In store coupon here:
B&N | 2.16 - 20% Off any one item - Generic Store
Heard there was 30% off coupon out there?
US30% off one item at Barnes & Noble with code L775CEDF61D74
Link just shows me their "Vinyl Store".
yes but use the code in the text
Does that work in store by any chance?
Thanks! I might find something worthwhile at 30% off.
The Bowie "Who Can I Be Now" Vinyl box would be a great way to use that 30% off!!!
Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976)
Thanks, one-time use today, clerk had to override transaction.
My wallet is not particularly happy with you right now.
Ended up grabbing RTJ3 on LP (that 30% dropped it to a much more reasonable price) + Weeknd's Starboy on CD to grab the free ship.
And of course I'll have to stop by my local store today with this one (since I'm a glutton for punishment).
Used a 30% off in-store to grab the new Vangelis "Rosetta" album on vinyl. Came out to less than $19. Thank goodness it is a dead quite pressing, the music demands that much.
Yep, clerk entered it and worked without issue.
Los Lobos "Kiko" on MFSL vinyl for around $30 is a good deal. Original issue- the only other one on vinyl- is super hard to find, and the MFSL sounds great.
Post some other suggestions people!
B&N records are normally overpriced to begin with. What's worth to buy there now? Anyone?
^^^ I dare to say there isn't much point in convincing one with such a preconceived notion. I offer this more for others who might be taken in by your general statement.
B&N in my experience is priced competitively against most brick & mortars in my area. I have several to choose from, B&N happens to be among the closest in proximity. Let's say Amoeba has an album I want for a few bucks cheaper, I'm not driving 40-ish miles in traffic just for such savings.
I often buy new release and B&N exclusive vinyl without a coupon (but with my 10% member discount which certainly helps). Their coupons will often create savings which exceed most brick & mortars in my area and at that point become competitive against the likes of Amazon and sometimes exceeds them as well. Case in point, the Vangelis album I referenced. $19.89 at B&N $29.99 on Amazon.
John Prine S/T (2016 reissue) this is an outstanding reissue, cut by Kevin Gray
Online B&N's prices are competitive with Amazon, in store they're at normal retail pricing. Either way if you use a coupon you save or save big. If you're a member it's 10% off the price in store and then another 20% off that. If buying online the membership gets you free shipping with no minmum purchase.
I visited my local store yesterday and bought the new Ryan Adams album, "Prisoner" which is $18.99. With my membership and coupon it cost me $14.87 with 9.5% sales tax included, not bad right? In addition B&N are selling a version of this title with an exclusive LP jacket (not that that's a significant draw for me).
I'll use the online code as well this weekend. These can be used multiple times while the codes are active, but your purchases must be separate to get the discount each time. In store coupons for members don't necessarily work more than once, but it's always worth trying.
Agree with @DigMyGroove. If you're a member, than 10% off + a 20% coupon = usually the price drops significantly below Amazon prices.
Thanks for mentioning this new Vangelis release, I wasn't aware if it and will definitely purchase one on vinyl.
And to correct my subsequent post, it was $18.89 plus tax after the 10% member discount and 30% coupon.
I found the reissue of Crowded House's Woodface LP worth buying at $16.84, using the 30% coupon. If the store had stocked the band's Together Alone reissue I would have bought that, using the concurrent 20% coupon, for $19.44.
Used the coupon at the local B&N with the discount got the new Sturgill Simpson for less than $6.50!
Got a 30% off code ( 4DQKRKT2K2SL5 ) from a member on Blu-ray.com, and it WORKS on one item, but there's literally nothing I want !?!? I'm not a B & N member, and I did try an experimental buy, i.e. took my cart all the way to the end.
Someone else, or several someone elses can enjoy though.
You do need to price compare. Using the Cars 'Elektra Years' box as an example, both B&N and Amazon are selling the vinyl for $94.99, but the CD's are 40% less at Amazon via 3rd party sellers (after shipping and before tax). Even with the B&N discounts Amazon will still be a few dollars cheaper.
Was browsing and tripped into the Star Wars Ultimate Soundtrack Collection box which they have marked down to $44.99. That should be $31 & change with the 30% coupon.
