That's VERY tempting but with rumors of the B&N 50% off Criterion sale starting in a few days I'll have to let it pass. But I'm torn...

Zebra, considering that the list price is $49.95, the 50% off sale later would still work out to $25, not much diff. Thanks, OP. Ordered.

You're right. Didn't realize it was a higher MSRP. Does B&N online charge sales tax (I don't remember)? Amazon usually matches the B&N 50% sale (doesn't it?) so waiting a few days to get a slightly better price, not pay tax and get free shipping via Amazon might be worth the wait.

It is a very expensive Blu-ray month after all. Even a minor savings helps lighten the financial load.

Yes, they charge tax, but mine was still only $2.49 (and that is because Calif has about a high 10% tax rate here). Shipping is free. If I went in to B&N when they eventually have their sale, I would have to pay the tax, anyway. I would like it if Amazon had priced matched but since I don't know if they will (their price at the moment is $36.49), I decided to get it now.

You have to decide what is best for you.

Yes. And they even offer you a temporary free membership with the deal (but I couldn't get it because I was previously a member).

Just running through my options out loud. I went crazy on the July B&N sale (8 titles, incl. Che and The Leopard which which higher priced) and I think I have 4 titles I want for the upcoming sale: Seven Samurai and Paths of Glory with pre-orders for Modern Times and Night of the Hunter if B&N allows it (they allowed pre-orders in July). Don't remember if Amazon matched the pre-orders last time though.

If I'm regularly penny-wise then I can allow myself to be pound foolish on occasion.

Thanks for posting this. In for one at $27 shipped with tax.

I didn't get a temporary free membership offer though (never been a member either).
