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
Coupons should not work for PREORDERS , Nook, Legos, Rosetta Stone, Digital, Gift Cards, Memberships, etc. There are glitches where sometimes an excluded item will be allowed but assume that is the exception to the rule
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
The long standing Free 60 day Trial Offer was discontinued in late May 2016


STORE ONLY 15% OFF Coupons -- Unknown if multi-use or if will work on 40% Off Items
15% OFF Single Item Exp 12/31/2017 (I)
15% OFF Single Item Exp 12/31/2017 (II)
15% OFF Single Item Exp ?? (III)

25% Off One Item
coupon is valid at Barnes & Noble stores from November 24, 2017 to November 26, 2017 at close of business.

ONLINE ONLY
GIVETHANKS
valid 11/23 through 11/26 -- I'm guessing ending 11:59pm PT though it's possible they'll stop it ET and start a Cybermonday code


DAYMAKER 20% off $50 or more
Expires November 22, 2017 at 11:59pm Eastern Time.




Some possible upcoming codes
TAKEFIVE

"New Member" Welcome Coupons
Welcome coupons may be dead -- or at least the type that have been available for nearly a decade. The latest set now have what appears to be single use codes so these probably no longer will be generic/multiple use style.

I do own quiet A few Criterion's,but I hardly buy any more these days.
Limit funds.I have A bunch I still need to watch.I had three disc go bad.Sure they replaced them,but A gc to cover the shipping would have been nice.

Bought from Amazon
Woman of the Year and Two Lane Blacktop for $18 each.
Nothing from [email protected] this time.Plan to buy Ghost World down the road.
I collected Criterion titles during the various 50% sales until around 2011/2012 and then started slowing down my collecting of BDs. Unfortunately, like a dolt I sold all of the OOP titles I had as well as the extra cases Criterion sent me in the mail. Now I got to pay because I want them back!

I'm up to 65 titles during this sale.

I think, it could mean that the sale didn't meet expectations... due to coupon policy...

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!

I'm guessing they had far more Criterion inventory left at the end of the sale this time with the drastic change in coupon policy.

They better get used to it if they are going to keep refusing most coupons. Better off just doing the sale at Criterion's site.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!

They must have sent out a blistering internal e-mail within the last week.

A few days ago, I was able to argue that the wording of my coupon (rejected by the website) was applicable and get the friendly phone support person to manually apply the discount for me. Today, three people told me in no uncertain terms (but with different emphases and arbitrary bonus conditions) that absolutely no coupons are eligible on top of 'Promotions' no matter the terms or wording or anything. (Also, teo of the three said specifically that no coupons are allowed on any item that is already discounted... which I queried, as all their prices are typically discounted. I think that was misleadingly-communicated information.)

Why send a coupon that can't be used on some items? But, accepting that there are reasons for that, the ineligibles should be heavily flagged on coupon AND website, not hidden or omitted.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017! NEXT ONE?

Any guesses as to next sale? Great Criterion box set of 100 Years of Olympic Films comes out early December. It costs a lot tho worth it. $400 list price.
I could afford it at 50% off!

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!

Got an email yesterday saying the sale has been extended. Now I know it was previously announce through the 14th, but found it odd they sent another email noting this with only one day left remaining in the sale.

Does anyone know if it's been extended past the 14th?

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!

Now that coupons are all but banned during the Criterion sales, the sale is simply not as intriguing. Declining store inventory doesn't help my interest much either.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!

I never bothered with the coupons. Half off was sufficient for me to drop some coin and support both a B&M retailer (I like going to the Oak Brook location) and to support Criterion themselves.

Though I may still be sitting this one out as my job situation is still up in the air.

+1000 to this. $20 + tax for a Criterion Blu-ray is a very solid value in my opinion. I've never understood the obsession with trying to squeeze more discount from the store by (ab)using coupons.

If the LETSREAD coupon applies so much the better for those that have to order online. The coupon is listed online at their own website so nothing underhanded about it.
FWIW, I have no issue with attempting to use coupons in accordance with the detailed terms of the coupon.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!

The only titles I want are the November releases, so I couldn't get the coupon to work even if there is a small window.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!

I let my B&N membership lapse this year, as I never got much value out of it beyond the Criterion sales. I don't buy enough Criterions these days to justify the membership cost, particularly when Criterion has its own 50% off flash sales. Shutting down the coupons gave me a reason to let it go. Not a bad thing, since I have plenty of Criterions from past sales still in shrink-wrap waiting to be watched.

You can also do in-store pre-paid ship to home orders of the titles that release through December 12th for the sale price.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!

The only one Id like to pick up is Ghost World but its not really worth buying just one title because by the time shipping is added I could basically get it from Amazon for only a little more. Id consider the Coen Brothers films but theyd be double dips anyways.

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!

My cashier force the coupon through for my copy of Vampyr, but stated they can no longer be used during the Criterion sales. I told her I would no longer be buying the membership, but thanked her for accepting the coupon.
