Great discount - makes it hard not to buy books
The best thing about the employee discount is that it is 40% off books.
Great discounts on books and coffee! Also there are sometimes free advanced readers copies for employees to take home.
Always a discount....bigger one. at Christmas
The benefits weren't good for the cafe but GREAT for books
Employee has no limit on the amount of items purchased
The best thing was the employee discount
Discount amounts have changed in recent years, when I worked there they ranged from 10%-50%, the majority of items being 30%. Now (2020) I am told that you get 40% off books and cafe, 30% off toys and games, and 20% off music and movies.
The discount at the store cafes makes for a quick inexpensive lunch or a very cheap, Starbucks quality coffee if you're nearby a store.
The employee discount was great and they even had times of the year where employees got even more off.
