Re: Criterion Flash Sale 50% Off SRP for next 24 hrs

I wish there was another way to have gotten the free $10 Criterion was giving away with their Fall promotion last year but I never had a Facebook account and never will. I'm still super happy about my order though!

Just create a fake account for all the freebies companies throw out to Facebook only. No need to give any personal information or use the account for anything but all the freebies.

Pulled the trigger on Lady Snowblood, American Friend and Gilda. With the $10 Facebook credit and no sales tax, it works out to only a dollar and change more per title to what I would pay in July at B&N.

Yeah, do it. You'll be helping to throw off the advertising metrics Facebook gathers and sells.

If you can't find a phone number -- send a polite email now and get it in the pipeline and see if they can help out. [email protected]
I hit them up via e-mail, probably slightly more curtly than intended, since I was an asshole. They were all the same kind, saying that they'd refund me the portion the coupon was to take off. I got an e-mail today indicating that they had done so, but it has not yet shown up on my credit card statement. As they only did it this afternoon, I suppose it's quite reasonable to assume that it will eventually.

Order arrived today, but it seems I received someone else's BD's. They got the Graduate right, but the others are wrong. Correct invoice, though.

Did you E-mail them? They responded pretty quickly.

My order is listed under "Completed Orders" but has no tracking number. I didn't get an email about it being shipped either. Lame.

I only ever got the initial confirmation, but not a shipping notice and I haven't received them yet.

Did anybody else get a second email?

Mine said in stock when I ordered. I don't want them next week. All 3 of my titles are currently 21.99 on Amazon.

Check your online acct and see if the tracking number has been added to your order details -- if not I'd assume it hasn't shipped. If you ordered some of the more popular items you could be on backorder -- from memory Criterion orders normally are held until the full order in ready.

You could always send Criterion an email and make sure there isn't a CC/address problem, but I've have Flash orders take up to 3 weeks to ship when I was one of the last to order an item right as it was going OOS.
From reading various places I'd guess at least 1/3 or orders are still pending.
I had Lady Snowblood in there, and I recall their website saying those were going fast. That's probably the issue.

thanks

Re: Criterion Flash Sale 50% Off SRP for next 24 hrs

I got this from Criterion (names have been changed to protect the innocent)
Hi milo,

Thank you for your order during our recent 50% off flash sale. The in-stock inventory count at our warehouse was off, causing some films to backorder. No worries though, we have ordered more stock and will fill your order as soon as possible over the next week or so, honoring the flash sale price.

We'll send you a shipping notification and tracking number (where applicable) as soon as your order ships. I know waiting longer for your new films isn’t ideal, so as a thank you, I’m putting a $10 credit in your criterion.com account to use on a future order. Please let us know if you need help finding it in your account.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Best,

I guess we hit them harder than they expected.

As often as they do flash sales, this shouldn't be surprising to them anymore.

I ordered a dozen blurays and they came quickly and without incident. Additionally, they posted the points to my account before even shipping out the films so that they could be used during the same sale. I have found them to be very efficient and responsive.

Got the same email and the same $10 coupon. I'll just wait for BN brick and mortar sales from now on.

Do you have to email Criterion to complain to get the $10 apology coupon?
My order still sits in limbo and I have not received the apology email yet.
