50% off Modern Times at the Criterion Store

Modern Times is 50% off at the Criterion Store (Blu-ray and DVD).

Modern Times

Use Promo Code MODERN through 4/17 or while supplies last.

Not as cheap as a potential B&N deal with coupons, membership, etc., but a good deal for those that can't wait to get their hands on this title.

The shipping costs sadly kills the deal.

And it's not actually 50% off. I tried it and it lowers it from $31.98 to $19.97, that's not 50%, 50% would be $15.99

Still a good price, didn't try how much shipping was though.

Shipping is free on orders over $50. Otherwise, it's $5.95 flat rate per shipment. I'm not saying it's a great deal (I'm patient enough to wait for another B&N sale), but the price beats Amazon (even with shipping).

Yeah, this escapes a lot of people. When Criterion had a 50% off all movies weekend, people were complaining on their Facebook page that it wasn't 50% off of the sale price. I suppose they could clarify that it's 50% off of MSRP, but I've always assumed that as a given with most retailers.

For the record, I haven't gotten in on either of these deals because I'm patient enough to wait for (potential) B&N sales (w/coupons), but I know there are some out there that are more impulsive and might benefit from the sale.

Yeah, the shipping basically voids this deal, I really wish they would offer other options then UPS, it sucks when you only are ordering a single item.
