Looking for a super easy last minute gift or fun treat for the whole family? A Barnes & Noble membership might be just the thing.
1-3 Fabulous Memories
I spent MANY hours in grad school at my neighborhood Barnes & Noble cafe tables slaving over papers and laughing with my classmates. When Daniel and I were first dating we’d often swing through for an easy date. Now with Teddy you can find us killing time wandering the aisles. I love checking out the new releases in the Teen Fantasy and Adventure section, Daniel loves flipping through the music magazines which can’t be found anywhere else, and Teddy loves reading with us in the kids section. Whether we’re picking up a new release at a discount or stopping in for a snack at the cafe it’s time together that I cherish.
4-5 Free Shipping and FAST Shipping
And while I do love wandering aisle I love online shipping! I am a sucker for free shipping and when I order off of BN.com. With my membership the orders ship for free. Not just that but it ships fast in just 1-3 days.
6-9 Stuffed Pretzels, Peanut Butter Cup Cookies, Brie Sandwiches, and Cafe Drinks
Okay maybe not just those, I have a serious weakness for the cafe food and treats at Barnes & Noble. I remember a time that I practically lived off the stuffed pretzels and I still can’t resist getting one of their peanut butter cookies every time we’re in. There are so many yummy items on their menu that I’m hoping to try and of course it’s all a bonus that members get discounts on the cafe goodies too!
10 Kids Club
I was excited to find a new perk of the membership that now includes an easy way to sign up for their free kids club. With the Kids Club the little ones (up to age 12) receive a free treat for their birthday – a birthday cupcake, cookie or rice krispy treat and a $5 rewards card for every $100 spent on kids stuff.
11-12 40% off Hardcover Best Sellers and Other Great Discounts
I love that with my membership, I can snatch up the latest best selling hardcover at 40% off and that pretty much everything else they sell (including toys and cafe items) for 10% everyday. In fact when we went in last week they had a promotion that gave members 20% offWAHOO. If you don’t know, they have some crazy amazing exclusive items that you can’t find anywhere else -incredible books, commissioned gift items, and really unique creative toys! Barnes & Noble is actually one of my favorite places to find interesting gifts.
13 Special Notifications Right to My Inbox
With 3 full time businesses, a super active kiddo and just normal life I feel like I can’t remember anything and don’t have the time to research fun activities. It probably sounds silly but I LOVE my membership emails. I love knowing when special events like the Harry Potter and Star Wars aisles are happening, getting exclusive discounts that are easy for me to look up and access, and of course the book and gift suggestions. Today we took advantage of $1 Cafe drinks thanks to the email!
If you have someone who loves to read or just want to treat yourself or your family to a unique gift that lasts the whole year giving the gift of a Barnes & Noble membership is a great choice!
