They had no codes or special CD packages to give away with the readers yet.
All they could suggest is someone at corporate pulled the trigger too early.
As a Reward member, I received a promotional email from Borders on the 26th for their after Christmas deals. On the bottom was a promotion for the $50 ebook credit on the Sony Reader. When I went to purchase the Reader that day, I expected the $50 credit but not the 20% discount. That's why I was so elated when I got home and had to share my experience at this forum. If this was indeed a mistake by the cashier, I apologize to everyone who was inconvenienced by my post while trying to get the same deal.
