Criterion Flash Sale: 50% off All Blu-rays and DVDs!

Just received the following email from Criterion on a one day sale.

Flash Sale: 50% off All Blu-rays and DVDs!

For only twenty-four hours, until noon tomorrow, all in-stock Blu-rays and DVDs will be 50% off the suggested retail price (SRP). Just enter the promotional code FLASH on your shopping cart page at Criterion.com to apply the discount.

If you need some help deciding what to buy (and have two and a half minutes), check out this video.

The code expires at noon tomorrow, so don’t delay!

Free standard shipping for orders over $50.

Had a leftover $10 code so I grabbed the Game for $15. Not too shabby.

I hate this sale. It's mis-leading to put 50% when the discount is applied to SRP. I understand they don't want to go 50% off the criterion price, but just advertise it as a 38% off sale or something.

Nothing is misleading. It's advertised as 50% off SRP.

I never said it's falsly advertised, just mis-leading. When the title of my email says: 50% OFF ALL CRITERION!!!!!!, I want to see 50% off the price that is normally listed, the Criterion price.

Don't forget you also get a $50 gift certificate once you hit $500 in orders.

A light order for me, just the DVD edition of House. I need something kooky and off-kilter in my collection...

Why not? You get free shipping and no tax (for most people) and are buying from a company with possibly the best customer service in the industry. I was going to wait for the next B&N sale but considering I have to pay tax, there's no longer a member discount online, and they didn't allow online coupons during the last Criterion 50% off sale, I see no reason to wait. Besides, there are a number of pre-order titles not eligible for this sale so I'll get them at the next B&N sale.

I ordered The Game and Rashomon. 50% off one, but not t'other. $52 total qualified for free shipping and I finally got to use my $35 in certificates.

This is no different than the B&N sale. Well, you can't use coupons but it's the same.

I placed one order and finally reached 500 dollars for the 50 dollar certificate and they sent the fifty to me immediately. So I did another order. I was thinking of passing on the deal, but this was good that they sent my bonus certificate right away.
But I don't understand why they won't allow back orders I was too late for The Game.

I was pretty happy with this deal. I don't really have the money to throw around on movies right now, but I happened to have $25 from a couple of the Blu-rays I sent to them for replacement. I ended up paying 92 cents for Godzilla Blu-ray. I can handle that.

Any idea if the 400 Blows ordered from their site will be in the plastic case? --Peter

^ I asked that during the last B&N Criterion sale. No one has ever reported seeing one in retail. Someone did say there were still a bunch of digipacks in the closet, seen during one of those "closet raid" videos posted on YouTube.

Re: Criterion Flash Sale: 50% off All Blu-rays and DVDs!

I was having a crappy day yesterday, so I decided to splurge (for me). Got:

* Harakiri
* The 39 Steps
* The Lady Vanishes

I'm actually fine with the old Criterion Hitchcock DVD set, but since I'm in a Hitchcock Blu-Ray mood (waiting for the pretty UK Blu set to release), I figured why not.

99% sure I remember seeing 400 blows in the plastic case in my local B&N.
