If you're going to adjust for inflation, why not also for the cost of materials, market conditions, etc.?

Back up now for the same price.

Like I said, I fully expect this to be one of Criterion's top sellers for 2018, but even I couldn't have guessed there would be websites outbidding one another for pre-orders at 54% off.


Which is still more expensive than a Criterion flash sale (counting points) or a B&N sale (with membership that is used enough that it negates the price).


?

$18.31 is less than $19.99, and even if you have Criterion.com gift certificates, you still pay $19.99 out of the certificate. Even the in-store Barnes and Noble member discount only gets you to $17.99, which is $0.32 cheaper, but is likely negated by making the trip to the store.

In any event, this could all be academic, as the Amazon listing is again inactive.

If you know that stuff, you're welcome to analyze further. I just did some quick research and used an online inflation calculator. :)

The Criterion points are effectively a 10% discount, as long as you aren’t a 1-off customer.

Due to no tax, the criterion sale is the cheapest for me, aside from occasional insane deals like Amazon did for Othello.
