Make that 10-13-06; we've procrastinated but are heading there now!
10-17-06 Expiration now.
10-18-06: guess I'm heading back this weekend
How anticlimactic. So I print out a couple of coupons, ready to give Borders my cash, but it turns out that 99% of the "non-sale" stuff (which is what the coupon is good for) is still not competitive with other retailers even after the 30% discount!
I did buy one thing: Seven Samurai. That came out to roughly $35. Yes I could have bought it from DVD Planet for a couple of bucks less, but shipping would have washed that out, and I got instant gratification this way.
Yeah...you really have to be selective since this coupon is clearly for regular price only.
HOWEVER...here's a different coupon...which you might find works more to your advantage. Nowhere does it say it cannot be used with the sale price...which makes sense since it is not a "one item" coupon. It even makes the point that it CAN be used with a personally shopping day discount (although, I believe, all coupons can).
This is $10 off a purchase of $35 or more @ Borders.
Not sure if this date will also keep getting extended. This might be it. Expiration is 10-18-2006.
Carlo: I wonder if you might have done better on Seven Samurai with this coupon?
i used that today.
12.99 calender minus 25% with coupon ...= 9.74 (teachers discount)
14.99 high anxiety ---- 20% with coupon =11.99 (not sure)
29.99 brazil new edition sale price ..........=22.99
minus the 10 off 35
so i was able to get the teachers discount and another 20% that i dont know what that was.
may have been connected to the teacher thing dvds may only be 20%
we didnt ask for the teacher %
after she scanned the 10 off she asked if we were teachers, wife is, so she scanned another thing for the additional % off.
i think it works out to about 33% off after all the discounts
So, Tony....the Brazil was $29.99...and the sale price was $22.99? And you got no percentage off for the Brazil DVD?
This was the one-disc? I think my Borders had it for $19.99...but that was the week it was released. They might have raised it since then.
every 3 day or so update
Here's the link to the coupon. Figured it should be bumped along with the thread itself since we are on to a new page:
the perpetual coupon
Mike, you just saved me 30% on the one remaining copy of the OOP (as far as I can tell anyway) Marx Brothers Silver Collection at my local Borders.
How much does it cost to become a Rewards Member?
It's free. If I remember correctly, they give you the card when you make a purchase and then you have to activate it online. Your card may have to be activated before you can use a coupon though.
I just keep going back...printing up a few coupons to keep in my car in case I find myself at one of my local Borders. Then, I bump the thread! Glad to help Travis!
Dave: Signing up is easy. And it just allows them to track your purchases. The upside is...after you spend so much $$$ they give you a "personal shopping day" in which you can take another 10% off all your purchases for an entire day....and it IS allowed to be used on sale items and with coupons. No problems!
I had jumped the gun earlier at being excited about this coupon until I read the fine print about it being off of regular prices only.
And then I recently bought Pro Tools and needed a couple of instructions books for the holidays, so I didn't want to pay Amazon 1 day shipping to get it here by Turkey Day, since I was traveling visiting family. I finally used this coupon for the Pro Tools books and woo-hoo! near Amazon prices but with instant gratification!
Thanks again to everyone who keeps us updated!
