Re: Amazon: Blu-ray discounts and deals mega-thread

I moved some of the posts specific to Revenge of the Creature / disc replacement to a thread under HD Talk. I'm always cool with that sort of conversation in these threads, so don't take that as any sort of Mod Finger Wagging; 'sjust when they get long and involved enough, those discussions are probably better off being moved to a home of their own.

Re: Amazon: Blu-ray discounts and deals mega-thread

I found a buy 2 get 1 free promotion on this item basically by accident:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07T4MV773/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07T4MV773/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

I can not find a list or a link of what else qualifies for the promotion. I "chatted" with a CS rep in India & he knew less than I did.

Obviously, someone at Amazon messed up. Just on the off chance, does anyone hear know anything about this & where a link to a list of eligible items is sitting on the Amazon site?It's NOT under "deals"

Re: Amazon: Blu-ray discounts and deals mega-thread

Worked for me, though I didn't get a full 33% off because I couldn't find 3 items at the same price. My discount was really close to 25%; but all the items were either marked down, or the lowest price I could find on the net before the discount.

I ordered the Kit Parker Noir Vol 3 & 2 import cd/dvd combos from Wishbone Ash & Jack Bruce. If you've got the time, there's a ton of good stuff there. The Ida Lupino blu box was really tempting, but I have to pretend I'm living on a budget (because I am). I spent almost $70, which I hadn't planned on; but over 10% of that was sales tax.

hariseldon, I have no clue how you came up with that link, but it is very appreciated.

Itís not worded in the usual way. The idea is ďbuy 3 things, and 1 of those 3 things is freeĒ.

I see quite a few Criterions and Shouts in the selection. Might work out to better pricing than the usual sales from their home sites, assuming one can find a mix with the maximum discount.

Copied it from Blu-ray.com so thank them

Despite the odd wording, it is actually a Buy 2 items at regular price then Get next item free (Buy 3 items, pay for the 2 more expensive item??) .
I've heard the semantic argument that B3G1F is correct, but I'll never get used to it. Logically it does make sense, but it still seems wrong, but as long as the price
at the end is correct I can live with it. Overall I think I'll just stick with Target if I find something else I didn't get with the first 2.

Re: Amazon: Blu-ray discounts and deals mega-thread

Can confirm it's basically Buy Two, Get One Free (presumably of lesser or equal value). You can also have multiples of three in your cart and it will subtract accordingly (i.e. six in the cart, two free). I basically went through the list, added everything of potential interest to my cart, then started "saving for later" by approximate price points (around $19.99, around $22.99, etc), then moving various bundles of three into the cart to see what's within the budget.

Incidentally, the deal as it appears on individual listing pages says "Get 3 For The Price of 2". Not sure if it was different earlier.

The Spider-Man: Far From Home 4K Blu-ray also has a $5.00 extra savings coupon applied at checkout.

They are somewhat PMing Target's current B2G1 free DVD/BR/board game sale although the selections are not fully aligning and Amazon's covers more product lines.

I ordered some of the Marvel blu rays in that deal, The Spider-man two-movie set is a decent deal on its own.

I discovered they are giving the full amount of the lowest priced of the 3 items. Makes sense, no complaints.

The good thing is that even if they give you Spiderman far from home for free they still take the coupon off so you get an additional $5 in savings.

Re: Amazon: Blu-ray discounts and deals mega-thread

Picked up some odds and ends (mostly odd) at +/- $22.99 each, so six for the price of four:

MY NAME IS JULIA ROSS
THE TINGLER
PIRANHA II
IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS
THE ZODIAC KILLER (AGFA)
SKATETOWN USA

All in, it works out to pennies over $16 a disc. I suspect some of those may have been cheaper elsewhere in other sales, or will be, but this will do.

Didnt realize that last title had even been released. Itís MOD, but the reviews are ok and itís unlikey to get an official release because of the music rights.

Still mulling three $19.99 titles now . . .

Interesting. One of my $19.99 titles did suddenly disappear from the offer, so I might browse the listings again.

Skatetown is a Sony MOD via Allied Vaughn. Like WAC MOD discs they are 100% pressed -- not sure exactly what you mean by Official, but this is a normal non bootleg release from the company that owns the rights

Knew it was pressed and from Sony, which is why I ordered it, but I meant it would probably never get an Kino- or Shout-style SE version. Not saying it deserves one, but itís the kind of holy grail schlock that would benefit from a commentary or an interview or two. These Sony MODís have nothing, not even menus on a couple Iíve bought so far. But hey, this is better than nothing, and the deal puts it a little closer to a fair price.

Just noticed Shoutís $25.99 CANDYMAN SE has a $6.02 coupon attached, which drops it to $19.97, and since itís part of the Buy 2 deal, if you can find a couple of others in that price range, that makes it about $13+.
