Amazon's Blu-ray Deals of the Week affect Warner's Fringe: The Complete Series boxset and five Academy Award winners/nominees from the Weinstein Company. Through January 25th, Amazon is offering 48% to 58% discounts off these titles' respective MSRPs.
Fringe, on the other hand, is a sci-fi procedural from Star Trek collaborators J. J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci; it focuses on four members (Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, and Jasika Nicole) of a top-secret FBI unit that specializes in solving crimes outside the realm of the physical world as we know it.
Every week, their operation has to contend with not only dangers far beyond the spectrum of normal human experience but also a shadowy corporation taking a keen interest in their cases.
The five-season collection features commentaries on selected episodes, interviews with cast and crew members, deleted scenes, and extended episodes.
The Fringe bundle is $82.99, or $114.51 less than its SRP of $197.50.
These deals expire at 12 AM PST/3 AM EST next Sunday, January 26th.
@amazon: Just because you say it's a deal doesn't mean we actually believe you anymore. BTW, learn how to pricematch! Pricematch plus shipping, isn't pricematching, unless your own shipping is free, even less so when your shipping prices and free shipping minimum are the highest around, higher even than competitors with much higher overhead than yours.
How do you go from last weeks deal to this? Seriously, it's sometimes hard to believe today's amazon is the same store we used to trust so explicitly that we bought everything but food and clothes from just a few short years ago. It's getting mighty hard to justify prime these days.
This is the problem and why the blu-ray sections at Best Buy and other retail stores are shrinking. They should have never forced the $24.99 - $29.99 price range for new movies. They should have stuck with the DVD model of $19.99 at the most for a new release.
This would have allowed for more people to jump aboard, take value in their own physical collections, and the Blu-ray industry would have had a more robust customer base.
They try to peddle this out now as a $17.99 "deal" and they wonder why the product doesn't move.
