Criterion Collection + B&N 50% Off = What did you get?

As most of you know...

Barnes & Noble is currently having their 50% Criterion Collection film sale at all B&M and online shops -- Early on a lot of consumers made out exceptionally well with B2G1F sales as well as added discounts due to being a valued card member.

I thought it would be fun to have people post up comments or images/video's of their hauls...

If you would like to gloat on what you paid that would be great to see what others are paying as well as bragging rights!


I've already purchased 18 films in 3 days and I'm heading out to score some more after lunch -- I'll be posting up pictures and pricing information later on.

Thanks, arbogast777.

But the discussion post is for generally letting people know about the sale and posting up coupon codes that are used as fast as they are posted. (side note of hilarity)

No, the discussion post in the bargain forum is for discussion of all aspects of the Criterion sale. That's why you have so many people in there listing exactly what they bought. By your rationale, we should have an ongoing thread in this forum about what people have bought at Amazon. Should we also start a thread here when DeepDiscount has a sale? HD Talk is NOT the place for discussion of sales. If you want to gloat about the Blu-ray that you just bought and feel the thread in the bargains forum isn't good enough, you can also go here as well.

I like how people act like it is so busy/congested here that this forum can't afford a thread like this to exist in this space

my B2GO haul





ps. I'm sure they all look and sound great (hopefully that covers this being in the HD Talk forum)

Rushmore
Harold and Maude
Tokyo Drifter
Branded to Kill
The Gold Rush
Tiny Furniture
The Last Temptation of Christ
Godzilla

Might go back and get the Samurai Trilogy and Shallow Grave. I seem to be less enthusiastic about the sale this time.

I've gone to 3 physical locations and Rushmore was gone at all three. I also had a problem with finding Gojira -- So the last one I went to ended up going to (which was closest to the house) I decided to go ahead and put a order in for both...

That was 3 days ago. I'm hoping it will be in while I'm on vacation this week.

^ They have a good track record of replenishing stock during this sale.

Is it because you've gotten most of the titles you've wanted in prior sales or from lack of interesting titles?

With me, I haven't been in the market for Criterion's for over 3 years... I've gotten a promotion with my job and have a bit more disposable income to expand on a hobby that I wouldn't have been able to otherwise.

So right now its pretty much catch up.

Thanks, BuckNaked2k.

I've been scratching for a couple other titles that weren't available at the time of visit...

I also talked to a couple of the staffers and they mentioned having a stash of stuff that they were holding off the sales floor until payday. For some this would irritate - for me this one of the incentives for working at a location. (profiteering is another story all together)

A couple of the female employees found it funny how much the guys at the locations were going nuts for these sales.

I find these types of sales as a perfect conversation piece to engage in with the employee's to gage how sales are without picking up trade mags.

The personal approach is always more rewarding.

That's another reason why I don't like ordering online when a sale is available at a B&M location.

Harold and Maude

I've only bought that so far, because it was the thing I wanted the most even before the sale started. There are still about 3 titles I want to pick up, but the sale goes until July 30th, so I'm in no rush

Hey guys, just a heads up on this...

I went to purchase a few more titles this evening and was wondering why my copy of Godzilla had yet to arrive. I was told by the attendant that my order was cancelled!

She informed me that there was two locations in town that had copies and called ahead. But while checking for availability she noticed that there was a return to warehouse order placed on this title...

I had her hold the title at the other location and hurried over to snag it up.

The employee (who was a department head) said he seen the same memo placed and was getting ready to pull them off the shelf before the Polaris store called...

Not sure what the deal with this is or if something has changed with this sale and the inclusion list.

Anyone have any connections regarding this?
