I'm good with the second post. Since I don't bother with Blu this is the first I'm hearing about it. Thanks OP.

You should also read the B&N Coupon thread as that's where the majority of the B&N discussions take place.

I'm all for separate threads on some of these new sales simply because the generic store threads can become too long and unwieldy to navigate. The VIEW FIRST UNREAD feature on this site rarely works the way it's supposed to, so I support a new thread alerting people to a sale/deal/bargain rather than always tacking it onto an already bursting at the seams thread.

I think we should have a separate discussion thread to discuss the organization of the threads and how many we need for each topic.

There have always been two different threads for the Criterion sale. Actually up to now the regular bargain forum was usually the first place it got posted. There should be no argument against posting it here as well.

Diabolique
Kiss Me Deadly
Zazie
Solaris
Black Moon
People on Sunday

on blu are all 27.99 at the moment. that means with a b2g1 sale and a 10% coupon you lower the price per title down to around $16.

Also, it appears BN has Pierrot le fou in stock.

Fixed! It says Pierrot Le Fou is available in 1 to 2 weeks on the web site.

If you were strictly going to buy online for the Criterion sale it wouldn't be a bad idea to get some of these titles with the b2g1 sale since there is a good chance of online coupon restrictions during the Criterion sale.

Last night The Great Dictator was priced at 35.96, because I would have rather ordered it.

It must have changed for a few hours then as I looked at it yesterday afternoon and it was 27.99.

I think there needs to be one thread for the DVD bargains, and one thread discussing organization for a Blu thread, as some people only venture to only one of those areas.

Perhaps we need to open a thread discussing if there should be one or two threads to discuss the organization of threads.

How are you going to get better prices in store, now that the $5 coupons won't take?

If you have a membership I would assume there could be some 20% to 15% store coupons during the sale. There is still a $5/$50 that should work also.

I should add it's not a bad idea to buy some of these Criterions now regardless where you plan to shop during the sale since it is a good price. I purchased 3 myself a couple of days ago from the list for about $15 each shipped total utilizing every discount I could.

So... is there an easy way to get a list of DVD-only titles that Criterion has released since the last sale? I just want to see if anything needs to be added to my want list...

Go to criterion.com and search by release date and format.

DVD-only titles? All the new releases get Blu treatment now.

I think the last Dvd-only title they put out was L'enfance nue. That was in August of 2010.

I'm thinking he meant he wants just a list of titles they have released on DVD because he isn't interested in Blu-ray titles.

I've been getting Criterion BDs for around 15-17 dollars during the B&N B2G1 and the Deep Discount sale so there won't be nearly as much for me to get during the Criterion sale. I'll get some sets and try to get some pre-orders.

On a related note, yesterday I found a nearly new copy of the Criterion DVD of The Third Man at FYE for $25. I had a 30% off coupon and a membership so it only cost me $17 and change. I wish it had been Blu but I'm happy with the DVD.

LASER, I know it's your busy time of year but can you detail how you were able to get three Criterions before the sale for $15 each? Feel free to use blocks and flashcards.
