B&N sent me a 50% off any one item coupon via email...

It was sent to a B&N account that I've only used once ages ago and the code seems tied to the account as I tried it with another account I have and it said invalid coupon.

What would you guys order? Their big ticket items are pretty limited and some, like the 5893 Creator Pick-up are excluded from coupons. I'm leaning towards the police station to go along with the fire station I just got, but a second Hogwarts Express is mighty tempting for a second carriage to keep and minifigs to part out...


Edit: nevermind on the Hogwarts Express... Looks like it's excluded too!

    All the Lego sets (except maybe Architecture) will likely be excluded. Can you take it in store? Any time I've had a B&N coupon I've taken it to the B&M store and had it honored on LEGO no problem.

    Seems to be online>only. Here's the fine print:
    To qualify for offer: (i) you must have received an email communicating the offer directly from Barnes & Noble, and (ii) you must also make your purchase online at BN.COM using the email address to which the offer was sent. Orders made from other email addresses will not qualify for this offer.
    This coupon can only be redeemed by email recipient and is only valid once per customer, per billing address, on a first-time online purchase at BN.COM.
    This coupon expires 7 days after the email offer's Sent Date, inclusive of the email offer's Sent Date, at 2:59 a.m. Eastern Time. Please refer to your email communication for exact offer expiration date.
    The 50% discount will be applied to the most expensive eligible item in the order - not the entire purchase - and will be deducted after all other eligible discounts are applied.
    Additional Rules Governing Use of this Coupon: This coupon is (i) not redeemable for cash or cash equivalents (including Gift Cards and online Gift Certificates); (ii) not valid on past purchases; (iii) not eligible for purchases of the following products and services: Barnes & Noble Memberships, Gift Cards, Gift Certificates, gift-wrapping, textbooks, video games, digital content (including but not limited to digital books, magazines, and periodicals), NOOK(TM) and related accessories, other hardware and electronics, software, products available for pre-order, products from the Rosetta Stone Series, products available for in-store ship-to-home orders, shipping or handling expenses, or products marked as not eligible for "coupons or promotional discounts," (iv) not valid on purchases made from third parties accessible from the website (e.g., used books, PC and video games, etc.); (v) may not be combined with any other coupon; and (vi) may not be combined with the Educator program discount. This coupon is not valid at Barnes & Noble retail stores or Barnes & Noble College Bookstores. Void where prohibited by law.
    So there are a few Lego sets that don't say "excludes coupons"... Guess I'm limited to those.

    50?! You must be a "valued customer." My coupon was 15%. :(

    However, mine was definitely valid for LEGO as I entered an item and got it into the last stages of checkout.
