Joe Wilcox over at Betanews has some concerns about this deal, heh:

Nothing surprising mind you, just the usual concerns of yet another company having your email address.

Yeah, I created a throwaway e-mail for the site. :Thmbsup:

I tried to use your referral link, but that didn't work- it only worked when I went to the non-referral link. :( sorry...

Has anyone received their card code by email yet? Or at least a confirmation email of their order? My daughter has received nothing, not even a "thank you for your order" message.

I went to the site, and it shows that the order is pending.  It did say that the codes would take two days to process when ordering, so I wasn't really expecting anything until tomorrow.

I received a few e-mails many hours after the fact informing me of people using my referral link. But it was several hours after the fact.

OK, I told my daughter not to panic till she gets home from her boyfriend's house...in a few days.

She is used to at least getting a confirmation email to inform her the order went through successfully. She was beginning to wonder if something was wrong, thinking maybe she misspelled her email address and someone else might be ending up with a gift card at her expense.

Did she try to go to the site to check?  That would be the most straightforward way of finding out... they keep track of your purchases.

I don't know and I am going to have to wait a few days to find anything out. She is away in no-pc land.

I received an e-mail a few minutes ago telling me that my gift card was ready to be redeemed. And I just successfully redeemed it to my Amazon.com account. :Thmbsup:

I don't know if you should expect this trend, but my gift card was ready to be redeemed approximately 23 hours after I received my "confirmation" e-mail that I had ordered the gift card.

Also, thanks to everyone who used my referral link. I got the gift card for free! :Thmbsup:

I just used your referral link but I'm not sure I got the Amazon deal. It mentioned something about Amazon not being liable.....yada, yada, at the bottom but after submitting a throwaway address it showed me a restaurant free appetizer deal. Guess I'll find out soon enough!

Thanks for the heads-up and the referral link!

Looks like their site is experiencing troubles, too. I guess those 1.3 million people are all logging in about now claiming their gift cards. :D

I sure hope you got it, but I think the offer ended already. :-/

Hi folks,

I found another similar offer from another similar site called Groupon. This time it's a $20 Barnes & Noble gift card for $10. This time the offer is good for another 2.5 days. If my math is correct, that means the deal expires on Tuesday, Feb 8th at 12:01 AM GMT -700. I can't tell, but it might even be valid outside the U.S.A.

Referral link here: $20 B&N Gift Card for $10.

Non-referral link here: $20 B&N Gift Card for $10.

The Fine Print

Expires Apr 10, 2011
Limit 1/person. Limit 1/trans. Valid in-store or online. Valid on sale items. Groupon value reduces by $10 on 4/11, except where prohibited. Groupon issued by Barnes & Noble Marketing Services LLC. See full terms.

I already used my gift-card (I ordered it yesterday, it was made available to me today) and I was happy to see that it was also valid on the Barnes & Noble marketplace (3rd party vendors).

^ Did you get an e-mail immediately?  I purchased, and thought I was creating an account at the same time, but when I went to look for the purchase, the account wasn't there, and I received no notification.

No. I didn't get a confirmation e-mail until about 12 hours later (the next day) when it told me it was ready to be redeemed. You'll probably see the charge pending on your card, if you can view your transactions online.

^ That's the strange thing... it's the first thing I tried, and it's not there.  I might try again... if they process it, it will just be more that I get :)  It will be helpful to get my daughter's nook
