There is also an email contact form from the Barnes & Noble retail site located here: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/customerservice/contactus
We chose to contact Barnes & Noble via email to find out more about how long it takes for customer service to respond to emails from concerned customers. We’ll update you on the time it takes for customer service to respond.
The customer service phone line starts with an automated service. You have to choose between orders, support, education, membership and other options. When we pressed 0 we were unable to make it straight to customer service. We chose information on Nook and again pressed 0 to pass through the service. We were transferred to a customer service representative on this attempt to bypass customer service. When the representative answered the call at 1 minute 30 seconds into the call, she appeared to have no accent and quickly answered our question on the Nook Color.
When we sent an email to Barnes 7 Noble customer service, we initially received an automated response stating a customer service representative would respond within 24 hours. We did receive an actual response within the timeframe provided and the representative answered our question regarding the NOOK. THe email provided an ample amount of information as well as additional information to contact customer service, see below:
