They’ll get the books here a week earlier than Amazon, and with free shipping. Go figure. I think Amazon’s shipping calculator is broken.
Anyway, here’s the math quiz – the email I got from B&N ended with this:
YOU SAVED: $3.40 Barnes & Noble Membership
$58.01 Total Order Price
$58.02 Credit Card
So why does my total not equal the total? Does B&N tack a penny onto every credit card transaction? If so, Why? It seems it would be easier to hide that penny in the price of the book than have a completely separate line on an invoice for it.
