Default Barnes and Noble July 2016 Criterion 50% off sale

It's that time of year again for the Barnes and Noble 50% off Criterion sale! Runs today through August 1st.

I picked up Dr. Stangelove and Ikiru today, and will be getting The New World at the end of the month.

Thanks. Was trying to guess when this would be. Have seen dates as late as July 12th.

Just snagged Dr. Strangelove, Carnival of Souls and Easy Rider.

Wish I could have pre-ordered Cat People, Blood Simple and McCabe and Mrs. Miller as well.

Why couldn't you?

My Barnes had shit in stock, I'm very surprised. Usually they are pretty good. I picked up just Fantastic Planet.

Since this runs until Aug 1 I will keep checking back.

Visit retailmenot for other codes.
Was I lucky or is there a specific item in your cart?

I think you were lucky. I tried adding only a couple of the same movies you had and I got the not valid message as well. Nice score there, though!

edit: It works after all. I noticed you have to have a minimum of $60 in merchandise (not including pre-orders, so The New World was not counting towards my minimum even though it gets a discount).
