That's the one of the advantages of DVD Profiler. Even the site shut down you could continue using it -- even creating entries for new releases -- because your database is stored locally. The only thing you would lose is access to the shared work already done by others for titles you add. You could even continue to sync between your pc and mobile device.

Strange thing to mention. I didn't buy anything on Prime Day, but they sent me an email saying thanks for making your purchase on Prime Day and they rewarded me with 3 months of Amazon Music for free. So I gladly accepted, but that was weird.

Maybe I lurked enough through their deals to get their computers to give it to me?

They tried for days to get me to subscribe to that for $0.99 for 3 months. Emails, snail mail letters, etc.

I saw something about exporting a file and tried it, but no success. I had to cut the file into several small pieces, then upload them, and it took forever. Was a long time ago and not sure if they've changed that system.

Yeah, that's why I like it. Wish they'd improve on it, but it works.

I don't know if they're price-matching someone, but Amazon is reducing their prices on a lot of Shout! titles. Prices and titles vary.

I saw Troll/Troll 2 for 16.99. I didn't see any real reduced prices on their titles. At least not a reduction that would be significant enough to catch my eye.

Best Buy is either having a sale or inventory Clear Out/Sell Off on a lot of older titles -- prices vary from OK to very good

It looks like some Shout Factory titles are discounted by Amazon.

This is about the only time Shout discs get cut in price. Disturbing Behavior has been dropped to $12.99:

Disappointing there's no deal on the Space 1999 box set.

Best Buy Shout Sale

I guess you could try to start here and work your way back to Amazon assuming the filtered link holds which it often doesn;t

The Original Star Trek is $35.38 almost the cheapest it has ever been, Per CamelCamelCamel it has been 40 cents cheaper.

dont recall if it was 2018 or 2017 but there was a phase when along with select WAC titles, this title kept dropping in price by a few cents every day. I recall buying it at like $15.90. it was also in response to Walmart's price check + added discount for store pickup

This title and a couple others have been in the Walmart /Amazon phone tag game.

It literally seemed to be the item someone at Walmart was either testing or messing with the Amazon Price Chase Algorithms. It was one of those few pennies and respond, then Walmart would add a Instore special discount and see how long it took Amazon to respond, then it would inexplicably go in and out of stock or jumped $5 and drop $5.25 in price every couple hrs. Of course everytime Walmart would go OOS, Amazon price would jump back to $27-30 then a few hrs later have to be dropped again when WM pushed the INSTOCK button

Amazon's prices would jump and drop and change nonstop for weeks on end chasing the Walmart phantom prices. Walmart of course price corrected for their own customers for 60-90 dyas, but judging from online comments Amazon CSRs took an absolute beating because those that ordered at $17-19 were denied corrections even though the item was often backordered or worse 'in process' of shipping or just shipped so people could neither get the lower price nor cancel and reorder. Tons of refused delivery/return to sender to avoid those that attempted returns but customers had to pay return shipping

The Fast and Furious 1-8 collection is only $30 today as the deal of the day. This is the BD version.

It's down to $14.94 now. It's listed as temporarily out of stock, but you can still order it.

I thought about getting NOTLD but they have the full BD edition up on the CC channel, so that's good enough for me.

The 7 movie set is still available via 3rd party vendor/Prime for ~$18
http://www.amazon.com/Fast-Furious-7.../dp/B01C42GYQA
It was as low as $16.16 recently.
If you were lucky, you could've found it at Big Lots for $10.

And, all of these codes (except Fast Five I believe) redeem as 4k on iTunes, and port to MA as 4k. Some will give extended, some theatrical.

$15 credit for buying $50 in Amazon giftcards:

https://news.yahoo.com/hey-look-amaz...115612757.html

The caveat here is that you’re only eligible for the promo if you’ve never bought Amazon gift cards before on the Amazon website. If you’ve purchased Amazon gift cards in stores, you’re fine — you’re only excluded if you’ve purchased them before on Amazon’s own website.
I think I've purchased Amazon gift cards before but it worked for me. YMMV.

Coupon code is 19GIFTCARD or use direct link:
