I was contemplating getting anywhere between 2 and about 12 titles. Then I looked at my account, and realized how many titles I've bought in the last 12 years, that I still haven't watched, and didn't get anything.

Lately, I've been feeling a little overwhelmed by the sheer mass of stuff I have available to watch.

Anybody that bought The Princess Bride 4K/UHD during this flash sale needs to play it right away for the following reason:

"I'll be sending my 4K/UHD back to Criterion because I'm having multiple playback issues with several sequences having severe pixelation and freeze-ups. I won't be asking for another copy and will request a refund. There has to be a batch issue with this release."

I am in a similar situation right now. I have bought a lot of digital copies of films that I still haven't watched, plus we have some streaming subscriptions that will expire in a couple of months (free trials or cheap offers). Plus, it's both football and hockey season. I decided to pass on this sale -- the final decision point being that we are currently in SC, and I didn't want the order held at the Post Office for several weeks with the rest of our mail.

Rather than starting a new thread with at least a bit doubt on the date, I'll just bump the last thread and if the Mods want to generalize the title that might work too. This thread was pretty short so not like having to work through 20 pages and I think most of the OP T&C should be similar

Confirmed for Tuesday Feb 27, 2024 starting Noon ET

It’s that time again!

Because you’re a loyal Criterion Store shopper, we wanted you to be the first to know that our 24-hour Flash Sale starts tomorrow, February 27, at noon ET, and all in-stock discs will be 50% off SRP!


Same email also sent a $10 Cert and I'm not a streaming customer so not sure if b/c I ordered last sale or total $$ spent or ??? reason. I'm also $40 away from my next $50 cert so I'll figure out a combination of item to hit that then make a second order with the $50 cert


Double checked the FAQ and the only change I can see from October Sale is the UPS Shipped Price is now $15.95 (up from $10.95)

Unexpectedly easy. No crashes, no molasses slowdown

1st order allowed me to hit the $50 cert, email confirmation and Bons Code received immediately
2nd order allowed me to spend it. Order confirmation did take a couple minutes

I did note looking at my acct that the 1st order went almost directly to "Being Packed For Shipment"
2nd order switched from pending to Being Packed minutes later.
Alos usually my orders with more than 3-4 singles or heavier boxsets have been sent UPS, but both of these are USPS Ground Advantage

Easy-peasy. I picked up The Others, del Toro's Pinnochio, Blood Simple, and Lone Star, all 4K titles. I was able to stack two $10 codes and knock $20 off my order as well.

I got The Roaring Twenties, Blood Simple and Lone Star 4K/UHD plus Blast of Silence and Nothing but a Man Blu-rays using two $10 codes that knocked $20 off my order.

I received the email announcement of the sale just this morning (my time) as the sale was starting east coast time, and there are some who seem to have received a day before heads-up announcement. Would anyone posit a guess? Just out of curiosity.

For me there was two emails.One on Monday02/26/24 advising the sale would start at Noon Eastern Time "Tomorrow." with a $10.00 off code.

I ordered The Last Picture Show/Texasville UHD, Mean Streets UHD, Raging Bull UHD, and Parallax View BluRay. They gave me a
$10 credit, so it came to $95 and change, shipping included.
