I was totally surprised about Simpsons. I didn't even think it was that amazing of a price these days, especially for a lightning deal.

With TV boxset prices in free fall (particularly with the pressure from used sales) that my take as well.

Re: Amazon Black Friday Sales Start Monday, November 22nd

I grabbed all 6 of simpsons but I dont get why season 6 through 12 is $12.99 ??? I am pretty sure i've seen amazon preview for all simpsons sets for $9.99 somewhere on this site. I might still grab the rest of them tomorrow but i really though I was going to get all seasons for $9.99. Weird.

Re: Amazon Black Friday Sales Start Monday, November 22nd

I don't understand the "waitlist". When does the discounted price show up? I had a small break yesterday so I went home to get Live free or Die Hard during the lightning sale. I was added to the waitlist, but I didn't see the discount so I didn't order. Does the price show up during checkout?

It means that they are sold out, but not everyone has completed their transaction. When you mouse over "what is a waitlist" this comes up:

Waitlists are formed when all available discounts for a deal have been added to customers' carts, but not all customers have checked out. As not every customer will check out in time to use the discount, Amazon can offer this deal to waiting customers. If you join the waitlist and the deal becomes available while you are still browsing amazon.com, we will notify you by showing an alert box in your browser.

I mentioned this earlier in the thead, but I got on a wait list and then got a pop-up later saying I had 2.5 minutes to add to my cart. I didn't get an e-mail, though--I happened to still have an amazon window open.

Re: Amazon Black Friday Sales Start Monday, November 22nd

The $0.50 price drop finally got me to pull the trigger on Fanboys.

EDIT: Cancelled and re-ordered from Wal-Mart for $6.50. I'm cheap.

Yeah you have to have the amazon window open otherwise you loose your spot on the wait list.

So on Monday, I wonder, is the price on BTTF going to go lower than $35?

Re: Amazon Black Friday Sales Start Monday, November 22nd

It's gonna have to go below $30 to beat the BN.com deal I got. If they do, I'll just return first one.

The chances are good since it's already $34.49. I would say it will be $30.00, if I had to guess.

Re: Amazon Black Friday Sales Start Monday, November 22nd

I just want to make sure I'm reading this properly-- will all of the Simpsons seasons listed go up for the discounted price right at 4:30 am PST tomorrow? Or will they be staggered throughout the time frame they have listed?

The discounts will all go live at once.

Re: Amazon Black Friday Sales Start Monday, November 22nd

Damn. That's all I can say. Should have seen this coming! No one to blame but myself I guess.

Placed HUGE order this morning before work. Amazon split the order into about 11 shipments/credit card transactions.

Went to Best Buy after work and my credit card was declined. Called up card company and they said Amazon triggered an alert because of how many times they charged my card this morning!

Honestly though, the lowest these have ever been is $9.99. I think they had them at that price a couple years ago during Black Friday. I haven't seen them go lower than $9.99 and considering that each season consists of 22-24 episodes it is a heck of a deal. I will be buying seasons 2-9 which will cost roughly $92 for 190 episodes of the Simpsons. That is a killer deal.

As with the pressure of used sales, I have never seen these for $9.99 used either. At least not in-store. Ordering used online can always be a crap shoot.
