Not impressed. Just looks like a normal Amazon sale items.

Nothing very interesting. Pearl Jam Twenty for $11 is decent, but do I really need another live Pearl Jam CD? Not really.

Especially considering there's a free one up on google music. 9/11/11 Toronto. (https://market.android.com/details?id=album-Bioag3esw4jpxaravuo6yycdj5e&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImFsYnVtLUJpb2FnM2VzdzRqcHhhcmF2dW82eXljZGo1ZSJd)

I might grab a couple of titles, but nothing is really that pressing.

There's some pretty good box set prices on there.

If you like live Pearl Jam, 3 shows, 7 discs, 100 tracks for $18.99 on Wed. Nov. 23 is tempting:

Thanks for posting. I've already bought a lot of these as MP3 deals :) but there are a few that I've been holding out for a better price like Katy Perry.

Thanks for sharing. Nothing too interesting, but I'll be checking Amazon regularly.

Is there a limit to how many you can buy? I want to buy the PJ box set for myself and as a gift.

i take it those are cd prices, and not putting the mp3 version of the album on sale?

There will no doubt be MP3 deals, though who knows about titles and prices. The music countdown page says "Check back on November 21 for Black Friday Week Deals, including CD Lightning Deals, big discounts on hit albums, and six superstar MP3 deals each day."

These are Lightning Deals, and the Lightning Deals terms say:

"Only one promotional discount is available per Lightning Deal customer."

Of course, you could always be 2 customers...

Nothing that's absolutely must have. I may be interested in the Bob Dylan Mono box set and Queen Volume 1 box set.

Nothing grabbing my attention either, unless those mystery titles turn out to be something spectacular.

The only real things of major interest to me (Springsteen box and Marley deluxe editions) I already own.

They'll probably have other stuff cheap during the week though. But honestly, if you collect CDs, practically every day is Black Friday on amazon, with marketplace sellers offering lots of catalog titles for $6-8 shipped for brand new copies.

It's not an Amazon deal, but I figured anyone looking for CD sales might check in here anyway.

As of this posting, you can get Taylor Swift - Speak Now World Tour: Live (CD/DVD) (Target Exclusive w/ Bonus Content) online (http://www.target.com/p/Taylor-Swift-World-Tour-Only-at-Target/-/A-13832473) for $9.99, excluding tax and shipping. Even factoring those in though it's still cheaper than anywhere else and you get bonus content.

Totally thought this was a pricing error this morning. This is going on my daughter's XMas list...and I will probably watch it even more than she will :).

Thanks for posting the Taylor Swift deal. My wife will love it and she is tough to buy for at x-mas. Nice little surprise she won't expect.

Do we know if the Taylor Swift deal is in store as well? I'll run down to Target at lunch and save the shipping.

Nope. It's not on sale there (but does come with a $5 GC, fwiw) and it's not on sale here any more either :sad:

Geez, I signed onto Amazon for Queen box set at 1:01pm and 100% already claimed it! I'm on the waiting list but I have no idea how that works on Amazon. Does anyone have experience with this? Am I getting a copy or is this Amazon's way of letting me down gently that I wont in on this deal?

Depends on when you got in. I've been on the waiting list and gotten the deal and also gotten rejected. Does it give you a % chance or something like that?

I picked up the Queen set on the waiting list. Logged in about 4 after the start and was shocked. I was accepted (check out button becomes yellow instead of grayed out) around 40 minutes later.

If amazon was a chick, this is like catching a 30 yard pass into the friend zone.

Awesome, thanks. I knew I should've waited before buying the new Dean Martin/Scarlett Johansson "duet" for my Christmas mix the other day. Oh, well. I'm only out $1.

Got the Onerepublic for $4.99. :up: Then it was sold out when I checked back, 12 minutes after the deal had started. My kid was asking for this the other day, and I just saved five bucks by waiting.

I got on the waitlist for the Colbie Caillat and my chances were rated POOR. I walked away from the computer then came back to see a popup asking if I wanted to check the deal, so I think I *might* have gotten it if I'd been paying attention, but by that time it was already expired and it wasn't a huge loss for me anyway.

Someone walked up to my desk just as I was about to get the Lauren Alaina lightning deal, then after that conversation the deal was claimed--argh! But I was #11 on the waitlist and managed to get it, though I had to go through the checkout process three times. Lots of problems this morning.

Thanks. I downloaded LMFAO's Sorry For Party Rocking CD for free with it! Still think I overpaid but I do like a few songs. :D
