There are supposed to be some 15/20% coupons by email sent out next week active for 7/3 through 7/6 instore -- usually those arrive on Thursday morning though with the Friday holiday there's a chance they could send then Wednesday instead.

Then there are always the New Member coupons $5off $50 Total Purchase and the ambiguous $8off40 single item which reside over on Laser Movies DVDTalk forum

Hopefully the Mods can change the title of the thread when the dates are more concrete though the 7/1 -- 7/28 is the widely reported sales date online including a picture of the Signage.

YMMV; During the last sale my B&N wouldn't apply additional coupon discounts to the Criterions.

That's always disturbing to hear when some stores do things so differently than others even in the same city.
The really odd thing is when different stores POS computer seem to react differently when a coupon is scanned -- one store it
will automatically apply it, other store it will Beep/Reject and the nicer clerks will manually enter it, soem stores
won't add the coupon if the Computer won't accept it. It's really bad when the clerks won't even attempt to scan a coupon and categorically deny it even if the POS computer might OK it (rarely even run into this personally, but certainly many people have).

The same policy variation shows upwith different managers in the same store and different clerks on different shifts. Luckily
I've always had pretty good success at most of my local stores though over the years I now have a few clerks who
recognize me and I know how they process items -- with the exception of the $8off coupon that
I've rarely been allowed to use.

I have run into multiple variations of how to use coupons:
1 coupon per transaction period, but will do multiple independent transactions
1 unique ID coupon per item, but will do multiple items per purchase.
1 Coupon per visit to store.
Will allow 1 coupon per item, but only 1 type coupon per transaction even if coupons have unique ID (1 15%, 1 20%,
1 $5off, etc)

Gentlemen, start your engines.

 

The sale begins today (6/30) online, and tomorrow in the stores.

For those members (or trial members) who need/want to order online and don't have local stores
that are coupon friendly or you just don't want to go there.

There are a few coupons that seem to be currently active. These Don't work on preorders however.

The New Member codes from the link in Post 4 seems to work for now. Normally BN will block these
coupons from Online Criterions so I don't know how long this will work.

There does seem to be a 10% item coupon that works -- i think it's a member only, but it
looks like a single use per account code   J3P4X4Y

The $5off50 definitely works.

The $8off40 item coupon will work, but only is a single item is at least $40 pretax in your cart. In
store folks know this sometimes works a bit differently

I see it conveniently ends one day before The Big Chill comes out on July 29. I guess that can wait until November. A Hard  Day's Night is up for now.

There always seems to be that last item though last July BN got permission to release Devils Backbone a week early so it would

fall within the sale  and then extended the sale a week on top of that  --  so there is hope. 

  It looks like they're extending the sale  week on the front end this year so we;ll see what happens near the end.

All the current new member codes are in the link in Post 4 which goes to the most comprehensive site I know for BN coupons.

 

Specifically the $5off50 code is  T9B8A9J  and expires 8/24.  You have to be a member to use the code however, but it's easy enough

to add a Free 60 day Trial membership during checkout if you're not already a member.   It gives full member privileges and as long as you cancel

by day 59 you don't have to pay the  $25 annual fee.

The bluray of blue is the warmest color is normally 24.99 an unusual price for criterion. What it means is if you buy it and three titles regularly priced 29.99 after the 50% discount and the 10% member discount the price at the register is 51.73 which is the best deal you can get with criterions with the 5 off 50 coupon. That makes it 46.73 for four titles plus tax.

That is the only Criterion BD with that price that I'm aware.   The strong rumors are that Criterion will be releasing an upgraded

version in the fall with extended scenes and a lot more extras, but for $10 it's almost a no brainer just to buy this one now

and upgrade/sell the original when the Dlx version shows up.    At least that's my plan since I bought it a couple weeks ago cheap

And don't forget, last November they extended the sale at the last minute to include the release date of the massive Zatoichi set - I think Criterion even sent out an email advertising the fact. I know many of us picked that bad boy up at 50% off. So I'd say the odds are good that Big Chill will get pulled into the sale.


Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

For those that are interested, the online sale still is allowing coupons.   No way to know if this is temporary or a new policy for this sale.   It's been a couple years since they allowed full discount codes to be used online for more than few hours.

 

I do have some extra 15% off codes (single item,  one time use, expires 7/7 at 2:59 am Eastern)  if any HTF members here need some.   These are nonmember codes and anyone can use them whether they are a member or not  and are online or in-store eligible.    Pre-orders not eligible.

Just send me a PM and let me know what you can use

Anyone know why The Night Of The Hunter Blu-ray/DVD combo has an MSRP of $50? I thought the original Blu-ray-only release was $40.

Excellent sale and nice that recently released titles such as A Hard Day's Night and All That Heaven Allows are included. I agree with some of the other posters on the Forum that the colors are a bit oversaturated in parts of All That Heaven Allows, but overall a wonderful job by Criterion.
