Also The Untouchables complete series (~$33 w/store pickup - Amazon followed a while but bailed out when WM went that low). There were a few others that saved ~$50 over the "normal" prices. The Monday after Mother's Day both were back to mostly the original prices. Since then they've been doing it with other titles/products on a somewhat sporadic basis.
Can only guess what madness will prevail upon the upcoming 'Prime Day' event....if Walmart's keen on taking Amazon to the cleaners

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

This is getting very annoying with Amazon repricing items every day. Ordering, cancelling, reordering. I chose slowest shipping, not for the $5 pantry discount but to make sure I can cancel the item each time the price goes down .

Nothing new, is it?

I know that Amazon's prices have been fluctuating for years now. More than once I've put something in my cart and had the price change minutes later while I was looking for other items to hit free shipping.

Shit, just a couple of weeks ago I clicked buy on a a "buy it now" auction on eBay and the price had jumped up by about $9 on the checkout page. It was an auction I had been watching and when I decided to buy it I went to the auction page that showed the price at about $40, and in the three seconds between opening the page and clicking the buy it now button, it had gone up to just under $50. Seems really fishy, dunno if it's some kind of scam gaming the eBay system or just an unfortunate coincidence. I didn't confirm my purchase and didn't buy the item.

I ran into that recently with (of all things) some crackers I really wanted. I had no idea they were on sale until the price jumped by 25%

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

I have reordered and canceled 2 blu rays about 4 times over the last 2 days as every time I check the prices have gone down.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on Bad Day at Black Rock so I wouldn't keep getting notifications in my shopping cart about it shifting a few pennies.

Why. Amazon charges the lowest price up until it ships.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Finally bit on:
Valley of Gwangi (WAC) - $10.27
World without End (WAC) - $11.06
Bad Day at Black Rock (WAC) - $11.10
Ladyhawke (WAC) - $12.42
The Thing (Shout Factory) - $13.81

$31 with Rewards and some remaining GC. Can definitely live with these prices and didn't want to risk it anymore given 'Miami Vice' went back up by $12

Most certainly confident of scoring 'They Live by Night' for around $15.xx during the upcoming B&N sale, hence passed on it. But if the price wars were to continue, will bite around the $16 price range

As laidbacklarkin said, only on pre-orders.

It's ridiculous, but you have to keep checking the price and cancelling/re-ordering until it actually ships.

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

https://www.amazon.com/Streets-of-Fi...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Damn, Streets of Fire is now down to $14.76

Man, I bought it release week for $19.49. I don't regret buying it, it's a great and jam packed set. Worth the money IMO. But, this is an anomaly. These Shout discs rarely drop in price like this only 1 month after it's been out. I can't see it dropping much more. It will eventually go back up.

It's also one of the Walmart sale items (currently at $14.46) that Amazon's been chasing for a few days now, so I suspect when Walmart's goes back up, so will Amazon's.

Looks like Amazon dropped the pursuit on Angry Red Planet. It's back up to $17.98, while it's dropped even further at Walmart, to $12.75 (after I locked in at $13.01, of course)

I discovered on a recent pre-order at WM that they now offer price protection on pre-orders. Two box sets I'd pre-ordered dropped in price and within hours I had emails from them indicating the lower price - which was automatically applied to my orders. One I'd cancelled and re-ordered before that email and the new order got the further price reductions before it shipped.

Both were shipped to the house as they didn't offer a pickup discount large enough to bother with, but that one on ARP is superb!

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Bad Day At Black Rock $10.88
They Live By Night $16.89
Justice League Unlimited: The Complete Series $16.16

6/24 9:30 AM EDT Update "They Live By Night" jumped to $26.19. I guess $16.89 was it's lowest price for now.
Bad Day At Black Rock $10.66

Re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Also keep an eye on The Beatles' Eight Days a Week - Deluxe edition by Ron Howard. That has been dropping every so often in price as well and is at significant discount for Beatles' product.

Cancel my order again & re-ordered at the lower price of $13.61. It's a good thing I did not just wait for another price drop. The price now is $20.37.

It appears like the three WAC titles will settle finally at $10.27. BDABR is now that price, VOG is already at that price and WWE is at $10.84

Also, 'They Live by Night' (Criterion) is now $15.90...very tempting to bite but the game's exciting to play. At $15.40, it will be equivalent to B&N's price at 50% off + 10% off + 20% off. Think I will bite :-)
