Facebook: Criterion to release 50% off code on Facebook

To celebrate crossing 50,000 fans, we set up a promo code "THANKS" that gives 50% off MSRP on all in-stock DVDs and Blu-rays at criterion.com. But don't miss out — the code will expire after 50,000 seconds! (Sale started around 8:15pm Eastern time.)
To celebrate, when we hit 50,000 Facebook fans, we'll post a promo code for 50% off all in-stock DVDs and Blu-rays at Criterion.com, but get ready -- the code will only be valid for 50,000 seconds!
http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/CriterionCollection

Code = THANKS
They end up being $19.97
$50 for free shipping
tax in NY and Kentucky

Now 50,007.

Whoops, beaten. I think this is the longest I've ever stayed logged in, just to see that number climb.

Yeah, it's crazy, I can't even look at the films on the non-shopping page.

Super-crashed, I had some limited viewing, but now I can't check a damn thing. Think I'm gonna go with The Thin Red Line, Robinson Cruesoe on Mars and Solaris (if preorders apply!).

Re: Facebook: Criterion to release 50% off code on Facebook

I went to the Facebook link, but didn't see any code posted...am I just blind, or did I miss the deal?

Wouldn't hold my breath on it being valid for 13 hours.

All I want is Yojimbo/Sanjuro set on blu ray so I can upgrade from my dvd.

Seven Samurai would be nice, but I bet I can get it cheaper down the road.

Why?

50,000 secs is what, nearly 14 hrs?

You're really optimistic if you think they're going to let the sale go on that long.

Or, maybe I'm really pessimistic (or realistic).

I'd take The Thin Red Line and Paths of Glory with this offer. Hopefully I'm home when the code is released.
