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.
Stores (like Newbury Comics) also have used on-line sales but frankly I've never had a problem with any highly ranked Amazon marketplace vendor and with the number of vendors with 98+ ratings it would seem few do have problems. But to each his own.

That said, for NEW I think you've made a valid point - it doesn't appear The Simpsons have been lower for single sets.

DthRdrX: I think your order contains more Blu Rays than my local video store. Impressive.

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

DthRdX - that's quite the haul there. After doing some rough math in my head you made out pretty good considering what they would have cost at variou points during the year.

Did you save for this occassion? As in held off during the year, knowing that this week would get you the mother of all loads.

The UPS guy is gonna love you LOL

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

Regarding 'BTTF' and it's Gold Box Deal on Monday, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that they will have it for $26.99

You read it here folks

(this is just my wishful thinking, nothing more)

The average was around $9-$10 each. Not really bad at all. Every year I usually place a large BF order at Amazon. Sort of a tradition in my family! I've watched probably about 98-99% of my BF grabs the last two years.

I'm done for BF this year I think, unless Amazon drops the Lost set low enough on Friday. I'll wake up for that one.

BTW, I've done fairly well in the stock market, and I also got a really good job this past year. I've become used to having a big bill for BDs every month. It's easier on me than when I used to have a car payment/school bills.

The UPS guy probably already hates me anyway. My dad used to deliver mail locally for USPS, so I'm ok as long as I don't piss off our mailman who he is friends with.

I've heard mixed things about Australia, but one of my former college professors is actually friends with Nicole Kidman so I picked it up for him. Heard "The Happening" is terrible. Wanted to see it for myself.

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

Am I correct that when TV seasons go on sale (such as Smallville S9 or The Simpsons S20) that only the version listed (i.e. the DVD and not the Blu-Ray) gets a lightning sale price reduction? I did check the Smallville ones when they were active and saw no Blu-Ray editions for a little more, so I guess I've got to decide if I want the Simpsons DVD set for $12.99 or hold out for a future Blu-Ray deal. I think people said that the Simpsons don't benefit much from 1080p video (unlike your average computer animated movie), so maybe DVD is good enough for me...

That's a reasonable guess. With the B&N deal @ $27.99 + tax (assuming Amazon is aware of that), anything higher isn't going to seem that great, plus $29.99 would only be a few dollars off the current price (though I've seen some video game lightning deals that were $2 off a normally $19.99 price). Someone earlier said there's a up to 70% MSRP limit which I think placed $23.99 as the lowest it could be. $26.99 is right in the middle of those 2, and at that price I'd probably order from Amazon and return my B&N set (if B&N doesn't cancel it first). If Amazon is $28.99 or higher, then if my B&N order has shipped I'll pass on Amazon.

BTW, I've periodically checked for video game lightning deals and so far I've hardly seen any and the few I saw were crappy discounts. I thought last year there were a bunch of good console games in lightning deals for $10 or $15.

I wish they'd include some of the newer WB catalog titles like Maltese Falcon, Forbidden Planet and Sierra Madre.
