    (I have Sisters Region B via Arrow) when I watch it I might see if the Criterion is worth the double dip ...

    Unrelated, but can anyone confirm if 20% off coupons are good for vinyl?

    95% sure they are fine for vinyl. Occasionally during some of the 10-15% off LP Weekends I've seen them block coupons, but most of the time and most of the sales, coupons have been allowed.

    I just tried a 15% and 20% online code for an LP and it applied without a problem.

    Niiiice! Kinda wish I had decided to go for that all along... but now, guess I'll have to wait a long while -- well, I suppose I probably won't have time to dig thru that boxset over the next few months anyway given my backlog plus all the other titles I've added (and more still to add) during this BF/CM spree. Hopefully, that set won't go OOP before the next sale... :P

    Enjoy!!!

    I just partied like it was 1999.

    My local B&N happened to have the four Criterion titles I was looking for in-stock, so I got in the ol' car, drove down, and visited a store I hadn't been to in...probably over a decade. I came out with the four titles, plus George R.R. Martin's new "prequel" to Song of Ice and Fire (better known to the HBO viewing community as Game of Thrones). So that's why we don't have the last book (and last season of GoT). Because he's been working on this massive tome this whole time! ;)

    Anyway, it felt kind of refreshing and old-school to actually go to a brick and mortar store and walk away with physical materials including, gasp, a print book. Felt like, as Indiana Jones would say, "I belong in a museum!". :rolling-smiley:

    I still a bit confused, but maybe I understand where I think you are going

    "Ends Sunday 12/16" and going "through Sunday 12/16" means the same thing to my reading though I guess some interpret that differently. I guess the first means it could end anytime on Sunday from 12:00:01amET to 11:59:59pm PT.
    Even through the end of Sunday is a bit hard since BN doesn't seem to consistently use ET or PT for end times and sometimes it'll slide out to Hawaii

    Didn't take any chances and ordered the one Criterion title tonight I decided I couldn't pass up at that price: The Princess Bride. I wanted to get it earlier this year during the last 50% off sale, but my local B&N didn't have any in stock. I wasn't even aware of this recent sale until I read this forum. Thanks to everyone for informing me about this so I could finally get this classic for my collection! :thumbs-up-smiley:
