How much is shipping on games? I dont know if I want to waste the time for this. Pretty sweet though if you can do preorders.

Edit: I see it's $3 standard shipping for a game.

Anyone know if these will attach to your B&N account so that you can buy ebooks? I'd like to have some of these for buying books for my Nook, but am concerned that I would be limited to 3, or even just the one? I was hoping to get 5 and load up my Nook! :)

So once these are confirmed and printed, there really isn't anything Groupon can do to deactivate or refund them right? I know LivingSocial canceled a bunch of the Amazon codes but it seems like Groupon is too efficient and fast for it's own good .. unless somehow they can auto cancel coupons that have already been created?

I don't know, but I made two orders on B&N.com, and one says it's already shipping soon. The other wont ship for a week because it's a game preorder.

Well one of you is talking about groupon and the other about B&N, but no I highly doubt groupon can do anything once you get them. Also a memo apparently went out to B&N saying these are to be treated like gift cards in store so there shouldnt be an issue there. Theres a post on SD with the memo that went out.

And online it's 3 per order. I'd doubt B&N will give a crap since they probably already got their money from Groupon for this deal.

I dont know anything for a fact though so take that for what its worth.

I didn't really even want a Nook Color, but I know my mom really liked it when she saw it over the Holidays .. so it's worth a shot ... I didn't try on the Amazon deal a couple weeks ago, but this seems like a good day to gamble

But you can only get it for $30 off with the 3 coupon limit online ... so no, you can't get it for 50% off, unless you feel like buying things and returning them for giftcards.

So just to make sure, before I jump in. I can buy 3 of these deals by changing the city, then order Dead Space 2 for effectively $30+s/h? Seems like a good deal.

I can confirm it's working up through checkout. Now the only thing that can go wrong is B&N cancels orders. If they do, I am royally fucked. I doubt theyd do that though as the coupons are working just like a gift card at checkout.

If not, I'm placing all my preorders for the year right now. $36.91 for each game isnt bad imo.

Not that I'm advocating this ... but the return policy for games bought on B&N.com is that you have 30 days to return it to Gamestop ... *cough*1/2off3DS*cough* ;)

Bleh, after buying the 3 groupon coupons, I placed the order only to find out s/h + tax was like $9. Getting Dead Space 2 for $39 is still a decent price I suppose.

Hmm am I understanding your implication that we can return the discounted purchases from B&N for full price at GS? Interesting.

Apparently this is now the Tallahassee deal of the day (it wasn't last I saw the Tallahassee page) and only 34 have been bought.

From the sound of some of the posts, am I understanding correctly that you get the gift card immediately?

Just don't want to play the waiting game like the Living Social deal.


Edit: Just read that the Nook Color was pulled from shelves yesterday to try to correct the problem with it being able to be rooted. Since buying a Nook and rooting it was exactly what I was planning on doing, I guess I'll pass :-(.

Ok, so just to let people know...yes, you get the card automatically. And for people wanting to buy more than $60 items? I just spoke with a Barnes and Noble CSR at their phone number, and she told me that if you choose pay by phone, when you call in you can use any number of gift cards on your order.

I thought the same...but I just did it. And it's an automated system - you punch them all in on the keypad, never even have to talk to a person. I now have a 250gb Xbox 360 headed my way for a total of $140 including 2 day shipping and tax.

Uncharted 3, Tomb Raider, Infamous 2, Bulletstorm, and Skyrim

Was going to order The Last Guardian and Batman but they dont have TLG and I cant cancel my Amazon order for Batman since I used promotions on it.

I only ordered Bulletstorm since it releases soon. I want to make sure it works.

Edit: So yeah had to call the CC company. Now I dont know if I want the 3DS or just a couple more games instead...agh

how long does it take you to get the groupon codes once you purchase them. i decided to get skyrim and uncharted 3 also. i was thinking of dragon age2 but you know that will have a goty/dlc version eventually...

Almost immediately for me. I'm not sure that you can still buy multiples (by using one account and several cities) though. Someone on SD said they put an end to it.
