Thread regarding Barnes & Noble layoffs

What id--ts come up with these stupid ideas? A 3 month member card for $7.99

Remember 12 months is still $25 and to make it worth it you have to spend over $250 a year.

Here's some of the conversation...

-Our store isn't doing it. Can someone post the "fine print" please. I would like to be prepared if it does come our way.

-The 3 months can only be paid for via credit card, because it auto renews for a full year two weeks before the three month period ends. Customers can opt out of the auto renew like normal. Also it is only available for purchases $50 and under, although I’ve heard some stores have it at $75. At my store we were also told that we can only offer the 3 month after we’ve already given the full year spiel and the customer declines, so no offering the 3 month right off the bat.

-Thank you.

  • I hope this doesn't roll out. If it does though, I'll use it as a tool to sell the $25 annual fee.

  • So a customer comes i to buy one book - gets our full spiel - including an explanation of the ream of paper the register spits out with their receipt, and then they get another spiel on top of that? Hmmmmmm that's a bit annoying

-We started at my store yesterday and I got 3 memberships with it that night just while going up to cover people at cashwrap. I think it could bring a lot of people in once we get to the point where the 3 months includes December since that would let people try it out while Christmas shopping.

Sounds like they don’t expect to be in business after 3 months ! And don’t want a class action suit to repay the full $25.year.

“ANYONE who buys a membership is a FOOL... have to spend more than $250 to make it save you anything.
The coupons don’t always work. And who knows if they’ll be open in a year.”
