Found a good deal on a movie?

#1

Post by Knaldskalle » May 10th, 2014, 12:29 am

I just bought the complete Looney Tunes Golden Collection 1-6 on DVD from Amazon.com for $48.49. That's about $100 off the list price (which they never follow, but still). Apparently the offer is only good today (5/9/2014), so if you're interested, you need to pull the trigger fast. It's 24 discs in total, so at this price it's around $2/disc.

I would've shared earlier, only I just found out about it.

If you find good deals on DVDs and Blu-Rays, use this thread to notify the rest of us, we might want some of it as well... :thumbsup:

You're not kidding about that being a good deal -- I priced that set on and off for the last couple of years (hoping to get the preschooler interested in old Looney Tunes), and the price has always been a turn-off...until now, maybe! Thanks!

Which reminds me, if you're into price tracking on Amazon the "camelizer" plugin for Firefox (or Chrome) is a great tool. It'll give you a price history chart (so you can see whether that "deal" is really a deal) and you can also set a desired price for a item and it'll shoot you an email when the price drops to or below your set price (and you can set different prices for Amazon, third-party "marketplace" sellers or used). I use it all the time.

It also works on newegg.com and bestbuy.com.

Gee whiz, thanks! I've never been so sophisticated before -- I typically just went to a few sites and checked the price when I'd remember. (It's been quite a few months since my last check, though, what with late-stage pregnancy, the baby, all that stuff. Before that, I was checking pretty often.) This looks much trickier, but for items I'm really serious about, it might come in handy!

From the UK it is about 6 dollars postage and the item is about 64 dollars equivalent in the UK so still cheaper to import but with the small risk of customs duties so probably not going to do it although I imported before ok without that.

Well, in all fairness, I did make a point of writing "amazon.com" instead of just "Amazon". I've seen great deals on Amazon.co.uk as well (the Universal Classic Monsters box set on Blu-Ray is £26.00 ($44) vs. $77.00 on the US site, for instance).

50% off of Wes Anderson's Criterion releases and his favourite Criterion films. It'll be cool if this deal is for Canada as well. Either way I'm still gonna save up for July's sale, although $14 for the Friends of Eddie Coyle is tempting.

I'm almost certain Eddie Coyle won't be upgraded to Blu-ray anytime soon. So. ya know. and for anyone interested in The Earrings of Madame de... I'd recommend nabbing the DVD or the French Blu-ray (region-free + English friendly, at least for the film). Criterion really screwed the pooch on the Blu-ray "upgrade" transfer. DNR'd so bad it looks like an impressionist painting for some sequences. (This is not news. This is well documented pretty much everywhere)

and $37 is pretty great for the Imamura set.

Not exactly sharing a good deal here, but is it safe to assume that Barnes and Noble will have a Criterion sale in July? If so I set my budget to $200 excluding shipping. I'm definitely getting Seconds, Paris Texas and All That Heaven Allows. Still gotta think about the rest.

I've heard it'll last the whole month. First to thirty-first. But, just rumors so... who knows. But most likely, yes. Sale in July.

It's usually that way, all of July (although B&N isn't doing too well financially, these days...).

[edit: Oh wait, isn't there usually something in November as well?]

I think there is a sale in November as well. This one is until the 28th. I just spent like $200 but my brother owes me that much and is most likely paying me back this month anyways so it's all good.

What I got:

All That Heaven Allows
Lonesome
Paris, Texas
Design for Living
Eyes Without a Face
Seconds
Pierre Etaix box set
The Letter Never Sent
L'eclisse

If we could do local purchases maybe visiting Milestone films for the meeting would be cool. I wouldn't mind getting Piccadilly for $10. I gotta watch Eternal Love, Dragon Painter, Evageline and La terre as well. And also, people would be insane if they wouldn't buy Hindle Wakes.

"Lad isbjørnene danse (1990)" on official list "Bodil Award Winners for Best Danish Film" is available for steaming on TV2 Play.
I guess it's without subtitles and that geoblocking apply.

It's 29 DKK for 24 hours, but i rather own it.
If anyone finds it elsewhere, please let me know.

The UK Hitchcock Bluray collection is available for £ 27,80. That makes it 2 £ a movie (there are 14 movies in this collection, many of which among Hitch's best). In euros, it cost me € 40 with shipping to France...
It looks like it's region free, so maybe some will find it interesting.

that is a great price since the US edition (same set, different packaging + North by Northwest) was recently heavily discounted to just under $100 (78euro/62 british moneys)


and yeah it is definitely region free.

Yep, but it only applies to the most expensive item (and only one item per order). Especially great for box sets but at least 4$ for a regular BD.

And it's 20% of the 50% (60% off in total).

I ordered L'avventura, L'Eclisse, Deserto Rosso and Orpheus :) (+ La Notte MoC as it looks nearly the same as the CC)

Barnes & Noble actually has several good coupons floating around right now.

I'm not sure if you have to be a member to use it, but the code BFRIDAY14 gets you an additional 30% off a single item on their site through the weekend. I was able to pick up the Les Blank set for $46 shipped (or you could pick up the Tati set for the same price.)

Ordered the Les Blank box set and a couple of Eclipse sets. I'm wondering now if it would of been cheaper thought to put each item as a separate order and applied the coupon code or is it just a one time deal.

Depends on the shipping, I suppose. If the coupon was saving you per item more than the cost of shipping per item.


and I think if you're ordering online you can make multiple accounts (multiple email addresses) and use the code again. (I think, and the fine print seems to suggest that you can only use it once per 'person' which I would assume means per account online).

I doubt shipping to Australia would be less than the cost of the saving.

Thank you guys! Thanks to your coupons, I just bought The Complete Jacques Tati for a total of $44 - MSRP is $125. That's not bad for a set that came out a month ago.
