Assume that means the Bergman collection will part of that then...
Since The Bergman Collection has a release date of November 20th - that falls squarely into that window.
Question will be - will you be able to get the discount immediately at the start of the sale, or will the discount only be in play if you order within the sale window but after November 20th?
I have never had this particular situatiin before, so can't say for sure....but, either way - it should be 50% discounted sometime within that time period (if not the entire period).

It's been a while since I ordered from B&N but my recollection is that anything released during the sale window is discounted, and that includes pre-orders. So, to answer your question (and if I'm right) then the Bergman set should be up for pre-order at the 50% sale price after the 2nd November.

Although, it should be noted that - if you were to order something that had a release date OUTSIDE the sale window (say, a release date of January 10) that would not get discounted. (It simply just gets pre ordered at regular price)

Yeah I don't think they have the same pre-ordering system as Amazon. You pay the price you pre-order at I think.

Yeah - during the sale period - you only get the 50% off for titles that are already released or titles that will be released within the sale window.
(i.e. any titles with a release date between November 2 - December 2)
