National Treasure 1 and 2 BD

Credit goes to bluray.com for the deal. Great deal on NT2 since it's a new release as well. Here are the links

So do I. I'm not ordering it because I don't want it.

Preordered both, even though the first National treasure was 23.9something. If it goes down, Amazon has the preorder guarantee. For that guarantee, will it automatically lower what I pay for the order or do I have to call CS?

What's weird is that they have the first one with a $35 list price, but I thought (hoped?) that Disney had permanently lowered their catalog pricing to $30.

Normally yes... But they're going to milk both of these since 99% of people that want National Treasure: Book of Secrets will buy National Treasure... It's the same deal that they did with the Pirates of the Caribbean films.

I was going to counter that those movies came out when they were charging $35 for all catalog titles, but you're right: they do charge more for the popular ones. The first Narnia movie will be $35 while Coyote Ugly, Hidalgo, and Unbreakable will be $30.

Well, I hope that the Miramax titles, when they get around to releasing them, will be $30 (or even less).

I'm hoping Best Buy offers up a similar deal when Pirates 1/2 came out. Buy both, save $10.

I had both on pre-order already and neither dropped to 19.95. I cancelled the second one and re-ordered it at the lower price.

But wouldn't Best Buy's $29.95 x 2 - $10 still be like $7 more than buying both on Amazon now?

Glad I got in before the price change. They'll still honor the 19.99, yes?

I don't mind paying $7 more to have both on Tuesday. Plus, Amazon doesn't give reward zone points either.

Reward Zone points would be, at tops, 60 for both if they MSRP at $29.99. If 250 Points = $5 then 50 points = $1. So you would be getting like $1.20 in reward zone points....

I ordered from Amazon, even though #1 was $23.95 at the time. If I find it lower, or if Best Buy does some sort of bundle deal, I'll cancel and get it from them. But I don't think NT2 will be any lower then $28 on release day for the Blu-ray version. Plus I get free 2 day shipping and pay no tax. Works for me!

Yikes, that 7 bucks is a pretty hefty % increase.

(Amazon has their own rewards program if you have their card. And I wouldn't be surprised to have both titles shipped to my house on or before that Tuesday)
