Stalker

I'm literally running out of shelf space. I need to figure what I could dump, I can't add more shelves in our small place.

Since they don't offer the free membership anymore I'm going to wait until the middle of the sale to buy the membership use it for summer/fall/summer and then wait for the next sale and do winter/summer/winter. 3 sales justifies the membership. Gotta squeeze every dime now that coupons are a no go.

I'll be picking up:

The Before Trilogy
They Live By Night
Straw Dogs
The Lodger
Lost In America
Ghost World
Stalker
Rumble Fish
Being There
Buena Vista Social Club
Blow Up
Fox and his Friends
His Girl Friday
Kes
The Exterminating Angel
Mildred Pierce.

The membership thing is too much like Prime for me; I wouldn't use it enough to get value.

This for me also. Although I am reconsidering a Prime membership. I find I'm making the vast majority of book purchases from Amazon as their prices are substantially lower than B&N even with a coupon.

I get B&N non-member coupons (15% mostly, but sometimes 20% off, 25% rarely) every so often, but the past few years I've been buying so little stuff from B&N. It doesn't make any sense to pay them X amount of dollars per year for the privilege of paying them a little less on a rare occasion. B&N isn't a warehouse club offering me substantial discounts for being a member.

Now and then I buy a magazine at B&N and I'd probably buy more if coupons would apply to them, but they're always an exclusion.. although I don't think they always were. Occasionally, I'll find a collectable at some considerable discount on a clearance table. Sometimes a coupon will be good for them and that will push me to make the buy.

What time do these sales typically go live?

Any idea why the VACATION code would work on a couple items in my cart but not on "Blood Simple"?

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!
 
I get the same message, too. It worked fine for "Yi Yi" and "Ghost World. But, of course, there's no indication that it will work during the sale.

Edited to add that the vacation code isn't working, but titles are slowly being updated to its sale price.

Ordered:

Straw Dogs
Stalker
Ghost World

VACATION code did work for Ghost World ($4 off), but didn't apply to the other two titles.

Does Amazon price match Barnes and Nobles sale?

Re: Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale 2017!
 
VACATION worked on the Before Trilogy.

VACATION worked on Ghost World and the Del Toro set for me.
