You can utilize your coupons on any other day. Because the company was generous to give their MCC members an extra 10% off their purchase, coupons wouldn't have been in effect anyway because of that sale.

The other cool thing about the 20% off sale is that, because you said you spent over $100 in-store, you got back 10 dollars in gift vouchers to use on a future purchase.

That is actually quite generous all-things-considered. Regardless, saving 25% off a $100, on top of an additional 20% because of their sale day, is a bit too expectant considering their generosity already.

Do not allow yourself to be pressure sold into Books a Million's Millionaire's Club card as it is a big rip-off! I am sure the sales people get some type of commission for selling these and they are worthless. Our local store never has the books we are looking for and...

Actually you are very wrong. Have had the card for years.

You get $100 in coupons that don't expire and are reusable along with your 10%. If you spend $25 or more you will take an additional $5 saving you at least $7.50 between your 10% off and your coupon. When you spend $50 or more you'll take another $10 off saving you $15 between your savings and your coupon. That there is already $22.50 in savings on only 2 purchases.

There are 20% sales throughout the year so that will save you a lot. Oh yeah, most of your coupons are good online, along with the warehouse pricing, and they do 20% off online sales too. And you get a $5 or $10 gift card for joining. IT IS A STEAL!

Do not let anyone tell you otherwise. You really only have to go into the store 2 or 3 times a year or even only shop online twice a year to make the card worth it,

Why sell a book you do not have ? The book I order was out of print !!! Why not be up front and say so and that you needed to order it?? How do you back order a book that is out of print in a week ?? . This is a bad business practice. Done by vendors like you. I am posting this so others do not waste their time with you. "Back ordered items are still pending in our system. We will fulfill your order as quickly as possible, typically within five business days. In rare cases this could take two to four weeks, and shipment at this time is not guaranteed. " This is a standard line and appears that you list books you DO NOT HAVE IN STOCK TO GET THE BUSINESS. Shame on you for being deceptive. Again, how do you back order books that others such as Amazon and BN cannot ??

My daughter has spent the last hour trying to cancel a magazine subscription that she never signed up for. Apparently BAM has a SCAM that focuses on their own customers. Stay away from this place.

Books A Million - Subscription Review from Gas City, Indiana

Be very careful when you make a purchase at this store with your debit card. They are very tricky about signing you up for magazines without you knowing it. Cancelling is not so easy either. They cancel but keep sending you magazines at a different price. And the "survey" that they ask you to do is not a survey. Whatever magazines you mark you are ordering without your knowledge. Shame on you Books A Million!!!!

Books A Million - Subscription Review from Columbia, Tennessee

Associate explained trial subscription as free for 3 months and then you will receive an invoice that you can pay to continue.Wrong!! They charge the card you paid for your BAM order. I don't appreciate my bank card info being sent to a third party company that I didn't authorize. I went to BAM even though Amazon is cheaper. I wanted to support my local business. No more! Amazon will get all of my book business from now on!

I too was told there would be a three month subscription. At my hesitation, the staff assured me that I would recieve a large unsubscribe mailer that I "couldn't miss" Well, I check the mail daily and saw no "obvious" cancellation flier. I too have been charged for mags that I would've otherwise cancelled. Shame!
