This link should work for TRSI's bargain bin:

Just for the record, I always post a link in the update to where the sales are located. The Bargain Bin link works.

Well, after 6 months, my Big Lots finally restocked with some anime. Picked up:
Scrapped Princess 1 (really happy that finally showed up there)
.hack Twilight 1
Galaxy Angel Z 1,2

Left behind lots of stuff like Argentosoma, Angel Tales, Kikaider, Mars Daybreak, Yukikaze and Stratos 4.

Only new thing to add to the list:
Mobile Suit Gundam F91 Special Edition (movie)

Hmm. All of those were from last time; including Gundam F91 (I know, I bought all of them. ). Maybe your Big Lots! is just slow? Anyway, I'll be near a Big Lots! tomorrow, and I'll see if they have anything.

You know, I never noticed that ;) I'm surprised that the links to the bargain bin are permanent and the ones to studio sales are not, even though they are formed similarly. Even the most recent "Phat Savings!" link doesn't work.

I'd appreciate it if some people could try the following link and tell me if it works in your browser (FF 1.5.0.7 works OK):
Phat Savings!

The link redirects to a bookmarklet for the time being. Adblock should be enabled if you're running firefox to get rid of the Geocities ads (and fully redirect to TRSI's site). The reason that I have to have a redirection is that vB doesn't seem to like making links out of js scripts.

Here's the code for anyone interested:
Code:
javascript:(function(){document.open();uri='http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/catalogmgr/browse/link/t=search,c=right-stuf,v=right-stuf,w=submit';f=document.createElement('form');f.method='post';f.action=uri;i0=document.createElement('input');i0.type='hidden';i0.name='use-243';i0.value='enabled';i1=document.createElement('input');i1.type='hidden';i1.name='select-243-1';i1.value='1';i2=document.createElement('input');i2.type='hidden';i2.name='select-243-2';i2.value='2222';f.appendChild(i0);f.appendChild(i1);f.appendChild(i2);b=document.createElement('body');b.appendChild(f);h=document.getElementsByTagName('html')[0];h.appendChild(b);f.submit();})()
The link won't expire as it does when copying from the URL field of the browser. Of course, this thing is useless unless I can make it work for all TRSI studio sales or being able to make a direct link out of it here but depending on how the next studio sale works, I may be able to make it universal. Also, if anyone knows of a way to post the bookmarklet as a link in the forum, please PM me! :)

That link works, so I updated the link. Sorry about that. I didn't realize the studio sale links were useless.

Added the Gundam movie.

Usually those links only work for the 15m or 1h or whatever.
I think it's only until your session times out...
< snip>/catalogmgr/n8CCQpsLg1d1nA=y32/browse/< snip>

That's why I never tried the other links to TRSI from the main page. I just figured they would time out as well...

Just a note about that link, I plan on moving it over to a non-ad-imposing host so those nasty Geocities ads don't pop up. I'm still working on the bookmarklet.

Right, but Gundam wasn't on the list. Some of those were at my Big Lots last time, some weren't. Just letting people know what I saw. All the Big Lots receive different titles than others, and at different times, and some not at all.

this isn't THAT good of a sale...considering you can get most of those box sets for half off what their price is! like excel saga you can get for only $17.99 at BESTbuy.com and Kaleido Star for $14.99 at best buy too!

Getbackers and Petite Princess Yucie for $23 shipped each with Google coupon. Not too bad. Some things like Sakura Wars and Those Who Hunt Elves have free shipping for orders over $25. If you can find a $5.01 filler, that's only $20 shipped!

Most of these are $4 cheaper (with Google coupon) than you can get at DDD 20% sale. Thanks for that Reaper, I'm sure that took awhile.

Edit: Gah, I knew the coupon doesn't work on preorders, but it doesn't work on OOS ones either.

Hey gang. Can anyone give me an update on the Grenadier: The Beautiful Warrior: Premium Collection at $24.99 found at Suncoast. I finally found a Suncoast that has it, but the guy on the phone told me it was $49.99. The price on the tag, he said, had been lowered $10.00. Does anyone have any information on this deal? Is it something that would show up when it rings up, or is it on the tag and I've missed it?

Anyone have any information/thoughts/experience picking this set up?

Best,

-B

I think that it's a pretty sweet sale. Only 6 of the 36 sets listed are cheaper at Best Buy. Throw in the Google discount and you've got some cheap sets.

I believe the 50% off Geneon dvds sale, which include this set, has already ended. I was going to pick up the rest of Kyo Kara Maoh! myself, but was a little too late.

That's disappointing, particularly since I took all that time to track it down. So should we mark this as DEAD, or at least update it with the $49.99 price tag I got today?

Oh well, maybe I'll get it next time.

Best,

I think the reason the Bargin Bin link works is because it's a "pre-formatted" link. I mean, you go to the online store and there's the "Bargin Bin" link while the "studio sales" are actual searches.

So, slightly different in execution ^_^

A member over at the AOD forums posted that he got a copy of the new Animerica magazine at Best Buy today. Alas, it didn't have the 30% coupon like the one in the Spring issue(actually, it's probably just as well since I'm tapped out).

A few copies of Sakura Wars TV Complete Collection showing back in stock this morning at buy.com ($25 before coupon).

Also saw mention on the AOD forum that FMP: Fumoffu 4 may be $6.99 at BestBuy -- will check that out later today.

Yeah, i feel stupid now. That's probably it I just noticed that there is actually a difference in the links after all. It is sort of annoying though having to recreate a POST form just to make a direct link... (and not being able to link directly to it here. doh!)

Also, finally completed my .hack//sign collection with LE vols 3-5 30$ shipped at frys.com (woo!). Even with the ridiculous shipping for 3 DVDs, still a good deal
