Amazon is having a special promotion linked to the Blu-ray release of Avatar. If you order this movie simultaneously with another eligible Fox action title, a $3 discount will be applied to your order. Thus, you could buy Avatar and, for instance, Fight Club or Independence Day for only $30.98 after discount. This offer is valid through May 4, and it cannot be combined with other offers.
Why is everyone upset sure $3.00 isn't much but think of it this way 95% of people on this site will buy Avatar in it's first week regardless of price 24.99-19.99 so be happy that you can save few bucks on a older release that you may not of picked up yet.
Give me a break FOX Studio. Ha ha ha haaaa LOL. Fox why don't you check the deal "Disney" Gave with their "Toy Story' 1&2. Got a very good break with price at Amazon.com and through "Disney's rewards I got Two tickets for me and my mate worth $17 for "Toy Story" 3. Shame on you FOX. Fox Studio is very cheap.
Dr. Skill.... we are here talking about how cheap FOX is. And I am very sure almost everyone in here have already pr-ordered "AVATAR" that is including me. Since I have a region free Blu-ray player I have ordered broth ( Amazon USA and Amazon UK with the steel book and will give the UK version Blu-ray to my nephew in Spain and I will keep the steel book ) So this is not about buying Avatar. We all will buy it for sure. This is about how cheap FOX Studio can be. Hope you will understand it. Cheers.
Fox is not cheap. As any other business in a capitalist country is only getting the most out of their product. If you believe that the reason other movies are discounted is because certain studios are "nicer", you are wrong.
nice one Fox, especially your movie made $2.5B worldwide and you giving us $3 off for a movie that about to come to home video that will continue to get more $$$ for you? Disney's movies can't even reach $1B(except POTC) but they giving us a big discount than you.
Instead of either accepting it or not instead, the majority of people whine that it is not enough. This seems like an odd way to encourage companies to offer discounts in the future.
The logic of this attitude escapes me?
Thanks Spock but that's because you're applying logic where logic doesn't exist. Being offended by the cheapness of people that have a LOT of money is not logical, it's indicative of people that work hard for their money. Meanwhile as the Avatar money continues to roll in, Fox keeps redefining the meaning of the word enough.
I'd finish that sentence but I was recently boinked by the forum police so you'll have to fill in the blank.
By the way calling a company out for being cheap is the absolute best way (Even better than not buying their product) of encouraging them to loosen the purse strings and give loyal customers something to talk about.
How about you ( FOX ) save your Three Dollars.. and, still we will buy the "AVATAR" Blu-ray anyway. Look at the pre-order for "Avatar" Blu-ray. It is over 52% best ever for Blu-ray... usually it is around 15%. ( Bluray.com article ) says. Even without the Three Dollars from "FOX" sales for "AVATAR" will be great.
I think there is one thing you all are missing: Avatar will remain at $24.99 even after opening week. This $3 discount combo offer for $35.98 is the deal ($17.99 per movie), after which the regular price will apply. It's either you want the deal or not. Take it or leave it.
How about we all realize that it's not FOX that's giving the discount? It's amazon. So, don't be mad at FOX for giving such a low discount. Be happy that amazon is making the offer. Be mad at FOX for setting MSRP of Avatar so high to begin with. LOL
MeE-Your choice of words seems to convey that you are missing the skills needed to communicate in a mature manner. Skipping your childish use of language, your lack of understanding business marketing strategies, including why companies use them, make your remarks about FOX ignorant. Unless FOX has a valid business reason to copy Disney's program it would be foolish of them to do so. What works as part of a business plan for one company does not mean it will work for another. In reality, it often fails to get the same results.
You also repeatedly call FOX cheap and imply that because they seem to be making a large amount of money on Avatar they somehow owe you. They don't, how did you ever get this idea?
Holy crap, guys... what's with the pissing and moaning? You can get Avatar along with another decent $13.99 Fox title... and you get $3 off. The preorder guarantee still applies for Avatar, which most likely will drop to around $19.99 for release.
So, that's $19.99 (likely) for Avatar and $10.99 for Fight Club or Sunshine or something. Not amazing... but a pretty solid deal if you want those titles. *shrug*
"Holy crap, guys... what's with the pissing and moaning?"
That's what people do on here. Either that or discuss how "demo" worthly a disc is. Or complain about grain. Just look at the posts on the BD Lord of the Rings set, or discussion about the Battlestar Galactica complete season casing to see some fine examples of ranting.
I personally want to piss and moan on the fact that Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo hasn't been released in high-def yet. To each their own
