    Default Barnes and Noble Gold Discount

    Is the Barnes and Noble Gold Discount always 25%? It says the offer is until july 1st but is there going to be a new 25% coupon next week or something?

    Any idea how often that discount updates? I'm trying to decide when to pull the trigger.

    That discount is always around. Just keep an open eye on it when it comes up.

    You can combine the Barnes and Noble discount if you haggle over the phone. I was able to use BN, the 10% email discount, and some small talk to get 24% off of my W520 brand-new.

    What's the email discount? Is that the one where you sign up to let them send you offers and such? It wouldn't let me combine that and the BN one, it says in the fine print too. Maybe it was different back then though.

    No, it was the same back then too. "Use this 10% email promotion on your *next* Lenovo purchase." Even though you can't really combine them, if you haggle enough over the phone you'll be able to.

    The key is to eat the sales agent's time, I suppose. Took 90 minutes total to order my laptop, and I only paid $1665 for a $2167 system.

    Interesting... Never really haggled before. What in the world do you talk about for 90 minutes? Is it really just convincing them to lower the price the whole time, talking like you could go with another brand, etc?

    Basically started off telling him my situation (rising engineering student, needed a powerful laptop). Pointed him to the configuration I had online and I low-balled for $1400 (was hoping for $1600-1700 realistically). Followed the tips from DR650SE's haggling guide (in my sig) and the agent would sometimes go back and forward with "his managers". When they were thinking, I'd small talk with him, talking about whatever (started off with the NC tornadoes from last year, relevant since the call center is in Raleigh). Tried getting a free dock as well, though it wasn't working, so I "settled" for the $1665.

    I think it just got re-applied. I got approximately 45% off the W530 ($747) using B&N Gold + the Current Discount + a 15% off email I had languishing in my inbox. The rep told me to get it last week for $330 more, so I'm glad I waited.
