With both Premium and Rewards Membership, you earn stamps for every purchase of eligible items in $10 increments within a single transaction, in Barnes & Noble and Paper Source stores, and online at bn.com.
The timing for receiving your stamps depends on where you make your purchase.
Receiving Stamps from Store Purchases
Stamps earned in purchases made in a Barnes & Noble or Paper Source store with a Premium or Rewards Membership will appear on your account in 24-48 hours.
Receiving Stamps from BN.com Purchases
Stamps are issued for online orders after each eligible increment of $10 has shipped. Bn.com purchases include purchases made using Buy Online, Pick Up in Store. For these orders, “shipped” would refer to when the items are picked up from the store.
*Membership cannot currently be used on papersource.com. We are working on making this possible and expect this functionality to be available in the future.
For example, in a $40 order:
- One stamp is issued when the $10 item ships (Shipped Total: $10)
- No stamp is issued when the $9 item ships (Shipped Total: $19)
- Two stamps are issued when the $11 item ships (Shipped Total: $30)
- One stamp is issued when the final $10 item ships (Shipped Total: $40)
If you placed a Pre-Order before 2/14/2023, and enroll in either Premium or Rewards Membership with the account used for the pre-order before it ships, you will earn stamps if it is eligible.
