As a Premium or Rewards Member, you earn a stamp for every $10 spent on eligible items in a single transaction, both on bn.com and in Barnes & Noble and Paper Source stores. Orders on papersource.com do not currently earn stamps. We are working on making this possible and expect this functionality to be available in the future.
Note: There is no carryover between transactions. For example, a $13 purchase only earns one stamp. The additional $3 is not applied to your next purchase. Making two $15 purchases will earn two stamps. The $5 from each transaction do not combine to a third stamp.
Stamps are earned and rewards can be redeemed on purchases of the following items on bn.com, on the Barnes & Noble App, and in Barnes & Noble and Paper Source stores:
- Café items
- NOTE: At this time, Café purchases in the Barnes & Noble App will earn stamps, but you cannot use Rewards to pay for a Café purchase. Rewards can be redeemed at a register in the Café.
- Gift items
- NOOK devices
- Toys & Games
For store purchases, stamps earned will appear on your account within 24-48 hours.
For orders placed on bn.com, stamps are not issued to your account until the items in the order are shipped. If there are multiple shipments, this could result in you receiving stamps on different days.
For example: if you place an order for $40, you will receive 4 stamps once all items are shipped. If on one day, $30 worth of items ship, you will receive 3 stamps. Once the other $10 item ships, you will receive the 4th stamp, as your total shipped value has reached $40.
The following items are not eligible for earning stamps:
- Premium Membership fees (new or renewal)
- Physical and electronic Gift Cards
- eBooks and other digital content, such as Digital Newsstand and Digital Audiobooks
- Hardware and electronics (other than NOOK devices)
- Barnes & Noble Kitchen items
- BN Marketplace purchases
- Taxes and gift-wrapping, shipping, and other fees
If you placed a pre-order before 2/14/2023, and have signed up for either Premium or Rewards Membership before that pre-order ships, you will earn stamps for eligible items in that pre-order once they ship, as long as your Membership is still active. Stamps will be added to your account by the end of the next day after the item ships. Pre-orders placed after 2/14/2023 will only earn stamps if you were enrolled in Premium or Rewards Membership at the time you placed the pre-order.
