"Life" BR at B&N with David Attenborough - $30 + tax shipped (most cases)

Found this on Slickdeals. EDIT: link fixed. Thanks vballboy51.

Go here: http://btob.barnesandnoble.com/index.asp?r=1&btob=y

1. Select DVD & Blu-ray From Search drop-down menu
2. Search for 883929099252
3. Add to cart and proceed through checkout
4. At order review Page, click "Need to add a B&N Membership number or Coupon code?" link, and add coupon code GSA1020 (6/1 only -limit one per account)
5. Your total will be $30 + tax & with free shipping

Seems like a great deal and no Oprah narrative.

Coupon doesn't work.

Your order does not qualify for coupon GSA1020. You may remove it or replace it with another coupon.

If you still have problems then sign out, then sign up for a new account using a brand new email address.

You may need to use Firefox if you aren't already.

The link and code are still working as of right now.

Yeah, that worked. I used a two year old $25 B&N gift card to boot (I wasn't sure it would still work, but it does), so it ended up only costing me $7 with tax. Nice.

I used it successfully five minutes before your post, so coincidence if it cut off right then.

edit: in Firefox.

Re: "Life" BR at B&N with David Attenborough - $30 shipped (most cases)

Thanks OP! Had a $32 Staples gc that I needed to use and my total came to $31.98.

This will go great with my Planet Earth and now I can remove the $50 version my Amazon cart.

And..I noticed that they are now out of stock.

As mentioned in the B&N thread, it's rotten how the Oprah version has exclusive extras - deleted scenes, music only version, and an 11th episode "making of life". The Oprah version also has lower audio/video quality. Certainly no one here should go for the Oprah version, I'm just making sure you're aware of the exclusives so you get as irked as I am.

Ordered it earlier and with a gift card to boot. $0 out the door. Now I have to send back my copy from Amazon back which is arriving today.

Are the deleted scenes actual deleted scenes though, or is it just the additional footage the BBC version already contains (since it is my understanding that the US/Oprah episodes are shorter to make room for more commercials, as was the case with Planet Earth)?

Re: "Life" BR at B&N with David Attenborough - $30 shipped (most cases)

I'm not sure. This is from Blu-ray.com:

Finally, a batch of "Deleted Scenes" (Disc 4, HD, 18 minutes) serves up some memorable, series-worthy footage complete with finalized narration.
This is pretty good from CHUD:

Oprah Winfrey is a terrible narrator. She's not the worse narrator ever, but she has a voice that can be only described as a 9th grade ESL student desperately trying to recite the Gettysburg Address...Oprah understands that she has to pull the viewers into the action, but she finds this weird way of performing such actions. I'd go so far as to say that she turns into Brian Fellows.

It is back in stock again.

This looks like one of those cases where it's going to go from in stock to out of stock over and over again.

Meh, figures this price would come out after Amazon shipped mine. Eh, ill just have to try and see if I can get the better deal. Was surprised to see only the Oprah version in store at WM, BB and Target today. No signs of the BBC version.

Me too. Wonder if that's Oprah flexing her media control...
