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

300: The Complete Experience (Blu-ray Book and BD-Live) $21.49
12 Monkeys $10.99
American Gangster $9.49

300 is on sale at Best Buy for $19.99, so this Amazon drop makes it a wash if you aren't charged tax.

I've noticed a few of this week's releases were delayed until April. Machine Girl and Dementia 13 have been pushed back to April 19 and The Terror is now set for April 26.

If your going to buy 300 you best off to buy this one. 300 (Limited Collector's Edition + Digital Copy) (2008) Ya its the DVD I know. It's $3.00 more (300?) and you get more with it. In ether case the Digital Copy will not work (Code is dead). Or just get the $10 one. It's the same other then the DC.

John Adams BD is now 26.49 at Amazon. I assume that's to "match" Best Buy's 24.99 price.

Thanks for the reminder. I went on Amazon chat and got my five bucks back as well for Tangled. $16.99 is the price for this deal for us early orderers.

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

I just got off a live chat regarding the "$5 off two titles" promotion. I was told that it had expired. The CSR was kind enough to deduct $5 off the total for me though.

They had to go and do this, didn't they...and I just bought a bunch of cheap Blu-rays from amazon over the weekend. I have four packages of stuff due to arrive tomorrow and Wednesday from them.

I have a little slush fund I tap for things like this...but unfortunately I need to tap about half of it for repairs on my car this month. Should I take out $25 more and double dip on this baby?

Decisions, decisions.

EDIT: Well, I ordered it. I'm just a complete nature documentary junkie, and I couldn't resist. The shipping status went from in stock to backorder while I was placing the order. No problem...I can wait.

Also, if you click on the link the price now comes up $52.99. The price has NOT gone up. The $52.99 price is for copies from a third party seller, where amazon handles the fulfillment. Those are in stock, but if you click under "New" in the third party listings, amazon's $24.99 price is the first option and you can place a backorder. Then you'll get it for $24.99 as soon as they get more in.

Actually, I think this happened once before. They had the promo and as soon as they added some really low-priced titles into the mix, said promo was expired lol.

The Blu-Ray single disc is the same as this one. Only your not paying for a useless disc (the code is dead). I have both and other then the sound its the same (only on one disc).

Kinda weird that Amazon matches Planet Earth for $24.99 but John Adams for $26.49. You'd think if they were factoring in some sales tax in it @ BB, both should cost $26.49. More than likely it's based on mystical settings in their proprietary stock-market-like price-determining software rather than anything to do with matching $24.99 + sales tax.
