    Each order is limited to a total pre-sale price of $100. However, if you have multiple e-mail addresses you can open multiple accounts, even if all of your shipments are to the same address.

    These are great sales after you learn how to plough through their website. FoxConnect's navigation is not the most user-friendly. I just picked up Cavalcade (1933), A Letter to Three Wives (1948) and Prometheus (2012) in blu, among others, for $8.00/ea., no shipping cost or taxes.

    I'm glad I checked the email I use for Fox connect. I snagged Cavalcade, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir and Viva Zapata!

    This was a great sale. I got Sunrise, Inn of the Sixth Happiness, Battle of Britain and Cavalcade for $30.48 delivered. I had Sunrise on my Amazon wish list at $25 + by itself alone for months.

    Picked up both Eliza Kazan sets as well as Three Faces of Eve, Inn of the Sixth Happiness, Sunrise, Carmen Jones, and Call of the Wild. 13 catalog blu-ray tiles for under $90, not too shabby if I don't say so myself.

    Yeah, it's a very clunky website. I can never get it to work with Firefox. I also hate the fact that in the alphabetical listings every title which begins with the word "The" is listed under "T."

    They're killing me, also. I think they have had them every Thursday for the last four weeks and each week they add more product.

    Yeah it's a great sale but OMG will they ever fix that site. Everytime I use it I have more problems with it. Almost not worth the trouble.

    I looked at getting some Blus but their site has up to 4 duplicates on many many titles and the only difference is price or cover art, maybe. How am I supposed to know which version to buy? I don't want to get stuck with a recalled or superceded version that they are trying to dump through this site.

    Hard to know -- sometimes they are just similar items with different Artwork or a unique slipcover. Sometimes one if the single disc set and another is a Combo Pack. Sometimes it looks like they are just flat duplicate. unfortunately it seems to be up to the buyer to check the artwork with the release sites and make their own comparisons.

    UA 90th Anniversary Prestige Collection (90 Titles) for $14.99 + shipping.

    http://www.foxconnect.com/ua-90th-anniversary-prestige-collection-90-titles.html

    No idea when this went up or how long it's good for. Sounds like a mistake, but I don't think so and my order went through. If there's one thing FoxConnect knows, it's how to price merchandise to fly off the shelves, and I've benefited from their deals in the past.

    This isn't something I ever would have purchased at anything approaching regular price, even back in the DVD days. But I browsed down the list of titles, and for the price of one Blu-ray, I'm adding more than a dozen long-desired DVD titles from my want list (which have yet to make an appearance on Blu-ray) to my collection. I'll transfer them to separate cases (after making sure they play okay -- could be important in these kinds of sets!) and give the rest away. Everyone's a winner.
