Damn, you're still getting the 10%? That sucks, it's hard to complain after all the discounts I've had, but I wonder what is triggering the cancellations for some and not others.

Thanks! I didn't have enough money yesterday so I had to wait until today to make a purchase. Got in an order with it saying there were only 2 left. Bought Full metal Jacket with it.

No 10% off for me either anymore. Though I hit that limit a long time back initially, in like October, it still came and went (often at 5% off) during all the Holiday sales.

I just still can't believe that all of us are stocking up on hd media at $8 delivered to my door. It is cheaper than 1 movie ticket. I keep buying and buying.
Anyone who says the format war hasn't made software and hardware dirt cheap incredibly fast isn't paying attention. Or some are so invested with supporting their side, only to act as though others make the war devisive, like Bill Hunt, that you don't get that we are getting a great deal. This week he criticized those that love the format war (and that would include me) as and I quote:
"What's ironic is that the very people who say this to us often aren't actually choosing between these two formats themselves! Most of them have purchased players and discs in both formats, treating the format war like a bounty of high-def riches."
He then goes on to blame those that are format neutral, or buying lots of discs, as prolonging the war and hurting the overall common cause. So for Bill Hunt you can't have any good reason to buy a very cheap HD-DVD player, and you can't be format neutral and supporting both like crazy either.
Count me in as a whole new term "a purple hd eater" I eat blue and red both at rapid rates, buying up lots of discs and I love it. Let the rest of you argue over this. I am gonna watch and own tons of movies for cheap.
If Blu-ray wins out in 6 months do you think we will see sale after sale after sale on brand new titles B1G1? I sure don't.

Yeah, I don't know why I am still getting it as I have had it for a while now (I would say well over a year) but Im not complaining. I have Amazon Prime, so I dont know if thats a reason or not. Plus I had a few problems with it during some of the recent sales (the Ratatouille/Cars one for example), but I doubt that has anything to do with it.

I've got Prime too, I'm only really bummed because it's got Mr. and Mrs. Smith & Cast Away. I want those two more than most of the BOGOs I've already purchased. Ah well, I've made out more than well enough from Amazon.

Could not agree more! I am format neutral and buying up titles on both formats. There is NO way no how we would be getting these things this cheap if there was a "winner"! For now the "winner" is the consumer.

Bill Hunt is a tool! Is it just me or do the Blu-ray fan bois seem to be the most fervent in their hysterical support of all things blu? Just an observation. I just don't get the attachment to either "format". It's technology for goodness sakes.

Either way it would suit me just fine if this "war" drug on indefinitely. Viva La consumer for a change!

From what I understand, and how I've been using it, you need the Amazon Visa card and when you go to checkout, you put "DVDSAVE5" in the coupon box if your order totals over $50.

I don't have the Amazon Visa, nor do I want one, but all my purchases lately make it difficult for me to continue saying 'no'!

On the plus side, I ordered 14 movies for ~$120. I dug through my old collection of regular DVDs, which I keep sealed until I'm ready to watch them, and found 4 Standard Def disks that I was able to return to the store for credit of $76. (Having just bought the Blu-ray equivalent). Now THAT'S a good deal

I didn't remember seeing anything about a limit when they offered it. How do you even know how much you have used (without hunting through all the past orders)?

They're willingness to allow DVDSAVE5 with B1G1 sales has led to a lot of orders from me.

Their willingness to allow 10% HD discount has done the same for me. Those lucky with BOTH! Wow, it's gotta be nice

Wow, I kept trying to find movie combos that would let me use the $5 off Amazon Visa coupon, but turns out the $50 total BEFORE the get-one-free markdown counts!

True. With this, the convention wisdom of buying two identically priced titles per order falls flat.

Instead, order a $27.95 and a $23.95 title in a single order to maximize your savings. (Instead of 2x $23.95 titles...)

Or just two 27.95 titles... Would be the same price.

True -- it depends on the price of the items you wish to order. But for example if you want two $27.95 titles and two $23.95 titles, you'd be best off making two orders, each with one $27 and $23.
