    It was listed at $48.99cdn (which is still a good price, but include shipping to a US address, the overall price will around $38-$40 depending on the exchange rate).

    Come on exchange rate! At least Amazon doesn't charge your CC until it's time to ship, and they make it easy to cancel an order.

    DDD has it for 41.88 with free shipping.

    I will just wait until release day and buy it so I can have it on that day. Also, it's likely Best Buy will have a special "bonus disc" for this as they did for Indy. That bonus disc will be selling on Ebay for 20-25.00 which means this set may only end up costing me about 20.00 as it did for Indy. [​IMG]

    Is Deep Discount DVD a secure site anymore? I no longer see the little padlock that's supposed to be there.

    Yes, I just got the padlock and if you look where the URL is at, you will see it start with "https" which indicates secure socket layer (which is the commonly used security protocol).

    I just think I will want to buy it at 11:00am at BEst Buy on release date just to have it. I will not wait for any shipping or risk box set abuse by the shippers.

    Um, this will probably end up being a midnight seller for a lot of stores.

    You don't think that:

    Best Buy (Store 49)
    2103 North Veterans Parkway
    Bloomington, IL 61704

    will do a midnight sale? Don't you have any other competitors? How about:

    Circuit City #3168
    1500 East Empire Street Suite 1A
    Bloomington, IL 61701

    or:

    Sam Goody
    Eastland Mall, Space 46/47
    1615 E Empire St
    Bloomington, IL 61701

    You can't tell me that:

    Wal-Mart Supercenter Store #3459
    2225 West Market ST.
    Bloomington, IL 61701

    won't be open at midnight.

    Walmart does not get its movies out at midnight here. The other stores will not be open. Only real competitors are Target and CC - both do not do midnight sales. Maybe they will for Star Wars who knows. They did not do it for the $300 PS2. So I doubt a $50 movie will keep them open.

    This is OT, Sorry to the OP.

    Chat OT all you want, as this thread is now obsolete - Amazon.ca have corrected their mistake. I hope some Canadian/international customers got it for CDN$ 48.99 (43.99 w/coupon), I know I did. [​IMG]
