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

Amazon's got a 'Get 3 for the price of 2' offer going on and as usual, the filters are designed to frustrate - search 'bluray' and you find books in the search result, search '4k' and you find vinyl in the search results. And the abominable 'see more' button at the bottom only brings up a bunch of repeated listings from the list above it and so on. But I was able to filter out some for a good deal - $19.98 + tax for the 3 below:
  • Ambulance 4K
  • Dirty Dancing 4K
  • Last Night At SoHo 4K

I didn't realize that Amazon sold used stuff. I thought it was always 3rd party sellers.

Picked up Femme Fatale since it was almost 50% off and I had a $5 credit on Amazon.

Some of the other Shout Titles also qualified for the buy 2 get 1 sale, like Twins, Hackers etc.

I believe the Amazon Warehouse items are just customer returns.

Star Trek The Motion Picture Director’s Cut Complete Adventure - $48.99
Amazon Amazon

Edit: scratch that. Went back up.

Jurassic World 6-pack (Blu/DVD) was briefly $29.99, but that went back up too.

Guess they might be worth watching. 🙂

Well, now I feel stupid for paying so much for it when it came out.

Edit: Amazon just completed flipping everything over from Black Friday deals to Cyber Monday deals, and this was a Black Friday deal, so it is now dead.

Even though the price went back up right after I posted that (edited my post above), I was reminded of all the folks here and elsewhere that went nuts trying to get a copy at twice the price as if it was going OOP soon or something. Struck me as odd at the time that it would be limited in any way, but the constant (seeming) sell-outs at many online retailers undoubtedly drove people to pay more than they needed to. Something tells me it will be closer to $50 more regularly soon enough.

It did say ‘Black Friday’ deal on the listing when I noticed it drop a few minutes ago, but it definitely wasn’t $48.99 throughout the day unless it was on-and-off like some of the other deals reported here. I wasn’t watching it religiously, but it is in the ‘saved for later’ section of my cart, and it was $70-ish most times I scrolled past it.

To be fair, there were reasons why people thought that. One of the producers of the Director's Edition stated pretty definitively that it was Limited Edition that would sell-out in preorder. That's why everyone panic-bought.

So, either they made more than he thought, they sold less than he thought, they held some back for Black Friday, or they produced more. It was out of stock for a couple months on Amazon until just a week or two ago. But I think it was still pretty readily available at most retailers most of the time. So, not as limited as we'd been lead to believe.

Not too long before the Star Trek Motion Picture set came out there was the Ghostbusters set that did sell out never to come back again. That could have played into the FOMO for getting this set before it was gone. It was also advertised as a limited run that did become unavailable for a time.

Good points. I suspect that “not as limited as we thought” is becoming a common tactic these days, or at least “not as likely to sell out as we’re telling you”, especially with certain boutique labels and their efforts to convince us to shell out full price on day one for some fancy new ‘limited’ edition of a film we never knew had a rabid, massive cult following — because it probably didn’t and the label’s marketing department needed to create the perception of one to move units. The Star Trek set seems a bit more egregious coming from a major studio (or maybe not!), but I suppose if the set truly does go OOP in due time, or at least never drops below $50 again, then maybe there’s still some truth to how many they produced.
