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)

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale

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.

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

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.

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.
