Recently my pre-orders have taken a day or so to reflect the price drop.

Scott Pilgrim has also dropped to $9.99. I guess they are matching the BB sale. Robin Hood shold drop to the same price here soon.

Figure when I buy Scott Pilgrim it goes on sale. Well, I got it for sale also, but not as cheap. I got it for 14.99 a while back at target.

For 9.99 I might have to double dip on this one. I bought a preused dvd of it a few years ago. Or atleast the start of 2010.

I'm glad we can all pull together to (sort of) fill the void Lizard has left over the last few days

Good job team!

Yeah, they won't continually readjust your pre-order as the price shifts, but you'll get an auto-notify of the refund a day or two after it ships. Should be the lowest price between when you ordered and day of street.

Totally in at this price, and got the Cowboys and Aliens ticket as well.

Well put. Lizard must either have some special ability to post the new lows immediately after Amazon drops prices or else Lizard checks Amazon several times a day to ensure that none of us go too long without the knowledge of new lows. I had much respect for Lizard before, but I have even more respect now that I've attempted to partially fill the void he left.

Anyway, a few recent New Lows:

Robin Hood: $11.49

The Last Airbender: $15.99

Priest 3D (pre-order): $24.99

Whoops, I stand corrected by Amazon, who tells me that I actually have a ticket for "The Cowboys & Aliens.". Why stop there? Just go all out and call it "The Cowboys and the Aliens" or maybe "The Cowboys vs The Aliens."

Only $9.99 in store if you use the $5 coupon. This does require your BB to have it in stock though.

I still haven't seen 127 Hours and have been considering it for a blind buy for a while, and they keep tempting me with it! It had been so high for so long and now it's finally starting to fall in price. I wonder if it will go any lower ...

Yeah, rather than a paper coupon, they e-mailed me a code I could use to print out a coupon.

And to think I almost blew $12 on this thing with NO coupon when it was on sale a couple weeks ago.

It was a sorta smilar thing when I bought Hangover and Watchmen Directors cut ob blu ray and I got free tickets to see hangover II and Green Lantern. All I had to do was print out the coupon for it.

Do you have to enter into a code number to get the coupon or is that automatic?
