Another forum is reporting that this will be the DOTD at Best Buy on Monday for $39.99. Hopefully Amazon will match.

That'll make it worse than lightning deals because I won't know when the ones I want are going on sale, and I can't stay on the Internet checking constantly while at work Monday through Wednesday, so I'm more likely to miss those random deals than

Or is there any chance Amazon will match BB's BF prices at a predetermined time?

On what web site/URL do you check those? Not here because I don't think there's enough traffic? Surely you can't be searching everything on Amazon periodically. The only way I know is to check the headlines in Blu-Ray dot com or Slickdeals dot net.

Does camelcamelcamel scan Amazon often enough to catch price changes within a few minutes if I set up alerts? Probably not.

Actually, I prefer that they are going to be regular price match sales rather than lightning deals since I have to wake up early in the morning to catch those and they sell out pretty quick. To be honest, I think most of those Amazon.com price matches were on Thanksgiving and the Black Friday weekend. I'm not sure about that but I don't remember most of them occuring on the Monday-Wednesday week of Thanksgiving.

I use this, which can be configured via the drop-down to show all price drops or items at lowest price for the site only.

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/deals.php?country=usa

In fact, I use it year-round and it is also how lizard compiles his list of low prices, I believe.

Very weak sauce... Not one thing appeals to me on that list except, perhaps Ken Burns: Prohibition. Most of it is probably slow-moving backstock, except the occasional bone thrown in (eg, BRAVE). Seems to be mostly TV stuff... Still, all of it'll probablly sell out within seconds.

I know that last year Amazon did random/surprise PMs, but I seem to remember that they also added a few things to the schedule as the week went on, didn't they?

They did. I recall the calendar showing dvd versions of movies/shows and then the BD showing up on the calendar later. Hopefully the same happens this year.

Note the average is even cheaper when you order special features of the month. This month's feature for me was: Santa Paw's 2/Prep & Landing/Tigger Movie all for $43.95 shipped.
Thanks - I'll look into that. I thought when I checked a few months ago they didn't have any of those titles.

How did you find that link? I've been looking on Amazon's website for a while now and I can't find it there.

The original poster. Only now do I remember the quote button

Is the Black Friday lightning deal schedule just hidden on Amazon and the original poster just found it? I was looking a bit ago for it and I can't find it on Amazon's website, just here.

I was wondering the same. Seems that the section is hidden on amazon but the op found it or got the link somewhere else and posted it here.

The link was posted on Amazon's Facebook page. It would probably be posted on their website tomorrow.

Nice price on true blood s4. Hope other seasons go on sale, too.

Safe to say Thor and Capt. America on sale all day on Thurs or Fri?

I don't often go in for double-dips just for the sake of BD upgrade, but the Sherlock Holmes collection is a steal at the price.

I am keen on the MPI Sherlock Holmes Blu-ray set and the Ellery Queen DVD set myself. Both are excellent deals.

Saw Great Mouse Detective for $15 at Target today.

Same!

EDIT: I am reading some pretty bad reviews on Amazon about the HOLMES Blu set, but DVDBeaver and BluRay.com don't have real issues with it. So who is right? Does anyone here already own the set?

Mad Men was as much of a tradition as pumpkin pie

And now this tradition is DEAD. I'm a bit bummed myself, I was looking forward to paying $9.99 for season 5.
