50% OFF MSRP BRITISH TV Blu-rays Barnes & Noble 12/4/2018 - 12/17/2018

BRITISH TV 60% OFF 12/18 though 12/24/2018 -- extended and enhanced
Coupons were blocked starting 12/11 on both instore and online sales


British TV 50% Off MSRP Sale Dec 4, 2018 through Dec 17, 2018
Now becomes
British TV 60% off MSRP Sale Dec 18 through Dec 24, 2018

I would check other sources since many of the older DVD sets have been 60-75% off (or more on clearance) in the past so even with coupons it may not be a great price

Barnes & Noble Active Coupon Summary I'll try to keep it as UTD as I can during the next 3 weeks. Hopefully it will be a busy time editing.


Also note that there are some in-store items that are 60% off which aren't on sale online.
Notable
Doctor Who: Peter Davison Complete Season One [Series 19 British Reckoning] $70 MSRP, $63 online, but $28 in store or as a ship to home


I updated some of the post, but I'll leave all the below at the 50% just to be lazy
A few notable newer Bluray release items
Doctor Who: Complete Peter Capaldi Years $64.99
Doctor Who: Complete Season 1: Tom Baker $34.99
Last Kingdom: Season Three $22.49 (Preorder)

I'm just missing the last season of Orphan Black. I might pick it up this sale if I can find a good coupon.

Geez, Tom Baker with the 20% coupon from the mailer is really tempting. $27.99!

I'm not itching to repurchase the first season of Sherlock on Ultra HD Blu-ray. Still, if the 50% off sale applies to that, and I could stack a 20% off coupon and the 10% member discount on top of that with a ship-to-home order, $10.80 + tax could be tough to resist. The discount isn't showing online, though, so I wonder if it's an in-store-only thing like the Davison collection or if it's excluded.

4K items have been hit or miss in many of the 40% Off BD Sales so it could easily be excluded, but sometimes you just have to check in store -- or call and have one of the Phone people look it up

I actually thought the Davison set would be in the main sale since all the other DW sets are part.

I wonder why The Crown Seasons 1 and 2 are not included online. Isn't this series British enough?

I believe it's actually an American production, if I am not mistaken. This sale is almost always for UK-produced fare from certain labels.

Hard to know -- sometimes it's a studio thing, but there are always odd items that get left out, but British and TV isn't always the same category as "British TV" in retailer terms. " The Crown" is a Sony release and most of the sets I've checked are PBS(Direct), BBC Warner, and Acorn.

A few years ago the DVD Britt Sherlock Holmes was included,b ut the BD was classified in the system as Horror and not British TV (next year it was fixed).

Universal's Last Kingdom S2 and 3 are included, but not S1 (just like last year online though I think in-store S1 was included).

A couple other sets have shown to be discounted in-store though so it's worth checking.

That would explain and fit though many Canadian productions and a few AUS productions are included, but not all. I really interested in Brokenwood Mysteries, but it's a NZ production and not included

Good to know it is on sale in store. It is not on sale on their website where it is $63.

Any way you can share that 15% coupon with us? I don't see it referred to in the main B&N deal thread, nor does the BN.com site mention it. Thank in advance.

Should be in the WIKI of this thread and the Deal thread

I'd say 50-75% chance they'll be a better coupon tomorrow, but it's been much harder to predict coupons this year.
If you're worried about someone buying your local inventory, call the store and have them put it on reserve for you -- usually they;ll pull it and hold
it at the Front Desk for at least 72 hrs (double check the store policy on holds)

Quite a few Canadian productions are included for some reason. Sometimes Aus is, sometimes not (Miss Fisher).

Sometimes it seems random.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is as British as it gets, released by BBC Warner, but the system has it classified as plain "TV" (like Last Kingdom S1) and not "British TV" (Last Kingdom S2 and S3)

There isn't really a thread on this but I'd like to point out that the 25% coupon also works on Arrow Blurays that are 50% off as well. I snagged an Italian thriller for $15 (non member) and was very happy buying it at that price.

The coupons do work in-store for the Arrows, but so far only about 15 or so of the Arrows have been marked down in store of the 180-200 that are 50% online.

Which item did you get?

There's no UK release so I can't get it when Arrow UK has a sale and the only other version is an expensive release in Germany.

Was this a store pickup or a ship to home? Did it ring up 50% off automatically of the store override the price for you

I actually ordered that online since none of my stores had it in stock (almost no stores in the country seem to have this one) and I never even checked if it was 50% on for a STH order so I could have gotten my member discount on top of the coupon. I received it a couple days ago with TORSO (also US only) and Images which I just didn't want to wait on the next UK sale. Images was definitely not 50% off in store since I tried that item in 2 different stores and had the clerk look up 3 or 4 others none of which were on sale for STH orders.

The lady working in the media section of my store said that it came down that there would no longer be a 10% discount for membership if an item is on sale for 50% off or more, including Criterion and the current British sale. They were doing a grace period for long time customers. Also they would not take any coupons for what I bought which were the blu-rays of Tom Baker and Peter Davison season 1. I sent a question to B&N about the discount but haven't had a response yet.

We've heard tons of these pronouncements from management over the years -- illegal coupons, hacked websites, we can't do " ," the famous but never seen "memos from corporate," but so far the large majority of them have been empty excuses for an individual store (or manager or clerk) to deny doing something the computer is programmed to accept.

Maybe it will be a new policy, but until it the system believes it right no I continue to put it in the Overreaching Excuse pile. If 6-8 different stores from other regions report the same then I'll start believing.

For right now -- the 50%+Member+ 25% coupons are barely getting to Deep Discounts BOGO sale though the latter only has a limited number of overlapping items
Actually blocking coupons wouldn't shock me, but the member discount is going to be harder to explain - are they going to block the member discount on their 50% off books. will the member/coupon block overlap into the 40% sale

I look forward to the death of B&M Barney. Their employees are just overly eccentric weirdos, some of them are nice, but they have this really stupid ideology that coupons are somehow taking cash from their personal wallets. It's just insane and instead of dealing with these idiots I just want them to go away.

Do these people really think they can compete with Amazon if they don't have good customers service, a good selection of books and movies, and special coupons to reward their members?

Re: 50% OFF MSRP BRITISH TV Blu-rays Barnes & Noble 12/4/2018 - 12/17/2018

And in the I'll never understand it category -- why actively celebrate any store going belly up even if you hate them. What harm do they do for you to exist? Don't like them, don't go, then you don't have to deal with them. Is there a better bookstore in the wings that B&N is blocking from the property? Did BBY and Amazon improve after Circuit City went out of business or when Borders went under, did Book customers life improve from BAM, BN, Amazon, etc? Are the 25000 BN employees going to suddenly get a better job somewhere

But as all the competitors have disappeared, Amazon has gotten worse and worse with their policies, CS, and prices.

Hate Apple products, there are plenty of alternatives.

Hate Wendy's, why is it harming you to be in business. If they go bankrupt do other Fast Food restaurants suddenly get better?

Store pickup. Rang up at 50% automatically. I think when I made the reservation on the phone clerk said price was $19.99. I was more concerned that the 25% coupon wouldn't work.

Random surprise as is usually the case with BN. Most of the itmes that have had automatic 50% have been items that are pretty widely in stock and mostly US/English items -- Day of the Jackal. 12 Monkeys, Crimes of Passion, Re-animator, Hired Hand, Fish called Wanda, etc

Always up for a nice surprise though
