Kino Studio Classics 'Launch' Sale - Ends August 6, 2017

Well shit, I think I'm about to get even more broke.

This was mentioned in the Kino thread over in HD, but definitely worth noting here, as it's their biggest sale yet. Nearly the entire Blu-Ray line is $9.98 or less and plenty of fairly new releases are included.

From their Facebook feed:

To celebrate the launch of the new Kino Lorber Studio Classics website we're having our biggest sale ever! 401 titles! DVDs as low as $5.98! Blu-rays from $7.98!

Free USA Shipping - Orders of $50 or more
Free Canada Shipping - Orders of $100 or more

Sale starts today and ends Sunday, August 6th!

John Ford's The Hurricane is going out of print on July 31st - DVD $7.98 | BD $9.98 (while quantities last)

I hear that. I'm approaching $400. I can probably kill quite a few because I already have them. Just need to check previous orders first because, hey, who actually has time to watch stuff?!. I'm hoping with this sale I can basically finish up the list of Kino titles I want to own and then just grab newer stuff if they ever repeat this sale in the future.

Had a little trouble placing an order. Choice of shipping method kept disappearing and it kept asking me to chose a shipping method. Logging off and on finally seemed to fix problem. Site seems to be being hit hard at time I was trying to place order.

FYI the Bob Hope titles I posted about a few days ago that were on sale for $14.97 are now $8.98 with the exception of Son Of Paleface which is still listed as a preorder and not included in this sale. It is still $14.97.

The DePatie-Freleng ($30 for four titles) and Film Noir ($25 for five titles) boxed sets are particularly good bargains as they shave quite a bit off the price of the individual discs.

In the last week, I've actually been looking up a few Kino titles. Maybe this sale is a sign for me to spend some money.

Took your advice, loaded up the cart with 23 interested titles for a later decision - went out for a bit of gardening and lunch, came back to the site to see cart has been emptied !! what kind of a site is this that has such less cart retention period ??? I mean, why would a site even want to clear cart contents on its own :-(

On the other hand, perhaps its a 'sign'...to help me stick to my original resolution. Damn this temptation

Kino titles at 9.99 are a steal IMO. I got 20 during the last sale and have liked every one so far.

The br noir box looks interesting at $30. Need to decide if I can afford $50 at this time to get the free ship. At least the sale is on until early August. I'm also looking at the Arrow sale in the Region b thread, & still considering the Flicker Alley Lost World.

I need to win the lottery.

Plus the separation between Classics, KL, Redemption is more than a bit aggravating.
No, I wasn't signed into my account. I just did and noticed something saved into my cart from a few weeks ago...so, it seems like you need to be signed in to retain your cart. And yes, your comments on the lack of filters is so true. Also, I wanted to complete my Charles Bronson collection, so used their 'Actors' filter which pulled up the featured titles and the links right next to it. Now click on those product links and each one brings you to a 'page not found' message. And in this day and age, how can you not have a 'first' and 'last' page links to a product listing across multiple pages. There's roughly 17 pages of product but if you are on page 7 for e.g, there's no way to navigate back to the first page or even page 2 because the display listing is restricted to 10 pages. Unless you go to the page link in the web page of your browser and input the page number you want to (re)visit. Badly designed and badly tested

Yeah, you definitely need to be logged in when filling the cart. The site does time you out, but it also saves carts if you're logged in.

It definitely needs some work. So far, though, I've only found one title that took me to a "page not found": When Eight Bells Toll. Might skip that one.

Could you check the Charles Bronson actor filter results just as a test of the site ? everyone of them brings me to a 'page not found'. TIA

But really, this sale is a killer. Am looking at my Amazon wish list which seems to be ONLY KL titles for most part and the prices there vs the current KL sale prices ??? I need my CC blocked

You're right. When I find his name in the actor list, and click the titles, I get "page not found" on them. However, when I click his actual name, I get a page with mini-listings of all the titles and those all work fine.

Thanks for checking. Am guessing any further investment of KL into the testing of the site might cause prices to go up...will stop complaining

Cry of the City
Pitfall
Road to Bali
Road to Rio

There's finally 53 titles in my cart - 51 BDs and 2 DVDs...negligible perhaps for someone who didn't want to participate in this. This is madness :-)

Yes now the problem is stopping yourself from placing another order. Sale lasts until August 6 so lots of time for temptation. I am talking mostly about myself.

Re: Kino Studio Classics 'Launch' Sale - Ends August 6, 2017

Now this is more like it! I've never bought from K-L directly before because past sales had only 2 or 3 titles that were high on my list. Some films like "They Made Me a Fugitive" still aren't included, but no matter:

1 [Blu-ray] The Captive City $8.98
1 [Blu-ray] Daredevils of the Red Circle (1939) $10.98
1 [Blu-ray] The Undying Monster $9.98
1 [Blu-ray] The Hurricane $9.98
1 [Blu-ray] A Game of Death $8.98
1 [Blu-ray] Deluge $9.98
Sub-Total: $58.88

Kind of glad I skipped the Criterion and Warner Archive sales this time around. Let's hope K-L starts doing this every year! And I hate to remind everybody that DD's annual Olive sale should also be along shortly...
