Smallville season 7 blu ray 14.25 at Amazon
 
You have to click on the reseller link and pieceofmindmedia has it for 14.25 and it is fulfilled by amazon so it is elgible for free shipping on orders above 25 bucks,or if you do not want to order anything else to get to the 25 dollar mark you can get it from them for 11.49 plus 2.98 shipping which comes to 14.47 still a great deal.

In fact I think this deal is about as good as anything that amazon has offered all week in there big blu ray week promotion.

Yes, I myself have bought a lot of stuff from these guys through amazon and sometimes scratch my head at how they can offer some of this stuff for so cheap

my only complaint is how the prices change constantly. i had placed an order before and i remember the price for 21 on bluray was $13 and change, so i ordered it and somethin else.. a day later its down to $10. so i canceled my order and replaced it again haha

I bought Looney Tunes Vol 6 from them for $15. I think it's now like $11 or something.

Don't know how the seller can do it, but their prices have been pretty good - from what I've bought from them in the past. Either thru Amazon, Half or eBay - sells thru all of them.

Half & eBay seem to be the same items - haven't taken time to compare to Amazon side - prices on those 2 are pretty similar (when considering Halfs' S&H charges).

Only down-side to him/her/them is that their prices vary from day-to-day(or week-2-week). I bought S7 from them in mid-May for $19 shipped @ Half. Now it's gone down $4-5.

Dependable & reliable seller tho'.

Must be sending a semi thru Amazons' warehouse(s). From what I recall, everything I've gotten from them has come in an Amazon package - like straight from Amazon.

They and others sell thru Amazon, not just like you or I could, but actually using their warehouses and shipping.

Ditto! I bought a Blu-ray from them recently that was listed as "New" and it was clearly rewrapped as well. Sent them a e-mail about it but it was ignored. If you check their feedback via eBay/half.com they have a history of doing that.

This order was placed through Half.com so it came directly from them and not from Amazon's warehouses.

At $14.25 for Smallville season 7, it is probably re-wrapped. The MSRP is $79.98. I highly doubt that the wholesale price is below $14.25.

My guess is that they cull through all their used copies and find the ones that look good enough to be called new and they sell them as "new".

Many buyers would not notice and they will be happy. A few will figure out that they are used discs (in excellent condition) packaged in the best looking package with the least amount of wear and rewrapped.

If you go through their feedback, it is sprinkled with buyers who feel they were shipped rewrapped merchandise that they purchased as "new".

I think YMMV on this type of purchase.

That is a bold statement to say that bigtime sellers like pieceofmindmedia and newbury comics who do thousands of transactions through Amazon every month are more or less bald face liars,I have delt with each company many times and have been more than satisfied with there service and products.

You will always get whiners when you do the volume of buisiness that these companies do and I think you are just throwing this accusation out there for the hell of it with no real substantial proof that this is really going on. And as far as being rewrapped,hell i have bought stuff from best buy that looked rewrapped,it means nothing

Nugent 06-13-09 09:13 PM

Re: Smallville season 7 blu ray 14.25 at Amazon
 
Uhhhm, I don't find it to be a "bold statement" at all. I will go on record as calling them balled face liars, as you call it, if selling used Blu-rays as new is what you are referring to. It happened to me and I doubt seriously others are just making it up as well. There are two of us just in this thread that have received re shrinkwrapped items.

I will give that they do a really nice job of doing it and the average consumer would be none the wiser. The Blu-ray I recieved even had a generic security sticker on the top of the case. Under that along the front of the case was reminants of the original.
