Making the Most of a Borders Coupon

Stopped by Borders this afternoon to see where I could blow my 30%-off coupon. The new Writer's Market guides were in -- yay! Among the multitudinous choices -- Poet's Market, Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market, Novel & Short Story Writer's Market, Writer's Market for the Chicken Soup Lover's Soul -- was a Deluxe Edition. $50, but it included a year's membership to WritersMarket.com.

The Standard Edition is priced at $30, and a year's membership to WM.com also runs $30; so you're saving $10 right off the bat.

Subtract 30% and you're at $35 for the set. Not too shabby. Either you're paying full price for the book and $5 for the online membership, or full price for the online deal and $5 for the book, or $17.50 for each, or ... you get the idea.

Of course, then you get home and find out Amazon has it for $33 (incl. free shipping).

Still, it was nice to spend a late lunch at Carl's Jr. browsing the pages. And I've got a head start on the rest of you while you wait an additional 3-5 days for the book to ship (not to mention the actual transit time).

Then again, two bucks is two bucks. <sigh>
