Buy 1 get 1 free Criterion sale at B&N from 12/10 through 12/16

Thought I would start another thread since it is a different sale.

Criterions will probably sell at list but with the B1G1F promotion they would be 50% off if you purchase 2 at the same price. Most likely coupon restrictions again online, but at stores it's probably ymmv as usual.

Here are all the details.

http://cart2.barnesandnoble.com/shop...&promoid=11525

Buy One Criterion Collection DVD or Blu-ray, Get One Free Offer Details

This offer is in effect at BN.com from 12:01 a.m. EST December 10, 2013 to December 16, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. EST, and at Barnes & Noble stores from December 10, 2013 to December 16, 2013 at close of business, while supplies last.

Buy one (1) qualifying DVD or Blu-ray from our Buy One Criterion Collection DVD or Blu-ray, Get One Free promotion and get a second Criterion Collection, DVD or Blu-ray of equal or lesser value free! Simply look for the Buy One Criterion Collection DVD or Blu-ray product page icon or message or store product label on select DVDs and Blu-rays. Limit of ten (10) redemptions per customer.

At BN.com: Simply place 2 qualifying DVDs or Blu-rays in your BN.com Shopping Bag, and proceed to Checkout. Your credit for the least expensive qualifying DVD or Blu-ray will appear at Checkout. Shipping charges may apply.

At Barnes & Noble stores: This offer applies only to the selected DVD and Blu-ray titles with a "Buy One, Get One Free" store label. Buy two (2) or more qualifying DVDs or Blu-rays and you will get the least expensive qualifying DVD or Blu-ray free.

Additional Rules Governing this Offer: This offer is (i) not redeemable for cash or cash equivalents (including Gift Cards or eGift Cards); (ii) not valid on past or pre-ordered purchases; (iii) not eligible for purchases of any other products other than Blu-ray or DVD discs bearing the Buy One Criterion Collection DVD or Blu-ray, Get One Free icon or message (iv) not valid on shipping or handling expenses, or applicable sales tax; (v) not valid on purchases made from third parties accessible from the BN.com website (e.g., used books, etc.); and (vi) not valid at Barnes & Noble College retail bookstores or websites. This offer may not be combined with any other coupon or promotion, or with the Educator Discount. Void where prohibited by law.

Returns or cancellations that affect the minimum number of items purchased may result in a charge for the item of lesser value originally received as free.

Looks like there'll not be a crossover with the up-coming blu-ray sale, sadly. Oh well!

How did you get that to stack. Didn't work for me. Unless you're talking about in-store purchases, then ahhh, ok.

It's only at stores because Criterions are not eligible with any coupons online.

Same exact story here. The trick for me is having a go-to cashier who's willing to try any coupon.

Is the 25% off a coupon or another promotion that is currently running?

This would be cool if there were criterions I actually wanted to get. Anyone have any good tips on good criterions?

That's akin to asking us what music you should be buying. Without some details as to likes and interests it's an impossible question to answer.

Both. There is a 25% off coupon on the first page of the B&N coupon thread that is valid for all customers. No membership required. They are also running a B1G1 free sale on Criterions for 1 week. Basically it's a 50% off sale before coupons or any applicable member discount at stores. Great deals when you combine both.

I had good luck today picking up reserved copies of Autumn Sonata and Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion with the B1G1 sale combined with the 25% coupon and member discount. Think I had enough of the Criterion sales until next year when more new releases come out to replenish my wish list.

Salo or Antichrist would be a perfect way to start.

Very funny. I've actually seen Salo. Very shitty movie, both literally and figuratively.

Ok good point.

My likes are mainly action, comedy, suspense/thriller, horror. Grew up on Arnold/Stallone type stuff.

Don't care for drama and/or romance type stuff.

Only KINO I have is Birth of a Nation blu ray (sold the DVD when I got the blu ray)

Try "The Game". More mainstream. Lacking Arnold and Stallone but none of their movies have been given the Criterion treatment. Maybe if they were in a Michael Bay movie...

I picked up Nashville and Investigation of a Citizen for 29 and some change after tax. We have a membership and I used the generic 25% off coupon. A better deal than getting them during the sale with coupons except for getting the Zatoichi set.

Bought The Following and Naked Lunch for $27 + tax after membership and 25% off coupon. Debating if I should go back for one more round tomorrow before the coupon expires.

Thanks!

Awesome. I should have had the Seven Samurai and Yojimbo Blu-rays in my collection a long time ago, and I just used this offer to rectify that mistake. It's not every day you see $39.99 being discounted in your shopping cart before placing the order.

I didn't want any Blu-Rays this time around, so I went ahead and ordered Jigoku & Youth of the Beast online.

Shame no local stores had these in stock, or I would have tried to get coupons applied

You should ask the cashier work in movie & music department they can do order in store and shipped to you with 25% off coupon.

Got these at the final buzzer last night for $22.50 plus tax:

Gate of Hell
The Makioka Sisters

I'm starting to become a Classic Japanese Cinema geek and I don't need samurais in them either.

I didn't think of that and I think I remember a lot of you mentioning doing that in past sales.

Thanks for the heads up!
