Again, I'd be happy to keep non-sale discussions in a separate thread if someone wants to make the Official Amazon General (Non-Sale) Discussion Thread and link to it here. I'm not going to do it because nobody will probably ever post in it.
Well that's an outright lie because you just said that you would.

Re: "Let Me In" BD at Amazon

As you can see I adjusted the phrasing in my previous response, -yes, a promotion was applied to the $19.99 price, though it doesn't say what it's for. Thanks to the original poster, by the way, - I hope this holds up, and I just wonder if the "promotion" works with any other title.

I ordered LET ME IN on blu-ray by itself for $19.99 and somehow got a $10 promotional credit, making it $9.99. I can't figure out what the promotion could've been, though. Any clues?
Did you add the Coinstar $10 code to your account? That counts as a promotional code... That's the only thing I can think of...

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

I just figured out what must have happened, -at least in my situation:

A few months back I bought a Roku box, and with it I recieved a $10 credit for Amazon Video On Demand. I was thinking about using it the other day and the credit had disappeared. I called Customer Service and they told me there was an expiration date on the credit that I wasn't aware of. I didn't gripe or complain but the CSR very kindly restored the credit, -this time with a something like a nine-year expiration.

You can guess what happened, -it turns out the CSR gave me a general credit for $10 and when I placed the order for "Let Me In", I activated that credit (I checked my video account and it doesn't show the $10). In my case, the "Let Me In" order was just a coincidence, though it did tip me to $10 that I can apply to anything, which is far more useful to me than a video credit. I'm sorry if I helped confuse anybody, but I'm glad to have the information.

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

I can say that neither of those things happened for me.

I did have a preorder for Let Me In from when it was a gold box ($1.20 off) that I cancelled and then immediately reordered for the lower $19.99 price... and for some bizarre reason, it gave me a $10 off promotional credit. No clue why. I'm not one to really email customer service and they only time I've ever gotten actual credits issued was for their huge preorder mix-ups with Dead Rising 2, but those credits are looong gone. So no clue. >_>

I actually had a $10 promotional credit applied yesterday when I purchased Arkham Asylum for PS3. I hadn't purchased a Roku, any digital media... Not sure why I got it either... But I'm not complaining...

There was a thread on it somewhere. They do this every year in December. When you redeem in $40 in cash coins for an Amazon cert in a Coinstar machine, they send you a bonus $10 Amazon promotional code.

Thanks for the tip.

In cleaning out my "Recommendations" I found this:

Megamind (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
Blu-ray ~ Will Ferrell (February 25, 2011)

Recommended because you added Mesrine: Killer Instinct: Part 1 [Blu-ray] to your Shopping Cart


Makes one wonder about the algorithm Amazon uses.

I got a surprise $10 discount too on a different item. I think mine was from a promotion they had starting in November where if you purchased $75 or more worth of toys from a Holiday list with a MasterCard you'd get $10 off sometime after the promotion ended. I had recently called CS because I'd gotten no notification of that discount and they tried to tell me I wasn't eligible for it, but gave me a $10 credit to my CC anyways. I know 100% that I was eligible for it, so this may have been it.

I agree. I recently sold my DVD copy for $15 so I'm biting on this price.

Yes, I hope they lower the Blow Out pre-order to that before release, something that I must own on day 1.

Tempted by the two Super Bowl sets, even though I don't need them or anything. But the Saints and Steelers are two teams that I've enjoyed seeing win.
