Got a few of my $6 titles. Interesting that I ended up buying two copies of Thomas Crown Affair and Amazon combined the orders into one box with two packing slips. Seems efficient.

They have done this on some of my orders recently. Things ordered at different times, came into stock at same time so all went into one box with multiple packing slips. Makes me think they are being "green" or cheap. Either one works for me.

Yup...I love amazon with a passion, but if you're in the market for these, this is where to get them. They're available at that price online too, so you can get them shipped if you don't have a store nearby. And $25 or higher orders get free shipping.

FYI, B&N has 5 of the individual Bond titles on sale for $6.99 each before coupon, with several 10%/15% coupons available. But you have to spend $25 to get free shipping, unless you're a member...

Are you talking about Amazon or BB? I know Amazon has free super saver shipping for $25+, but Best Buy does this as well???

Knowing Amazon, they will probably price match, then you could save on tax too. So you may not want to jump right away...

EDIT: They are Amazon's DOTW at $24.99, so maybe they won't after all... BB wins this round.

If you want the guaranteed X-Men movie cash I'd go with Best Buy. I've had issues in the past when (despite being advertised) I didn't get the disk that had the movie cash offer.

Yes, Best Buy has free shipping as long as your order contains movies and/or music and is over $25. It shows up on the top of the movies/TV shows home page on their site, and every search result in those categories.

EDIT: The fine print...

"Receive free standard shipping on a purchase of movies and/or music totaling $25 or more. If your order contains items from these categories only, your shipping charges will display as "FREE" in your cart.

"Minimum total purchase of $25 on movies and/or music required. Offer is void if the order includes items beyond the two specified categories. Free shipping offer is limited to items that can be sent using our standard shipping service, via UPS, the United States Postal Service (USPS), and other carriers. Offer excludes enhanced shipping options, such as expedited or express service."

Re: Amazon Discounts and Deals Thread #7 (is it #7? I'll pretend it is)

Amazon appears to be matching, or beating, some of the Best Buy prices that are on for this week.

Shawshank, for example, is "on sale" at BB for $14.99 (I seem to recall it was under $14 at amazon a few weeks ago), but amazon now has it for $11.99.

Anybody thinking of hitting BB should do some comparisons.

Depends on if you want it now; you know it is likely to get cheaper if you wait!

That's awesome that the True Blood S3 Blu-ray set has dropped to $35. I just traded in some unneeded DVD's for around that much to Amazon as well. I definitely can't wait to own the season (especially as I haven't even seen S3 yet)!
