How to Check to Balance on Your Barnes & Noble Gift Card and Barnes & Noble eGift Card
One of the hottest gifts this past holiday season was the “e-reader” device. Or is it “eReader”? Or “ereader” maybe. e-Readers translate digital e-books (or eBooks?) so you don’t have to carry around all those paper things.
In any case, pundits (including news outlet MSNBC.com) are estimating that the electronic book devices will be even more popular in 2011 and beyond. Barnes & Noble is a leader in the pack of multitudes with their premier e-reader, the Nook and the NookColor (rated an “Editor’s Choice” by CNET). There are over 2 million digital books available for the Nook or NookColor.
I’ve got about five or six B&N gift cards with random balance amounts scattered around the house. I’m going to gather up all those gift cards and see what get for them collectively at www.bn.com. Perhaps if not the reader, a few e-books, a magazine or e-magazine subscription, the entire Twilight series set in hardcover, the darn college-level Webster’s Dictionary I’ve been meaning to have around for the kids to expand their horizons with… but what the kids want is new DVDs, video games and graphic novels.
Well, I’ll also check the huge bn.com sale going on right now too, with 50% off “thousands” of titles they say.
Then I’m going to buy a discount gift card from Plastic Jungle in the amount I need for a NookColor. If I buy today, I can save 9%! I’m getting a discount on an item that doesn’t go on sale!
