heads up..amazon promotional...
« on: Aug 28, 2007 at 02:10 PM »
I found out from another site that there is a promotion in amazon. Looks like certain titles both hddvd and blu-ray are included in this promo. Its like a buy 3 for the price of 2. With some  of us getting additional 10 percent discount wow.. So far if you compute it, its like 13 to 15 dollars a title. Some I got are Crank, T1, t2, t3, Casino, superman the movie, 12 monkeys

Great deal to me.

Blu-ray has it too.  There are 105 titles included.  This is a great way to add something to the library.  ;D

I really wish we were allowed to mix and match... I only really want Casino Royale for Blu-ray, and Shaun of the Dead and Serenity for HD-DVD!

Yep good timing to enhance our HD movie library  ;)
Sayang I bought/pre-order some titles too early e.g. 300, blood Diamond,... :-[
But luckily I also delayed some titles, thus now can take advantage of the great offer... :D

Wanted to get Troy but guess I will just wait for the Director's cut.

Amazon Targets HD DVD, Blu-ray Fans With Series of Next-Gen Sales Incentives (UPDATED)

Update (2:30PM ET, Aug 29): It looks like Amazon wasn't kidding when they said these were limited time offers. It's unclear whether these deals are coming to a close or whether it's simply a blip in the system, but at this moment, links to several of the offers outlined below are no longer active. Meanwhile, we've received conflicting reports of the various offers still showing up at checkout.

The country's largest online retailer has unveiled a series of new deals that seem designed to engage both current and would-be early adopters.

Unprecedented in its scope, the promotion includes six separate sales incentives for next-gen disc supporters -- three for each format. A summary of each of the deals follow below:

HD DVD Promotions

Three HD DVD Discs for The Price of Two
Mirroring the "three for two" Blu-ray deal, consumers can choose any three HD DVD discs for the price of two. Disc choice is limited to a pre-selected list of 55 discs, which includes such hits as '300,' 'The Departed,' and 'Happy Feet.' Complete Details.

Buy an Xbox 360 HD DVD Player and Get Eight HD DVD Discs Free
Targeted at existing Xbox 360 owners, this deal combines the free in-the-box copy of 'King Kong' with the HD DVD camp's "Five Free Discs" offer, plus two additional HD DVDs from Amazon. Complete Details.

Buy a Toshiba HD DVD Player and Get Eight HD DVD Discs Free
Similar to the Xbox/Eight Disc Bundle deal above, this deal combines the HD DVD camp's "Five Discs Free" promo with Amazon's own three disc bundle for a total of eight free discs with purchase of any of Toshiba's second-gen HD DVD players. Complete Details.

Amazon hasn't said how long this overall promotion will last, although the text in the individual deals indicates that each is a limited time offer.

Huhuhu I only manage to buy 6..suppose to buy a few more today but the offer expires na... :'(

In the HD forum, a member says according to Amazon, "we only recently learned from our supplier that we would not be receiving more inventory," which is why the promotion was pulled.  :-\   :(

Yup I received this same email because I was trying to talk to amazon on my orders on Mid august, which is only few days away from this promo, that hopefully with their kind consideration they will credit me the difference of this buy 3 for price of 2..This is the same email they responded to me (which I dont really understand, Oh well)...I hope those that we ordered in the promo will push thru...
