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

Right now it's cheaper to buy the two Star Wars trilogy sets instead of the complete trilogy, but is there a difference between them in terms of extras?

I think you'll be missing 1 of the bonus discs.

Are you sure, you'll only miss one disc? Right now, Amazon lists each of the trilogies as having three discs, whereas the complete thing contains nine discs (three of which are bonus discs).

You are correct. I got misled by bad info at bluray.com; haven't had that happen before so I don't look for it.

I'd like to get All-Star Superman, but it seems to be the current Kiss of the Spider Woman so I'm afraid to pull the trigger too early

You would be missing all 3 bonus feature discs.

Amazon pricing theory

I think Amazon has an automatic "mechanism" set up for pricing, that follows an algorithm to achieve a certain volume in sales per item. Then it adjusts the price to achieve that volume. So the more people buy, the higher the price, the fewer buy, the lower the price, within some limit of course. I think this because I see price adjustments on hot items several times an hour, even in the middle of the night. I have no proof for this theory.

Of course that is exactly what happens.

$34.49 isn't bad at all. Thanks for the heads-up on the coupon.

UPDATE $32.49. Noticed the $2 price drop.

I just bit on All-Star Superman. That should guarantee it will drop another dollar or two or three. You are all welcome.

So happy to finally scoop up Saving Private Ryan especially at that price. My Spielberg Blu-ray collection is all caught up now. Thanks Lizard!
