They're hosted on AWS, so I wonder what the problem is. Anyway, I was finally able to place an order and got to use that $10 gift code they sent me a while back:

Site is still working well. Just placed a second order, this time for His Girl Friday, It Happened One Night, and Only Angels Have Wings.

Time to call it quits with this sale. :)

NEWSLETTER - OCTOBER 15, 2019

You may have noticed that we experienced some technical difficulties on Criterion.com. Well, we’re happy to report that the site is back up, which means that you can dive back into our Fall Flash Sale!

All in-stock Blu-rays and DVDs are 50% off SRP. No promo code needed.

Sorry for the interruption in your shopping—carry on!

PS: Please select your desired format (Blu-ray or DVD) when ordering as we can’t change or cancel orders once received. Note that we only ship within the United States and to Canada.

I have three on my wish list and only one has been released. So I'll pass this time.

I recognize that group from my wishlist -- everything released since the last B&N sale ended. I'm saving the 2 multi-sets to get at B&N. I'm not sure how well the Koker Digipacks will handle the shipping. I think I'd rather handpick those to sets and the Godzilla box

What a great sale. Wish I could. But there's always November.
BTW, The"Classic Hitchcock" boxed set is pictured, but is now marked as unavailable.
Does this mean its gone for good?

Godzilla @ B&N. I just ordered what I needed to complete my Criterion collection. Next stop, B&N to complete it once again.

Soccer Injury time appears to have started I guess to make up for the down time yesterday. 2 Extra hrs added to the sale

Countdown clock appears to be set for 2pm ET today


EDIT And it appears they added an extra 30 minutes so now 2:30pm ET is the presumed end

With so many FLASH sale titles marked as "unavailable", it became even easier for me to save.:P

Went through my wish list and see some of what I still want has entered backordered status, but that The Lady Eve is now only listed as a DVD with no mention of a Blu-Ray.

Does that likely mean it won't be restocked after selling out in this sale?

It was never released on Blu-ray. Am I misunderstanding your question.

Thanks Robert, that explains it.

I saw it while browsing the sale and added to my wish list since it was a movie I had been wanting to add to my collection. I didn't realize it was a DVD only offering.

I've gotten used to thinking of Criterion only as a Blu-Ray publisher these days since that seems to be all I've been buying from them lately. I forget at times all the fine movies they've brought out to the DVD format.

I placed an order before the site crashed. I received the discs yesterday. I placed a second order after the crash. Still waiting on that one to arrive.

The opposite for me as my second order after the crash came today while my first order early in the sale before the crash hasn't arrived yet. I expect it on Monday.
