Re: B&N 50% Criterion sale on blu-rays now live!

Had a great clerk today at one of the locations- He let me use every distinctly different coupon in one transaction. Used the two 20%, one 15%, and the $5 off $50. Then I hit another location and picked up another title using another 20% off. Across the six titles, the average cost came to $16.88 (inc. tax). Not nearly as impressive as the $14.14 I was paying in sales past, but slightly better than I had been anticipating laying out this sale.
picked up-
Carlos
The Killing
The Four Feathers
Cul-de-Sac
Island Of Lost Souls
3 Women

Still looking forward to the Three Colors Trilogy and Fanny & Alexander. Those plus My Life As A Dog will do it for me for this sale. Under $17 is certainly a decent price, but it's just high enough to prevent me from picking up a lot of off the cuff impulse purchases, the way I've done in the past. Which is probably a good thing anyway.

Chase Freedom MasterCard has 10% cashback at B&N.

Re: B&N 50% Criterion sale on blu-rays now live!

Ugh. I was reaching for Cul-de-Sac when someone snagged the sole copy literally two seconds before me. And the odds of this store actually restocking before the 21st is pretty much nonexistent. Had to settle for Salo instead.

And that brings me to a question I should know by now:

When ordering in-store can you apply a store coupon and have the 10% membership discount applied? Or is just the free shipping minus the discount like when ordering online? I'm assuming it's not all of the above.

I wish I could use multiple coupons on each transaction but there is no way in hell that any of the cashiers that I've dealt with would allow this.

Ordering in store is the same as ordering at B&N.com: you can use the coupon but there's no member discount.

Re: B&N 50% Criterion sale on blu-rays now live!

Got Salo for $18 after coupon and discount. Ended up with the DVD by mistake and didn't realize it until after I opened it because I just grabbed it quick because I saw the blue sticker. That sticker was a "warning" sticker that looks just like the blu-ray sticker. The manager let me return it after I phoned them and explained. He was really awesome and actually pretty annoyed over the situation for me.

For the record I picked it up out of the "50% off Criterion" sale rack that had both DVDs and BDs.

Just "The Killing" for me, picked it up yesterday(had a quick little discussion about Kubrick too). I am getting Island of Lost Souls at Christmas time thanks to some website credit from a sponsor website of ours. I still have Cronos on my wishlist, but I think I will let that sit there for now.

Re: B&N 50% Criterion sale on blu-rays now live!

My girlfriend's been working in Louisville the past week, and I went out to visit her yesterday. While I was there, I came across a B&N, and made an impromptu pickup: The Battle Of Algiers, Salò, and The Four Feathers, all on Blu-Ray.

This one, but without a valid code it's worthless.

Re: B&N 50% Criterion sale on blu-rays now live!

My two month-trial from the last sale ended, so I opened another one for this sale. The 20% AMEX coupon is driving me crazy since I really want to use it, but I have multiple coupon-use issues with my store. I really don't want to go back for one title at a time.

Maybe I'll stack the 20% with the new member 5 off 50 coupon, since I've never had a problem with that. That will essentially give me 20% off two out of three titles.

Re: B&N 50% Criterion sale on blu-rays now live!

I got the Great Dictator and The Phantom Carriage yesterday. I went with the wife so each could use one of the 20% Amex coupon. The lady said "you know this is valid only with an American Express card" and we said yeah we each have one. Then after the 1st transaction the lady again said "I'm gonna let it slide this time, but you are not supposed to use two coupons at the same time" it was two different transactions with different credit cards so i dunno.
As we were driving home we notice that in one of them the coupon wasn't even applied. My wife said " turn around we are going back, she said I'm gonna let it slide as she didn't do shit". So we went asked to void the previous one and do it again this time with the coupon.

Looks like it was sent to a select few former Borders customers.

Indeed it was - I got one when they gave me a free B&N Membership, as I was a Borders Rewards+ member. Used it in conjunction with the member discount and coupons for a nice mini-haul...

Seven Samurai Blu $14.50 (after $8 coupon + 10% off)
Kuroneko Blu $12.60 (after 30% coupon + 10% off)
Total = $29.00 w/tax.

My haul:

Le Beau Serge
The Phantom Carriage
Carlos
Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom
Harakiri
The Four Feathers
Kuroneko
Dazed And Confused
Identification Of A Woman
Eclipse Series 28: The Warped World Of Koreyoshi Kurahara
Kapò
12 Angry Men Pre-Order
Rushmore Pre-Order
Branded To Kill Pre-Order
Tokyo Drifter Pre-Order
The Lady Vanishes Pre-Order
Design For Living Pre-Order
Belle De Jour Pre-Order
Godzilla Pre-Order
Traffic Pre-Order
The Moment Of Truth Pre-Order

Will be picking up:

Re: B&N 50% Criterion sale on blu-rays now live!

Props, yet again, to Laser! I got shutdown yesterday and was only allowed to use 1 20% off coupon, but today was a new cashier and got to use 11! I even got Ran and Exit Through the Gift Shop at 50% off because they mistakenly had 50% off stickers
