Criterion DVD's and Blu-Rays 50% off at Barnes and Noble 11/10

Starting on November 10, Barnes and Noble will be running their 50% off Criterion promotion for 2 weeks, according to multiple B&N employees.

Sale will occur online and in-store, but you can get them cheaper in-store than you can online if you are a B&N member. Here's how:

The list price for most Criterion DVD's and Blu-Rays is $40
The 50% off sale drops them to $20
Your 10% membership discount drops them to $18
And finally, this $5 coupon drops them to $13:


(thanks to LASERMOVIES)

(If the list price is $30, the 50% sale/10% member discount/$5 coupon will drop the price to $8.50)
The coupon can be used multiple times as long as your local B&N employees aren't sticks in the mud.

Remember, IT PAYS TO BE A B&N MEMBER, especially during this sale.
Not only that, but if you want to purchase a membership and just use it during this sale, you can get a full refund for your membership within the first month.

Happy hunting!

Oh great, exactly what I need -- another round of this. I'm a frugal guy for the most part, but this sale was absolute hell on my wallet a few months ago.

Awesome, thanks for the heads up. Sucks you can only use the coupon for one DVD/Blu-ray though, hopefully you can just keep printing them out and each trip use it again haha.

I will be getting a membership soon, cannot pass up this deal. Criterion's, here I come!

That's what a lot of people, myself included, did last time. I must have used that coupon about 12 times during the last Criterion sale.

Nice. Looks like I will be doing the same. I cannot believe these Crits are going to be so cheap. Think Christmas time will bring a BOGO for Criterion's?

Money is much tighter this time around, but I shall be picking up Breathless and The Golden Age of Television. I'll think about others if something else takes my fancy.

Yesss! I'll probably pick up Homicide and maybe Wings of Desire or Metropolitan. Too bad they moved back the Release date for A Christmas Tale.

Damn thing expires two days before "Gommorah" and "The Golden Age of Television" drop.

Oh well. I'll grab "Homicide" and "Z".

Considering its $35 right now, I'd suspect so.

The Blu ray is cheaper though, strangely. I placed an order with Amazon for it anyway. If BN still has it, I may order one for future consideration....

You're right. I was assuming it was at that price since a lot of the $40 Criterion DVDs were $35, but they're all sitting at $31.99 right now.

Quit kidding yourself man =) you know you're gonna get at least like 20 more titles. I remember the last sale you were always like, "but i need just one more..." you're addicted my friend, but that's def the pot calling the kettle black.
