Re: DVD deals of the year 2011

Barnes & Noble Groupon fiasco:

1. Groupon offers $20 Barnes & Noble gift cards for $10. Limit 1 per customer.
2. I buy 50+ using the Groupon app (one per city).
3. I buy $1500+ MSRP worth of Blu-rays, books, and music.
4. Groupon auto-refunds all but 1 of my vouchers (probably enforcing the 1 per customer rule).
5. I end up with $1500+ worth of stuff for $10.

I got in on lots of great deals this year but for me that ridiculous series of events won't be topped for a long time.

Edit: Stackable $10 for $20 Overstock.com codes were probably a close second. Shame few others seemed interested in that particular deal. I got a lot of Kino and Criterion Blu-rays for 70-80% off.

Re: DVD deals of the year 2011

Kudos to JR.com for these great buys:
Laurel & Hardy:the Essential Collection - $35.99
Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends:the Complete Collection - $19.99

From Warner Archive, bought The Falcon Mystery Movie Collection Vol.1 for $19.99(a pricing error which they honored).

My best deal personally was purchasing these box sets from a local liquidator at $5 a pop:
Ronald Reagan - the Signature Collection
Errol Flynn Adventures: TCM Spotlight
Film Noir Classic Collection Vol.5

Re: DVD deals of the year 2011

I haven't been shy about my disappointment with the changed DD, but they did come through with my best deal of the year: Doctor Who Complete S6 for $23 and change. I thought the price was a typo, but the set arrived a few days ago. Thanks DD. Best one-of-a-kind used deal from Half Price: Midsomer Murders Early Cases $40.

Yeah I would nominate that for "DVD deal of a lifetime", it's pretty awesome!

Re: DVD deals of the year 2011

My personal favorite DVD deals of the year are the Black Emanuelle box sets @ $19.99 each.
I LOVE the bonus CD discs of Nico Fidenco music and play them frequently!

How'd you get the Criterions that low. Lowest I saw was around 13-14 before tax?

And did I miss Rome??

Re: DVD deals of the year 2011

Is a "glitch/screwup/abuse" the same thing as a "deal"? In that case, my best Target deal was when they forgot to charge me for the 50$ bag dog food on the bottom of the cart, I should have stocked up on that deal and complained when they asked me to pay for it.

The couple legitimate deals that I got in that I thought were the best were:
Complete Bullwinkle
Reaper S1/S2 for 4 bucks each (I had never seen this show, it's hilarious)
Muppet bundle for 50 from Amazon
Pink Panther Ultimate for 35

I consider the CH bargains a deal because, unlike your dog food example, the CH glitch was available to anyone for a number of days. I was able to open 2 accounts over a period of 3 days or so. I picked a number of expensive box sets for .49 cents.

Re: DVD deals of the year 2011

While I'm not one that tries to abuse glitches, I could have gotten the Star Trek sets and more. I wasn't expecting to get it. Alot of my tv show boxsets "gets lost in transit" they resend and I still never get it.

But I did get alot of other deals
Batman Beyond Complete $38.49
Justice League Complete $42.99
According to Jim S2/3 $3.99 each
The Muppet bundle from Amazon about $42 got money off it using SavingStar website
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory $1.99

Criterions were that cheap during the 50% off sale if your store let you use the $8 off $40 coupons on them. I probably picked up close to 10 DVDs at that price also.

The Rome sale was part of the annual VIAAC sale which you can only buy from if your company is associated with them. I got a bunch of crazy good $4 movies on Blu as part of that sale, but Rome was the best.
