Amazon.co.uk 3 for 2 blu-ray deal

This is not a new deal, it's been ongoing for months. But they've lowered many of the prices and the pounds to dollars exchange rate has significantly changed in the US's favor. The pound which not that long ago was worth $2.00 is now worth about $1.40. Thus there are some great deals to be had.

I just ordered these:

Payment Information Print order summary
Item(s) Subtotal: 90.12
Postage & Packing: 9.02
-----
Total Before VAT: 99.14
VAT: 0.00

Total: 99.14

Grand Total: 80.74 (about $112 USD - actually it was a little less when I ordered last night)

Amazon also removes VAT although it doesn't for some titles. Probably a glitch but it doesn't amount to all that much. In my case, the VAT was not removed for the Hostel titles.

You also pay Amazon's shipping, of course. You can save on that by buying a bunch of titles on one order. Those of you in the UK get free super saver shipping (but have to pay VAT).

There are many more that are better titles than these but I already have them.

Six of those were part of the 3 for 2 deal and I also pre-ordered the set of the four original Batman movies which is at a great price and not yet up for pre-order in the US.

Now it is vital to be sure the British BDs will play on Region A players. Most British BDs, but not all, do. You can usually find out if a BD is region free here:

Re: Amazon.co.uk 3 for 2 blu-ray deal

There are some great deals to be had for sure. Someone at AVS mentioned there is a possibility that SD extra content might not play since it could be PAL. Anyone know about this? I can get "Run Lola Run", "Close Encounters" and "Life of Brian" for under $12.00 each shipped. Only hesitating on the extras question.

edit... Okay, it seems my question is addressed in this thread: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/hd-talk/546...-part-2-a.html

Seems like there could be a slight chance for problems.
