Just noticed that Rushmore and 12 Angry Men are going to part of it as well. Although you have to do a ship to home order or an online order for those titles. Weird most of the December and January titles are available at $19.99 for preorder as well. Might be just a glitch.

Preorders are valid at the moment. this hasn't happened in other sales, so it may be a glitch that only lasts for tonight.

They have included pre-orders in the past but only titles that were released during the sale time frame. However it is possible some of the later releases after November 21 could get yanked.

I'm guessing that 12 Angry Men and Rushmore will probably go on sale for a few hours online anyway. The online sale ends on Nov 22 2011 at like 2:57am right? So there's probably a 2 hour window there to order those two.

Not sure of the exact time it will end but would assume at least until 12 AM eastern.

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

The 12 Angry Men preorder is tempting... With Black Friday right around the corner, I wanted to limit myself to three Criterions. Guess I'll wait until next July to pick that one up... or see what deals Amazon can offer before then.

I ordered these with the 10% coupon:

Cul-de-Sac
Island of Lost Souls
Salo

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

I decided to place all my orders right away, in case they stop discounting pre-orders or stop allowing coupons to be used:

Belle de jour (Blu-ray)
Branded To Kill (Blu-ray)
Carlos (Blu-ray)
The Four Feathers (Blu-ray)
The Moment of Truth (Blu-ray)
Rushmore (Blu-ray)
Salo (Blu-ray)
Tokyo Drifter (Blu-ray)
Eclipse: Sabu!
Eclipse: 3 Popular Films by Jean-Pierre Gorin
Eclipse: Leningrad Cowboys

And that'll be all for me for this sale.

Preorders are now eligible, eh? Pretty cool. I might try my luck with in store coupons on a ship to home order.

Ordered 12 Angry Men. Design For Living, and The Lady Vanishes all preorders.

I will try using the 20% off Amex coupon with ship to home later today if the preorders are still included in sale.

Preorders are included, but none of the coupons can be applied to them, correct?

Just reserved 'Dazed & Confused' for store pick up which I'll grab on the way to work.

But the page when I placed the order only showed the $39.99, I'm assuming that it'll actually be the sale price when I pick it up.

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

Anyone have a list of all the pre-orders? Perhaps I'll make that plunge since funds may be less discretionary in a few days.

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

Thanks! As soon as I posted I realized it was easy to find. Here's the list of titles releasing after 11/21/11:

The Lady Vanishes
Branded to Kill
Tokyo Drifter
Rushmore
Traffic
12 Angry Men
Design For Living
Belle de Jour
Godzilla
The Moment of Truth

Also, no coupons working for pre-orders, right? So 50% off, free shipping, and the referral sites are the best route? Currently 8% at rebates minus the r.

Doh! Thanks. I thought I had looked at all the options, finding the Belle one, but somehow missed it. Oh well, kept it under $200 without that one at least...

Ordered:

12 Angry Men
The Killing
Videodrome
Island of Lost Souls

Though I guess I have to wait until 12 Angry Men is released to get any of them since I chose free shipping.
