B&N Buy More, Save More Coupon (up to 20% off)

If you are planning a big book purchase, the Barnes & Noble website has a “Buy More, Save More” coupon. Coupon code YESANDYES gets you a discount based on your order total:

+ 10% off orders of $35+
+ 15% off orders of $75+
+ 20% off orders of $150+
+ expires Tuesday night
+ some exclusions apply as usual

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!

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.

PSA: O’Reilly’s will no longer sell eBooks individually on their website

O’Reilly specializes in technical books and ebooks, including some camera and imaging related (eg Photoshop and LR and such). They were the vanguard of DRM-free ebooks. They are NOT going out of the ebook market, but they will stop selling ebooks individually on their website. They are instead focusing on their Netflix-style subscription service where you can read as much and as many as you want as long as you are a paying subscriber.

Existing O’Reilly purchases will continue to be available. They also have options to download and send-to-cloud your existing ebooks. They will continue to sell ebooks individually through the various online ebookstores (Kindle, etc).

Pre-order new Nikon D5600 Books by Julie Adair King and by David Busch

This may be a first. The books for a camera are listed at Amazon before the camera itself! There’s two of them now! Julie Adair King’s “Nikon D5600 For Dummies” is available for pre-order in paperback for $30 with an April 17 (20170 release estimate, while David Busch’s Nikon D5600 guide is available for pre-order at Amazon for $40 with a May 19 in 2017 release date estimate. This is the paperback edition, under the RockyNook brand (not to be confused with the Barnes and Noble Nook). Amazon has a pre-order price-guarantee [see Details], so if the price drops until its release date, you will pay the lowest price during the time period between pre-order and release date.

PS: 3rd-party goofballs (okay, sellers) have created stub listings for the Nikon D5600 at Amazon, but Amazon’s own listing is not there yet.

Extended Again: $5 off purchase of $15+ in Books with coupon (ends Mon 3am ET)

The current expiration date of this promotion is Monday 12/10/16 Thursday [yes, it got extended again] at 3am Eastern, so unless it gets extended again, it is last call for the coupon code GIFTBOOK that gets you $5 off purchase of $15+ in printed books at Amazon by Amazon itself. You can use this coupon even if you used the previous $10 off $25+ coupon in November (I used them both because reading is fun-da-mental!). The usual free shipping terms apply (Prime or $25+ in books or $49+ in general merchandise, physical goods sold or fulfilled by Amazon itself).

PS: some of the calendars may be eligible for this promotion as well. I can’t test them all, but you can tell by adding to cart and seeing if they get discounted. It may depend on how they are coded in their system or maybe it’s some kinds of calendars but not others, so YMMV.

$5 off $15+ Printed New Condition Books (ends Thur 3am ET) [Extended] [Updated]

If you missed the Black Friday book coupon, or if you want to buy some more books, you are in luck. Amazon is back with another printed book coupon, coupon code GIFTBOOK gets you $5 off a purchase of $15+ in printed books sold and shipped by Amazon itself, in new condition, book purchases (not rentals). Offer ends Thursday Monday at 3am ET. These are the detailed terms. The usual free shipping terms apply (Prime or $25+ in books or $49+ in general merchandise sold or fulfilled by Amazon).

UPDATE 12/5/16 PM: this has been extended yet again. You can only use this particular coupon once per Amazon account, so if you missed it, here’s another opportunity. Other things may also qualify, eg photo-calendars. Only way to find out for certain is to add to cart and enter the coupon and see if it gets discounted.
