Amazon has The Vampire Diaries Season 1 on blu-ray for $27.99 which is the cheapest I've seen it anywhere.

Ran back up to $15.49. Still a good price, but...

Tempted by that X-Files bundle but probably wouldn't rewatch enough.

FLCL: The Complete Series dropped a few bucks a week after the pre-order. I understand why the decrease happens, it just sucks when it does after you paid the pre-order price.

Hi Ken, here's the way I figure it:

I buy the $25 Kindle gift card at Best Buy using my $20 credit + $5 cash.

I buy the '33 KING KONG Blu at $25.99 from Amazon, using my $25 Kindle gift card + 99 cents cash. Free shipping over $25.

Total cost: $5.99

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

I don't understand this way of thinking. you still paid 25.99 regardless. the fact that 20 is in credit form is irrelevant. Simple math here people

But the credit is free money because it's already there.






Yeah I don't really believe that at all.

Yes it is. A lot of Paramount catalog Blus are OOP. You might be able to find Zodiac at your local Blockbuster as part of a 2 for $15 sale. I paid just over $11 for it used when it was still in print and going for $25-$30 brand new and don't regret it one bit.

Amazon takes cash now?
Thanks for the explanation. I didn't know about the Kindle GC's working on anything at Amazon. I may buy a few. Actually, I may buy $200 worth.

The Walking Dead BD is in my Quick Picks today for 21.84. I'm tempted but it's a little more than I'd normally spend for a 6 episode season. Still....

I watched the first episode last night and was pleasantly surprised. Consider it two or three full length zombie movies for just over 20 bucks and it will make it easier to pick it up.
