    Everything 50% off direct from Criterion. Not a bad deal at all. Have they ever done this before? I wouldn't have known, but I recently signed up for their newsletter.

    They had one back in the fall (October or November) but I can't remember if there was ever one before that.

    Just a little Heads Up here: The sale is only for items IN STOCK. So don't make the mistake I did, and load up your cart with Pre-Orders ... you'll just have to take them all out and start over. Still, some very nice buys since the last Barnes and Noble Criterion Sale.

    If they do it won't be announced in advance. The e-mail will show up the morning of the sale. Best way to make sure you know of any flash sales is to get on their mailing list!

    The site is slow, but I was finally able to get an order through after several site timeouts and refreshes.

    I was at $157 to go before the sale lol.I could have saved like another $20 waiting for the July BN sale, but I wanted to earn my GC and there's going to be more than plenty to buy in July. I'm pretty much back to just buying the stuff I really want when it comes out then bringing my collection back to complete at these sales.

    That didn't take long. I was able to order that title an hour ago. I was bummed that The Hidden Fortress is still a few weeks away from release, so I couldn't get that title on sale. Oh, well, it goes on the wish list for the next sale.

    Jules et Jim is on backorder. I was about to pull the trigger, then decided to wait until after lunch, while I thought about whether I really wanted another of my selections. Oh well, there's always the B&N sale this summer.

    Duh. So it's back in stock again. But guess what? By the time you add shipping, it's $2-3 more than Deep Discount. I guess I thought it was $19 at half off and it's actually $24 + $5-6 shipping. Now I feel dumb dumb dumb dumb. But DDD gets the order at $28 + free shipping..

    do you pay tax with DD? I do in CA, but I don't with Criterion - in fact that is about the last online purchase I can do these days without tax added.

    No tax. Barnes and Noble, because it has a brick and mortar presence, always charges local tax, but not DD. At least not yet for this state.

    when it comes down to a couple dollars, I'd rather give my $ direct to criterion, as well as if you buy lots of them, you earn $50 for every $500 you spend, which I hit during this sale. So between tax and free shipping it was well worth it for me on this sale, since I will also have less to catch up at the July sale, only 5 months worth lol
