Please review the information below and the Terms and Conditions for the reward benefits (such as bonus points and how points are earned), interest rates and account fees and terms for this particular offer before applying.

1 When you use your Barnes & Noble Mastercard to make any purchase online at bn.com and in any Barnes & Noble Store nationwide, a credit in the value of five percent (5%) of such eligible net purchases will be posted to your Barnes & Noble Mastercard account. The five percent (5%) credit will appear on the same billing statement as the charge for the related eligible purchase.

Individual merchants are responsible for designating their own merchant category codes.

After you accumulate 2,500 points, a twenty-five dollar ($25) Barnes & Noble Gift Card will be automatically sent to the mailing address on file within 7 to 14 business days after your billing statement period in which you have earned 2,500 points.

3 As the primary cardmember, you are eligible to earn 12 months of Barnes and Noble Membership in your name on each account anniversary, provided that $7,500 or more in eligible purchases are made with the Card during the credit card account year (each 365 day period prior to the account anniversary date). The following do not count towards the $7,500 purchase spend requirement: balance transfers, cash advances, quasi-cash transactions (transactions in highly liquid assets, e.g., assets that are directly convertible to cash such as, but not limited to, money orders, travelers checks, foreign currency and lottery tickets), purchases made by or for a business or for a business purpose, fees, interest charges, and unauthorized/fraudulent transactions.

  • If you already have a Barnes & Noble Membership at the time you earn this benefit, Barnes & Noble will add an additional 12 months to your existing membership, which will extend the date when your next Barnes & Noble Membership fee will be due. If you do not have an existing Barnes & Noble Membership at that time, you will receive an invitation from Barnes & Noble to create a membership account in order to receive the 12 months of Barnes & Noble Membership you earned.
