For savings opportunities every time you shop, you might want to join the B&N Membership program.

Barnes & Noble also has bookstores on college campuses. Membership discounts cannot be applied at Barnes & Noble College locations, as they operate separately. We confirmed this by calling campus stores in Michigan, Texas, and West Virginia.
