My son started college this past week. It’s been rough. It’s so expensive with getting him books, a laptop, paying his tuition and everything that goes with college. Thank goodness Barnes and Noble is trying to make it a little easier on us parents. Barnes & Noble MasterCard is the best credit card for parents and college students purchasing textbooks, books, and supplies during the back-to-school season and beyond. Many colleges have a Barnes and Noble as their bookstore on campus.
When you use your Barclay Barnes and Noble card you earn 5% back on school supplies and texbooks from Barnes and Noble or BN.com. Earning 5% at back-to-school time can really add up. Average cost for books and supplies last year was $1,225 at public colleges and $1,244 at private colleges. Using the Barnes & Noble MasterCard for those purchases at campus Barnes & Noble bookstores or at BN.com could give you an immediate $60 savings. And you receive a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card after your first purchase with the card. Then you receive an additional $25 Barnes & Noble gift card every time you reach 2,500 points. Earn 1 reward point for every $1 spent on all other purchases (excluding Barnes and & Noble purchases), even for everyday purchases like gas and groceries. There is no annual fee and you’ll receive a complimentary FICO® Credit Score.
Use your Barnes & Noble MasterCard to purchase any of the following:
NOOK & NOOK Books
Toys & Games
Home & Gifts
Movies & TV
Newspapers & Magazines
IF you’re a homeschooling mom they have tons of curriculum for you. My son is in 7th grade and my daughter is in 4th and I saw a lot of books that would be excellent to homeschool with.
IF you teach children in anyway they’ve got great curriculum there for you to use. It can save you a bundle. They have great science kits and so much more.
You can get so much more at Barnes and Noble like a yummy snack. They’re turkey panini’s were really good. But I only had a bite of the cupcake. My eyes were bigger than my stomach. Everything was yummy!
There’s so many items you can get at Barnes and Noble that you may not think about. You can get books, dvd’s, games, snacks, Bibles, self help and so much more. It really is a great store to get your student’s textbooks and school supplies at. I may or may not have picked me up a lovely story about Mr. Darcy while I was there! What would you do with your savings when using your Barnes and Noble card?
