They must still be adding titles. The first page just changed completely as I went to page 2 and then back.

I'm seeing the same titles on multiple pages. Is there a way to just see a list of all included in the sale?

I don't think so

I think you have to go through all 11 pages

This promotion doesn't seem to be working...no discount taken at checkout.

Maybe they have to sort this out.

Not working for me either....they have to be working on it still...I just don't see Slumdog Millionaire staying at $13.99 for this sale.

Placed an order anyway and Customer service took off the price of one of the Blu-rays, so I was able to get Slumdog at a nice price.

I called customer service and placed my order. I got.

The Aviator
Slumdog Millionaire
The Last Waltz
The Graduate
Becket
Baraka

Total was $59.46. It took about 10 minutes, but worth the effort.

It is worth noting that titles keep changing as you navigate.

There are duplicates a plenty as well.

But, clicking on "Action" revealed titles which I never saw by browsing through the "All" list, etc.

Re: Amazon Buy Two, Get One Free Blu Ray Sale - Ends Aug 21st!

how is it shady?? its not like u are returning a different or stolen product? its the same product, still sealed. i bought my copy of slumdog @ walmart w/ a price match for $15. for me that was a good enough deal.. another dollar or 2 less isnt that big of a deal to me, for some it is.

haha so now im "cheato" huh??

I had to call customer service twice. First person wanted me to e-mail the link to the sale since she couldn't find it. Anyway the second person took the price of one of the item off. Now the order says for that item, "Price is currently unavailable . We will e-mail you the price for your approval."
Strange.

That is how they do it. Don't worry, you're good to go.

There are 13 pages. You have to click the "next" button a couple more times when you get to page 11. This may be why people are seeing "additional" items under the individual headings.

Someone posted on Amazon's board that this sale isn't supposed to start until next Tuesday, August 11....I guess somehow the link to the pages was already activated! Too bad Amazon will probably raise all their prices before it actually starts, thereby killing what right now looks to be a great sale....

Just called Amazon and they gave me the run-around. They always do this stuff. It is very annoying. It's called putting the deal on a non-production server first, then bring it live when the sale is actually supposed to by live. Of course they are going to jack up all of the prices by the time tuesday rolls around which will kill the deal.
