This is essentially the same coupon as the earlier one that expired 9/4. It exisits on a different site (visitborders.com) and the expiration date has been bumped up for two days now. So it could go beyond 9/8 - who knows. The link:

FYI - there is/was an ongoing debate over at dvdtalk about the validity of this coupon but it has since been confirmed that its legit.

The link, for me, produces nothing but a blank page.

Works for me. As of this morning the date has been extended to September 13. The coupon says 30% off with a purchase of $10 or more.

The wording gives the impression that the coupon is to be used in conjunction with signing up for their Border's Rewards Program...but that is certainly not made clear.

Hmmm. Still works for me.

Maybe if you copy & paste the link into a new browser window?

I got a blank page when I went there. I reloaded the page & the coupon appeared.

the coupon is flash, and is normally blocked by an adblocker.

I used this yesterday at my local Borders to great effect. I got a copy of Double Indemnity...which I have NOT been able to find anywhere else.

While it was marked down to $22.99, the regular price was $26.99. 30% off 26.99 is $8.10...bringing the price down to $18.89. Not a terrific deal...but a deal, never-the-less, on a title I was having a hard time finding.

Even DeepDiscountDVD.com has Double Indemnity listed for $19.85...so I'm happy.

Bottom line--the coupon works.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

My wife and I used a bunch of these today--IN CONJUNCTION WITH our personal shopping day (we are using the same Rewards card). Terrific savings on books and DVDs. We used them at different Borders stores in our area.

As noted in another thread...the Rewards Personal Shopping Days can be used in conj8unction with ANY other savings at Borders. Very nice! Posted Image

DVD-related: I purchased the Hitchcock/Fonda film "The Wrong Man". At a regular price of $14.99 minus 30% = $10.49 minus the 10% = $9.44 final price. Posted Image

Just wondering...it says "one coupon per customer per valid period".

How do they know if you've already used it? Anyone had any luck using it more than once?

Actually, my wife and I usually check out at the same time...separately...each using a coupon...AND the same Rewards card (they give you more than one when you sign up). Never a problem. We've done it a few times.

We have also used this same coupon on at least three different occasions.

Just like Mike, I've used them twice in the same day and others I've used one a day on every day that the coupon is valid so they ain't keeping track. Posted Image

Thanks guys. Have you been also using your Borders rewards card, or the same credit card, with each purchase? Because by default I usually scan my rewards card and use the same credit card. Maybe if I'm ultra paranoid I won't scan my rewards card and use my debit card instead, unless you guys have gotten away with it Posted Image

I love how the "expiration" date on this one keeps getting pushed a little more every couple of days.

Oh well, it got me "To Kill a Mockingbird" for $20 out the door.

Carlo: You really ARE paranoid, aren't you?!?! Posted Image What's the worst thing that can happen, the Border's Reward police come to the register and test your midichlorian levels? Posted Image

I use the same Rewards Card (for the discount) and MC Debit card (to pay) everytime...as does my wife. And like I reported earlier...often we are at side-by-side registers checking out when we do this. No worries, mate!

If they did test, mine would be off the charts.

Now good through 10-10-06.

I need to print some of these up for myself and thought I'd bring it back up to the top.
