You just got a bad CSR. I'd call back, before mailing, and talk to another CSR.
I'd bet you'd have better luck with a PM/refund. Good luck!

Snapped up The Red Shoes, but it won't ship for 9-11 days. But, I'm lucky I got my order in. Ah well, I'm a patient man, been eyeballing it for a good price since it was released. I'm mulling the BBS set. How long you peeps think this sale is going to last? I'm guessing not long, since M just shot up to 33.00.

No, it didn't. M is still 17.99 from Amazon. You fell for the "we're out of stock so we will show you a Marketplace seller's price by default" trick. I fell for it once too. I really wish they wouldn't do that.

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

I've watched a couple of Ken Loach's movies in the last month, and expect to watch several more in the next month, so I ordered Kes and I'll probably watch it just about as soon as I get it. Still thinking about several other titles. I also ordered Splice, which I'm also eager to see, although not quite as eager.

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

I picked up a few more releases....This really helps me out come July (hopefully) Criterion sale. I'm pretty much caught up on the blu-rays I want...I'll only have to grab a 5-6 of the upcoming releases and 3-4 DVD boxsets I have been meaning to grab.

It's ok to buy DVDs when you are relatively sure the films will never make it to BD.

I bought 4 on Monday and the only Criterion to appear in my Gold Box is the old, crappy version of Diabolique. Nice try, Amazon!

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

I bought one Crit y'day and another Blu (plus a book) and still have zero quick picks, much less Criterions. Jerks. I spend a lot of money with you Amazon, why are you making it harder to spend more?!?

Bought 3 from the Gold Box today: Kes, Yi Yi, and Au Revoir les enfants. All were BD and all were blind buys.

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

Well, as some of you noted, Amazon automatically refunded me the difference in price for Blow Out, so I took that $8...and sunk it right back into Amazon, picking up The Double Life of Veronique.

Two CC's in the Gold Box today after my order of yesterday: Paths of Glory for $17.09. Nice price, but I have it already. And The Great Dictator, which isn't on sale.

I finally caved in and bought Le Cercle Rouge and Au Revoir Les Enfants today. I ended up rewatching Au Revoir Les Enfants on Netflix last night and the last 45 minutes of the film were very powerful especially the end.

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

I have the BBS set in my quick picks, but I can't get myself to pull the trigger. You guys that aren't getting Criterions to show up should remove everything from your recommendations except dvds/bds.

Or buy a Criterion and see what's in your box tomorrow.

Re: Criterion Blu-ray Sale at Amazon

Did anyone else receive a damaged Blow Out case or am I just unlucky? The disc is fine, but the case has dents all over the back and ripped artwork. Looks like I'll be waiting a couple weeks now for a replacement.

Just e-mail Criterion, they will ship out a replacement case within a day.

Check post #20.

Got a few more Criterions in my Gold Box, and the only two I'm interested in - Days of Heaven and The Great Dictator - are not on sale.

With artwork? I'll give it a go and cancel that replacement order if I here back from them in time. Do you have the email address I should send the request to? I'm looking on the Criterion site and see about 4 different email addresses.

edit: This looks like the right [email protected]
