I may be posting this in the wrong place, Mods, but will the B&N sale be happening in November? That flash sale seemed a bit later than usual.
There's contradicting info on the Reddit and other forums on the B&N sale; some people are saying they got info from their local stores that it starts the 3rd, others (notably people stating they are B&N employees) have said that it'll start on the 6th. My guess is that it's gonna technically start Monday, but other stores may roll out the sale prices during the weekend
Paging Therewolf for a final verdict

Criterion Channel subscribers are given a $10 voucher for the store, due to the 30% Holiday sale going on right now.

Not just subscribers but anyone they consider a "valued customer," like me who is not a Channel subscriber

Same here, also not a subscriber. Do these codes expire, or will they still be good til the next half-off sale?

If you preorder some things from the Criterion store, do they wait until all items from your order are in stock before they ship or do they ship as each item becomes available?

Typically, they ship all items in an order once the preorder item is in stock. However, if there is a delay in the release, they will usually send your order in two different shipments, which happened to me when Moonrise Kingdom kept getting delayed.

We're a little bit away from when we can happily contemplate the flash sale dates. Here is the recent history of the Winter flash sale.
Last year, the first flash sale was unusually late on March 21 (Tue).
Before that,
2022 Mar 9 (Tue)
2021 Feb 23 (Tue)
2020 Feb 25 (Tue)

This year's possibilities and the corresponding releases...
Feb 20- Nothing But a Man, Afire and The Heroic Trio/Executioners
Feb 27- The Roaring Twenties
March 5- None
March 12- The Devil and Daniel Webster and All the Beauty and the Bloodshed

The 12th is my guess

I think they’ll tie it with the Rohmer box on Tuesday. But I guess we’ll see!

My guess would be 2/20, because there’s both a big 4k double bill with crossover appeal to those who don’t always indulge in Criterion’s art house releases, and also there’s a Janus Contemporary title which also has wider appeal. October and November sales both had new Janus Contemporary titles included, although it would be a stretch to expect the trend going forward.

I didn't include the 13th because I don't remember it being that early but I could be wrong

The sale will be on Feb 20. Three releases and it's the only week in the history of the Criterion Collection that Paula Beer does a cover-girl imitation of Ivan Dixon's cover-boy.

Anyone know if it's going to be 50% of the SRP or the current price for each item?

50% off SRP, similar to how the Barnes and Noble sales operate.

I just received a $10 off coupon for Criterion Channel subscribers, so I'm guessing the Flash Sale will be this Tuesday. The only new release that day is The Roaring Twenties.

The Devil and Daniel Runner double-feature of my dreams will have to wait until the autumn sale.

Unfortunately Roaring Twenties is 2/27, so I guess I’ll be waiting another six months for it, Blast of Silence, and Daniel Webster.

Why would you need to wait for Blast of Silence if it’s been out since December?

Because it’s the only non-pre-order in my Criterion wishlist, so I wouldn’t reach the free-shipping threshold without adding Roaring Twenties (as well as Daniel Webster, so I guess I’m still stuck waiting a while…)

Quick question - I've got the Criterion Channel $10 voucher through email yesterday. But I've also got a $10 voucher for when my
Citizen Kane disc had to be replaced. Can I use both on the Criterion website when the flash sale happens?
