You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Price may be going up on Nook Color

Just FYI: Angulimala is one of our B&N resources not the Discussion Board Police.

Yesterday I opened my hotel room mini fridge and found a bottle of spring water for $3.50 This is the same brand that you can buy a case for $5.00 at the nearest grocery. I figure the price of bottled water should go substantially up based on this evidence.

The HSN price is now $329.90.

Will we see a price increase in the B&N stores?

If so, I'd say current owners got a good deal :smileytongue:


 

Snooki,

 

I'm sure you didn't mean any harm by this, and I took your point right away about us getting "a good deal".  But the fact is that this type of thing could potentially be detrimental to B&N.  I think that's what   Angulimala was trying to point out.  Titles like that one day can become headline fodder the next.  And negatively impact not only sales, but the way the product is perceived.  Working for B&N I'm sure he/she would not want to see that happen.

 

Also, it's important to make a clear distinction between B&N and HSN.  Just because HSN does one thing has no relationship in any way to B&N.  B&N introduced it at $249, which was a very attractive price, and extremely competitive for it's functionality.  They've always maintained it at that price point.  And they've never given any indication they had any intention of changing that, either up or down.

 

Lastly, the HSN price on the NookColor is not $329.90, and never has been.  That's because HSN doesn't even sell just a NookColor.  They only make it available in a bundle with other items.  In this case, a uSD card and 100 books.  And their price is actually $379.95, with the price you quoted being a temporary Sale Price.  If you pressed the point with them, they'd likely admit that they charge $249 for the NC as well, with the shifting prices being attributable to the SDcard & books.  Which they consider to be a $255 value, normally priced at $131, but currently on sale for $81 (and only $51 during their big event yesterday).

 

So there were some inaccuracies in what you posted.  I hope you can see that without getting upset with anyone who might bring it to your attention.

 

- Mark

Post evidence for your headline claim or, in the future, refrain from haphazard speculation that puts wrong ideas in people's heads.

 

I'm sorry Nook Color Discussion Police Person, in the future I'll refrain from haphazard speculation that puts wrong ideas in people's heads!  LOL and SMH!!


 

Good topic. Some people are sorta touchy. It keeps things interesting. :smileyvery-happy:

 

You still have to do the community service. :smileymad:

All one need do is READ the thread.     :smileytongue:

 

Plenty of posts discussing why the Title is incorrect.

 

JMHO
