I will never buy a signed edition from B&N again!

1

I preordered a signed editiin of Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson 4 months in advance. The book arrived with no signature. Packaging slip said signed edition. Customer service very poor. Basically sorry nothing we can do. I was told when they run out they send out non signed books. I was offered a $5 appeasement. Then they claimed I was sent a signed book, basically told me I was lieing.

so dissapointing

I recently bought a NOOK. I was so excited as I live on a small island that has no book store. After registering my Nook I tried to start buying books. I received an email from Barnes & Noble stating that you must live in the US in order to buy books!!!!! I was not told this when I bought my nook. They will not even let me buy with my Pay Pal account. They told me to return my Nook, but I am no longer in the US to go back to the store. BUYER BEWARE, only buy if you live in the US, they do not want to cater to us in the Bahamas, even though we like to read book too.

Second to Amazon

4

I like barns and noble as they have a big selection, often have discounts, and have in store pick up; however, I always compare with Amazon and there are some important the gs to note when making a decision. If you are a teacher, you can get an educators card and get a discount on items for the classroom. Also, if you sign up for emails, they frequently send 20% off coupon codes. However, you need to spend more than $25 for free shipping. If you select pick up in a store, the price will likely be higher at the store compared to the website. I do like that you can see what it's,s are available in the store and place a hold. They send you an email or text when they pull it from the shelf. I have used this feature when I want to compare items or look through them first. I often then will go back home and order it online or from Amazon as it can be cheaper. Product Selection Not as big as Amazon but pretty decent. Product Pricing Prices vary between website and store. The prices are usually higher in the store. Shipping and Returns Need to spend $25 or more for free shipping.

Great Book Store Website

5

BarnesAndNoble.com is a great book website. I always get Barnes and Noble gift cards and even though they have a brick and mortar store nearby ,I find that the website is alot better for me as it gives me a lot of time to browse at my leisure. They have millions of books, dvds and cds and other items such as electronics and accessories. There is an enormous selection and they are always running great sales so you are sure to find a book or something that you would want. There is a loyalty program as well but it charges a monthly fee. Sometimes they have coupons as well If you are looking for a book or an e book , you will find one here as well as many other items. Buy the items on sale though as the regular prices are pretty expensive. The website is also very easy to navigate and I would recommend it to anyone. Take a look and I am sure that you will find something you would love to read or listen too.

Barnes and Noble Online

4

The Barnes and Noble website is a great site for birthday and holiday shopping. That is the main time that I use the Barnes and Noble website. Their prices are usually less than out local bookstore, but more than some of the big box that sell books as well. Ease of Use The Barnes and Noble website is good if you know the name of the book or the specific author for which you are looking. However, if you are just browsing for a book, nothing beats going to the physical store itself. Product Selection The Barnes and Noble website will always have the latest books available and the classics too. There are better online shopping sites if you are looking for an obscure book or maybe a small, local author. Product Pricing The Barnes and Noble site has pretty standard pricing related to the "sticker price" on the book jackets. Shipping and Returns Around holiday time, wait to order from the Barnes and Noble website until they announce that they will be offering free shipping. Their overall shipping costs are pretty standard, but can significantly increase the cost of a ten dollar book.

Great website for books!

5

I have used the BarnesandNoble.com website a few times to order books. It is a great website and very easy to use. They have books on the website that may not be available in their stores also. The site also gives you the option to pre-order a book that has not been released, so that way you can make sure you get a copy before it gets sold out. Also, if you spend $25.00 or more, you get free shipping on your order. The customer service department is very friendly and helpful, and the returns/exchanges are very easy to do if you need to return or exchange a book. I am very happy with my experience using the BarnesandNoble.com website, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Ease of Use The site is very easy to use. Product Selection They offer a huge selection of books and products. You can also find books on the website that may not be available in the stores. Customer Service The customer service department is very friendly and helpful. Shipping and Returns You can get fee shipping on your orders when you spend $25.00 or more.

