I am not a B&N member but I have looked at the Terms and Conditions of the membership agreement and it states:
The Everyday Member Discount is only valid on eligible purchases at any Barnes & Noble Store. The Everyday Member Discount is not available on purchases of the following: products or services at www.bn.com, at retail stores owned or operated by or websites affiliated with Barnes & Noble College Bookstores, Gift Cards; Online Gift Certificates; digital content (including but not limited to digital books, magazines, and periodicals); nookâ„¢ and related accessories;
So the answer would appear to be no discount on eBooks. Which isn't shocking since the publishers don't let them give promotional discounts on eBooks either.

Can someone explain to me if when buying ebooks, does our annual membership discount applies just like when buying books at he store?
You can't. The membership discount is not applicable to eBooks and Nook products, it's in the TOS and has widely been discussed here.
Some of it is due to publishers setting the price for the books and not allowing any discounts, which is why so many eBooks are the same price everywhere now.
Some of it is B&N policy, I have no idea why. Although for eBooks it could partially be confusion and anger that result when the discount is applied to one eBook but not another. But B&N has never applied the membership discount to eBooks and Nook products, from the beginning. Which is unfortunate and annoying to those of us who have had memberships for years.

Currently, the only thing your membership will get you as far as ebooks and nook products/accessories go, is faster shipping for accessories or additional nooks.
