The semi-annual 50% off extravaganza began on June 28 and lasts through August 6th.
No piggybacking the 20% coupons on to this sale. Not sure about the 10% member discount.
Online purchases as a member get you free shipping but no discount. For in store purchases members get 10% off no matter the sale price.
There's currently a 20% off general coupon? I've been looking in all the wrong places?...
Mine arrive via snail mail.
Ah okay thanks, nice mail carrier
The coupons are sent to folks who sign up for the annual membership.
Also, the 10% in-store membership discount is applied to the purchase price after the 50% Criterion discount, so you wind up with an effective discount of 55%. So far, my haul for this sale has been:
Dietrich & Von Sternberg in Hollywood Box
...with A Matter of Life and Death in my sites for next week.
Picked up carnival of souls
I've seen a few regular prices above what online sources have as full retail price. 50% off is still cheaper but not quite half price.
Finally picked up Paris, Texas. I swear I have it in my hands every year during this sale.
50% off is half price.
I’m 100% certain this is the quote of the day.
And, I'm 7% suspicious of his math abilities...
My purchases today-
Days of Heaven
Fanny and Alexander
Almost picked up “Woman in the Dunes” —- next time...
Not when the regular price is jacked up. It's like 2 for one sales when the price for one is above the price for the same item nearly everywhere else.
90% of the time, 50% off is half price; the other 10% of the time, its only 50% off...100% of the time.
Barnes and Noble is calculating the 50% off the list price of each title. No jacking up in any way. They are selling the Criterion Collection titles for 50% off. More-so with a B&N membership.
Now you owe them an official apology or no Criterion for you!
Great movie! If you haven't seen it, try not to read anything about it.
I saw it many years ago- probably in my 20’s- I used to watch a lot of foreign and Art House movies- I just remember the stunning black and white cinematography
that 50% off from criterion is a little ridiculous, at the end the movies go for $21 each more shipping, that's the normal price for a blu ray, they make us think that his movies normal price is $32 or around, a real deal will be $15 each!
Coupons and discounts not work online only in local stores.
I actually know people who work at Criterion. You need to remember they have to license all of their movies plus the costs of restoration add to cost. 20 bucks a Bluray isn't that much above cost.
I'm not saying that $20 is too much, I just saying that the "sale" is not a "sale", is just the right price, also the normal price on the site usually is $32, so the 50% off will $16, not $19.99.
There's no sale or deal here... the sales only works to buy in the right! price.
I only buy criterion on this sales, I refuse to pay $32 or around.
The list price is 39.99. 50 percent off is a great sale. Of course 100 percent off is even better if you feel like complaining.
