Amazon fixed all the prices. I was able to get an order in for Road To Perdition, Old School and Shooter. Hopefully they won't cancel it.

Yep, I had about 12 titles in my cart. And all jumped to $9.99 or $12.99.

Re: $1 Blu-rays at Amazon

I grabbed 14 titles I wanted to upgrade. We shall see if this gets shipped. Even if it was a price mistake, these are going for $7 at Best Buy, and I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon was just clearing out inventory of the old Paramount skews.

Re: $1 Blu-rays at Amazon

Picked up before they changed the prices:

Wings (1927)
Sleepy Hollow
Airplane
Naked Gun
Zodiac
Indecent Proposal
Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Untouchables
The Firm
The Island
Friday the 13th
Zodiac
48 Hrs
Coming to America

I would have picked up some of these at BestBuy so this saves me a trip and a DVD if this goes through. Wished I'd picked up Hugo as well but I didn't know that one was on sale.

Re: $1 Blu-rays at Amazon

I doubt if they were just clearing old stock that the deal would only last a few minutes. More likely a price mistake.

Re: $1 Blu-rays at Amazon

Was worth a shot, but they didn't honor them so I just went off on how bad their service was and how Best Buy and other places honor their prices. Got Braveheart and Zodiac, though I already got Braveheart at Best Buy so got to go make a return.

Re: $1 Blu-rays at Amazon

Something similar happened a few years back at Amazon with graphic novels. Some people got full orders, some partial, some nothing but almost everyone got a gift card credit (I think for $25). Obviously the policy may have since changed, but that was how they handled it at the time.

Re: $1 Blu-rays at Amazon

If Amazon ships any of these price mistake BDs, please post!

I'm always curious what Amazon does in these cases. For me I'm 0 shipped for at least 6 price mistake orders over the years. The biggest fiasco was when they had a ton of music CDs for $1-$3 each which should've been 3-4x that price. I thought it was a legitimate sale and spent a lot of time ordering dozens of CDs. They cancelled about half of them right away and then dragged their feet for a couple weeks on the other half with 2 reps promising they were just OOS and would ship soon. Then out of the blue they cancelled them all. They were all on 1 order but they spammed me with separate emails for each item cancelled (fortunately the only time that has ever happened). It took a lot of complaining to get some credit to make up for this... and I felt totally justified doing it.

So if Amazon honors any of these, I'd be deeply shocked.

You probably would have been better off playing the nice guy and trying to get some credit. CS reps are more easily able to give out credit than change prices to ones that were in error.

Plus you don't need a note on your account that you're one of those guys that goes off on rants because he didn't get in on a price mistake. The next time you need to try and win favor from Amazon, things like that never help.

Haggling over their right to capitalize on any and all price mistakes in this Internet age. Remember, the customer is always right, even when it is an obvious mistake.

Re: $1 Blu-rays at Amazon

Sorry I missed out on this deal--hope some people get it.

At a quick glance, they appear to be Paramount titles--perhaps the Warner reissues? If they're new releases, it seems like more likely candidates for a pricing error than something they've been selling for years. Just speculation, though.

I thought I'd see a cancellation when I checked my email this morning, but nothing yet. I'd be really surprised to get these.

Re: $1 Blu-rays at Amazon

I'm not even expecting them, figure that way I can only be pleasantly surprised. And if they don't ship, I won't bother haggling a CSR over it. Just not worth it for me.

Re: $1 Blu-rays at Amazon

Just now received the "Your Amazon.com order of Zodiac [Blu-ray] and 6 more item(s) has shipped!" email.

"Your package is being shipped by PRESTIGE and the tracking number is PLxxxxxxxx. Depending on the ship speed you chose, it may take 24 hours for your tracking number to return any information. "
