How do you save tax? You're still lawfully required to pay your state use tax come April 15th for all internet purchases for which taxes were not collected at the time of sale.

Thanks for the heads up OP. After resisting many a time, I finally broke down and ordered Blade Runner and Pan's Labyrinth.

So I could actually select two 11.95 titles and have the honor of spending 30 bucks on them? Why did they even bother adding them to the sale? Am I missing something here? Thanks OP for the heads up!!

Why do I know you offered to take names when the teacher was out of the classroom?

Why do they never have Chicago on sale? Grrrr.

i don't think it really reflects on your intelligence, but there is only a 5-disc Blu-ray of Blade Runner.

Went with Amazon on this deal instead of Bestbuy because Blade Runner wasn't available for store pick-up anywhere in my area plus to save a little on tax, and now I'm paying for it.

Got the package today, and there's a big gash running along the side for the 2 discs I ordered like they ran a boxcutter along it tearing right into the boxes. Sheesh, now I have to go through the hassle returning the thing and requesting a replacement. First bad experience with Amazon in a long time.

It won't be a hassle. They will send out a replacement right away via Next Day Air. You'll have to print out the return postage label on their website. Just return the damaged disc within 30 days and all will be well.