My Go To Place For Books and DVDs

5

I shop at my local Barnes & Noble store all the time and love grabbing a coffee in their cafe but sometimes they just don't have an item that I want in stock and I need to order it online. I love that as a Barnes & Noble Member (for which I pay $25 a year) I get free, unlimited shipping on their website (as well as other perks, including in store discounts). Shipping usually takes about three or four days so it is quite fast. They have a fabulous selection of books and DVDs and are my first choice whenever I need to purchase a book. They also offer the ability to check in store availability so I can see if an item is in stock before I drive over and wander around looking for it only to discover it is not available. Ordering is super easy and they accept PayPal as a payment option which is really great. They do accept up to three gift cards at a time online which is good and bad. It's great that you can pay with a gift card, but not so great that you have to type in the giant number along with the PIN every time you wan to use a gift card. There is no option to store the card's value on your account as there is on Amazon. Overall, I highly recommend Barnes & Noble. Their prices are comparable to other retailers and they always offer tons of percentage off coupons so you can get quite a deal. Shipping is good and returns can be made in the store. I've never had a single problem ordering from them.

Good site

I live in a small town and our library does not carry a whole lot of books. I am always needing something for school, and without a local bookstore, I had to turn to online shopping. I always find the books that I need for school on barnesandnoble.com. Most of the books are reasonably priced but there are some that are pretty over priced. Also, I have been able to buy some of the textbooks I need for a lower price than the price offered at the bookstore at my school. The website is set up nicely and it is pretty easy to follow. They have everything sectioned off into different categories so it is easier to go directly to whatever it is you are wanting to purchase. I like to browse through the best sellers section because I see a lot of books that I have not heard of, but would probably be interested in reading. I also like to shop for books for my two year old daughter on this site. They have great educational books that have small toys to go along with them and she always loves those. Shipping is reasonable and my books never take a long time to be delivered. You can get free shipping if you spend I think twenty five dollars, and I almost always meet that requirement. Product Selection There are tons and tons of books to choose from and even other items. Product Pricing Some things are perfectly priced while others seem to be a little more expensive than they should be.

So many great gifts

5

I absolutely adore shopping at Barnes and noble dot com! I feel that books, movies, and music are wonderful gifts to give. When I have a family member or friend to shop for I almost always end up at Barnes and Noble dot com to buy a fantastic gift. The selection online is so amazing. They offer classic literature to new releases. Sometimes I find myself on this particular website for hours browsing favorites. I am so impressed how organized the website is. I can always find exactly what I'm looking for. I do continue to plan on shopping here and also I would recommend this website to anyone looking for a book, movie, or a CD. Ease of Use This website is extremely easy to use. They have a search bar making it easy to find exactly what you're looking for! Product Selection The product selection on this particular website is also outstanding. Product Pricing Sometimes, I did find that this particular store is more expensive but the quality is always very good. Customer Service Outstanding customer service! I once had an issue with a return and the customer service representative was so helpful! She walked me through every step and I felt very secure that I would receive my return fast. Shipping and Returns Shipping and returns are fairly easy. The one thing that I don't like about the returns is it takes a long time for them to refund your money unless you actually go to the store itself.

I like Barnes & Noble that is because they have so many books I like to read, from cook books to normal books, and magazine. They have everything i'm looking for. I have ordered books from the website in the past and they do have a great selection of titles. The site is great I have found books that were on sale for around 20% off and above which was cool, the experience is great. They have so many books on sale for cheap. I would definity buy books from them again. Ease of Use The site is easy to navigate and they also have short descriptions of the books I was looking at which was very helpful to me. Product Selection The Barnes & Noble website has alot of book and I mean alot, about every book I was looking for was there, and all on sale which was great to me. Product Pricing They have very low prices, and I really enjoyed buying things from their site because on it. Shipping and Returns Their shipping is great, they ship UPS which is good and the books come nicely packaged.
