As silly as the humidor editon is, I'm buying the UK version. It's only about $70 US. And it comes with a green card!

I believe the UK Universal releases are region free. I have the Bourne trilogy and that is region free.

Cheaper to just buy the box, and cigars to go in it (Unless I missed something?). Staying with my $5.99 Amazon Gold Box or LD? then again maybe they did clean up the f words a little better (how many times is it used?)

Hay those are fun, best money (ammo) and fastest you ever spent. Try a mini guy (T2, P1) 5,000 rounds gone in less time then it took you to read this.

Thanks for your comments. These weren't intended to be the absolute best deals from all stores, just ones that I found were good on Amazon, on my "to buy" list, and close (or cheaper) then other stores.

For example -- I hate Walmart -- if it's within $1 I'll get it from Amazon.

The purpose of this thread is to get the best deals of not only all stores, but also the best deals that Amazon has ever offered. Amazon prices fluctuate sometimes even during a single day. We want to catch them at their lowest. It requires discipline and patience. We want to optimize the deals for our budgets, not necessarily Amazon's.

OK. I've removed all of them.

The point is you should remove them from your Amazon Cart, or cancel the orders, then wait until they drop the prices to become real deals. Then jump on them.

At $22.49 now... to be released on Apr 26
http://www.amazon.com/Adventureland-...1761853&sr=1-9

It looks the same to me as this:
http://www.amazon.com/Adventureland-...1761853&sr=1-3

Which is now at $20.99.

It looks like this Adventureland is part of the Lionsgate re-release:

Probably true, but waiting for the absolute cheapest price does have its downside. Such as Zodiac, for example. :P
