I don't know that I'd call it "wrong" just incorrectly applied. Amazon no longer shows MSRP on product and when there's a price reduction they show the previous/regular price as "List Price." They started that a few months back with the theory being if no one knows the true MSRP they'll be more likely to make a purchase. It also makes price comparison far more difficult. Unfortunately, ccc uses what Amazon calls "List" in the product details even though it's incorrect. It really makes price research much more difficult. I certainly do more thorough research before jumping on a "deal" on Amazon these days.

Here's a NY Times article on the change.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Amazon stopped listing MSRP because their standard discount has gotten increasingly smaller over the years. People know they are overpaying when a movie is only 20% off list price.

Amazon doesn't seem to be applying the discount correctly. That's fine as I know Trolls will drop to $9.99 within the next several months.

Star Wars: The Complete Saga $58.49

For Trolls above, I think you have to buy one of the qualifying movies first, then they send you a coupon then you buy Trolls with the coupon. Not sure though.

This is tempting. Is that one of the lowest prices for the Star Wars Collection?

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary Blu with Digital HD is only $6.26 right now at Amazon. It's matching Wally as it turns out but I refuse to shop at Wally...so I'll wait the 2 days .

According to camelx3 it is the lowest ever, at Amazon anyway.
Also, I noticed Walmart has it for same price so Amazon is matching.

This seemed like a good price so I finally bit on Star Wars.

Possible solution -- order at Walmart.com for free store delivery and see if they'll PM at Amazon. Saves the $4 shipping though can;t do much the the sales tax though Amazon going to charge that anyway

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Good idea. I also may buy one of 2 expensive home items I need but haven't been able to afford to make the $35 (they would put me way over $35 unfortunately).

Amazon is opening 2 physical grocery stores fairly close to me. Hopefully they'll expand to carry (or at least pick up) all merchandise. The gas may be cheaper than the postage (SAD)!

I'm concerned that rising shipping costs from all the carriers are going to harm internet sales; & if we do get an internet sales tax that many states have wanted for years, that will also make net shopping less affordable.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

You might as well get used to the idea of paying an internet sales tax. They finally got Amazon to start taxing purchases from Oklahoma, so it shouldn't be long for your state to follow along.

Alabama started this past November. It has seriously curbed my purchases at Amazon.

I'm In Wa. Been paying Sales tax to Amazon from day 1, which is why I usually try to avoid Amazon, Best Buy, Target & Warner.

As current USA law stands sales tax is only required if the actual seller has an actual physical presence in a sales tax state.

What I hate is when they collect the sales tax, but the item actually ships from a different state - that doesn't seem quite fair....

Happens all the time from Amazon, BBY, Target, Walmart.

As long as I'm paying sales tax to my state and not another state coffers I guess it's OK. I kind of like my Police, Fire, Streets, Ambulances, Schools, etc though I guess that opens a whole different can of bannable worms so I've leave it there

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

There are five states that do not have a sales tax:

Alaska.
Delaware.
Montana.
New Hampshire.
Oregon.

I spend lots of time in California.And do not buy much from Amazon.Tax is part of the reason and just not finding many deals.

Even when I'm home in Oregon.I'm buying way less from Amazon then years ago.
I buy more from Ebay and UK bicycle shops for my bike parts.
