The best way to win at Barnes is to buy the book for cheap, Barnes & Nobel sales associate Jennifer Naughton told CNN.
The best way for you to beat Barnes & Nobles competition is to purchase the book at a low price.
Naughon said the store has had sales of around $5,000 per copy.
“You don’t need to be a fan of the company to get into the business, just a loyal customer who wants to do business with the company,” Naughson said.
“But you don’t want to spend $5K on a book if you don,t think it’s worth the effort.”
The best price on a Barnes &Noble book is $4.99 for a hardcover book and $2.99 per copy in the Kindle e-reader edition, according to Naughsons Amazon store.
But that’s not to say you can’t beat the competition.
Amazon said in an e-mail to CNN that it does not track sales of Barnes &Novell titles, but said its sales data “can provide valuable insight to the company.”
Barnes &Nobles books have been a source of contention with Amazon, which has accused Barnes & Co. of taking too much of the publishing industry’s profits.
Amazon has also accused Barnes of taking away profits from other publishers, like Penguin Random House, which makes books for children and adults.
Barnes says it doesn’t make money off the books it sells, but it does get a commission from them, and it does keep a cut of any royalties it earns from its sales.
The company said it is working to stop Amazon from selling books at the same price as books it buys from Barnes &nobles.
