    Most of the deals underwhelm me simply because I'm not interested in them or because I already own those that appeal to me. I may bite on the BD Hitchcock Universal collection at the 50% discount but the criticisms of the set by RAH and others have left a sour taste in my mouth. (EDIT: missed the UK Black Friday sale that would have put this at $80 or so - drat).

    Hopefully others will find items that appeal to them at bargain prices.

    Brave is a really good deal at $8.96 if you missed it on Thursday or at Walmart. I'm also hoping for a really good price on the Farscape: Complete Series set.

    $60 for Farscape Blu ray, that's pretty good. I'd love to jump on that and Trek TOS blu but I'm tapped.

    It was still 8.96 at Walmart today and the $6 coupon I think expires today -- so still possible to get 2 copies for $12.

    After the purchase I just made, I think I'm done. Between the Black Friday week sales and the pre-Cyber Monday deals this weekend, I've spent enough:
    ======================================================
    Total spent: $69.92
    A great deal coming along for Person of Interest on Blu-Ray would get me to bite again, but that's about it. Despite underwhelming headline deals, there's been some really good deals through price matches and what have you. Except for PoI, I basically got everything I'd held off until Black Friday sales for.

    Yes, I'd jump on Person of Interest if a great deal happened.

    Is there a calendar for the deals like last week to let you know what's going in sale when?

    Go to the 'movies & tv' department and the left hand column has a link to the Holiday calendar.

    I was hoping Dark Shadows would be $180 or something amazing like that. But they aren't even beating their price for a month or so ago. Same with BSG on blu, I got that for about $90 I believe, about a year or so ago. Awesome set. I'm on season 3 and still lovin' it.

    So now the Sherlock Blu-ray collection is going to be $35. I ordered it on Saturday's LD for about $20 more. They've already shipped it and I can't cancel it. :(

    .
    Talk to an upper level Customer Service and mention the FUBAR original announcement of 35 that changed to 56 and back to 35. Several people have reported getting a refund
    due to the Amazon confusion. Or order the new one and refuse delivery of the old one -- or return it and pay the reverse shipping if you don't feel comfortable with Return to sender..

    I did go ahead and order it tonight. I'll contact customer service and see about returning the other one. I have other items in the shipment so that makes refusing the shipment a no go.

    I need to just stop. On top of the order I had last night (moved Dollhouse S2 for a lower price and added Homeland S1), I found Lego Batman 2-which I missed out on last week-plus Boss S1 and Constantine.

    My first pre-Black Friday box arrived. In this box? About 10 hours of movies (extended LotR and Godfather 1-3).

    although I think LotR and Godfather will be far more than 10 hours.
    My first box came too. I'd forgotten everything I'd ordered but quickly got reminded. whooooa....
    *plans pre-Christmas visit to Dollar Tree for family gift shopping* They'll understand...

    Yeah, I was guesstimating, but LotR alone is prolly over 10 hours without extras.

    I was able to get the Sherlock collection yesterday and am very happy about that. Great price.
