    I've tried at 4 stores. Seems that one kind of sale they just won't coupon for, they're fine otherwise

    I feel for you, I really do knowing all they have to do is scan the coupon. This one seems easier to do than most.I hope I don't make you feel too much worse, but I did get to use it twice today on 4 39.99 title(different stores) for net $13.50 per title+ tax and another time on the Doctor Who 3D (less than $12 after tax). Not quite as good as the $50 sale with the 30 and 40%, but very tolerable particularly since I'm buying these with GC's I bought for the $10 Promo cards (I've got a pocketful of $10 cards to use after Christmas)

    Nah, I'm fine, especially after getting the 40% on Zatoichi. I also have the complete set of criterions except for World Cinema, so it's not like I have a lot to run around and try to get anymore.

    A reminder -- BN currently has 40% MSRP on all instore Blurays. A large number of online items also are listedat 40% off. This sale ends Christmas Eve in store.Unfortunately there aren't any discount online codes this week, but there are 25% off Coupons available for instoreavailable to members and nonmembers (some members also got a 30% code).If anyone needs a coupon, I have several that I'm not going to use so I can send them to you via PM or email if you wish.Just request what you need here or via PM and I'll get them to you as quickly as I can.

    Excellent question, David. I am really anticipating this next sale. I've got LOTS of catching up to do.

    I'm sure someone will post on the exact minute the start of the sale becomes known.

    I haven;t heard anything on any of the forums. Based on past sales dates the most likely starting date would be 11/4.There haven't been any rumors that would indicate discontinuing their most popular movie sale of the year.Normally there's a couple week heads up on the dates unless and employee drops a line somewhere.

    Their website is offline for "maintenance." Guess they don't want to make too many deals.

    Been up and running without a problem for 10 hours so lots and lots of orders already in place. I'm going to suspect it will be back sometime over the next 14 hours.

    Was there already two 50% off sales in 2014? I feel like there was a winter one as well?

    Not a Crterion 50% sale. There was a different brief 50% off some (Childrens) items early in the year.

    Nov 2013, July 2014 were the last two full 50% Criterion
