    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! [​IMG]

    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

    09.74
    11.99
    22.99
    44.72

    minus the 10 off 35

    total

    34.72

    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.

    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:

    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. [​IMG]

    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.

    [​IMG] 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! [​IMG]

    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!
