Show B&N an eReader and Get 30 Free Books with a Nook


Nook Upgrade

Barnes and Noble rolled out a new marketing campaign that started yesterday. If you take an ereader into a Barnes and Noble retail store and show it to the clerk, you can get a free 2GB microSD card with 30 free ebooks on it with the purchase of a Nook Touch, Nook Color, or Nook 1st Edition.

You don’t actually have to give the ereader away, just show it to the staff. Barnes and Noble are confident customers will want to upgrade to the new Nook when comparing it side-by-side with another brand.

According to the fine print, this is a limited time offer and B&N’s definition of an eReader does not include mobile phones, laptops, or general purpose tablet computers.

Here’s the list of free ebooks, a $315 value according to Barnes and Noble.

  1. A novel promotion I would say. No pun intended.

    P.S.
    My enthusiasm for the way Sony Ereaders handle multi-level TOC has diminished. If you have a TOC structured Part I, Chapter 1,subchapter1, then you can only jump directly to subchapter 1. You then have to page backwards to get to the point where either Part I or Chapter 1 exist.

  2. Awesome! I placed an online order earlier but I’d rather see it in person first anyway so I just cancelled. I’ll take a Kindle 3 in and compare them since I don’t care much for the Kindle’s keyboard. Getting a free microSD doesn’t hurt, especially since I can get free books. Thanks for the heads up!
