EXPIRED Anime & Manga Deals: Crunchtime Edition


It’s almost Christmas, which also means the end of the year is coming up. You need to buy gifts, the stores need to make their quarterly sales targets, so have some deals! One popular sale has made its return!


Get $5 off your $15+ physical book purchase with code GIFTBOOK at Amazon. Coupon does work on preorders. Limit one per account. Offer ends today unless it’s extended for like the fourth or fifth time.

Their Warehouse Deals subsidiary is also offering an additional 25% off video games. Discount is shown at checkout.

Free shipping with Prime or book orders $25+.

Barnes & Noble

It’s that time again! Barnes & Noble is having their Manga Mania sale. Buy two manga, get the third one free. Offer is available in-store and online.

Note that while Members get an additional 10% off at their local store, a lot of titles are available for less than list price online. The sale is calculating based on current price, so if your titles are over 10% off (or you are not a member), you are better off buying your books online. Preorders also are working.

In addition, get 20% off your $50+ purchase with code BNDEC50. This does stack with the B2G1F sale, but you won’t get 20% any preorders.

Shipping is free for Members or on a $25+ order.

    These sales are awesome. I enjoy shopping for anime and manga in the Christmas season. Too bad I think I over-spended my money. Lol

      Tell me about it. I’m too weak to resist the deals.

        Same here. I keep telling myself, “I am done”, but I get the urge to spend. 😀

    I remember the days when I lived for these kinda deals. Now adays I’m satisfied with the free anime you can find from the legit sites. Don’t collect physical media anymore.

    1. Krystallina

      I wish manga had more free simul-releases like anime. It’s the curse of preferring manga to anime.
