For those who have a Frys Electronics near them, they have a ton of BDs on sale not on their ad. Here's what I picked up today:

MIB 3 3D Blu Ray $22.99
Green Hornet 3D $9.99


And there were a whole bunch of BDs priced at $10 and $5, and not all unheard of titles either (Charlie's Angels was one I recalled seeing).

Prices a bit high for a 10 episode first season, but I may pick up Continuum...

Things look great this week, Mike. Thanks for the continued hard work every week. :)

I pre-ordered Lincoln 2-disc Blu from Amazon. I'm hoping they price match everyone before release date.

It usually would have happened by now.
I wouldn't worry too much. I don't remember which title, but I had one just a few weeks ago that they didn't match until a few days later. I just got an e-mail, and a credit back to my account without having to do anything.

I was hoping for a better price on Parental Guidance, but it'll probably be on the under-$10 shelf at Target soon enough.

Are those $19.99 TV sets at BB DVD or Blu?

Thanks, Mike!

I've got Sun Shines Bright in my "to order" queue at Amazon.

I am very tempted...

It would be a blind buy...but anything I've read about it intrigues me. Especially the part about John Ford calling it his personal favorite amongst all his films.

I'm cynical enough to (intuitively) suspect that a savvy marketer could find a similar quote or comment about any number of Ford's films - but I'm pre-sold, anyway, just as a Ford completist.

Glad to have the Round-Up back!

Amazon has matched Best Buy's price on Enterprise: S1 and my order showed up today. However, Fry's has it in their ad for $59.99...I've just used the "tell us about a lower price" link on the Amazon detail page to report the Fry's price...if enough other people do that, hopefully they'll match it.

If that doesn't work, I think I'll try to get Best Buy to match Fry's price and get the bonus $10 gift card and return the Amazon order.

And I shouldn't have worried. Amazon has dropped it's prices on Lincoln to $22.99 (2-disc Blu) and $27.99 (4-disc Blu).

Yeah it's funny. Amazon used to always have the lowest (or matched the lowest) price at preorder but I've noticed the last few months or so they've had abnormally high preorder prices, only to drop them on release date. No idea why they think that's a good idea when with their low price guarantee they're going to honor the lower price anyway when they ship it. :huh:

Just got the Amazon e-mail about a refund for Enterprise. I'll be getting $14.09 back on my GC...to use toward TNG S3 in a few weeks. And I didn't even have to ask for it!

Plan on doing the BB deal for $25 GC for $100 purchase of BDs w/ some catchup TV titles like a couple of Fringe seasons and maybe some recent releases that dropped to $15 (and maybe the Men that Built America History channel set as well). Belated extra thanks for the new WRU, Mike. _Man_
