Re: Criterion Flash Sale - 50% off

Criterion confirmed on Facebook that there would be an upcoming flash sale a few days ago, so I had my eyes peeled for this one...and a cart full of items. Picked up:

Autumn Sonata
12 Angry Men
Slacker
The Earrings of Madame de...
Letter Never Sent
Jubal

The first 4 I've seen, the last two are blind buys.

Also remember sale limited to stock on hand. Once a title is sold out it is no longer a part of the sale. No backorders.

That pretty much describes everything I would like to order. Shitty sale IMO. Iíll have to wait for the B&N sale.

How is the pricing compared to the B&N sale?

It's the same, or better, or worse. B&N is also 50% off but they charge tax to more places. But if you are a member you get 10% off but only in stores. B&N usually has coupons available at some point during the sale but they usually block them online for Criterions during the sale and using them in stores can be hit or miss.
Criterion has a loyalty program that gives you a $50 gift card when you reach $500 in purchases.

Devil's Backbone went OOS while it was in my cart.

Picked up Spartacus and a couple of others.

Amazon is having a 41% off Criterion sale.
