Looks like ANT MAN 2 is the only one absent, for now.
Not bad if you want one, but the 2 for £18 deal is also started today -- From 25 Feb. 2019 to 24 Mar. 2019.
Amazon Amazon

Also on Zavvi -- https://www.zavvi.com/offers/marvel-multi-buy/3d.list
In the past shipping costs were substantially better at Zavvi, but over teh last couple years that advantage as slipped and Zavvi appears to doing £3.99 flat rate shipping PLUS Zavvi is adding US Sales tax to many states now.
For one pair - amazon is better, but 2 pair or more Zavvi wins


Also the 2D 2 for £15 has started.
Amazon appears to still only allowing one discount per order so if you are ordering 4/6/8/10 the Zavvi certainly is cheaper.

Being in the worst sales tax state in the USA, I can tell you that as of last week, Amazon.UK was NOT adding sales tax. If you order "Amazon global" through the USA site, they do add the tax. The way to avoid it for now is to order direct from whatever country is selling what you want.

Never order other direct anyway -- virtually never is cheaper using the Global version.
Never known AmazonUK to add tax anywhere outside the EU. Zavvi apparently owns quite a few US businesses and distribution center for non media and US based call centers so I'm assuming that's why they have to follow different rules even when shipping from outside the US

Wa state has been so aggressive about sales tax that nothing would surprise me. We were the first state that anyone without a physical presence was forced to collect tax in, due to our wonderful Governor's law suits.

Re: International Blu-ray deals

A bunch of Disney 3D titles have dropped to £12 each, including newer releases INCREDIBLES 2 and SOLO. Doesn’t seem to be a two-fer at the moment, but a similar recent price drop on the Marvel 3D quickly became the 2/£18 deal discussed here earlier.

Re: International Blu-ray deals

Just stocked up! That’s one of the better 3D deals in a while. Mind you, I had all but three of those already, so it was easy to limit myself. 🙂

It has the best 3D out of any Disney/Pixar film thus far.

Re: International Blu-ray deals

Question, I'm guessing you can't do the Marvel and the Disney deal on one order from either retailer? As far as I can tell, both look like they are not applying the full discount correctly.

Probably not. I did a cart of 14 Disney titles. Amazon only applied the "3 for 25" discount once, to the 3 most expensive titles. Zavvi applied the discount 4 times, but didn't apply the "2 for 18" discount for the remaining 2 items. I ended up taking 2 out of the order and doing a separate order to get the "2 for 18" discount.

Also, Amazon UK wouldn't let me checkout with the animated Beauty and the Beast 3D Blu-ray. Zavvi let me do it fine.

Certain combinations have been working on Zavvi.
A 2 for 18 Disney and a 2 for 18 Marvel will work
A Disney 2/15, 2/18 nad Marvel 2/18 will work, but if you add a 3rd title trying for a 3/20 or 3/25 it's messing things up
This appears to be a glitch adn someone on Bluray.com contacted Zavvi and 'they're working on it"

Amazon allows a single promo of each type per order. I got a Disney 3/20 3/25. and a Marvel 2/15, 2/18, 2/30 all in one cart, but no multiples

Zavvi allows multiples of a single promo, but trying to combine diffeent promos seems to be confusing it's checkout.

Re: International Blu-ray deals

It looks like Zavvi fixed the issue. I'm showing both discounts in my cart now. I'm hoping to finalize everything and place the order today.

British Pound Tumbles, Reflecting Economic Concerns in U.K. The pound has been sliding during the last few weeks, but on Tuesday, July 9th it slipped about 0.5 percent, falling to $1.24, its lowest level in two years. Start shopping.

Re: International Blu-ray deals

The Arrow UK release of Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye is less than $13 shipped from Amazon UK. I almost bought this the other day at $20 shipped, but $13 is a steal, so I ordered.

This disc IS region coded, so don't bother unless you're region free.

Re: International Blu-ray deals

Purchased the UK James Bond collection set with Digital codes on Prime Day and received it two days ago. The digital code for 23 films is still valid and is validated as such on foxredeem.com (using Hola VPN for U.K) But the redemption process takes you from foxredeem to googleplay where it can be added to your library. And googleplay doesn't play well at all with Hola (free vpn version) saying code isn't valid for the country (USA).

Any helpful tips would be appreciated. TIA

You'll likely have to use another VPN, if it works at all. We are now in the post-UV era.

Thanks. The set arrived the evening of 7/31, so couldn't redeem it by then. Hola VPN Plus says it works for googleplay but I believe google still validates the account based on the country where the google account has been setup. You can modify it once but only once per year. And outside of googleplay, Fox U.K does not offer any redeeming retailer for that code. So, unless I establish another google account in the U.K and use Hola VPN Plus, I might be SOL..and even then, it won't be in the same library. Gotta research alternative VPNs

Re: International Blu-ray deals

I don't know how they'd do for your purpose, but I've had good luck with PIA for $40 per year. I've never had a reason to try faking a country; as all my means of online payment are USA based & that will usually trip country specific licensing.

Re: International Blu-ray deals

The Criterion versions of "It Happened One Night" and "Shampoo" are £8.32 each after removal of VAT plus £4.07 shipping if you order both to the US on Amazon.co.uk. With the pound down verses the dollar shop these deals now.
Criterions from the UK are Region B locked usually.
