Borders is running a geekalicious promotion on Star Wars items — 50% off Star Wars products. The promotion includes books, CDs, and DVDs. The promotion is good though Monday, July 26th at U.S. Borders, Borders Express, and Waldenbooks stores and at Borders.com. Geek dads and moms can take advantage of the promotion at a Borders store by printing out the no-limit 50% off Star Wars coupon. A coupon is not needed at Borders.com.
The Star Wars Catch
There’s a couple of catches to the 50% off Star Wars promotion. First, you have to be a member of Borders Rewards. Not a member? No worries, membership is free and it only takes about a minute to sign up online (a little longer at the store). Second catch: the coupon excludes LEGO products (Borders sells Star Wars Lego toys?), previous purchases (duh), special orders, shipping, magazines, comics, CDs in California stores (what the heck?), audio book downloads, music downloads, vinyl LPs, video games, eReaders, and certain eBooks.
Wow! Christmas arrived early for Star Wars fans in the USA. Not a Star Wars fan? That’s OK, Star Wars books and movies make excellent gifts for a geek dad, mom, child, or Wookiee.
