk didn't do it today when I used this coupon.

Which store did you go to? I was at 3rd and 54th (Citigroup Center) and nobody questioned it.

I've been able to use it 3 times in the past couple of days and had no issues stacking with the member discount. My preferred sequence is:
1) Give item to the clerk
2) Give Rewards card to the clerk and have them scan / swipe it
3) Give coupon to clerk so they can do the manual entry

This seems to be the path of least resistance and also was what I used back before Black Friday with the same coupon.

I'm sure the sales on the 26th will be good, but with this coupon + membership you can get sets for 45% of MSRP and have your choice rather than fight through "scraps" on the 26th.

$64.77 for Queen Anne's Revenge!! Woooohoo. I've been waiting to get this ship for a while now hoping to get one of these awesome B&N discounts.

And yes, my membership 10% discount stacked.

Thanks Pokerfool! :D

If you don't see what you want on the floor, ask if they have any new shipments in the back.

My local B&N had a picked over Pirates display so I asked them if they had QAR or Black Pearl... and she brought one from the back. :clap:

I was wondering what store you went to. I was thinking I needed to head out to NJ. I was at the Union Square store. I will swing by CitiCenter later ;-)

I was pointed in the same direction at my store by the customer service desk. I opted to take the Lego watch and wookiee to the desk and see what would happen and when the cashier tried the coupon the discount went through fine.

Has this coupon been deleted from tinypic? I am unable to download from the link posted by pokerfool.
Any help would be appreciated.

Link still works for me.

But the coupon is also listed on retailmenot.com.

Link from that sites coupon is here:

BTW, my wife was in B&N yesterday, and they happened to have 1 Leapster Leapad sitting on the shelf. This toy has been sold out everywhere for the last couple weeks (online and in stores), and she grabbed it up and used the 40% coupon on it. Nice score :)
