amazon price adjustment/sale 1/11/08

I noticed amazon dropped prices on many of the blu-ray and hd-dvd they have had on sale in the last few weeks BOGO deals. All have dropped about $5. So you might be able to get some adjustments. Also, this is not a complete list, so feel free to add what you find..

what I have noticed: Blu-ray
xmen last stand
usual suspects
fantastic four silver surfer
ebhind emeny lines
league of extaordinary gentlemen
robocop
ice age meltdown
die hard 1
die hard 2
Die hard 3
courage under fire
28 days later
speed
kingdom of heaven
edward scissorhands
goodfellas
blazing saddles
transporter
full metal jacket

hd-dvd:
reds
serenity
dune
backdraft
deer hunter
spartacus
casino

I was thinking of info for adjusting BOGO prices, but its also a sale for those who missed out. Plus I think there are a few new titles on sale.

I also noticed Close Encounters was reduced to $23.99! Not bad at all

I might have to pick that up I was waiting for the price to drop

Go to help and contact customer service. It will bring up a page where you can select the order/item at issue.

I have never had a significant price adjustment, usually less than $1 but it's been automatic. I would guess for a larger amount you would need customer service.

Thanks OP! 8 titles I ordered have gone down, some as much as $8 each. Also add Crank, Robocop, and 5th Element

These are some great prices btw. Fox titles - affordable!

Ordered Midnight Run. I don't think it was in any BOGO deal so far.

emailed about a refund for $5 for Hot Rod... however, I ordered 31 days ago, so there is a chance I'll be SOL.

Thanks! I ordered BR on the BOGO like a lunatic!!

Edit: "Item prices that are affected by a promotion such as "Buy one, get one free" are not eligible." Bleh!!

YAE: just found this in an amazon discussion, don't know if it's well known or not. There's a website that will track price drops and email you if it happens: http://www.priceprotectr.com/

Too bad their shipping to Canada went up (even more than before, I think).

7.98 for one disc.
10.97 for two discs.
13.96 for three discs.
etc. etc.

lame. oddly, my 10% discount still applies...

I have so far received $28.30 in refunds for price drops on X-Men Last Stand, Casino, Dune, Serenity, and The Deer Hunter. Big ones left are Spartacus and Jarhead. Then I go for small ones like House of 1000 Corpses, Weeds S1, and Reservoir Dogs.

I assume they credit this back to your particular card, as opposed to adding a credit for the amount to your account?

How long does it take for amazon to email you back with a response?
