Amazon Musicals Of The Day / December 9 2012

Well, it looks like Amazon has blu-ray deals all day today. http://www.amazon.com/gp/goldbox/ref=cs_top_nav_gb27


There are the deals of the day:
  • Singin' In The Rain: 60th Anniversary Collector's Edition (Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (2012) for $39.99
  • The Sound of Music (45th Anniversary Blu-ray/DVD Combo Limited Edition) (1965) for $18.99


And then there are those deals that are offered throughout the day. I can take guesses at some, but was wondering if anyone knows what these are?
  1. 12:00 AM PST Gentlemen Prefer Blondes [Blu-ray] for $10.99
  2. 6:00 AM PST Upcoming Deal Musicals Day in the Gold Box: "Oh you pretty Chitty Bang Bang" on Blu
  3. 9:00 AM PST Upcoming Deal Musicals Day in the Gold Box: "Bali Ha'i may call you" on Blu
  4. 11:00 AM PST Upcoming Deal Musicals Day in the Gold Box: "I'll never stop saying Maria" 50th Anniversary Edition Box Set
  5. 1:00 PM PST Upcoming Deal Musicals Day in the Gold Box: "All day long I'd biddy biddy bum" on Blu
  6. 3:00 PM PST Upcoming Deal Musicals Day in the Gold Box: "Traveling through the country is so thrilling" on Blu
  7. 6:00 PM PST Upcoming Deal Musicals Day in the Gold Box: "Have you met my good friend Maria" on Blu
  8. 9:00 PM PST Upcoming Deal Musicals Day in the Gold Box: "My gift is my song, and this one's for you" on Blu

Those first two are tempting, but was wondering what the others are. I have a limited budget.

And, apparently, a limited knowledge of musical theater.

Too bad there are no deals on The Music Man or My Fair Lady BDs.

That's a great deal for people in Canada. The $10 shipping charge makes the US deal better for those in the US.

I might have been tempted by South Pacific if I had seen it earlier. Not my favorite film, but it doesn't look like there'll be a R&H BD collection anytime soon.

I was puzzling over what to use the $5 FB coupon on because it expires today and I didn't want it to go to waste, so I got South Pacific (one of my favorite R+H musicals) and Cronos for $23.98 with free 2-day shipping with Prime.

With all the Criterions I've bought this month, I can skip next year's B&N sale, which is just as well since my store is going kaput. Unless, of course, the B2G1 sale again coincides with the sale online.

I just wish there was a cheap deal on a plain vanilla Singing in the Rain. I don't need an umbrella; I want a BD of the greatest musical ever.

Sorry to hear that - you may want to call them or just place a new order. Can't beat the price even if you end up getting a 2nd set.

I ordered it Nov 30 received it I think within one week. (I almost bought it at Best Buy for 19.99 that day - just decided to check this forum in the store, placed order from my iPhone for 12.49)

Yeah, I don't get why it's cheaper to ship from amazon.co.uk to either the U.S. or Canada than it is for amazon.com to Canada, or amazon.ca to the U.S.

I think it's also faster for me to receive an order from the amazon.co.uk than amazon.com.

I'm in for the Sound of Music. I shouldn't have, but someone posted all the extras and it looks like a great set and you can't beat the price for this! I threw in a book I wanted to get free shipping.

I already have the Willy Wonka one, but if anyone is in doubt, that also is a fun set. I bought it when it first came out, so a bit bummed about that, but it's one of my favorite movies so it was worth it for me. For 24.99, you can't go wrong!

I'd buy Singing in the Rain, but I agree, I don't need an umbrella!
