Barnes and Noble Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

Amazon kicked off their Black Friday shopping season on November 22, and Barnes and Noble is also starting early. Learn about the steals and deals from B&N.

On November 22, 2010, Barnes and Noble gave some hints about their Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Most of their deals require you to go to the store, but there are some online shopping deals as well. They are not listing the Barnes and Noble Nook as a Black Friday/Cyber Monday special, so head to Best Buy early on Friday November 26 to grab a Nook ebook reader for $99.

One of the strategies to save money all year on books, movies, and Nook accessories at Barnes and Noble is to have a Barnes and Noble membership. The first 25 people who make $50 Barnes and Noble purchases on Black Friday will get a free annual B&N membership, which normally costs $25. This deal is only for in-store purchases.

Barnes and Noble is offering a $10 gift card with every $100 gift card purchase, and this deal applies to in-store and online purchases. If you are going to buy a Nook or Nookcolor this year, you could buy the gift card, get the $10 bonus card, and then apply it to your own order. If Barnes and Noble will let you put the $100 across different gift cards, this would be a good time to get some gifts for teachers. A $10 or $20 gift card to Barnes and Noble would be a great gift for a teacher, because it is a gift that can be used for personal use or classroom use.

In-store and online shoppers can get Barnsie, a Barnes and Noble themed teddy bear, for free after a $25 purchase. Every year, Barnsie has a different twist; sometimes it is a different sweater, and in 2009 the teddy bear had a little messenger bag. This year’s picture shows the 2010 Barnsie with a little bow in a gift bag.

The November 22, 2010 media release indicates that Barnes and Noble is big into coupons for Black Friday 2010. They will have a 30% off coupon that can be used in-store or online beginning Wednesday, November 24, 2010 and it can be used all the way through Sunday, November 28, 2010.

If you are looking for Nook accessories, you can get one for 25% off with the purchase of a Nook matte screen film kit, which is normally $15, but may have some Black Friday pricing. If you are shopping for a boxed set for teens, Barnes and Noble will have a deal for 50% off one box set for children or teens.

Barnes and Noble hasn’t released a lot of information about Cyber Monday yet, but the online-only shopping deals will include 25% off for members and free shipping for non-members. Barnes and Noble will also have some deals for Christmas shopping, like $5 off toys that are $10 and 50% off best sellers.

If you are interested in learning more about Nookcolor, Barnes and Noble will have demonstrations for their color ereader tablet in some stores. You can also see the Nook and Nookcolor at Walmart, who is having a lot of Black Friday sales worth stopping in for on November 26, 2010, too.
