    B&N 50% Off The Criterion Collection - Online Only 12/13 through 12/16 (EDITED TO CORRECT DATES)

    And now for something somewhat different

    "For 4 days only, save on classic and contemporary films from The Criterion Collection of Blu-rays and DVDs. This offer is available online ONLY, through 12/16!"

    *Titles are not eligible for coupons during the Criterion Collection 50% off sale.

    Criterion Half Price Sale -- so far only a handful of items in the list, but I'm assuming this will expand.

    For folks that want one more chance to put a 'Pre" order in for the Bergman set this could be another chance to get it for $150

    With the Bergman set's second printing not due out until February, will the sale price stay locked in if ordered now?

    Yes. It would be somewhat illegal for them to take an order and raise the price afterwards.

    They could cancel everybody's order I guess and force you to reorder, but once you order you're locked into that price

    Thanks for the heads-up...

    Bummers though it's only online, not also in-store...

    Thanks again!

    FWIW, if anyone's interested, BlowItOutaHere on eBay has a handful Criterion BD (and DVD) boxsets on sale at better prices if you buy 3-plus and (especially if) apply today's eBay 15%-off coupon (code is PickUpSale):

    https://www.ebay.com/sme/blowitoutahere/Extra-20-off-3-items/so.html?_seedid=302135806197&_soffType=OrderSubTotalOffer&_soffid=5153422906&_trksid=p2047675.m2197&_nkw=criterion&Region%2520Code=Blu%252Dray%253A%2520A%2520%2528Americas%252C%2520Southeast%2520Asia%252E%252E%252E%2529

    I just went ahead and ordered a few of them (plus couple other boxsets like the Patlabor complete set and MIB Trilogy 4K set), that I missed out at local B&N stores -- yes, you can mix w/ other non-Criterion sets to satisfy the 3-plus criteria, including DVD sets if you really want.

    Note that not all of them will have better final sale price (compared to B&N sale + member's discount) despite the sale plus coupon, but most of them should, especially if sales tax makes a significant diff.

    BlowItOutaHere seems pretty reliable, and I've bought from them before w/ similar deal.

    PS: Note that the eBay coupon is actually good for anything in one order (upto $75 off)... although it's only 10%-off for tech items.
