UPDATED--Deal is now available through groupon.com! Don't miss this deal! You can purchase a gift certificate (through 2/6/11, limited quantity available) to save 50% at Barnes & Noble!...and it's valid on sale items, too! Just buy this Groupon (listed under Chicago Deals): $10 for a $20 Barnes & Noble Gift Certificate! Expires Apr 10, 2011 Limit 1 per person. Limit 1 per transaction. Valid in-store or online. Valid on sale items. Groupon value reduces by $10 on 4/11/11, except where prohibited. Groupon issued by Barnes & Noble Marketing Services LLC. (see Groupon site for further details)
Update 2/3: I'm a little concerned about this deal as I'm not able to access it directly through the Groupon site (even when choosing Chicago as a location)...so take the deal at your own risk. Better safe than sorry, I think. UPDATE 2/4: This deal is now available if you go directly to groupon.com/madison or (/chicago, /lexington, & /many other cities) or through this link. I just ordered this myself! :-)
If you haven't used groupon before, sign up at groupon.com to be able to get this deal. If you have used groupon before, just go to groupon.com and click the "buy" button for the deal. You will then be able to enter your e-mail address & groupon password. Then, you will be able to purchase as usual from groupon (your payment information comes available & you don't have to re-enter). I was even able to use my $5 "groupon bucks" toward this...so, $5 for $20 worth of books/toys, etc.! Yippee!
Thanks, For the Mommas!
