First post, be gentle

Currently there's a $10 off $35 coupon at Jet.com if you apply code: BACKTOSCHOOL05

Some decent deals I found at pre-discounted prices:

Pandemic Legacy- $50.49 (Red is sold out now, Blue is ~$56)
Manhatten Project- $36.95
Zombicide BP- 63.87
Roll For The Galaxy- 39.63

I'm sure I missed others but I can't stand Jet's search engine

Hrm. Really on the fence on this one; that's a pretty good price, not sure how fun it will be two-player only.

"It" is fantastic with two players!

But you'd be surprised how many people do it solo.

Thanks for posting! These flat $10 coupons are amazing for board games because many of them are right around $35. Do you happen to know if the coupon is the usual "for new customers only"?

It's been mentioned in some past jet.com coupon threads, but Google is a much better jet.com search engine than the one actually on the site.

Do you know if this stacks with their 15% off for new customers?

That's the lowest I've seen by far.

I don't believe so. I tried various codes and it wouldn't accept them with once the $10 off code was applied.

I removed the 05 so it's just BACKTOSCHOOL and it turned into $10 off the next three orders. My wife is going to be very upset. Thanks!

Looks like it might be completely dead. I get "You have entered an invalid promo code" even when not logged in.

*edit* Thanks to https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/comments/4x72q6/meta_... it looks like the code backtoschool06 also works and as

Thanks! Seems like these are limited to new customers. Anyone successfully apply any of these codes with their existing account?

Looks like it's dead again?

I had Manhattan Project in my cart, but was debating between that and a few other games.

By the time I settled on MP, the code was still applied, but the discount dropped to $0.

When I removed the code and tried it again, none of the listed codes worked (backtoschool, +05, +06).

Edit: It says it's a valid code, but that it only applies to my first 3 purchases. Maybe I've entered the code too many times, even though I never ordered anything yet? Or have they changed it to new accounts only?

It does look like they finally realized it shouldn't apply to existing customers. Despite getting a confirmation earlier today that my "next three purchases" would receive the discount when I refreshed my cart just now the discount had been removed and replaced with this message:

The promo code BACKTOSCHOOL is valid for 3 purchases, beginning only with your first purchase


I didn't actually plan on buying anything today so I'm not that bummed, but I wonder about their plan for customer experience when they're delivering such conflicting messages as they work out their own internal issues.

So yes, all versions of the code appear to apply to new accounts only for the time being.

To be clear, this one is for new accounts only (well, the others were supposed to be too, but were worked on existing accounts).

Edit: backtoschool07 is saying not valid now, but sure enough backtoschool08 is working fine.

Picked up Merchants & Marauders (was $31.87 after $10 discount).

jet.com banned me after using the "new customer only" coupons on 3 different accounts.

I really hate when businesses are happy to give deals to new customers, but won't offer any deals to loyal customers. Customer acquisition is one thing, but customer retention is just as (if not MORE) important.

Imagine if you went to a car dealer to buy a second car after buying your first car there previously and they were like "sorry, you bought our loss leader last time, now you can't buy another loss leader". F that.

I echo those sentiments. But seemed to work out for Jet anyways - with the exit of a lifetime.
