Only Barnes & Noble Gift Cards and eGift Cards can be redeemed at Barnes & Noble and BN.com.
We cannot honor Borders gift cards, and we regret any misunderstanding. Barnes & Noble did not take over Borders' stores or business. Following Borders' bankruptcy filing in 2011, Barnes & Noble did purchase Borders' customer listing and other intellectual property, which is the source of the confusion. However, Borders gift cards were not part of that transaction.
