    Nice, but you can't get to any titles other than Rosemary's baby and two others. Seems like the search function is messed up.

    yeah, just saw this. my first thought was "oh shit, not again!" - these sales are always so devastating to my budget.

    Amazon is actually selling some of these titles for just a few dollars more so it's not that great of a sale. Let's go lower Amazon :lol:

    Is anyone else having trouble with their "shopping bag"? Every time I add a new movie, it erases the previous one that I put in there.

    Not to sound like a cheapskate, but I wish they still allowed coupons, or did a B2G1 like they did during the last sale. The closest store is about 3 hours away so I can't try my luck in-store (and there are about 10 stores within about an hour of that area, which makes sense :confused: ).

    I would definitely buy Rosemary's Baby at $19.99, but the shipping kills the deal. There's nothing else I want from Criterion at the moment (I've been stocking up over the past several sales).

    I wish they had some decent store coupons right now. All there is right now are a $5 off $50 and $8 Off a DVD/Blu-ray with a selling price of $40 or more.

    And they wouldn't be valid on this sale, but B&N really haven't even had any decent online coupons lately.

    That's the addiction intervention filter kicking in!

    No, mine is broken too. I can't search for things either, but I can add more than one to a cart...

    You do the search using google "Barnes and Noble (place title here)".

    I finally broke down a bought Seven Samurai and Night Of The Hunter on Blu. There were a few others I wanted but just before I saw that this sale was on, I sent out my Christmas list with those other movies on it. Can't risk doubles! :)

    btw the shopping bag worked fine for me.

    I work at B&N. The search and cart issues on the website are being caused by the issues in the home office in New York due the hurricane. It should be better very soon as we heard yesterday that the bulk of the offices would be open and tech staff would be returning to work. Btw, I managed to get Rosemary's Baby in store for $13. The 50% combined with a member card combined with one of the mystery coupons (worth 30%) that got emailed out the other day. Not a bad deal at all! This is my favorite of all the DVD sales we run, and it always seems to happen right when something I really want comes out.

    I placed a couple of orders (not Criterions) on Halloween with some of the mystery coupons they sent out — got the order completed confirmation page and everything, but never received any confirmation emails and they've still never shown up in my order history. And I never did get any authorization charges on the card I used.

    That's the first time I've had something like that happen, and I'm wondering if those orders even went through. It seems quite odd also since I placed another order yesterday, and that showed up right away and everything.

    I was in Barnes & Noble yesterday and they had the Carnival of Souls Criterion. That's the first time I've seen that in a store since I bought it five years ago.

    I would call 1-800-The-Book. Sounds like it might have gotten lost in the void.

    Held off on buying movies for the last couple of months, own too many discs I haven't watched already, but I couldn't resist picking up the new editions of Rashomon and Rosemary's Baby at 50% off.
