Criterion collectors, did you miss out on that big 50% off sale that Barnes & Noble held last month? Or, did you buy big then, only to find that Criterion has released a couple of interesting titles in the meantime? Well, don’t fret, because Deep Discount is having its own sale on Criterion Collection discs that’s almost as good.
Now through September 1st, Deep Discount is holding a Back to School Sale that claims to offer a 45% discount (from MSRP) on “Over 450 Criterion Titles on DVD and Blu-ray.” If not quite as good as what Barnes & Noble offered, it’s close. And it’s certainly a lot better than the Criteiron prices you’ll find on Amazon these days. (Seriously, shortly after receiving notice of this sale, I also got a “Save on Criterion Collection New Releases” notice from Amazon, advertising barely 10-25% discounts.)
Unfortunately, Criterion’s next new title (‘Breathless‘) won’t be released until September 14th, after the end of this sale.
