Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

4/$44 + FS now live. Not sure of the expiration, but someone posted 1/8/2019 11:59pm PST
Once you get past 4 each additional is $11 so no need to do them in groups of 4.
Sales Tax is now applied to the majority of states.

It looks like it includes most BDs under $21.99 through the end of August plus Papillon BD, but no TV BD.
I haven't searched the whole list, but teh 2 disc Supergirl and Seven Brides still appear excluded.
EDIT: Superman (another 2 disc title) and Village of the Damned are also blocked.


138 BD

Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

Superman 2 disc extended edition is also excluded. I am guessing any multiple disk sets are excluded as has been the case in previous sales. Thank goodness for Barnes and Noble ship to home which included "The Sea Hawk" and "Seven Brides". Got all I wanted from B&N so nothing for me this time.

Between the DD BF/Dec deals and BN 40% off Dec sale plus coupons, etc I've wiped out my WAC wishlist for now including all the TV sets.
With WBShop 2 months late and pretty only including most of the things I bought during the BN JUne 40% off sale there really isn't much use to them right now.

Late, limited, and more expensive is not a way to go through life

I was all ready for a 4/44 sale, but they've excluded pretty much everything I was interested in.

Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

I was caught up to the September releases, and I even bought a couple of those along with Tarzan since.

It will probably be end of summer before things like The Thing, Dark Of The Sun, Blue Knight and others are eligible and on sale, so I'm just gonna put all the WA titles out of my mind till then.
In the past I always said I wished I'd waited for these sales. This year I'm committed to doing just that. It's going to be like a holy crusade for me.

Speaking of, I only bought the Ultimate Edition Blu--ray of Batman vs. Superman, and I was really tempted to get WB's LE set, but I just couldn't do it and bought the Target on-sale one for around $7. Great movie, and the Ultimate Edition is certainly the way to go. But for me, this time, was NOT the massive cardboard and fluffy additions.

Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

I see a bunch of great catalog titles, but I kept thinking oh, I'd rather pay $8 apiece or so. But on Amazon, they're all $15, $16, $17, some even seemingly out of print. How are they sitting on all that stock? Are there really a lot of people clamoring for The Goodbye Girl for seventeen bucks?!

I may actually have to try the sale, especially with free shipping.

Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

These sales are always tempting, especially the factory pressed blus. Due to finances (& the #$%! 10+% Wa state sales tax) I may pass this time.

I know I want the Bogart/Bacall Blu set when that has a big sale. I already have the dvd box....... I am so sick of replacing both music & movies over & over again! How about a frequent buyer discount! There are movies I've bought 4-5 times (every time there's an upgrade), & many music albums/cd's/etc that I've literally purchased 10 times or more.

Yep. I finally got tired of purchasing WA titles on release date only to have them go on bargain price sales of ~50% off just a few months later. I'm done with that madness and will now just wait.

After purchasing dozens of BR upgrades, some of which don't look much, if any, better than the DVD they're replacing, I now vet every upgrade title by watching the DVD first. If it looks "good enough" I do not upgrade. Music now has to offer something significant to be upgraded. And that doesn't mean some interview/commercial/other junk I'll listen to once if at all.

None of these have ever been $7 or 8 that I'm aware of other than a rare price mistake or used. I doubt Amazon (and others) are selling a ton of these at $16-18 other than those few Day 1 gotta have it discs (THE THING) or people that just don't want to wait. I'm not aware of any of the WAC Blurays that have ever gone OOP, but these are Pressed MOD discs (the Blurays and some of the DVDs) made in small batches so no reason to have a huge stock to sit on. Also no reason to go OOP unless you lose the license to it and since Warner owns the license that's not going to happen. Most of these don't even have cheap region free International releases to look for (or even region locked FWIW). The small batch concept does mean these items go in and out of stock far more frequently than standard releases. OTOH, these items regularly are sold at $11-13 so Amazon's normal prices are irrelevant to those who wait for the sales -- WBShop 4/44, BN 40%+ sales, and Deep Discount sales.

The items like TV sets and the Bogart Box are never going to a part of this sort of sale and honestly rarely go on sale more than 25-30% off even at Deep Discount with a code. Finding a DD Price and Code simultaneously active isn't easy, but it happens a couple times a year. I think a few people said they got Bogart for around $25 at Deep Discount around BF and $17-20 +tax at the last BN sale that ended Christmas so that's probably the nadir

Deep Discount had the majority of these Pre Sept discs on sale from mid Nov through Christmas at 30-45% off and at least twice had 15% codes to add so $11-12 each and that was before DD jumped of the Sales Tax bandwagon. I ordered about 6-8 of the summer titles I needed then figuring the prices were about the same as what was expected to be WB 4/44 sale+ tax, but WBShop decided to even skip that this year. The Sept to Dec WAC titles and TV series I got at BN 40% off sale the week before Christmas with my membership discount and 15-20% off coupons so basically $9.50-10 + tax each. The WAC titles are not discounted online and aren;t carried in-store so you have to do a ShipToHome order from the store to get that price, but at 50-65% off it's worth it esp for those TV series that are rarely even 35-40% off

The DD and BN sales are likely why many of these are OOS at various places right now since Amazon, etc often is supplied by the same Wholesale distributor who supplies BN, etc or flat out owns DD. Blowitoutahere (DD sister store) Ebay front often has their WAC at prices where their 15-20% promo discounts stack with the Ebay 15-20% added codes so some folks wait on deals there.

Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

I think the point of starting the archives was to find a way to release catalogue titles in a way they could make some money by having a limited release and maintain price. Originally the DVDs were released based on best elements available without any restoration. Later they started releasing blu rays and updating some of the DVD releases. Later still some DVDs and blu rays released generally were moved to archives. They were never meant to be heavily discounted or end up at Big Lots, Costco or the Walmart $5 bin. For those who remember many of the Warner Bros. general release discs did end up at Big Lots. I am sure the end of Tower Records and local stores that sold DVDs also played a part in the founding of the archive as places like Walmart and Target prefer to sell the latest Marvel movie rather than any catalogue title.

Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

Is there a list of dvd's they sold, & than updated? If I bought any, I feel like they should offer a major discount for the upgrade.
