Not sure there is much savings in their bundles. For example:

The Walt Longmire Mystery Series Boxed Set Volume 1-4 [NOOK Book]
by Craig Johnson

$48.99

Yeah, if you want to get picky, some of the "bundles" cost more (by pennies) than buying the books separately. Four books at $7.99, one omnibus at $31.99 - the omnibus costs $.03 more. I know it's not much, and sometimes the bundle is the better deal - like if you have one coupon and can use it on four books instead of one this way - but they're not always "deals".

Could you elaborate as to why this is an "amazing offer", gabby? There don't seem to be any actual savings here at all.

Maybe the thread should be retitled to this:

"Save 3 pennies on B&N Bundle"

Just a thought, anyway. (I had a thought yesterday, too.)

Actually, the title should be "Pay 3 Pennies More by Bundling with B&N."

Glad you had a thought two days in a row. Thinking is good sometimes.

It seems like most are publisher created bundles so there may not be much if any savings. Amazon has the same prices for most although a few were cheaper.

That's how B&N phrased it. I got the same email. If they think it's amazing, then it must be.

That *is* why it's an amazing offer - they're charging you more than you would pay separately.

It's amazing because we're all amazed that they consider it a deal. :P
