My B&N member card is a bargain – at $25/year it buys me 20% off hardcover books in the store, 10% off softcover books and magazines, and 5% online. That has saved me a bundle through the past 10 years, though I wonder whether there shouldn’t be a deeper loyalty or volume discount. Shouldn’t someone who’s bought a significant number of books, and/or has been a member for 10 years, be accorded more of a discount than someone using their card infrequently?
