And either the tracker is off, or no one has bought it in the 28 minutes it's been the lightning deal. Way too high.

I'd swear I've seen it lower on Amazon..but maybe I got confused w/ the DVD set.
Actually the lowest price for The Godfather - The Coppola Restoration Giftset was $41.99 on 12/2/2008 and it was around $45 several times up until about 6 months ago. Just set the range of time to "one year" or "all" in camelcamelcamel to see.

Re: Amazon Discounts and Deals Thread #7 (is it #7? I'll pretend it is)

Those $7.49 BD titles appear to be what BB has for $5.99 in store or online. You'd think if Amazon were pricematching BB and including tax, they'd be closer to $6.49 rather than $7.49 which still gives BB the better deal. I already have several of them on BD and the ones I only have on DVD would have to be under $5 before I think about upgrading. Even at $5 I decided I can't afford to upgrade most of my DVDs to BD because there are too many. It's a case by case basis.

For those debating the Godfather Coppola Restoration Trilogy, if you can wait I suggest doing so. Waiting for <= $10 per movie in a set seems like a reasonable strategy for me, and even that price may be too high given the prices on things like the BTTF trilogy.

I got GF 1 & 2 from CH as enrollment titles, so now am just waiting for an eventual release of GF3... I want to average under $10 each as well...

I thought that amazon would get around to truly matching best buy on a number of blus today. I guess not.

You know, as I typed my post, I thought to myself "wait, was #3 released separately? Sure, it must have been!" DOH! That figures... I have amended my post.

You won't regret it. Despite the raves I was hesitant to watch until AMC re-ran the episodes from all three seasons earlier this year. Now I can't wait until season four starts in July.

You should have used the $5 coupon on both of those and they would have only been $9.99 each.

There are other threads on DVDTalk you know.

Mentioned all over the forum and in a thread of it's own, BestBuy has a coupon, $5 off any DVD/BD $14.99 and above.

Re: Amazon Discounts and Deals Thread #7 (is it #7? I'll pretend it is)

Eh. I wasn't going to create another fiasco for myself with the coupon. Looked like it was for in-store only and not online purchases.

Last time I reserved all 4 X-men movies a few weeks ago...they pulled the DVD Versions for me and were oblivious to what just happened. Needless to say I had to call customer service, get them re-ordered, shipping refunded, and shipped to my house. Picking up shit at the stores is becoming a joke now, as well as a waste of gas money.

So, the $14.99 price is on-line only?

Got The Book of Eli for $7.99 and was shocked to see I was sent the combo pack. I was going to buy it at Walmart for $10 but they didn't have the combo there so I took a chance at AMAZON.

I think it's region free. On amazon uk it's about $30.

Has anyone else gotten the combo pack of The Book of Eli when ordering the single disc edition from Amazon? If I knew others were getting the combo pack (not that I'd ever watch the DVD but it's nice to have just in case) and it wasn't just a fluke, I'd probably order from Amazon and return my single disc one to Target, plus I'd save a little tax.
