A couple Criterions: Barnes and Noble B2G1 sale ($54 or so, shipped)

Barnes and Noble has a B2G1 sale going on, where some pre-order Criterions are included. (BN pre-order price is cheaper than their in stock price).

Preorders:

Naked Kiss
Shock Corridor
Army of Shadows
Robinson Crusoe on Mars
Broadcast News

(Several other non-preorders -- thus, higher prices -- are also included: Pierrot, Cronos, Videodrome, etc.)

I picked up the first three (which all have a preorder price of $26.59) for $54.72 shipped, including tax, but not including cashback.

At about $18 per, that rivals the semi-annual BN Criterion sales (with membership, without coupons).

As the closest BN Criterion sale (based on past experience) is at least six months away, and there are many indicators that coupons paired with the Criterion sales are being phased out (see the BN coupon thread), these seemed like pretty nice prices.

Robinson Crusoe is a bit more - $28.49 - so I paid $58.52 with tax for it and the two Fullers, before cashback. Still a good deal, and three less Crits to worry about during the July sale.

I sure wish Feb titles would be included: getting Double Vie, Amarcord, and Sweet Smell of Success for around the same price would be pretty great.

Re: A couple Criterions: Barnes and Noble B2G1 sale ($54 or so, shipped)

great deal, I just cant bring myself to order from B&N after the cancelations of my prior orders in the last few months. even though I ultimately did end up recieve my austin powers collection and 2copies of spiderman trilogy that ended up not even getting charged to my card(even though i only orderd one) since they canceled the order i had.

Then when i contacted them to see about returning the second one to them they said they couldnt accept it cause they didnt even show shipping me one copy let alone two.

even though that worked out in my favor, I just cant trust that company to not screw up again on another order.

Personally, I use these sales to get decent prices on titles that never drop it price... Criterion discs are no longer in this group. I can wait for the 50% off sales for those.

I would be interested in the titles you order. I have one or 2 things I would get if I could find others.

^ two other things I'm looking at that never seem to go down:
Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense blu-ray
David Gilmour: Remember That Night blu-ray

I'd also be interested in other deals that people are finding.

It isn't much,but both of this week's Criterion's went up by about $1.50 each as it's now Tuesday in some areas of the country. Sucks for me, but it minor. Still think I'll probably go for Shock Corridor, The Naked Kiss and Army of Shadows.

I was able to use the code R7V9J9N to get 20% off of Robinson Crusoe on Mars (you need a Visa card), as it is no longer a pre-order. I canceled my previous $58.52 order and re-ordered all three for $52.04.

Is there any way to see what qualifies for the deal without adding them into the cart?

Yes. There is a Buy 2, Get the Third Free icon on the product page. If instead there is one for the After-Holiday sale then don't bother; those aren't qualified.

Here's an example of each:

Army of Shadows with B2G1 icon

Galapagos with After-Holiday Sale icon

Thanks, got Cronos, Broadcast News, and Videodrome for $51.98. Slightly cheaper ($17.33/each) than they will be during the 50% off sale with the AAA discount ($17.99/each).

interestingly the code didn't work for my order of Robinson but for Cronos instead taking an additional 6 dollars off, it must be the tax, but my total came out to $55.10

I have not seen it mentioned in this thread but you can get almost 10% extra in cashback if you purchase through big crumbs.

I take it you can only use R7V9J9N once?

I want to get another three if I can use it again.

Sorry, but how did you get it $51.98. I keep trying but the best I can come up with is $62+. Any help would be appreciated.

Is Barnes and Noble usually this freakin' slow? I made an order consisting of the free 2-month pass, Army of Shadows, Paris Texas and Modern Times blu almost 16 hours ago and it hasn't shipped. I'd like to get my pass info so I can put in 2 more orders.

In the B&N thread, people are saying they are getting the emails late, but items do seem to be shipping as fast as usual.

Or, more accurately, I'm still trying to cancel my previous order. I manually canceled the items online yesterday, but my order still shows as processing. I emailed B & N yesterday morning as well, but got no response. I just finished waiting on hold for twenty minutes (!) before giving up.
