|I think I was a member in 1987 if that helps any... (Prolly not.)|
|We're members. We are big on buying DVDs, and all of our (20) nieces and nephews get books for Christmas and birthdays. Because of that, the savings more than pays for the membership fee.|
I would only get it if you are already pretty regular customers, though. I realized a number of years ago that getting a paid membership because "it'll be incentive to use it" never works for me.
Hope this helps your decision!
|I have personally found items are more expensive in the stores than online. BUT, when I ordered from their website, their shipping is very misleading. If it is free shipping, the number of shipments they send the items in, they charge shipping and of course tax. I would not get their card. I can order all the same items from Amazon cheaper, faster, no tax and free shipping. Just sayin...........|
|Often their prices are higher than those online. As a school librarian I have a teacher discount card for free and I never really use it.|
What I'm willing to pay for is Amazon Prime. That comes with 1 free ebook a month on the Kindle, free movie streaming, and free 2 day shipping. There might be more benefits but I don't use anything else. I use the shipping and books the more.
|I wouldn't do the B&N card unless you're really a frequent buyer. |
I too do everything through Amazon, even without Amazon Prime it's pretty great, especially since I don't mind waiting a week for my stuff if I'm getting free shipping. I have the kindle app for my phone too, and I do all my reading through that. Kindle book prices are pretty good.
|Just a little bit of info I heard last week about Barnes and Noble. They were heading towards bankruptsy until 50 Shades of Grey was released. It took them forward in to the black and they made profitl I wonder how many bookstores Harry Potter saved?|
|Then maybe I should rethink getting a Nook in the fall! I'm getting a small bonus in September and have wanted an e-reader for quite some time....|

I've worked with both the Kindle and the Nook and I can say I really prefer the Kindle. So far the only benefit I see to the Nook the ability to read the ebook collection when connected to their wi-fi in their stores. My fear is their brick and mortar stores will begin closing slowly as the bankruptcy rumor is true.
The kindle is larger and Amazon help support, although a phone call away not in person, is amazing.
|I love the kindle. Jacob's mom has a kindle fire, she adores it, uses it all the time. I don't have an actual kindle, but I do have the kindle app for my phone and I read on it pretty often.|
|Once you have Amazon Prime, your life will never be the same either, lol. I love that I can buy anything for any price and I have it in 2 days. I am the queen of buying something and an hour later, remember that I needed one more thing for like $1. With prime, no problem. Shipping's free! I've way gotten my money's worth out of it just for that. All the free tv shows, movies and other video makes it an even better deal.|
|The thing is that I buy books maybe once or twice a year and don't buy DVDs. I've decided ix-nay on the card, but now am torn between the Nook and the Kindle. I've heard that B&N is headed towards bankruptcy but the Nook will still be around but under another company. I have no interest in streaming media on the reader so am leaning towards the Nook.|
|I was torn betwen the Nook and the Kindle too. I actually went to my library and |
rented" a Nook so I could read on it and see if I liked it. I did and ended up getting the Nook Tablet. But if you are only going to read books on it, get the original Nook - I think they're down to less than 80 bucks.
I am a big fan of Amazon but I liked the idea of being able to go into a store if I had a problem or had to return it. In your search for the perfect e reader you'll get half the people who like the Nook and half who like the Kindle! If you're not interested in surfing the web or going on line other than to purchase books, the Nook is a nice reader - and super thin to slip in your pocket.
