Re: CRITERION FLASH SALE Starting MARCH 8, 2022 Noon ET for 24 HRS

It should be either the 14th or 21st. Though it would be the latest date they've done it in over 10 years, I feel like they'd want to include Inland Empire and do it on the 21st. But doing it with a new John Woo release on the 14th isn't bad either, though they may not want to end the sale on the day they do announcements...

It looks like it's going to be the 21st. They sent out $10 GC to Channel subscribers as they normally do before sales start.

Sorry if this has been asked, but can you combine the gift certificate with this sale? I got it from them for a defective disc replacement that I wanted to use.

If they're from different batches of codes you should be able to stack them so you should be OK. I know people have been able to use and old and new $10 Streaming reward together, but I'm not sure/don't think you
could use 2 from the same Promotion.

OTOH, each sale seems to have it's own flavor so I'm declaring some sort of Good Samaritan Immunity

Great timing for once. I get paid this week, and still have another paycheck coming before March is over, so I can be a little frivolous for once. Maybe not Bergman box set frivolous, but I might even get more than my usual three titles/free shipping order.

Hey! I'm a loyal criterion shopper and I didn't get that email!

I was really hoping there would be a review of the upcoming UK Three Colors UHD set by now so I'd know if can safely buy the Criterion or not.

Me neither, man, although I did get an email when the sale went live. I guess ya gotta be a high roller, not a three-titles-and-out type of guy.

Got a lot on my want list, I'll see what's available later. Tempted to get Romeo and Juliet just in case Olivia Hussey's lawsuit results in permanent cuts to all releases.

Re: CRITERION FLASH SALE Starting MARCH 21, 2023 Noon ET for 24 HRS

Used my Criterion Channel subscriber $10 coupon and picked up (all on blu-ray):

The Silence of the Lambs
Repulsion
The Big Chill
The Gold Rush

The Silence of the Lambs finally replaces my non-anamorphic (!) 1998 (!!) Criterion DVD. The Gold Rush is also an upgrade (I hope and believe). I have the 2003 Warner/MK2 DVD set which has some weird issues related, I think, to PAL conversion. Big Chill and Repulsion and been on my wish list for quite a while and I've been itching to rewatch both lately,

The free shipping requirement went up to $75. Yikes. I had $40 in certificates to use up anyway.

Shaft 4K
The Incredible Shrinking Man
War of the Worlds (Mars is Red?)
My Darling Clementine

There is a glitch where you only have to spend in the 50 range to get free shipping. Otherwise, I would not have ordered.

I placed an order this morning, and it still seems to be free shipping over $50, if anyone's still on the fence.

Inland Empire
Local Hero
Design for Living
