profits and/or revenues are up. they can't afford to give things away forever.

With all the newbies who have bought their first DVD player in the last year
who need to build libraries and are clueless enough to pay $24.99 for a disc, there's
little incentive for the prices to come down. The laws of supply and demand are
working as designed.

And as far as the online stores, they know that they can't buy loyalty.

Be patient. When the discs start piling up, there will be deals.

No offense to you, but it seems like people having been saying this, or predicting the "drying up" of coupons every since I've been on this site. Of course e-companies could not continue to give away stuff like they once did, but I still think you can find decent deals online.

No longer will you get movies for less than $5 regularly, but you can get better deals than in regular stores (especially on lesser known titles). And discs are more plentiful, which helps keep down costs. Just look at how many previously viewed DVDs places like Blockbuster sell now compared to a few years ago.

Also, some of the discs I purchased 1-2 years ago using a 10 off 25 coupon, are now selling for less than I paid because of price reductions. True, some of the crazy deals we got back then are hard to find, but I believe I'm probably paying about the same, or even less now on a per disc average, than I did back then, thanks to the availability of used discs, CH DVD Club and lower MSRPs.
