Criterion Flash Sale 50% Off SRP for next 24 hrs (ends 2/24 at Noon ET)

https://www.criterion.com/sale

All in-stock Blu-rays and DVDs are 50% off SRP with promo code FEB50 (case sensitive, no spaces)

Site says end time listed as 12pm ET Wed 2/24 -- looks like the clock corrected itself and is now counting down until noon

Criterion.com is required to collect sales tax for orders shipping to New York and Kentucky

$50 for Free Shipping

Probably a credit card promo.

And every time Criterion has a sale, something turns me off to it. This time, it's Lady Snowblood not being on sale. Pass yet again.

I believe he is talking Loyalty Points. If you spend $500 from the Criterion website you get a $50 GC for your loyalty. Just check under past orders to see how many loyalty points you might have accrued.

Might be the browser you are using. Using Google Chrome in the shopping cart below the items you order it should say

ENTER A PROMOTION CODE What’s this?

Lady Snowblood worked for me. Everything that is not a preorder should work.

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

Can someone recommend a film by Ingmar Bergman? Like what is the first film I should watch?

For those that do not already have them, they have the Classic Hitchcock boxset included in this sale which includes 4 Hitchcock films for $47.47 after the code. Pretty good deal for around $11.87 for each. I nabbed it along with Mullholland Drive.

Same price for the "Rock Box", which I didn't even know existed until today. It includes A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, MONTEREY POP, GIMME SHELTER and QUADROPHENIA. Easily the cheapest you'll pay for these without having to beg and barter with Barnes & Noble coupons in a public place.

I'm kinda concerned that Criterion is gonna make these bundle packs a regular thing now that I own nearly every title I ever wanted.

Weird, the coupon didn't take for mine, but the others did. Any way to get it applied?

Speedy is backordered and it wouldn't give me the discount. So it has to be in stock to qualify. Unhappy about that.

Nevermind, I just clicked the button again to apply and it did. Didn't this morning, but the site got slammed so maybe it affected it somehow.
