I placed my initial order and I am now trying to decide how many Star Wars titles to order.

my thought is get a few now and the others when they do the 40% off sale again?

or can I do another 40% off order in a week or so???
In the spirit of the thread -- I'm getting a bad feeling about this. Are the promo codes working today? When you signed up did you get the page with 5 for $1, possibly a Blanket, and Free Shipping or some 4 for $1 page? Without the promotional code that leaves you with up to 4 or 5 full priced commitments which can really harm the overall value. If that's critical, you may still have time to abort the signup before it goes to processing.

Someone on Bluray.com said they just tried and the promo codes weren't working like yesterday and Monday

I’m showing the same. I’m on the hook to buy 4 titles at full price.

(Nerd hat on.) It’s actually not - the BD is the correct version. When they did the DVD, a wipe that was present in the theatrical version was (accidentally?) changed to a cut. The BD restores the wipe as present in theatrical release.

...not that I’ve watched the movie too many times or anything :D
There were two versions of ROTS running simultaneously in theaters in 2005 and I made a point to see both. The 35mm version (screen wipe to Anakin's metal hand on Mustafar, Padme doesn't take his hand at the wedding) and the digital projection version (hard cut to his hand on Mustafar, Padme does take his hand at the wedding.)

So the DVD did provide a version seen in theaters. The Blu-ray does not since Lucas added new dialogue of all the clones shouting as they raid General Grievous' hideout on Utapau.

And now TFA, TLJ, and RO as well with RO apparently having the best transfer of the entire lineup.
Not surprising. It was also the best looking Blu-ray out of the whole lineup, AND (IMO) the most visually beautiful Star Wars film ever.

On another note, Best Buy charged my credit card for my Skywalker Saga box preorder yesterday. Looks like deliveries will be on time.

I just signed up for the Disney movie club. With the 60% offer I should be able to purchase most of the films for $14 each.

I had to buy quite a bit to join though.

for me it was worth it though.

I probably have 100 or so that do not work in Canada. I keep hoping I will find a miracle code to use first that will let me use them in Canada.

My copy, purchased from DMC, arrived Thursday - surprisingly, well ahead of release day. I'm looking at doing a SW marathon this weekend and watching everything but the TV stuff.
