In case you haven’t heard, B&N has announced they plan to fully stop supporting some of their early Nook models starting in April of 2024.
If you own one of these older Nooks B&N will give you a $50 off coupon for a new Nook Glowlight 4e if you submit a form with your old Nook’s serial number.
The devices that are going to be affected by the discontinuation of service include the Nook Simple Touch from 2011, the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight from 2012, and the Nook Glowlight from 2013.
By June 2024, the devices listed above will no longer support purchasing content from B&N, and customers will no longer be able to register them or sign into a Nook account.
The devices can still be used to read content that was downloaded before the shutdown date, and they will remain signed in to the user account that was setup before the shutdown, but they will no longer support purchasing or downloading new content, and if you do a factory reset you’ll lose everything on the device and you won’t be able to sign in or register it to a B&N account.
There probably aren’t a lot of people still using Nooks from the 2011-2013 era, but for anyone that still has one of those Nooks you can apply to get $50 off a new Nook Glowlight 4e.
Saying you can get $50 off is a bit disingenuous on B&N’s part considering the Nook Glowlight 4e is always “on sale” for $20 off anyway, so it’s really only $30 off, but being able to get a brand new Nook for $69 is still a pretty good deal (they specifically say $50 off the list price). The coupon is valid until the end of August 2024.
