Beauty and the Beast 3D and The Lion King 3D $8.00 coupons via Amazon.com

Amazon.com is offering $8.00 off of the 3D Blu Ray combo packs for Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King on Blu Ray.

The eight disc version of The Lion King which includes The Lion King, the sequel, and 1 1/2 is also included in this deal.

Currently the price is as follows:

The Lion King Four Disc $36.99
The Lion King Eight Disc $74.99
Beauty and the Beast Five Disc $34.99

Just received an email about the coupons this morning, so YMMV as they may not be available to everyone.

Link works for me.. Just not sure if I wanna drop that kinda cash on the Lion King Trilogy or Four Disc, or wait to see for a Bluray/DVD pack instead.

Thanks OP.

There will be a standard BD/DVD combo pack as well (check links in upper right of page). Some discount on that may emerge closer to release date.

This is a movie I enjoy, but it's not among my absolute Disney favorites so the simple combo pack will do for me.

It say's it's an 8 disc combo pack on that page.

Wow, I guess the other one actually is 8 discs. That's a lot of Lion King.

Placed an order for the Lion King trilogy, it's easy enough to cancel if I end up not wanting it

This is what I did as well. I placed an order for the two different Lion King's, and B&TB. These Amazon coupons are touch and go, so it's best to order now and cancel later.

Why are these now in 3D besides marketing? I ask since they never were before....

The Lion King (Two-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray / DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging) $29.99 (No, it doesn't seem to qualify for the coupon.)

I'm getting sick of Disney and Amazon only pushing 3D releases with coupons. If you read the text in the email it makes it seem like you should be able to get the $8 towards the regular one too, but it doesnt show in the product page.

"Plus, save $8 on "The Lion King," "The Lion King Trilogy," and on "Beauty and the Beast (Blu-ray 3D Combo)" if you qualify for the Disney coupons. Make sure you are signed into your account to view the Disney Coupon Book. Both coupons expire on April 30, 2011."

The only one it specifically lists as the 3D combo is B&B.

Pre-ordered TLK 3D Combo.. based on the prices of Tangled and Tron 3D, this could drop to 24.99ish by release date. Taking $8 off that for a Disney 3D movie is nice. For it to be the Lion King is that much more amazing.

And if a better price shows up elsewhere, then I'll cancel.

Re: Beauty and the Beast 3D and The Lion King 3D $8.00 coupons via Amazon.com

because of the bad wording and writing Amazon an email I was able to get $8 off my next order which I will probably just apply to the Lion King 2 disc version anyways.

What bad wording and how does that justify you asking for an $8 discount on something else?

I ordered the 4 disc, but for some reason the links are crossed between the 4-disc and 8-disc. I had to select the 8-disc to order the 4-disc. Anyone else have that issue?

I wrote Amazon about the email this morning to see if I could get the $8 applied to the 2 disc bluray since the wording in it does not specifically say the Lion King box set or 3d versions are the only ones it applies to. I also mentioned that right below the coupon offer are images of the 2 disc and DVD alongside the box set and 3D version. The only disc that says 3D combo is Beauty and the Beast, which says this within the quotation marks making it seem as if it was part of the title and not with the others.

I politely tasked if this could be applied to the 2 disc version if I pre-order it. They wrote back saying they would credit my account $8 on my next order, I did not ask for it that way, that is how they came back to me. I will be pre-ordering the Lion King 2 disc so it's not like I'm trying to screw them out of money, I just thought the email was misleading and asked them about it.

Beauty and the Beast 3D has had a 3D theatrical release in various markets around the world in the last year, it was suppose to be released in theatres here last year but delayed till this year for 20th Anniversary. It will now be released for a limited 2 week engagement in select theatres early August prior to its 3D BD release.

Lion King 3D also was among the first movies to have select scenes converted for 3D digital back when real D was in its earliest testing stages.
my work was the first theatre in the country to be equiped with real d and i remember watching at the wildabeast stamped in 3D back in 2005 when Real D was making its entry into the market.
SO i imagine that they decided that since work was allready completed on some scenes why not finish converting the whole movie.

Preordered tonight with the coupons. I figured that I can always cancel if I hear or see a better price closer to release date.

I noticed that the coupon I used has disappeared from the line up, leaving the other two choices still available. Are you signed into your account? Maybe they don't have you on the list for the coupons?

To subsidize the cost of this for me I plan on taking the 3D bluray disc out the new B&B set and putting it in my Ironpack case, and selling off the remaining discs from the new set.
I love my Iron pack case to much especially with all the autographs i have on it, to part with it.

The way i read it, I understood it was for the 3D combo and not for the non 3D combo. Not sure how anyone would read into it any other way.
as for B&B why would they push for the 2D combo to have 8.00 off when the 2D combo released last year allready came with a coupon promo
