Re: B&N - 50% off Criterion Sale

My experience is that even with the "upgraded" member shipping, BN shipments take forever and a day. Every once in a while something will sneak through quickly, but those are certainly the exception. Now that the USPS has gone to hell, I assume it's even worse.

Mine got shipped directly from a B&N distribution center in my state.

Which warehouses do they still have outside of the main ALLIANCE Wholesale center -- Is this still out of New Jersey?

Managed to get through this one unscathed but the fall one might get me for Shrinking Man.

3 of the last 4 years (except for 2020) they have started the Friday before July 4th so July 1 would be the date to key on.

Re: B&N - 50% off Criterion Sale

I ordered from Amazon for same day delivery:
Pink Flamingos BD 19.99 plus tax
Shaft 4k 24.99 plus tax

I might stop in B&N just to peruse but in all honesty it's not really worth going in anymore.

Re: B&N - 50% off Criterion Sale

Went to my local B&N this morning and found 7 or 8 people buzzing around the section--like-minded souls!

Picked up Worst Person in the World and Double Indemnity. Will grab Devil in a Blue Dress later this month...

Re: B&N - 50% off Criterion Sale

Any significant sci-fi or swordplay titles recently released? I just bought stuff in the Arrow sale so I may have to skip this one.
