For those that missed the Amazon sale, Borders.com is now offering this set for $61.79 w/free shipping. Two caveats, though: they'll charge you immediately and you cannot cancel the order once it's been placed.
Cees: I would suspect it's a simple case of amazon reacting to the borders.com price. Amazon seems to be very responsive to competitive pricing lately. They don't seem to want to be undersold. But as soon as borders' price goes back up...watch for amazon's to go back up, too!
Lately, it seems as if amazon sets prices in reaction to the weekly flyers from Best Buy, for example. It makes sense if they believe that everyone is doing deep research on pricing of software titles (like some of us make a habit of...
)...but I would think they'd probably want to temper that against those who just buy from them because that's what they're used to.
Based on the Bits review, our own RAH's restoration track record, and Amazon's incredible price tag, this has now been ordered. Not that I really needed anything other than RAH's participation along with my love for the movies (yes, even #3 though it is a markedly lesser product in comparison to its brethren), but the combination of all the factors makes this a no-brainer even in these tough economic conditions!
It looks like Best Buy is going to have this in-store for $69.99. I only use the phrase "looks like" because BB has been known to engage in regional pricing differences. They are also going to have a "Quote Book" on-pack.
And, it looks like most other retailers will be in the $75 to $80 range in-store.
Just canceled my order with Amazon and ordered at Tower. It's in stock, and "ships in 12 hours". In my experience with Tower, I usually receive my Blu-ray orders 3 or 4 days after it ships (using their standard shipping which is free on orders of $25 or more).
