I don't know if B&N is doing their game sell yet (and good luck finding any really good games), but here is the code and link for 25% off on item.

Online: enter the code D8H8E4H at checkout and the highest priced eligible item will be 25% off

In store:
B&N coupon print the coupon

I hope this helps some geek expand their game collection (books aren't bad to get either).

the coupon expires on Jan 28th. I believe most of the sale on games typically start in February

The B&Ns around here all seem to have copies of Arkadia as well.

BTW, some of them also have a few Thomas wooden railway buildings at 75% off!

Sort of. It expires at 2:59 AM the 28th, according to the text at the bottom. Which is why the text at top says the 27th.

Assuming they offer anything but the time sensitive movie themed games like Spiderman 3 Monopoly, etc.

The other stuff, especially Mayfair titles which weren't discounted last year, may be part of their new year round games inventory, so they won't be clearing them out.

I picked up a copy of Puerto Rico from them for $10.00 last Feb. I stop in every couple days to see if they have marked anything down. One of the advantages to being in outside sales.

If anybody is interested and you're not near a Barnes and Noble, you can pick up Arkadia online for a little over $26 using this coupon (it retails for $34.95). That's even less than the discount boardgame websites by a few dollars.

Plus, you automatically get free shipping since it is over $25. You may have to pay tax when you order but its still cheaper than paying for shipping.

For those of you munchkin fans, they have copies of Munchkind with a Munchkin bobblehead that's "exclusive" to B&N. Haven't been able to find any on the discount game websites.

It's too bad everything on the B&N Site right now is either a Monopoly-derivative or pure garbage.

Thanks for posting this! I recently bought Pillars of the Earth at B&N with a gift card. I was able to return the game and re-buy it with the coupon for a savings of over $13. Now with another coupon, I can go buy Modern Art and will only have to pay $4-$5 more than the amount of my refund.

This coupon is emailed ONLY to people who have PAID for the B&N member's discount card.

It was NOT sent to general distribution to the internet by Barnes and Noble.

That's why it's dishonest. Unless you got it the honest way, it's fraud.

I got the coupon in the email and I'm only on their mailing list.

Can you please direct us to the statement from B&N where you got this?

It is not mentioned anywhere on either coupon (only one of which mentions being for Members). I do not recall seeing anything restricting the ability to share the URL in the Member e-mails I get from them. In fact, the e-mail (for the member coupon linked to above) I got said, "For each valid and current Barnes & Noble Member account, this coupon can be redeemed once at any Barnes & Noble retail store and once online at bn.com." This certainly makes it seem as if the offer is generally available to any Member, not just me.

Generally, if something is an exclusive offer, it will be mentioned somewhere in the offer.

If you have any additional information from B&N, you should share it here. If, on the other hand, this is only your uninformed opinion, you should also share that.

The second coupon does state its for members only and I would assume that if you tried to use it that B&N would ask for your member card and deny you if you didn't have one.

The first coupon though seems to be a offer to the general public. It's easy enough for a retailer to restrict these coupons if they want to or make them single use. I get coupons from blockbuster that have my name on them that can only be used once. So Swandive I'm not really sure why your getting all excited about this.

I quote your quote:
"In fact, the e-mail (for the member coupon linked to above) I got said, 'For each valid and current Barnes & Noble Member account, this coupon can be redeemed once at any Barnes & Noble retail store and once online at bn.com.'"

If you can't understand that, I don't know what else to tell you. If you have a B&N Member account, you get one shot at each venue. If you don't, the coupon is not for you. Period.


So this was simply your (erroneous) opinion, likely a result of your not reading the offer carefully (as demonstrated by your above statement) and had no backing whatsoever from B&N.

Thanks for clearing that up.

OK, this thing is a COUPON.

Retailers spend big bucks in advertising to get coupons into the hands of their potential customers. They also GO OUT OF THEIR WAY at B&N to collect email addresses [I work there] so that they can email coupons to everyone on their list [including non-members]. They regularly send out a 25% off coupon, which is good for everyone. They also DO NOT enforce the one coupon per account garbage [even if they wanted to, they couldn't possibly keep track]. Besides, most everyone has an uncle/brother/sister/cousin/former roommate who has the card, and just gives their phone number instead of flashing the card.

I personally don't find it deceptive, because the company charges an outrageous fee in the first place--$25 a year, for 10% off, when EVERYTHING is cheaper either online, or somewhere else, [Spider Man 3 SALE PRICE - $32.xx] and when the competition's card [Borders] is FREAKING FREE!

Stop whining like a corporate tool. I work there, and I can guarantee that no one in my store really cares, as long as you're in the store SPENDING MONEY.

My wife bought something at B&N with this last week.

Our prior membership card has lapsed, and she forgot to take the coupon with her.

I gave her the coupon's numbers via cell phone, the cashier entered the numbers via keypad, and the 'coupon' was accepted.

Thanks for posting this Master Pirate Chambers!

As far as 'fraud' goes - everyone here realizes that Chambers is a 'pirate', right?
