Since the other (and more coupon friendly) BN in my state is shutting down in the next six months, it's going to real difficult to use coupons on any BN Criterion sale in the future.

Anyway picked up:

Tokyo Drifter
The Ice Storm
Things to Come
A little irony that you posted Things to Come as your last title.

I got Repo Man for $19.99 from Amazon when they matched.

Yesterday I stopped in a B&M B&N and picked up The Qatsi Trilogy for $40. I submitted that price to Amazon several times hoping they would match as I have a gift credit with them.

I completely missed the sale this year. Don't they do it again in November?

Cool, I thought so, but I couldn't remember it that was the buy 2 get 1 free sale. The 50% sale is a better deal over all, so I'd prefer that. My birthday is in November so I like to treat myself to a few Criterions. Thanks.

I've officially decided that B&N's Smartmail service sucks big time. First order arrived with a nearly two inch diameter hole in the flimsy cardboard package, resulting in damage to the slipcase for Dazed and Confused and a puncture through the plastic case for Traffic. Second order arrives, Repo Man with a crushed corner on the slipcase, and Twelve Angry Men looks like someone ran their fingernail all over the package...indents everywhere...and a puncture.

There was also someone else's order of two Criterions included with a receipt. Four Criterion's inside of a Smartmail package? What's it take to get a sturdy box? Heck, I'll throw in a buck if that covers the cost and eliminates these challenges for them!

The movies are ultimately what matters most, but I'll admit that I am OCD with my Criterion's! Back these go to the local B&N and I'll instead simply wait for Amazon or Criterion's sale this fall.

Still waiting for them to ship my Devil's Backbone.

I can see I'll have to contact them again before they just cancel it on me.

Aaaand Devil's Backbone still hasn't shipped, yet remains in stock.

2 online chats, 1 telephone call and 1 e-mail and it still just shows an expected ship date of August 22nd.

They still haven't responded to my e-mail which they were supposed to have done within 24 hours, and it's now going on 3 days.

This is fucking ridiculous.

Since this thread is still near the top might as well post this here. B&N is running a B2G1F blu-ray sale. Looks like there might be online restrictions with coupons but have not confirmed it yet. New coupons are supposed to be coming in a few days. There are some titles going for about $30, so you could conceivably get 3 titles for $60 online.
