    I'll post this in anticipation of the Sale following normal rules

    Barnes & Noble 40% Off MSRP Blu-ray excludes Disney/Marvel/Lucas (EDIT Criterions appear to be 40% online)
    Tuesday Dec 19 through end of business Sunday Dec 24

    1) Should include all Blu-rays in-store except the excluded categories -- DVDs are usually not included in the Dec Sale. Movie, TV Sets, and 4KUHD are usually eligible. Some Music items including a LP or CD with Blu-ray are classified as Music and aren't normally included. In-store also includes items available for ship to home. There are a few studios and items classified at Web Only which function as 3rd Party and aren't included though there aren't many in this group

    2) Online -- usually about 2/3 of items are included. Some studios like Warner Archives rarely are included online (I think there were 3 or 4 items last year), but are discounted for the store generated ship to home orders. Newer release items often are excluded as well.

    3) 10% Member discount apply in-store. Coupons both on-line and in-store have been mostly excluded the last couple sales, BUT NOT entirely so it's always worth a shot.

    The newest set of Coupons do not specifically exclude items in the 40% sale (YET) so we'll have to see how that works on Tuesday either online or instore

    40% prices are starting to show up unexpectedly including Criterions.

    Arrow Items are also 50% off

    Nolan 4K went OOS almost immediately after it went live for order. This set appears to be OOS are several websites and many people have gotten Delayed Shipping email so this may not come back into stock for the sale. Like the Twilight Zone zone last year the prodcution stock may be very sparse for the first few weeks though I guess there is some hope,

    Harry Potter 4K set is $86 with the 25% code.

    The Warner Archive films and TV Season Sets are 40% off but the only way to get them at 40% off is to go to the store and request ship to home. The stores do not carry them in stock and their website does not include them in the 40% off sale. However they are included if you order them from the cashier and request ship to home. With membership and the 25% off coupon I got Auntie Mame and the Superman 2 version film Warner Archive set for $8.90 each. IZombie Season 3 $16.19, Lucifer Season 2 $19.xx. Tax is extra. There is always the chance they will disable the coupon on the 40% off blu rays but it was working this morning. To use coupon on multiple items you have to place a separate order for each item. I came to store with multiple copies of coupon and they allowed me to place multiple orders. Some store may not allow this. Some stores may refuse the coupon on the 40% and 50% off items. Not sure about shipping cost if you are not a member. Members get free shipping.

    That;s my usual type order. it's the only way to really get those WAC TV sets for a low price, While the regular $22 movies do go on nice sales several times a year at various places the TV sets are rarely ever more than 20% off. The larger Xmas coupons also make this sale astounding for these sets.

    BN ship to home program is an astounding asset to use. My $25 Membership fee has been more than well worth it 20+x over with double member discounts 4 x this year, Free shipping on all order, plus just the regular 10% off most purchases.

    There appears to be a 25% Nonmember Coupon STORE ONLY available. BN Frontpage has a big banner that says "PRINT COUPON" which should mean a generic code, but the emails coming out not are Unique Id codes. I don;t see any new exclusions concerning MOVIES, but I'm not sure what's up right now. Once things clear out in the morning I will try to re-post in new details

    Members should be seeing a 30% Item for Store Use



    Not great but at least a small Whole cart code for online

    10% of $35-59.99 or 15% of $60 or more

    Thanks for posting this, David. I missed out on the 25% code, but the 20% code D4M8K3B still worked online. I was able to order the Harry Potter UHD set for about $85 plus tax (came to around $91 after tax and free shipping).

    Usually the last few days preChristmas the coupons are STORE Only to push traffic to the B&M.

    The instore coupons do work on the store computer generated SHIPTOHOME orders for those items not in store, but in stock at the warehouse. The STH orders also allow member discounts since it's considered an in-store purchase. Some stores will also take phone orders for ship to home though it can take a bit of time so try to call when you think the store might be settle down -- early morning or closer to closing at least for some stores

    I received a 30% off a single item in-store only coupon. I went to the store and ordered the Criterion BD set of 100 Years of Olympic Films. 40% off BDs; 10% off member's discount; 30% off coupon. I got the set down from SRP $399.99 to $151.19 pre-tax.

    If an item is showing "Temporarily Out of Stock Online" can a ship to home order still be placed in-store?

    It depends, but usually not. The Instore Warehouse stock and online stock overlaps considerably, but it's not 100%. SOmetimes I've had items OOS online that had 1-2 itmes in the warehouse that could be ordered. I've also had a couple items that were available online, but not as a ship to home.

    The ALLIANCE Distribution center that in the major supplier for BN must run some sort of dual inventory with some items availble to BN only and other inventory that is available to all their retailers.

    The only way to know for sure is have the employees look it up. The brand new items like the Nolan 4K's are so short supplied everywhere I would doubt they will be available at item. The same goes for the high demand items like HP Boxset, Twin Peaks are less likely though those items have been coming in and out of stock randomly through the week
