Yeah, I'm going to end up not ordering because of shipping and a lack of titles that I feel I need to own right now. Wanted On the Waterfront and Umberto D., but that still leaves me a couple bucks short of free shipping. I thought about adding a "random" title, but then I'm 60 bucks in when all I really wanted was On the Waterfront.

I'll hold out for the next sale when Band of Outsiders and Badlands are part of the deal.

Also, just saw that On the Waterfront Blu is OOS, so anyone wanting that will have to wait for the next one...

^ I'm in the same boat. All I really want right now is Rashomon but with the shipping factored in its not a great deal at all.

I've forgotten. How does it work w/ B&N? It's fifty percent off and then the ten percent cuz you're a member right?

Sometimes. Other times you'll get a coupon that you can stack on one item only, etc...

If they didn't charge sales tax I would have bought 3 titles to get the free shipping.

I will just wait for the B&N sale.

No sales tax for me so it must be just for certain states.

Actually. This is a better deal cuz of no tax for me. Disregarding the coupons right?

Edit: nope. B&N sale w/ coupon is still better.

And offices in New York.

This sale worked out well for me. I placed an order and instantly received an email stating I'd earned a $50 gift card. Placed a second order using the gift card.

Wow, that's pretty sweet. How large was your first order if you don't mind me asking? Or do they have some sort of rewards program?

This is only my second order directly from Criterion.

I think they give you $50 for every $500 you spend at Criterion.com.

That's correct. I've taken advantage of previous 50% off sales.
