Criterion Sale

For the last two years (at least) Criterion has had a "Flash Sale" of 50% off full retail prices
near the end of February. Last year it was on Feb. 25, the year before on the 26th.

So, clean up those wish lists, etc., just in case.

Deepdiscount.com has a 15 percent off sale for Cyber Monday enter code Click15 - and they usually have the best prices online and only require a $25 purchase for free postage.

Tip - If you don't see a title under dvd look it up under "all products" - I've found several dvds there that don't pull up when specificially looking for dvds for some reason, usually smaller company titles. They also have several made-on-demand titles at lower prices than at those sites.

Not in stock at the moment, but you can order it and wait:

$115.49 at Amazon, 61% off. It's not on the main page, but it's at the top of the link below:

The Ultimate Buster Keaton Collection [14-Disc Blu-ray Box Set]
http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/ ... 701&sr=8-1" target="_blank

Temporarily out of stock. Order now and we'll deliver when available. We'll e-mail you with an estimated delivery date as soon as we have more information. Your credit card will not be charged until we ship the item.

This is a great bargain for those who have not already purchased a lot of the Kino Buster Keaton blu-rays (such as me).
One of the reviews is very helpful and will answer a lot of questions.

I got an e-mail last night from Grapevine advertising a Grapevine March Madness Sale. The sale does not apply to DVD's issued in 2016. The sale is for purchasing two or more DVD's issued prior to 2016 and you get 50% off. Glad for that recent thread of Grapevine Gems. I can use this sale to start chipping away at the suggestions I got. :-)

Sale ends 31 March.

Not sure if this has been posted here or not, but All-Day Entertainment's 3-DVD set American Slapstick Vol. 2 is priced to clear at $5. I just got one last week, and have already blazed my way through the first disc, which includes a number of early Harold Lloyd shorts, some of Hal Roach's lesser-known players and a batch of Educational Pictures shorts. Quality ranges from good to very good to excellent, with shorts by Snub Pollard, Lloyd Hamilton, Syd Chaplin, Larry Semon (with Babe Hardy) and Alice Howell as well as Lloyd.
