Crap. Wish they'd wait a week, I get paid on Friday. I'll probably do my minimum to get free shipping though. I'm really close to the gift card. If not this sale, definitely by the October or November one.

Thanks, I'll probably sit this one out, I don't have enough to get to $75 right now, I'm finding myself drawn more to the other boutique labels.

Re: Criterion Flash Sale - February 2024

I'll probably get a couple of titles. CC lets you stack those coupon codes that the criterion channel sends out and I have $30 worth in my account, so that's going in on an order.

2 orders placed (1st with $10 cert, 2nd with $50 that the 1st triggered) -- no slowdown, no crashes, No drama at all

FREE SHIPPING limit is now $75 after discounts are applied -- it appears they fixed the isse from teh last couple sales

Note the FS doesn't apply on the checkout steps for seems to always show 7.95, but is reflected on the Checkout screen/order review stage

I tried making an order and only got to $69. I'll just wait for the next B&N sale and get stuff then.

Re: Criterion Flash Sale - February 2024

Just placed my order:

The Apu Trilogy (UHD)
Blood Simple (UHD)
Days of Heaven (UHD)
The Heroic Trio / Executioners (UHD)
McCabe & Mrs. Miller (UHD)
The Roaring Twenties (UHD)

Blood Simple and Days of Heaven are upgrades; I hadn't actually gotten around to picking up any of the rest on Blu-ray before this.

I was close enough to a $50 GC that I probably should've broken this up into two orders, but whatever; I'm prepped for the next flash sale.

I splurged this time around catching up some recent 4K releases: Roaring Twenties, Lone Star, Trainspotting, Blood Simple, Days of Heaven, The Others, and Mean Streets.

Sorta like that days when free shipping was $50 and most discs were $20. You'd buy 2, and with shipping like 8 bucks, it was more economical to just add a third disc to your cart. I fully believe this was intentional, to get people to buy that "one more" disc for the free shipping.

I just bought "Eclipse Series 37: When Horror Came to Shochiku" & "TheHeroic Trio/Executioners" from Amazon. The former was about the same price as this sale, & the latter was 10 bucks more. BUT, I used credit card & gift card money to pay for 'em, so I can't be too cheezed off.

$69 worth of sale priced items should have been enough to cross the threshold given the way Criterion calculates the free shipping.

Except if you'd bought them from Criterion today, you'd be 60 points closer to the 500 you need for a $50 gift card.

Kept it light, myself.
The Heroic Trio/Executioners
Jackie Chan: Emergence of a Superstar

That gets me to 500, but I think I'll hold on to that till the Fall sale.

Re: Criterion Flash Sale - February 2024

Do they usually have these more than once a year? I’ve been considering getting the Criterion channel and if they toss out codes, I might just hold off until the next one.

Two a year. Usually February and October. I don't remember if it's happened every time, but they almost always send out a $10 gift card before the sale starts. They'll send them out other times as well, but those might only be for people who were day 1 subscribers. All I know is that before I ordered this go around, I went through my email and found $70 worth of codes.

I looked again this morning (cookies kept my cart info) and it clearly says I need 5 and change more to hit the threshold.

I'll wait, my backlog is already huge and what disc did I choose to put in last night? The Empire Strikes Back for about the 5,000th viewing.

​​​​​​Huh. They must have tweaked how they do it then.
