Just received email from B&N with a 20% off in-store coupon. "Share with friends and family."

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/promos/bn-promo.jsp?cid=3ef00&...

Interesting timing assuming the red-dot sale does go to 75% off on the 10th as predicted.

Enjoy.

Thanks for posting.

It's interesting that first it gives dates when it's valid for BN.com (different from in-store dates) and then says "not valid online at BN.com" Someone's confused somewhere.

I hadn't read all of the fine print, but I agree there's an inconsistency there.

I'm pretty sure next week is teacher's appreciation week (or whatever they call it), which has another significant discount attached to it (I think 25%). With all these discounts, I'm pretty sure they'll end up paying us to take their games.

Thanks, Ted! Monday is looking like a good day for board game shopping. Here's to hoping all discounts can apply at once...

This is in the fine print for the 20% coupon:
(vi) may not be combined with any other coupon or some promotional discounts when noted; and (vii) may not be combined with the Educator program discount.

I'm a teacher and would love if they could be combined but alas...

Thanks! I saw Splendor for $40 but had a 35% off for members sticker so hopefully this 20% can go on top of that so I can get it for $20.80.

Maybe I'm burying my head in the sand, but I think the educator program discount and the teacher appreciation week are different. I may be wrong, but I think the former is ongoing for job-related items, and the latter is time-limited for anything (probably some restrictions, like legos, etc.). I'm going to play stupid and try to use all of them. whistle

I don't see any relevant National Day/Weeks for next week. (The Teacher Appreciation Week is in May.) There is a Columbus Day Weekend sale, though. Details are to be announced tomorrow (Friday).

Regardless, these "Take an extra __% off on one item!" coupons do stack on other discounts, clearance prices and sale prices, such as the standard member discount of 10% on games. Of course the 20% savings is applied to the price after any other discounts or reductions, not to the original price.

I'm scratching my head on this one too. I was in my local store last Saturday, and I feel pretty certain that I saw a sign that said teacher appreciation week started on Sat, October 8th, and that it was a 25% discount. When I've searched online to double-check, however, I can't find it anywhere. Not even on the events page for my local store. Maybe I'll have to stop by on my way home from work today...

Not sure if this has been posted somewhere else but went to a store here in Indiana and found seafall today. Picked up a copy and with this coupon feel I got it for a decent price.

Very oddly, if you click through the exclusions link, there is one pertinent group for the audience here...for one reason or another, Catan and expansions are excluded.

It appears to be in-store only. I spot checked a few of the games online and there's no indication of a discount for any of them.

Also, apparently it's based on the honor system in redeeming the coupon "once per visit", as I also used it to purchase Fury of Dracula and Sushi Go Party on separate transactions, in the same store, using my membership discount.

There is an ad banner on BN.com saying use the coupon code BNFRIEND for 20% off. I have Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle in the cart for $39.96 with free shipping currently. Probably gonna pull that trigger for a Christmas present.

I just checked and I see that it is a B&N thing, not a "national day/week of" thing. Oct 8-16 is Educator Appreciation Days, "Pre-K to Grade 12", with a special event scheduled on Thursday October 13 in my area.

Unrelated 1: I also see a Tabletop Gaming Meetup scheduled for Saturday October 15 in my area.

Unrelated 2: B&N just emailed details of their Columbus Day Weekend sale. Part of it is "select games and puzzles 30% off", plus online-only: 30% off any one toy or game (*some exclusions of course).

Edit: Link to sale details added.

Does anyone have a list of these games which are 30% off? I've looked, and unless I'm blind I can't figure it out unless I go game by game and do the pick up in store thing.

From what I have gathered (and this is just my assumption), I don't think we will know what games are 30% off (in-store) until tomorrow, when The Columbus Day sale starts.

I am unsure as to whether or not the games currently marked with the 25% and 30% off stickers in store are the ones being referred to in the Columbus Day Weekend Sale. Guess we will just have to wait and see?

When I visited, the sale was for the stickered games, exactly as assumed. I also had no problems combining the 25% discount, 10% member discount, and 20% off coupon. Actually, my cashier was very excited to see the game played so well! I walked out with Betrayal at House on the Hill for under $30, just in time for Halloween.
