This one is pretty big, and awesome if you still have books on your summer reading list!  Starting today through May 23rd, Borders is offering a coupon code for 50% off any one item sitewide!

To get the discount you must be a Borders rewards member (it’s free) and use code  BLP2566Y during checkout.

Don’t forget to go through Ebates to get 6% cash back on top of your 50% off!

      With all due respect to Jenny, do not use eBates.  I have been a member since the mid 90's.  Loved them!  However, I spend approximately $10,000 on-line per year to sell on-line, and they did not pay me for a huge chunk of that!  Since it's virtually at only 2 stores, it stuck out immediately upon receiving my check that almost ALL of it was not paid.  In trying to work it out, I was met w/resistance and a great deal of work and time proving my purchases.  They finally paid what was owed, but the manager I dealt with, in the end, made me feel as though he was doing me a favor paying me what was owed as the retailer never paid them for my purchases as they did not submit their tracking tickets in time.  If he had handled me differently, I would have been happy to be reasonable and patient, but this was NOT the case.  I now use Mr. Rebates.  I hope this helps someone.  Check your credits if you currently use eBates!

        I agree – 'have been keeping tabs on my eBates and, despite two recent purchases and shipments received, my balance has not changed in a long time.

    • $99 eReaders you can get for $49!!!  GREAT Christmas presents!!

      • Nemejia

        I tired and it wouldn't take the code for the e-reader

        • mc

          I couldn't purchase the ereader, either.  Was this a one time coupon?

      • Kelly

        I was not able to use it on the ereader either. :(

    • Elizabeth

      Can you use the 50% off code with the BOGO code on paperbacks?

      • WubbiesMommy

        Yes you can!

      • WubbiesMommy

        Yes you can!

    • Nemejia

      It says I already used this promotion… maybe it's a one time use code not for sharing?

    • Rhodna

      I dont' see the 50% off any one.. Where is it?

    • Cathycm195

      You can't use the code for the ereader as it is already discounted. They told me this when I applied the code.

    • Elena

      Each Borders Rewards member gets a specific code.  I have a different one in the email that was sent to me from Borders.

    • vcwatson

      Apparently sitewide doesn't actually mean sitewide. If I see this promotion ANYWHERE I'm going to call their customer service. Very disappointed. I wanted to buy an E-reader

      • Mary

        Are you serious???  You thought you'd get an e-reader at 50% off?  New to couponing???

        • vcwatson

          No. What I thought was “sitewide” meant SITEWIDE. Do you happen to know what that means? It means everything on the site, honey. Apparently you needed to make a silly comment like this to inflate your ego and make you feel smart. If making condescending comments on a coupon website is what makes you feel good about yourself…. well I feel sorry for you.

    • vcwatson

      If anyone knows the link to where Jenny found this promotion- I'd like to have it. Its VERY misleading. If I don't get to buy a tablet with the code (gonna call Customer service)- I'm reporting them to the BBB and never shopping there again.

      • vcwatson

        Or maybe Jenny simple made a post that was misleading.

      • Noemail

        lol… What can the Better Business Bureau do for you, kiddo?

        • Victoriacwatson

          I of course could explain it to you- but you've displayed your foolishness already and I'd probably end up using words you wouldn't understand.

      I received my email from Borders today with this 50% off coupon.  The coupon is interfaced with YOUR Borders Rewards member number and can not be copied, transferred, or reused.  ALSO, this coupon has a lot exclusions that includes EReaders. Coupon expires Monday May 23rd.  My suggestion to this issue is for all to READ THE FINE PRINT BEFORE POSTING any coupon to Southern Savers or other extreme couponing site.

      • Guest

        BTW, my coupon code is completely different from the one Jenny posted.

      • vcwatson

        I agree. I wish there had been more research done to verify the legit-ness of this coupon.

    • Lauren81M

      Sheesh people, lighten up, don't you think you're being a bit harsh?  Maybe it was just a little mistake.  Jenny helps us save so much on the things we really need.  One little mistake on a Border's coupon is not the end of the world!

    • Amandacswift

      I did not get the full 50% either and was hoping to score a great deal on an Andy Andrew's book for my husband for Father's Day. Read the fine print. Overall though I am forever a fan of Southern Savers!

    • Robertsnorman

      Southern Savers is a great site.  Instead of complaining about the Borders coupon, You people need to Thank Jenny for  all she is doing to help you save your money.  Read your coupons, most of them have some kind of restrictions.    Open your own site and then you can chose how you advertise coupons you are finding. .  Meanwhile, stop your complaining

    • rocky

      used it – did not work for a movie i wanted but it did for a cd. it is silly that the % off takes into account something that already on sale. meaning it a cd is 25% off then the coupon will only apply another 50% off…

      i used the code because i was given a gift card recently to i got a cd for a dollar but boarders is way over priced for music and movies i would not buy unless i had a great deal.

    • Jan

      Wow…I never get involved in these stupid “comment board” arguments, but this is completely ridiculous! I cannot believe how everyone is lashing out at someone who works very hard to help YOU find deals and gets nothing back from you in return.

      It disgusts me to see that nearly every comment on this post is lashing out at Miss Jenny and her site just because Borders wouldn't discount exactly what they wanted. Guess what, bright ones….99.99% of all coupons have fine print and exclusions. And you are going to blame YOUR mistake on Miss Jenny and Borders? I hope you all realize how selfish and petty you are. There is a LOT of work that goes into this site, and it costs you NOTHING, you are free to use as you wish. Miss Jenny does not deserve to be treated with such hatred and disrespect; she only tries to help you make your money go as far as possible…for free!  

      If you are going to do nothing but complain and behave like spoiled children, please go away. This site and the entire world would be a better place without you. Yes, that statement seems a bit extreme, but haven't you ever heard “Don't bite the hand that feeds you?”. No,  I do not know Miss Jenny personally, but it makes me angry to see you acting ugly when she was trying to help you.

      To Miss Jenny: Thank you so much for all the hard work you've put into this site. Please don't let people like these discourage you, because there are lot of us who sincerely appreciate all you and your helpers do! Keep 'em coming, chick! ;-)
