Borders Coupon, 30% off One Item, Good Only on 7/12

Borders is doing some work to their website, and if you go their now you are given the message:

We're Sorry!
Our site will be back soon.
We're implementing site improvements and invite you to check back after 8:00 AM.

To make it up to you, use promo code THANKS712 and get 30% off the list price of any one item at Borders.com.

In the small type it says all electronics, including ereaders, are excluded.

It also says certain ebooks are excluded, see the product page to find which ones. I suspect this would be agency books.

If anybody gets a coupon to work on their eBooks could you let us know? I got an email coupon over the weekend that had that same language and I tried 4 or 5 different books and couldn't get it to work, and I never did find anything on a product page that mentioned coupon eligibility.

The coupon does work on some books. They have to be non-agency books. A good test is if the book is available on Fictionwise the coupon will work. Another way to check is to look up the book on amazon for kindle. At the top of the listing it says Sold by: and then lists the publisher. If it says "This price was set by the publisher" directly under this, your coupon won't work.

This agency stuff is a load of crock. Not being able to use a coupon is ridiculous. I can go to the store and use a coupon on a pbook, so why not an ebook.

I tried it on The Lost City of Z and this is what it says

30% Off List Price on Any One Item - Unless Online Discount Already Applied
Cart is not eligible for promotion


So I guess it is non-Agency priced books that haven't already been discounted. I don't think I have any of those on my Wishlist.

So, pretty much as far as ebooks go, they're giving away snow in the winter. Typical.

Well, if you should want a pbook, perhaps it will help.
