    CRITERION FLASH SALE Starting March 5, 2019 Noon ET
    Starting March 5, 2019 Noon ET Through approx Noon ET Wednesday MARCH 6, 2019


    From Criterions's Facebook Page

    Normally this is approx 24 hrs though it often ends up lasting a bit longer and doesn't always get off the mark exactly on time. Extensions have been anywhere from zero to to several hours depending on demand and if the server crashes enough times (Soccer Penalty Time). The extensions have been much shorter or nonexistent the last couple sales as their website has functioned better in general

    50% off MSRP (not current/Usual price) all in-stock movies -- DVD, BD, Includes Eclipse set, but not general merchandise

    Free Shipping at $50 in the Lower 48 US otherwise $6.95 flat rate shipping USPS or $8.95 UPS
    Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, PO Box, APO/FPO -- $6.95 Priority Mail

    International orders other than Canada
    Less than 4lbs -- WorldMail/CanadaPost 9.95 1st + 2.95ea added
    Over 4lbs -- DHL Express 19.95 1st + 3.95 each additional item
    Customs and Brokerage fees added by Delivery Service/Collected at Delivery and are the responsibility of the customer

    Sales Tax has been expanded and now required -- Alabama, California, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Washington and Washington D.C

    New releases included. Preorders almost never are allowed.
    Normally items go out of stock and backorders aren't taken, but the last few sales some items return to stock several times.

    Criterion Loyalty program -- $50Gift Cert for every cumulative purchase of $500 even if it takes 5 years. In the past those loyal rewards certs are sent via email almost immediately and are eligible for immediate use.

    If you are close to $500 and have enough total items, I'd suggest making an order just big enough to qualify for the Loyalty Cert plus FS, then make another $50+ order with the extra money rather than make one large order and then have to wait 6 months for the next flash sale though the GC/Rewards don;t expire. You can load them into your account and the $$$ will be there next sale.

    Typo fixed. I actually had prepared the post that thinking it would be last week and forgot to edit the end date.

    Fixed, sale is live, and really is running fast this time.

    I can attest to that. I had my cart ready by 10:59 and all the pricing changed at 11 a.m. so no problems checking out. I got a $50 certificate to apply next time.

    This is a great opportunity for folks to pick up Ingmar Bergman's Cinema at that great price Amazon was selling it for last year, and it's in stock.

    I picked up:

    Panique
    La Verite
    Yojimbo/Sanjuro

    I've been wavering over Berlin Alexanderplatz so much, that I figured that I'd better let it pass.

    Berlin Alexanderplatz is great! I picked it up this time. I first saw it when it was broadcast in 19xx. It was quite an experience.

    This is the best time to pick up the very expensive items since Criterion.com doesn't collect taxes in most states, and the big-ticket items, by definition, qualify for free shipping. If you have the interest and the funds for the Bergman set, now is the time. I got the first pressing and it is quite an impressive box (and contents).

    Picked up Notorious, Island of Lost Souls and Sex, Lies and Videotapes. Would have loved to get Detour, but it's only available for pre-order, so is not part of the sale.

    Got my shipped email about 8pm last night. Was getting a little worried since the charge on the CC was no longer pending yesterday & the 3 titles I ordered: In the Heat of the Night, Notorious & Paths of Glory were showing as backordered until later this month.
