    My WAC Blu wishlist has become unwieldy. I should be able to trim it down a bit. :)

    So far, there doesn't seem to be any indication that this sale is happening on their site.

    Are there any details on this deal?

    It’s on now. For Blu-ray releases May 1st 2017 is the cut off. Anything released after that date is not included in the sale.

    I agree with you. I can understand not including November releases, I can understand not including October releases, and I can even understand not including September releases if they have to. What I do not understand is why they are essentially giving us the same cutoff as their July 4 for $44 sale. I can only hope they might at least include more recent titles on Monday, otherwise the sale is really only appealing to those who were not "caught up" after July's sale.

    Come to think of it, is it just me, or have the wbshop Black Friday sales on WAC titles been terrible ever since wbshop was sold to Bolder Road (and now Araca)? Last year was the only one that seemed decent, since it at least included titles released up through Sept. 2016, even though Amazon was offering the better price. The year before seemed like it was as bad as this year's sale.

    Does this one include free shipping? The one in July did.

    Cool, thanks Robert!

    A few weeks ago, I was eagerly awaiting a sale as I'm going through another Jimmy Stewart phase and the Archives have a lot of his earlier films that I've never seen on DVD-R. Then, TCM decided to show like a dozen of them last week. Between that and the lack of the newest BD titles on this sale, I'll spend a lot less than I thought I would.

    I suppose I should thank them. Saved me $44 I didn't need to spend.

    Not even bothering to look after reading about that cutoff date.

    I still managed to spend $77. Had the sale included the last 6 months of releases, God knows how many hundreds I would have spent! :eek:

    I still was able to spend $88.00 - Keep in mind for these sales ONCE you've met the 4 initial units purchase requirement - the selections are $11.00 each from then on - no Minimum of $100.00 for free shipping ..

    Any recommendations for any potential Christmas movies that WA has, either on Blu or DVD-R?

    I was disappointed about the cutoff date, but still found 6 movies to get. $66 in the Brothers' pockets.
