Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
I got really tired of the threadcrapping in the previous thread, so here's a new one. For those of you who were posting actual Amazon sale prices in that thread, my thanks.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Background stuff for reference:

Link to previous thread.

Here are some links to various useful sites for tracking Amazon prices. Some of these have been suggested by numerous people over the last five threads. I list the earliest post of which I became aware. The ones I find most useful:

That link lists all recent price drops in order. The variant I prefer is this one: New Lowest Prices.

Amazon list sorted by size of discount

Another site, mentioned by several here, which is useful for checking price history is camelcamelcamel. A Google search will come up with a number of other sites that also specialize in tracking Amazon prices. An advantage of camelcamelcamel, and other such sites, is that you can look up the price history for things other than DVDs/BDs, for example, a Blu-ray Disc player, CD, book, and so forth.

That should be enough resources to get people started.


Newcomers, please don't be reticent about posting good Amazon deals that you happen across. Better a deal gets posted twice than not at all.

That other thread was becoming a disaster.

Could anyone give me a little more info on the Essential Eastwood set? I have all four of the films on DVD, but would upgrade to save shelf space if they really do come in one case and keep most/all of the extras.

Some carry over from the previous thread...

Best Buy has the individual seasons for $19.99 each.

BSG

Amazon has a couple of seasons at that price also.

I believe the only thing left from the series would be The Plan which can be had for under $10.

I would also keep an eye out on Amazon UK. They just had the series set as part of their lightning deals this past week.

Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series $19.99

This one has been bouncing up and down at a pace that is fast even for Amazon. It is currently on a down bounce...

A couple from the last thread:

Monster House 3D - $16.99 (ties previous low)
Brazil - $20.99

Fantastic price on the Brazil pre-order - with a $8 off coupon during the next presumed B & N sale, it would be $17 plus tax, but that's major YMMV and at least six months away.

The box looks to be about the thickness of two BD cases; you can get a better look at it at walmart.com.

I was unable to find any info on extras. The box does say "Hours of insightful extras on all titles!" I would guess that the discs are the same as the regular BD releases—including extras—just packaged in one box.

Thanks. I don't like to buy individual seasons when there's a box set available, but I'll wait for a $75 - $85 price on the complete set. I probably wouldn't get to it for another year or two anyway.

They need to match Season 6 at $19.99 since that's what Best Buy is selling that one at as well.

Yeah, I went ahead and threw a pre-order down for Brazil at that price. Can't flippin' wait. :up:

Knocked two more Criterions off the wish list by ordering 3 Women and Stagecoach for $17.99 each. This last day or so has been good for some deals on older catalog titles. I've been hoping for more of those.

Then went to B&N.com to use the 30% coupon before it expires, since I didn't get to a store this week to add to my Criterion purchases. Got Battle of Algiers for $17.49. Good stuff.

Dunno if this was mentioned in the other thread, but Modern Family S3 is 19.99, matching BB. My BB was sold out, so was glad to see this...
Also, Futurama v7 - 21.99

I've got the first two seasons on regular dvd and would have eventually grabbed the third in that format too. But, seeing as the BD is actually $3 less, I hopped on this one.

I have been wanting to get this but refuse to pay the previous asking price. Ordered it from GoHastings used for around $16 yesterday. Hopefully I get the right version.

Non 3D version was $8 something at WM. I picked that up since the 3D version has had some mediocre reviews apparently.

re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
Blu-ray.com gives the 3D a 3.5/5. Says picture is good but not spectacular. I'm on the fence whether or not to pick this up. But since nearly every other 3D Blu I've bought has been sub $20, I think I'll pass.

re: Amazon discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
In case this hasn't popped up yet, the first 45 Poirot adventures, Agatha Christie's Poirot: The Early Cases [Blu-ray] (1989), are only $85; 13 disks. That includes the first batches of movie-length shows and all the short shows. I'd be all over this if I hadn't bought four of the first five sets that came out earlier this year. The Blu Rays are a significant upgrade over the badly transferred old DVD issues of a decade ago.
