Looks like they took the sale down, now when you follow the link it says:

Blu-ray Sale: Buy Two, Get One Free
Check out our entire Blu-ray selection in the Blu-ray store.
Come back on August 11th to enjoy this sale. Restrictions apply; see terms and conditions.

I called customer service to get my order adjusted, but the link was taken down. The rep was nice, and said she will submit this for further investigation, and I should know something in 24 hours.

Ok. I feel better that the deal has, in fact, not yet started and they will probably be jacking up the price so I feel satisfied with my $15 Slumdog movie now....still, I could have taken upon this sale before it was taken down! I came to the right place at the right time for the first time in my life!

The sale has been disabled at this time.

The exact wording says: Come back on August 11th to enjoy this sale. Restrictions apply; see terms and conditions.

I wrote down the prices of the blu's I was interested in, submitted an order (Halloween-$12.99, Dawn of the Dead-$12.49 and Wyatt Earp-$12.49), then called customer service for the adjustment. They wouldn't do it, so I cancelled the order. We'll see if they jack up prices on the 11th.

punit, seeing as you are in India and have to pay international shipping, wouldn't it have been cheaper to order all of them at once? I know they might pick the cheapest ones as the freebies (but maybe not according to several previous posters) but paying shipping 5 times for international sounds like it might be expensive...

I never get them shipped to India. One has to be either a moron or a millionaire to pay the international shipping fees that Amazon charges.I always get them delivered to friends/cousins living in US and then get them here if somebody is visiting. Just have to be patient for that

What if you had your friends ship it to you? I'm not familiar with international shipping charges to India but would it be alot cheaper this way?

Can anyone who saw the sale pages please tell me whether they saw L.A. Confidential? I can pull the trigger for $15 elsewhere (for the moment), but I'd rather wait if it's part of this sale.

When I called to get the price adjusted, I just thought that they screwed up the sale no idea it wasnt time for it to start.

That said, the cs rep adjusted the price quickly so I will take that great deal thank you very much.

i didnt see LA Confidential but the list changed a lot as i paged through it so it is hard to say for sure.

The cheapest option is USPS's Air mail service which is almost equivalent to Amazon's shipping charges but the real pain is all the documentation you have to prepare for the customs which one has to send with the international parcel. There's always a chance that something may get missed and it would never reach me then.

I must have gone through the entire list atleast dozen times mixing-matching the prices and can confirm that it wasn't part of the sale. L.A.Confidential has been on my hit-list for quite some time now.

Total was $59.46. It took about 10 minutes, but worth the effort.
mind reporting back whether or not your baraka came in the eco-friendly case or the standard case?

That's pretty darn smart of you (and I commend you for your patience)!

I made several orders when I saw the post saying the sale wasn't starting till the 11th. I then e-mailed Amazon requesting a price adjustment. One e-mail for each order. They adjusted the price for each order. Much better than dealing with customer service on the phone. I would have cancelled any order they didn't adjust.

Sale is live and prices have increased. Good titles, but still a marginally decent sale. I am sure come November, most of these will be $12-13 anyway. I will take a dive on a few titles but will restrain myself for the most part.

The three things I was considering (Slumdog, Tell No One, Baraka) all spiked $5 or more, making the Buy 2, Get 1 a moot point.
