Good deals, but not as good as BOGO, and ZODIAC is not included.
Thanks for the post anyway

I don't know what "the ocean" you're referring to is, but the BR version of Serenity: Southern Seas has been reviewed here (http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=31769&___rd=1). Likely they're pretty much identical.

I would wait for the fire sale when the last 2 major studios drop the format for Blu-ray and the format goes by the way of Betamax.

You may be waiting a while. I would expect that there will be a series of sales, price reductions, etc. designed to skim the various price levels of the market.

If you are talking about the HDScape titles I bought the sampler right after I got my HD-A2 and was frankly underwhelmed. I liked the idea but found the picture to be less than I had hoped. Perhaps I am spoiled by the far superior Planet Earth series. JMHO

Must wait for the "get rid of HD-Dvd" B1G1 sale!!! :brickwl2:

If they had those prices AND a B1G1 free sale, I'd probably get a couple. Going to wait for that one... But thanks for posting the link.

If you bought any of these titles during one of the recent B1G1F sales, you can get Amazon to issue you a refund. Did this for Casino and Backdraft ($19.95 -> $14.99).

Yep. Just don't buy titles you can get on HD DVD.

I'm still waiting for a BOGO on HD DVD as well.

I know this is dumb, but how do you go about getting a refund. I'm feeling quite lazy today...

I know this is dumb, but how do you go about getting a refund. I'm feeling quite lazy today...

I did this yesterday for about 290 in refunds. Trust me it works. Taken from SD.

1. Call amazon 1-800-201-7575.
2. Press 7.
3. Listen for a CSR with an accent. If no accent, hangup. Go back to step 1.
4. Tell CSR your order number.
5. CSR will ask for your name, email and billing address.
6. Tell CSR that so and so item has dropped in price to whatever amount.
7. CSR will give you the refund. You don't need to send your receipt or anything that sort.
8. Hangup. Your refund will go back on your method of payment within 2-3 biz days.

There is a thread on SD about this. Not sure if I am allowed to link. Also works on several Blu-ray titles.

3. Listen for a CSR with an accent. If no accent, hangup. Go back to step 1.So... one gets better results from an accented CSR (likely from India) than an non-accented one (likely from Oregon)?

You can always email. Saves you the hassle of calling and getting an operator who doesnt understand you. :)

You'd have to ask the person that originally posted it on SD. My guess? Uninformed offshore help desk.

I just e-mailed them and they refunded me. Did it for 2 orders. No need to listen for an accent. LOL.

Trading Places for $14.99 - Jamie Lee Curtis topless in Hidef - priceless ;).

I might have to turn in my man card, but I'm still on the fence, but I would've jumped on it if it were BOGO.

To get a refund on both BOGO titles: apparently offshore CSR's don't always realize one of the titles was free and will often give you a refund on both if they've dropped. If you don't care about that (or only one dropped), any CSR will do, I believe.

I got my price difference refunds on many of my purchases including the free titles from both my HD and Blu ray from the B1G1F sales. .....and the customer service rep did have an accent... I think they were oriental and not indian....either way I got the refunds just as the sale was ending...so my last 4 titles didn't make it in...but I still saved a boatload. ...Thanks everyone!

This sale looks like it has ended. Perhaps now we'll get another B1G1F.

You do realize Amazon has a 30 day price guarantee... it doesn't matter who you talk to, if the price is lower on their site within 30 days of order they will refund the difference. Did this twice on the A3 HD-DVD Player when the price kept dropping.... each time had a non-accented American customer assistant.
Now maybe your trying to get refunds outside the window, so you going with your method.

i emailed them and they gave me a refund of $9.91 for casino and serenity
total of 37.99 for Hot Fuzz, Serenity, Big Lebowski and Casino

This sale looks like it has ended. Yeppers. Too bad for me, too. I have Casino and Stardust in my cart right now, but I held off on pulling the trigger since Stardust was going to be a blind buy.

I used a promo coupon this very morning to get a "free" one-night DVD rental from the Kroger Red Box -esque kiosk machine and I have Stardust SD sitting in my car right now. I was going to watch it tonight... if I liked it enough to want to own it for $22+ in HD, I would have done so. If not, I was going to throw a pair of $11 earbuds into my cart (that I've been looking at for a few days) to get to $25 for free shipping.

Of course the sale expired this morning. Oh well, you snooze, you lose. :rolleyes:

Tolhurst
01-18-08, 05:50 PM
to be honest, you'll probably get another chance at a cheaper Stardust
