Thanks! Ordered Ponyo with plush (for my son) and My Neighbor Totoro to replace my UK edition for traveling purposes.

Thanks for the heads up. A great deal on movies that are hard to find at good prices. Ponyo and Castle in the Sky for me...

I'm amazed at how much these prices have held up over the years. They are truly impossible to find bargains on. But I just can't bring myself to buy SD movies anymore unless it is $5 or less. I wish one of the other titles was on BD, besides just Ponyo...

I already own all the Miyazaki films except Ponyo, so no go for me on a combo deal. I'll just wait for release day specials, if there are any.

I'll be looking for release day specials or another good sale at Costco. My buy-price on Ghiblis is about $13 or less.

Yeah, similar for me. I can't bite on Ghibli blu-ray for more than $15, and SD for more than $10. Same for Pixar.

Re: Save $10-$12 off Ponyo @amazon

anyone order any of the three re-issues (totoro, kiki, castle) from amazon and receive slipcovers with the sticker indicating an included litho? or more importantly, anyone not receive the litho?

I can't bite on a Ghibli anything without watching it first, and I won't have time (thanks to a work deadline and taxes) to rent or watch anything until after April 15th. Heck, I don't even have time to be reading or posting here, but I do it anyway because I'm a fool. So I'll have to miss this $15 Ponyo BD deal, plus the annoying coupon printing software always gives me grief requiring me to directly attach a printer to that machine (network printers don't work)... too much trouble for a title I haven't seen.

I think the BD may hit $15 again within a year (w/o the coupon), but having watched other Ghibli SD prices, they never go under $10 and it's rare for them to hit $15, so I expect the BD to remain overpriced which is why I find myself not buying Ghibli releases very often.

I got Kiki's Delivery Service for my daughter and it had the sticker and behind the Disney Movie rewards flyer there was a litho of the same dimensions.
