B&N 50% off Criterion blu-ray sale now live from June 30 through July 28

The Criterion sale is now live online at B&N.com Says it's supposed to start at stores July 1 and run through July 28. Currently the only coupons are on the first page of the B&N coupon thread, but some 15% non-member and 20% member coupons should be arriving on July 3.

Thanks. Will the non-member coupon be 1 item/1 time usage coupon?

Probably just one use unique codes that can be used either online or at a store. Hopefully no online coupon restrictions this time around but will have to wait and see when the coupons show up.

Damn, where are those two 20% snail mail coupons that should be there well in time for this sale ? Got a couple of $10 GCs from Christmas to burn. Want to be careful with the spend this time. Report back with your loot, Members :-)

Yeah, this sale always puts me in the hole for a pay period or two. But fuck it, some good stuff out there, and we get to pre-order Scanners. I'll hold out a few days until we get some good coupons.

I asked a B & N media rep yesterday when this sale would start and he said he didn't know. They usually notify the employees a week in advance, he said.

My knee jerk reaction is to buy buy buy now! But... I know a coupon will arise and I will throw down my money for shit I don't need but goddamn do I want it.

Re: B&N 50% off Criterion blu-ray sale now live from June 30 through July 28

I'm going to limit myself to an even dozen---


Breaking the Waves
Foreign Correspondent
Hidden Fortress
Insomnia
Persona
Pickpocket
Picnic at Hanging rock
Red River
Rififi
Scanners
Thief
Throne of Blood
.


Who am I kidding? I'll probably pick up a few additional titles before it is all said and done.

Probably just Thief and Insomnia for me. I'll force myself to wait for coupons on Thief and just hope I catch Insomnia on one since that's being released near the end of the sale.

I picked up:

Insomnia
Scanners
A Hard Day's Night
Picnic at Hanging Rock
The Life Aquatic

Have to wait until Insomnia streets to get my order (to get free shipping), but well worth it.

Yeah. *sigh* I may be *pops neck* slightly miffed as to how Thief looks but I'm going to get it. Probably Rashoman, Life Aquatic, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Scanners, Royal Tenebaums, Throne of Blood, Insomnia, Walkabout, and Seventh Seal too.

The latter two somehow don't play now. The discs went like bronze/gold on the edges of the BD bottom.
Weird. Did my PS3 heat them or something?

my coupons came in the mail on Saturday. You should get them very soon if you haven't already. I had them hold some criterions for me, which they will do for 3 days.

Re: B&N 50% off Criterion blu-ray sale now live from June 30 through July 28

I had thought this was starting next week. So when I saw the post about the sale being live online, I started counting the hours till the store opened. At 9:05 am I was there at the counter with a big stack of discs and the cashier gives me a weird sour look
"the sale doesn't start until the first."

D'Oh!

So I gave her the stack to hold till tomorrow. They were surprisingly out of Ace In The Hole, so I may just hit up another location first tomorrow bright and early.

Hoping to be able to use the $8 coupon on a $100/$50 set along with the $5 off on a separate transaction.

Yeah, I went to the store and the clerk said the sale is not on yet. Disappointing.

The coupons are valid by Wednesday? Or are you hoping they will hold them longer than 3 days?

So I was messing around on the site and the online prices are 50% off, but if you select in-store pickup it goes back to full MSRP. I was thinking I might have found a way to outsmart the system, but nope. I guess I have to wait.
