Same with me. I really wanted to like it. I thought the trailer was great. It just didn't really do anything for me. Still need to watch the extended cut though.

LoTR EE Trilogy was $39.99 at Fry's around Black Friday timeframe, so it's possible that Amazon may go that low someday.

re: Amazon Blu-ray Discounts and Deals Thread #27

I ordered the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo for $9.99 but I received what looks like just a Blu-ray.

There are no idications on the packing that the DVD is included.

Anyone else run into this?

There was no slipcover either, so I am wondering if the DVD is only listed on the slipcover.

I'm planning on returning it so I don't want to open it.

I just got a copy from Best Buy and while there was no indication the DVD was included, it was there. You should be able to feel the packaging to tell if there are two discs in it. There should be two holes on either side of the case in the same spot where it holds the discs. If you only feel one on the back, then there's probably only one disc.

Same thing happened to me for Hall Pass. I opened it and it wasn't the combo pack. I emailed them and they were gonna refund me and to send it back because I guess the combo pack is out of print and when I emailed them back, they told me they'd refund me and I didnt have to send it back.

I jumped on this at first on bestbuy.com but then changed my order to Amazon. If I could have grabbed this in the store today I would have but I'll save on the tax and get it in a few days. Thanks for the heads up!

That's an excellent deal - roughly $30.50 per season, with superb transfers and oodles of extras.

I was wondering why they did not do that in the 1st place. Sure $153 is nice on the books. But from what I have been reading most people have Seasons 1/2/3. I would be in for two of them, but the full price is a little to much being I would not be watching it for sometime. BTW how come they did not put this onsale last week?

I think they did it today to coincide with the Twilight Zone New Year's marathon on SyFy.

$30.00 for each is a good price. I just order this. I already have Seasons 1 and 5. I should be able to sell those two sets. The main reason I bought S5 before 2 or 3, was because I wanted the episode "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge", which is an Oscar Winning Live Short.

Great answer. I found an old thread that showed they had TZ in the Gold Box last 1/1 as well.

I'm kinda glad after BF. By the end of the month, though I'll be itching to start buying again.

Dances with Wolves now $12.99.

I remember a lot of nice price drops around last New Year's. So far this year, not too much outside of the usual daily smattering. Amazon, I've got lots of Christmas cash sitting here waiting to drop. You are welcome to take it; just roll out a nice quantity of discounts. I'm watching your competition as well...
