    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).

    Sweet! You guys are awesome! It worked for me (you have to have $60 of non preorder items for it to work, but can include preorders beyond that). I scored:

    Jellyfish Eyes
    The New World
    The Complete Lady Snowblood
    Ikiru
    Gilda
    Carnival of Souls
    And one more I can't seem to recall right now lol

    Thanks a bunch jabba - the coupon code has been "cracked" lol. I guess all their coupons have some sort of conditions. Had not thought of minimum orders and in stocks vs preorders.

    Boston, just add a $15 title - the savings will pay for it.

    They really are bastards at B&N online.
    Because I used the Free Shipping option they held my entire order until the last item (New World) is released, then they go and ship it in FIVE different packages !!!
    I might understand to keep costs down that they wait until release date and send them all in the same package, but what they've done is simply penalize me for not paying money for shipping.

    Any takers out there want to bet how all 5 packages arrive? All the same day, 1 on 1 day,2 the next... etc?
