Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale

I tried coupons on DVDs and BDs and they don't seem to be working...guess we'll see what happens in-store.

EDIT: Library link is working and will get you 10% off your entire order.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale

Are there any active in-store member coupons right now? Or is the Library link the best I'm going to do (which would make the in-store price with the member discount even with the online price, negating the purpose of driving out to the store). But after all the hullabaloo about how much people save with a membership during this sale, paying $17.99 + tax for upper-tiers seems kind of high to me. Am I missing something?

Can't use coupons online for this sale. Best bet is either the Library or AAA links to save 10% off your order. If you don't have a membership make sure your order is over $25 to avoid a shipping charge. Shouldn't be too hard if you order at least a couple of Criterions.

Have you considered looking for in-store B&N coupons in the B&N Coupon thread? Seems the logical place...

Membership is $25 for the year. However, you can buy the membership, use it for the sale and then cancel the membership for a refund within 30 days.
Incorrect, 30 days my ass, it's 14 days now to return anything, I didn't make it within 14 days and I got screwed over. How awesome is that? =| and these pos barely give you a good deal with their shitty membership.

I did and couldn't find any. Figured I'd ask politely, expecting a polite response, but...

They are in the first post of that thread. Same place they've been for years thanks to Lasermovies.

Click the spoiler tags that are below some of the online codes in the coupon thread and you should see the store coupons available along with a direct link to them at the B&N web site.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale

I'm in for The Thin Red Line this week and Antichrist next week. I might pick up a couple more if I don't have any problems using the $5 coupons. This will be my first time buying with a membership during the sale, so I have no idea how my store is about coupons.

I must have missed the polite part.

"But after all the hullabaloo about how much people save with a membership during this sale, paying $17.99 + tax for upper-tiers seems kind of high to me."

If 17.99 for the best version of some of the best films ever made is too high for you then maybe you aren't a Criterion person.
I never thought I'd hear someone complain about paying $18 for a Criterion Blu-ray. Then again, there are people in these forums happy when trash like The Human Centipede drops to $15. I wouldn't take that if they gave me $15 to take it. Compared to that, getting these Criterions at $18 (or less) is nearly criminal.

Pretty awesome, I'd say. Someone has to pay for the great deals the rest of us got .

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale

Placed an order. It may be my only one. There's certainly more I want, but I'm not sure I can afford it, and I still have plenty to watch from the last sale.

I ordered:
The First Films of Akira Kurosawa (Eclipse DVD Set)
Mystery Train
The Darjeeling Limited
Seven Samurai
The Magician

And I ordered a Criterion DVD for a family member as a Christmas gift.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale

It seems like I cannot get the library link and the free two month trial membership to work at the same time it keeps giving me errors. Is it not possible to use both of these? I guess you would have to activate the free trial before you get the benefits from it like the expedited shipping and the discount.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale

I'm bummed Broadcast News isn't part of the sale. Release date too far off, I'm guessing.
