Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale
 
For those of you that never check the DVD Bargains forum (like me), it is unofficial yet but the semi-annual 50% off Criterion sale is supposed to start tomorrow 11/01.

Link to Barnes and Noble Coupon Thread on DVDtalk (super thanks to LASERMOVIES for coupons)

Really? It seems like the previous sale was just a couple of months ago.

Guess I'll have to check which Blu-rays were released since the last sale.

Can someone explain to me how this sale works? are all criterions just on sale? do I need a coupon? in store, right?

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.

right now they're doing 2 months of membership free trial so you can sign up for a month or so and use the $5 off coupons along with the 10% off members discount

I never understand why these coupons generally work, even after minor hassles with the employees. "Coupon may be used once... for each new, valid and current B&N membership purchased between..."

Every time I have had any difficult using the coupon, this is not a section we are discussing. Most of us did not purchase our memberships during that time period, so I suppose it is just fortunate that zero employees choose to enforce that part of the coupon? Maybe I am misreading something...

Of course, that's not what I'm going to be bringing up in store.

You never know. Last time, they shut down the online coupons during the sale. Who knows what corporate has put out to the stores this time around.

My strategy is to hit 'em fast, frequent, and early.

Nothing like dumping a bunch of Criterion standard DVDs on Amazon for more then you will be paying for the blu-rays tomorrow.

Yeah, I double-dip on Criterion titles I might normally pass on simply because Criterion's high resale value on Amazon allows me to upgrade for free or even at a profit.
