I got the $10 credit for setting up the My Criterion. Very nice surprise that pretty much forces me to buy something.

Same here. I had sworn off buying any films for a while, but this is too good to pass up.

Just set-up a My Criterion account, and wishlist. I won't get my hopes up regarding the $10 coupon though.

Thanks for the heads up.

For anyone else that didn't get an e-mail, check your spam filters. Mine was there. I'm not sure why, but the title of the e-mail is "Make your Valentine's Day wishes come true!"

Anyway, mine is a credit, so even those of you without an e-mail, if you already had an account, it may just be there waiting for you.

Also, these are off MSRP (as the Criterion e-mail states). People seem to get agitated every time Criterion has a sale because it isn't 50% off the "regular sale price."

Re: Criterion 50% off Valentine's Day

Why is there no "cart" or "wishlist" button on the criterion shop site? Or am I missing them somewhere?

Re: Criterion 50% off Valentine's Day

Top right corner is "View Cart," not sure if being signed in makes a difference. If you go to a DVD/BD you want to add, there is an "Add to Cart" button and "Add to List" button.

Re: Criterion 50% off Valentine's Day

For some reason the code doesn't seem to be working for me?
Nevermind, I thought the sale started at midnight, not noon.

OP states it begins at 12 EST. That hasn't happened yet.

This was a nice surprise. I think I'll finally pull the trigger on the Lady Vanishes blu-ray

It looks like their online store crashed. "We’re sorry; something went wrong."

Getting the same message. They must be getting hammered.

Re: Criterion 50% off Valentine's Day

I did a lot of refreshing, got it to work. But without the $10 coupon, it's still $20 a pop. I think I'll wait until the next Barnes and Noble sale...

Got the Lady Vanishes for $5.92 with $10 credit and $10 gift certificate from the Three Colors White trade-in. Not a bad deal at all!

Re: Criterion 50% off Valentine's Day

I guess they aren't interested in selling much or they would have had the website ready for the sale today.
