I hope Astro Podium goes below the Php 199 price level, especially for the new-ish imported Vivas, Magnas and Warners.

From SLEX go C5. U-turn under Ortigas Ave flyover to go other direction.  Right on Julia Vargas.  Straight through Meralco Ave and then turn right at ADB ave, you will see Podium shortly on the left side (You have to make a U-turn again in the next island break).

Here's a pic of the mall for your visual reference:

Stocks are aplenty for FF4 Silver Surfer, Die Hard, Simpsons and Ratatouille.  Yun Pirates na 2 disc na slip case ang medyo delikado.  Limited lang daw stocks.

The 2 disc of Die Hard 4.0 wala pa daw stock.  Baka over the weekend magkaron.

Good luck!

Wow, that looks like a very interesting title selection that's available at dirt cheap prices. To think we used to wait for these sales to get titles at Php 333!

Schindler's List (2DVD) is down to P375.  There are a lot of P150 titles there, down from the recent P199 markdown.  Too many to list.  This sale is very worth going for.

I was hoping they'd lower it down further, since it's also Php 375 in other Astro stores.

I wonder why Superman Returns is still at P550?  300 is still at P599.  The Departed is also at P550.  With everything else marked so low, I wonder why Superman still maintain a high pricetag?

Bought the following:

Ghost Rider 2 Disc
Schindler's List 2 Disc
Stealth 2 Disc
Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer 2 Disc
King Kong 2 Disc
Under Siege 2

Will return King Kong though, I can't believe they actually placed the "2 disc" sticker on the dvd cover itself.

Other notable buys in the sale (which I didn't avail of):

Spider-Man 2 (Collector's DVD Gift Set) Php 550 --> please confirm if my eyes did not deceiving me
The Da Vinci Code (2-Disc Special Edition) Php 375
The Da Vinci Code (Limited Edition Gift Set) Php 1650

New Viva titles at Php 275:

The Namesake
Underdog
The Lookout
The Invisible
Day Watch
The Game Plan
Ratatouille
The Simpsons Movie
Die Hard 4.0 (Single disc)



None or sold out stocks of:

Spider-Man 3 (Two-Disc Special Edition) no stocks
Die Hard 4.0 (Two-Disc Special Edition) no stocks
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (Two-Disc Limited Edition) Php 375 sold out


Pathetic marked down prices by:

Warner --> didn't look much at their box sets, but most other titles retained their sale price at other stores; and if you're looking for marked down prices on new titles, you're in for a big disappointment. The Warner table is noticeably devoid of bargain hunters.


Sale showdown between:

Viva & Magna --> even the reps seem to be having a slight argument. I was lurking around near the Magna rep, who at one time, was in a light conversation with who I believe to be the Viva rep. I think the Viva rep was questioning the Magna rep on how they got to lower their prices to ridiculously LOW levels. I didn't eavesdrop too long, but it seems the Magna lady answered by saying that whenever Viva is having a nationwide sale, Magna is forced to lower their prices as well. Something like that.


The winner:

Magna --> it's a close tie with Viva, but on the whole, Magna offered the cheaper DVD deals between the two.


The verdict:

Personally, this is THE BEST Astro Sale ever! Prices have gone to record lows, you can't count how many costumers are carrying full shopping baskets (which can accomodate around 40 DVD's). Mucho kudos to Magna and Viva! And to Warner, please be generous next time. Warner used to be the darling of DVD sales. What's happening?
