B&N coupon: $5 off if you buy Two Books and spend $10+ [before or after coupon?]

A new coupon is running until Tuesday night at the Barnes and Noble website. If you buy two books on more in the same transaction, and spend $10+, you can get $5 off the order with coupon code STACKED. The usual exclusions apply. Pre-orders are also excluded from this particular coupon.

It is not clear whether you have to spend $10 _before_ the coupon, or _after_ the coupon. Their shopping cart will tell you for sure.

Independently of the coupon, a redistribution of the old Apple Price Fixing e-Book Settlement is in progress, so if you find small store credits in your e-book seller accounts, this is probably it. They are stored as “gift cards”.

Strategically this is good for books and such that have the same price everywhere, whether they are big photography books or camera guides, or instructional guides. Publishers love having price control, so coupons like this are a good way to get a discount on books that are price fixed.

The Clearance section is another place to look for deals. You can drill down the sub-categories or go directly to the Photography Clearance section. There’s also this 30% – 75% off Clearance page.

But wait, there’s more! Barnes and Noble has over 90 leather bound Collectible Editions of various classics old and new, from Jane Austen to Star Wars and Dune and Alice in Wonderland and Lovecraft and more!
