re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Okay, Hansel & Gretel has to be worth 10 bucks. I want the Wizards book as well, but I do have the region free import which is the same disc I believe (just not a pretty book though ).

The first 10mins of H&G are worth a few bucks. The rest. Not so much.

Forever Marilyn Collection used, like new from Amazon Warehouse Deals $14.55

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...condition=used

They have over 200, so they're probably new and trying to get rid of their stock.

Actually I did rather enjoy Gretel's fully automatic cross-bow.

I think so.

I got just a used blu copy at family video a while back when it was more expensive. I would have gotten it at this price.

A guilty pleasure movie.

The Universal Hitchcock films that are not in the Essential set are between $15 to $17 each. I guess we can call it the Non Essential Hitchcock,
http://www.amazon.com/b/ref=amb_link...d_i=2901953011

The Essential Hitckcock is still available for about $38.

The only reason I passed on this is because they are still releasing more Marilyn Monroe films on Blu-ray. And I really like the coverarts of the individual releases.

re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Don't know if people are aware there's apparently a trick that most people are successful using to get a Prime subscription for $59 instead of $79. Amazon will probably kill the loophole soon. I'm very tempted by this, but I've gotten so accustomed to PM'ing Amazon deals at Target or BB and not ordering from Amazon unless it's an expensive item meeting free shipping all by itself, I'm not sure how much I'd actually use this. I know there's a free Prime video library, but I don't have time to dig through it now (have to go to another 10 hour day of work) so I don't know if it is even comparable to Netflix's library. Ugh. I can barely justify $7.99 per month for Netflix's limited selection. Wish I knew how the libraries compared. Can you even find a significant number of movies made in the last 1-5 years on either streaming service or is it mainly the direct-to-video or stuff that didn't do well at the box office? Someone help convince me it's worth $59 before Amazon closes the loophole.

Prime is worth it if you spend at least several hundred a year at Amazon, over dozens of transactions. Anything less and its utility is highly questionable.

It's no replacement for Netflix. Amazon's streaming works more as an adjunct.

re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

THE MALTESE FALCON has been reduced to $9.96, but currently listed as OOS and will ship when available. I locked it in as I think that's the lowest it's ever been.

Thanks for the info. Well, at $59 I decided to try it. I doubt it'll work out to my advantage because I don't buy that much, but so many people have suggested it I'll see what happens over the course of the year, and now I'll check out their free Prime movie selection so I can see all the movies listed that I'll never have time to watch. Funny how a $20 discount can make enough difference to make me cave in.

Speaking of which, could someone 'splain to me what the "add-on items" are? What I heard is certain random misc. items are exempted from Amazon Prime for no particularly logical reason and Amazon decided to call them "add-on items". Is that right? I haven't seen one yet but I suppose it'll be obvious when I do that it doesn't qualify for Prime.

The add on items showed up a few months ago... they are mostly ultra low price items, usually less that $4, that amazon says are only available for sale on the site because of this newly created add on program. In order for them to ship for free, they must be attached to a purchase of $25 (maybe now $35 that they raised the limit) even for prime members.

This has upset many people because the main benefit of prime is free 2 day shipping on everything, amazon contends that these items were never available and would never be available without the add on program.

That being said the type of items i have seen as add ons are all little connectors, screws, washers / bolts, touch up paint, trim kits... things that are super small... never a media product or an electronic.

It's generally little, light, inexpensive things that aren't cost-efficient for Amazon to ship on their own via Prime.

For example, a single roll of Scotch tape: http://www.amazon.com/Scotch-Magic-T...dp/B00005C3YY/

They'll ship things like this to you via Amazon Prime, but your order has to include $25 worth of other stuff shipped from Amazon. (So, you can't get $25 worth of stuff from a third-party shipper and have it count.)

Not to pick on you, but why exactly did you sign up for Prime just to complain about its uselessness to you?

re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray

I think the problem with Amazon is that they need to push Prime as a payment plan of $7 a month - its like car payments. While people that cannot afford a $30K car are standing there in the dealership, the dealer tries his best to make them forget about that tag and talk about a very affordable monthly payment. At $7 a month, Amazon may have more people biting into the Prime program than with the yearly cost.

At $7 a month, it represents great value with Amazon Video and if you purchase a quite often. The psychological aspect of not having a minimum to worry about works successfully in making you order more often and not store cart items into the wishlist. I am sold on Prime - b/w Amazon and Costco, I don't have to go anywhere else for anything. Its a great gas saver too

I see the logic, but they'd never do a month to month no commitment plan. Too many people would only buy it a few months a year.

I consider myself a heavy Amazon Prime user. I order stuff almost every week, and watch videos most months. But i have several months a year where I don't have more than one order under $35, or don't need to watch their videos; so I'd pick and choose the months with mathematical precision, costing them at least half the money they get from me.

I could see them charging $7 a month with a year commitment, but in doubt many would think that a big difference.

Amazon was selling Raging Bull yesterday on Blu-ray for $3.99. Hope some of you got in on that. I scooped up Almost Famous: The Bootleg Cut for $5.99.
