Assume that all of these are available to all customers unless specifically listed as member only like the Welcome Package. Also remember that any preliminary codes are just that and BN could pull it, change the details or exclusions anything prior to release so always a bit of YMMV until the final release date

Mini FAQ
Free Shipping is $25 (before tax/shipping) or with membership.
Max 3 GC on a single online order.
Online only a single code can be applied to an order
Return period is 14 days after delivery (possibly 30 days for members though I've never tried)
Online ordered items can returned to a local store unless it's classified as a web-only item then it's at the store's discretion to accept

This looks to be the same type coupon as the BNWILD that just expired except it doesn't have a barcode yet. There are 2 different links to the same thing so I'm not sure if one will disappear at some point or be updated next week with a full in-store barcode.

Were there a lot of copies Of Mulholland Dr. there? I'm waiting till BF to pick that one up since my list of wants is rather small this time.
I've never had any luck with the $8 off of $40 at the Ala Moana B&N. I dont even try anymore.
They had a few copies of Mulholland Dr left. They'll most likely restock before BF, though.

Re: Barnes and Noble Criterion 50% off

From this sale... SO FAR...

Seconds
Anatomy of a Murder
Throne of Blood
Macbeth
Dressed to Kill
The Killing
Breaker Morant
Odd Man Out
High and Low

I will possibly be getting Salo, Mulholland Drive, 39 Steps, The Lady Vanishes, Foreign Correspondent, The Man Who Knew Too Much, and MAYBE Rashomon.

For sure though... I'm waiting for a coupon for The Cassavetes Set.

For some reason, I want to hold off on anymore Kurosawa. I went mad w/ that man in the DVD era. I'm trying to get films I never got in the previous format. It was a miracle I got Throne of Blood. But decided to get it w/ Macbeth for a double feature.

Ordered The Brood and Dressed to Kill from their site. My local store's selection is shaky at best, so figured this would be the easiest route.

Re: Barnes and Noble Criterion 50% off

I actually watched In Cold Blood yesterday - I usually don't have time to watch a title on the day I pick it up, but I had a business trip cancel on me. Great film.

Re: Barnes and Noble Criterion 50% off

Hrmmm. I kind of regret getting Macbeth now. I don't like it apparently. Maybe I shouldn't watch Throne of Blood right before Polanski's film?

Hoping to pick up Ikiru on sale this time around, the discount won't work until it's release on the 24th.
I'm curious too - I gather it won't last til the release of 'Downhill Racer' on the 1st of Dec.

just got my two 20% off coupons in the mail yesterday - looking forward to using them.

There's usually a 40% off all Blu-rays sometimes in Dec. if it's any consolation.

yeah, I thought that was when that sale began - I bought a boatload of Shout! horror blurays last year - couldn't remember which month though.

Re: Barnes and Noble Criterion 50% off

I went to get Mulholland Dr. today and it's out of stock online. Was going to reserve one at my local store, but online wants to charge me full price...not sure if that means it's full price at my local store as well, but I'm not taking the drive to find out.

Hoping it's back in stock before the 30th, but not holding my breath.

Thank you, I will probably be getting some more British TV again this year.

Thanks. Maybe I will stop by this weekend then and see what they've got.

Other email coupons should also be mailed Dec 3 -- normal style Unique ID non-member/member. Could be 15/20 or may well be 20/25%
Awesome !! Just got Apu Trilogy for $35.99 - if this 30% coupon pans out, will look forward to shaving an additional $4.50 off

Re: Barnes and Noble Criterion 50% off

Just a reminder for anyone who's interested:
Kurosawa's Ikiru was released today, so it now works with the coupons.
Just picked mine up with one the 20% off coupons, so it was $16 plus tax.
