If you’ve upgraded to the paid version of Borders’ rewards program, Borders Rewards Plus, you’re in luck: through Sunday, Rewards Plus members will earn an additional $5 in bonus Borders Bucks for every $50 in qualifying purchases (basically anything except GCs, gift wrap, and some eBooks). You can shop either online or in-store to receive the bonus, and the Bonus Bucks will be redeemable between 6/19 and 6/25.
I would suggest that you shop online so you can earn cashback: Ebates pays 6% cashback on Borders orders with a $5 signup bonus if you’re not already a member of Ebates, or MrRebates pays 5% with a $7.50 signup bonus.
This weekend’s Bonus Bucks promo is on top of Borders Rewards’ everyday benefits: $5 in Borders Bucks for your first $150 in purchases per year then $5 for each additional $100 — but Plus members get additional perks: free shipping with no minimum on all orders, 40% off hardcover bestsellers, and 10% off almost everything else.
If you’re not already a Borders Rewards Plus member, you can upgrade today for $20 and they’ll give you $10 in bonus Borders Bucks redeemable 7/14 thru 7/20. I’m pretty sure that you’ll earn cashback on the $20 Borders Rewards Plus membership fee in addition to your purchases.
AND if you shop today, you can use code BGL3679P (ending today) for 33% off one item!
