Re: Promotion Code Request Thread

I would really like a promo code.  I live 50 minutes from my closest B&N.  This book sounds amazing.

Hey guys,

 

I just bought my nook yesterday, and so far I'm lovin' it! But I see I missed the offer for No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. I loved the HBO series, so I'm a bit disappointed I arrived on the scene so late.

By any chance, does anyone have a spare code? It would be much appreciated!

 

hi there - just PM'd you!

Re: Promotion Code Request Thread

Hey All~ I just bought my nook this weekend, & the code they gave me was for the Lee Child book.  Well, I've already devoured that & returned asking for the older codes, but they do not have anymore.  If anyone has and extra week 1 or week 2 I'd LOVE it!  

 

Thank you for your consideration, I'm looking forward to learning more about my Nook all the time!

Hey everyone,

I have the code for Storm Front, but no others. I'm trying to 'stock up' as my son will be in the hospital for testing in July and we'll be staring at the walls alot!

Thanks so much!

LizzyLoot is the only person that received a code that posted after you did, there are still MANY that haven't received one that posted before you did.

Keep in mind, there is no specified order to giving the things out, that's why I recommend in the first post to state something about why you need the code.
Some people might give them out to people that need them due to medical hardship, others to people they know contribute to the boards on a regular basis.

For those trying to do this in chronological order, this http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/NOOK-General-Discussion/Promotion-Code-Request-Thread/m-p/537... is the next one in line, so to speak.

I really want to commend all those that have contributed togetting these codes out to others.   OTOH I have to say I'm disappointed in those whose only contributions (now 3 weeks into this) is the sum total of 3 posts and each of those was asking for the freebie.

Re: Promotion Code Request Thread

I just got my nook a few days ago, and obviously can't locate any old codes.

 

Can someone PM me a code (along with brief instructions on how to use it) for The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency?

 

Much appreciated!!!

wow! sorry to offend- if you're keeping track there are actually 2 people who got them after me, and from their posts- their reason for needing was the same as mine- just got their nooks. I agree- give them to people with more valid reasons if they had a medical reason or live far away, etc, I'm fine with that- and people you know that contribute more frequently, but neither of these was that type of case. Again, sorry I offended you FrogAlum.

@chefclaire

 

I didn't say I found your post offensive, neither do I think my post was.  I was just pointing out the facts and possibly a few tips and/or explanations for why things happen as they do.  Yes, I did point out the fact there are many "in line" before you, those are just the facts and I included the link to help anyone that still has a code to give out and wants to go "in order."

 

There are so many people asking for other weeks codes and other things that this thread is a mess.  Just trying to straighten it up a little.

Re: Promotion Code Request Thread

Hi all!!

 

I would really appreciate someone getting a week 3 promo code for me.  I live 75 miles from the nearest B&N and would really like to snag this one!

 

I'm hoping to make it into the city next week so I would be able to "pay it forward" by picking up an extra week 4 code.

 

Thanks so much for the help!

Re: Promotion Code Request Thread

I just got an iPad and found out about the promotion this week. Got this week's code for free book, but would love the 1st week's book, too. I already asked at my local store and they don't have anymore.

You have a PM. Please post or PM me if you received this and used it; if not, there are many more waiting.

 

Ladies and gentlemen: This was my last code for week 1; I'd been saving it for a friend who I'd heard was getting a NOOK, but she decided she didn't want this book. Somehow DalmatiaRN got bypassed back on page 8 of this thread, so I sent it to them.

 

At this point there are, by my count, 21 people still looking for week 1 codes, going back to page 9 of this thread. I show Melmoga as having waited the longest.

 

And at this point, there probably aren't anywhere close to 21 codes left over. If you really want to read this e-book, I suggest that instead of waiting in the hope against hope that you'll be able to get this e-book for free, just pay the $1.99 to buy it at Fictionwise (or the like).

Re: Promotion Code Request Thread

Hi everyone. I sent out a plea for week #1 promotion code but have not received any response. I know there is quite a few of us out here who have arequest. I live 60 miles from the nearest B & N and am retired with a limited budget. If there is a code out there I would really appreciate using it. Thanks in advance.
