Hmmmm ... I don't see it on wait list, rather 88% claimed as of the moment. Still, I agree with others, be patient and get a better deal.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

I've already got the complete original TZ on dvd, so it would have to be really cheap to upgrade to blu.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Can anyone offer any insight into the current workings of Amazon Prime? I just tried to place an order for an $8 blu-ray, and it tried to charge me $10 shipping. Then I tried to order an $115 set and it said 'Free Prime Shipping'. Err...

Is it the new rules going into effect, and the cracking down on Prime sharing.. or, given the second order, just something stupid, temporary and/or random?

Either way, it's irritating.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

What was the $8 Blu-ray? Are you sure it was shipped and sold by Amazon and not a marketplace seller?

Yeah.. Pitch Perfect. Really odd. Ordered exactly the same thing yesterday (decided to re-order and cancel than faff about asking them to match the - fairly noticeable - difference: 9.99 - 7.65 = $2.34), with no difficulty or oddity.

In related news, Pitch Perfect (Blu/DVD/Digital) is down to $7.65.

Well, good.

It's oddly reassuring to presume I'm not being singled out for punishment!

I really enjoyed the first and second seasons, but then Stuff intervened... one day I do want to get back to it, though, because it was very well done and interesting.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

The Harry Potter Hogwarts deal is a steal at $89.99. I bought it last year for $99.99 and thought that the price couldn't possibly go lower for so much content. It's pretty much everything you could possibly want out of that series of films packaged in a handsome, well-made package similar to the Bond 50 packaging—and they even threw in the UV copies... terrific. Anyone on the fence should go for it.

I finally bought the Lord of the Rings Extended Edition boxset today for $37.04. Yesterday I checked Best Buy on a hunch they had Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Series for sale and Amazon had simply matched. I was correct and grabbed that sucker up for $69.99 after applying the $5 Rewards—also like the fact that I earned additional points for getting it at Best Buy instead. Amazon got very few dollars from me this year.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Hannibal season 3 is now down to $14.44

That was good enough for me. So I pre-ordered it. Comes out on the 8th. Bummer it's the final season.

Bryan Fuller said on Twitter that there's over 12 hours of extras, so that makes it even more of a bargain.

Yeah it's a great series but I don't think $130 is that good of a price. I'd probably bite when it's hits $80 or so personally. These complete series sets seem to inevitably drop and I'm learning to wait them out in most cases.

Seems to be fixed. Wonder if they were hacked, overtaxed or just confused..?

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

It appears Amazon has gone back to offering the $5.99 pantry credit for no rush shipping instead of the $1 digital credit.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

In recent weeks, I've seen them go back and forth between the 2 credits with no rhyme or reason.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Just received my copy of the Scott Pilgrim steel book with a dent in the case. I have requested a replacement.

Check your cases for dents.

I'm giving up on these shipping credits anyway. I ordered some digital books yesterday (good sale). Amazon should have used the credits I had accrued but didn't in every case... not for the first time either. I'm tired of having to watch them like a hawk to keep accounts straight.

They've also shorted me on credits, disappeared some with no explanation and flatly refuswd to explain by e-mail (four times, form replies) and phone (three times, vague promises of follow-up).

But, free money is free money.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Camelot - Season One - $6.96

Maybe someone can enlighten me as to the differences between versions. It's this one (listed as 'multi format' with scant explanation), but there's at least one alternative that is described as "uncut". So, presumably this one is cut..?

Well, as "multi format" is appearing on more and more Amazon listings maybe someone could kindly explain exactly what it is?

Thanks, that may be one reason for the label.
However, I'm also looking at Falling Skies S4 and the blu-ray is listed at $37.96 and contains BD and digital HD UV. There is also a multi format listing with, as far as I can tell, exactly the same content for $14.96. This is confusing... but I guess I don't care as long as multi format plays on my region locked BD player.

Probably a bad data feed, and no one who cares enough to correct it.

I guess I'm lucky since I've never had them make a mistake with my digital credits (but I sure wish there was a separate account link that I could monitor to make sure). They don't accrue until the item ordered ships, but I presume that everyone knows that.

I do find that $5.99 pantry box credit annoying because the $1 digital credit is valuable to me. But when I first complained about it CS gave me a $5 digital credit and I've only been hit with three pantry box credits since, so I am still ahead, thus far. Can't complain... too much.

You have to make sure the ebook is sold by Amazon. If it's sold by the publisher the credits do not apply.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Mad Max Fury Road 3D is $16.81 at both Amazon and Walmart. I know this is a higher price point that Walmart's $9.96 BF sale, but this is the only 3D I really cared for but missed out during Walmart BF. Will be buying from Amazon though to get free shipping with Prime.
