I think around $200 this time around. The most ever was between $500 and $600 during the 11/04 sale. That and the summer '05 sale were the only ones I ever spent a lot on. I didn't spend anything during the last sale, went minimal on the summer '04 sale and likewise during the 11/03 sale, when I didn't realize what a great deal it was.
Only about $400 this year. Spent around $2000 one sale. But now I pretty much have what I want for DVDs and I also get alot with those McDonald's Best Buy Bucks you get via mail when they have that in the fall.
Around $330 the first time. Bought lots of British TV series, such as The Saint and UFO Megasets and Fireball XL5, and a few Christmas gifts which I've forgotten about!
I remember when my wife saw me with the Saint set, and when I told her I'd paid only $89 for it, she got a bit upset as she'd bought it at full retail (which is $200) for Christmas and had to subsequently return it!
About $80 this time around and $100 during the last one. Had a hard time convincing myself to avoid blind buys and just go for quality DVDs that I knew I would watch again like Ran, Lady Snowblood 1&2, KOH 4-disk and the Sin City DC.
It looks like I spent 491.68. If I counted right, I'm getting 51 movies/music videos and 7 TV Season/Series Sets, so 58 total, for an average of 8.48 each.
Edit: Last time I spent 598.87 and I got 59 total between movies and TV sets, so at least I'm going down a bit. I also spent a bunch more just prior to the sale last time, or the damage might have been worse.
$87.73+$11.95 (shipping) - My second participation in this kind of sales.
Last time (Nov, 2005), my first time, I only spent $28.43+$8.95(shipping).
This way, I will have something to buy in this Nov, especially the just-released items.
This year I spent more than ever before, but I made a conscious decision in November to not buy any more DVDs or go to the theatre for movies I would end up seeing on DVD anyway. I also cut out all the movie channels from my cable package. Consider I spent $50 a month on the theatre, $75 on the movie channels, and $150 per month on buying DVDs at retail, and I actually came out saving $$ this time around.
