I don’t know if I’m missing something but I don’t see anything about getting any bonus card or discount of any type when I click on the link for the Barnes and Noble free $10 gift card above. No information about a time limit or expiration date is included anywhere so that says it should still be available. I don’t know what’s going on. I’m pretty disappointed.

Hi Cindy – Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I just did some searching and found that this Barnes & Noble deal was only good through November 22nd. I updated the list and am so sorry for your trouble! -Lisa
Thanks for checking. Now I understand why I couldn’t find the information, lol. No problem.
