    The books were already too expensive in the first place so a 10-15% discount did not matter that much. I could easily buy the same book at a used bookstore for way less.

    Would be a 5 but they reduced the employee discount in the cafe.

    Discount was minimal on merchandise and only 50% in Cafe.

    The employee discount makes it so that if you are an avid reader and don't like waiting for books bought online, you have a decent alternative.

    It was great. We got everything 50 percent off! What a deal! I loved getting all of the books and drinks from the Starbucks half off.

    Stores with a Barnes & Noble Cafe within them also allow the employee discount, it used to be 50% but they reduced it to 30%.

    The employee discount is 30% both in cafe and store. The cafe used to be 50% but went down to 30%

    Ok, but just enough to say they have one.

    The employee discount is only 30% off books. However, everything in the Barnes and Noble Cafe for employees is 50% off.

    I do not recall the exact percentage, but it only took off a dollar or two. It's nothing to be excited about.
