You could have added 7 more Blu-rays for only $22 more.

Just when i thought I was done....

Picked up the 6 bonds for like $35 after all the discounts. (I already own the 2 bond sets--opened the first one and didn't like the packaging. But I'm sure I can get at least $35 for the two of them.)

Added the 2 ice ages, daredevil and mrs doubtfire for only like $20 more!

Also added jewel of the nile/romancing the stone since those prices dropped and an extra $5 off the pair.

All 12 for under $84! I have been doing way to much Christmas shopping for myself with these Amazon sales!

Can't pass up adding 4 more Blu-ray's for only $15.26 more or only $3.82 per title. $5.78 average per Blu-ray, you can't get SD-DVD's for much cheaper than that .

Order I placed Friday had an estimated shipping date of Dec 5 - and I just received a shipping notice. I think they are giving themselves some wiggle room to avoid complaints, and will be trying to ship out a lot faster than the dates they give.

Quick, if depressing answers. Thanks!

Any chance sweetners will re-added? I'm looking at in the $80s where others were less, just to upgrade already decent Bonds to Blu, and add in a few things that would probably never make my radar....

Rats!

Buy the 6 Bonds, and add 4 more $16.99/$17.49 titles if you can. You'll save $100 on 10, versus only $50 on 6. This will help alleviate the lack of the $15 bonus. You're still getting a hell of a value, so I'd do it now, because this certainly will not last until December 7.

For example:

Live and Let Die (James Bond) [Blu-ray] - $17.49
From Russia with Love (James Bond) [Blu-ray] - $17.49
For Your Eyes Only (James Bond) [Blu-ray] - $17.49
Daredevil - The Director's Cut [Blu-ray] - $17.49
Thunderball (James Bond) [Blu-ray] - $17.49
Die Another Day (James Bond) [Blu-ray] - $17.49
Mrs. Doubtfire [Blu-ray] - $16.99
Phone Booth [Blu-ray] - $16.99
Dr. No (James Bond) [Blu-ray] - $17.49 -
The Sand Pebbles [Blu-ray] - $19.99

Items: $176.40
Shipping & Handling: $11.89
Super Saver Discount: -$11.89
Blu-ray Promotion: -$100.00

Total Before Tax: $76.40

I went to order some more TV boxed sets today and all the prices have increased, some substantially.

I thought this sale was supposed to run through 12/2.

I had an order with S1-3 of The Office and S1-3 of Entourage along with Transformers Blu-ray, and they shipped Transformers all by itself Friday. They must really hate having pending order lying around or something. I'll take it, but I feel sorry for my mailman having to make all the extra drives up my lane because an Amazon box won't fit in the mailbox.

I seem to recall the same thing happening last year - whatever I bought on Black Friday stayed on sale for a few days, but each day the price was a little higher. I noticed the same thing this year: I bought some Entourage seasons at $8.99 Friday morning, later that day I saw they were $9.99, and this morning they were $16.99. Still less than most places are charging, but I'm glad I took the plunge on Friday.

Wow! I ordered "Psych: The Complete Second Season" along with a Waylon Jennings CD and a Randy Travis live DVD on Wednesday. "Psych" and Waylon showed up in today's mail--and I used saver shipping, or whatever they call it. You know, the free shipping. Unbelievable!

Most of the sale items are limited in quantity. Once that quantity is sold out the item goes back up to the normal price.

I had the tenth season of The Simpsons in my cart for $13.99 on Friday, and when I went to place my order on Saturday it had gone up to $14.99.

Most of the "sale prices" you saw were actually price matches from competitors' sales (most notably, Best Buy). Also, as the details of the sale at Amazon state, the prices and availability will change during the week.
