Master Card promo?

I tried to use the Master Card promotion (but a single issue mag or newspaper for nook and get a $5 gift card). I may be having a mental lapse of some sort, but I'm not sure how to claim it.

 

I bought a newspaper; my default payment method is a Master Card. But no gift card. And when I look at my account page, it seems to be because my card won't be charged until the newspaper ships, which it won't, because it downloaded. (Yes, I checked to make sure that I bought a single issue and not a trial subscription.)

 

How do I force the transaction to resolve so that I can get the gift card?

 

Any thoughts?

The fine print says that the gift cards will be sent on Jan 31st.

Ah. Well then, the problem is that I'm an idiot. :smileyhappy:

Thanks!

I wouldn't say that!  A LOT of people are asking the same question, on this board and on Facebook.  Maybe they need to make the fine print a bit larger so everyone can see it!

Still haven't received it. Maybe I'm not the problem after all. :smileysad:

I received mine exactly on 1/31. Did you check your spam folder? I've never had a problem with my gift cards arriving, but bn emails could easily go to a spam folder.

There is nothing caught by the spam filter that wasn't spam.

Me either.  Is there a place to contact them?

Call 1-800-843-2665, there should also be a number for technical support or for ordering, but I don't have it right now.  I'll see if I can find it and post it here for you.

Actually, I meant digital support, but I can't find the number, I'm sure it was posted here in the forum somewhere.  Did you have your mastercard set as your default credit card on file?  That's the only other thing I can think of right now as to why you wouldn't receive the gift card.  If you did, then call them and have them fix this for you.

I've tried e-mailing customer support, but there has been no reply. From what I've seen on these boards, that's the norm. B&N has no online support whatsoever. So I guess I'll open up the order and call the number and see what happens.

Re: Master Card promo?

I used the "Contact Customer Service" form on the BN website.

 

Today, I received a response telling me that the eGift card is "in process" and to watch my email for delivery.

Re: Master Card promo?

Good news: I got a response from Customer Service telling me they had forwarded my issue to Zinio who is fulfilling those orders.

 

After a week without a response I sent an e-mail to Zinio (as instructed to by CS). Today Zinio responded by sending me an e-mail form letter which tells me that they do not support nook or nookColor and that I need to contact B&N Customer Service.

 

Lot of work for a $5 promotion. And yet I will persevere...
