Borders Book Store Coupons And More
My wife and I are avid readers and one of our favorite things to do is go browse in a book store. Buying a new hardcover book is something that we both enjoy. The problem is that these books are very expensive. Luckily for us, we found out that we can often get these books for 25-30% off using coupons.
I didn’t even know that a major book store chain like Borders would offer coupons, but they do. In fact, they regularly offer a 25-30% off coupon on 1 book. Considering that many hardcover books cost $20, a 30% savings equates to a $6 savings. Saving $6 for a few minutes of searching is well worth the effort.
So where do I find my Borders coupons? I do a search for them at fatwallet. They pop up frequently so keep checking. There are many coupon sites out there, so you may have some luck searching there also. Here is a link to a post on fatwallet on 9/7/06 for a 30% off coupon:
Do you spend more than $200 at Borders every year? If you do you should really consider getting a borders rewards card. With the rewards card 5% of purchases go into a holiday account. When your account reaches $10 you can use that towards your next purchase. It’s not a lot of money, but it’s a free $10 if you are going to buy the books anyway.
Believe it or not there is actually a Borders Visa rewards credit card. If you do a lot of shopping at Borders you may want to consider getting the card. This is because this card is a 3/2/1% cash back credit card. The 3% cash back applies to purchases made at Borders. Just so you know, 3% is a very good percentage for cash back.
The credit card is not a bad card to have at all. This is especially true if you purchase a lot of books. There is no annual fee and they are running a promotion right now that gives you a $20 Borders gift card and 1000 bonus points on you first purchase if you sign up.
If you really do spend a significant amount of money on books every year you should consider the coupons, rewards cards, and credit cards that Borders offers. If you don’t take advantage of these programs, you are leaving money on the table when you leave the store.
