Got it.. Was sold out by the time I finished checkout though. Wish I knew this this morning and waited 2 minutes before showering.. I took my shower and was on the computer within 8 minutes and it already had sold out.
yes I'd say i hit it in about 0.5 sec after it appeared. took about 20 sec. to load the 15min. countdown to buy
of course i didnt factor in i still had to spend 0.01 cent for free shipping... so i got Outlander Bluray for 5.99 blind buy. I am a happy camper.
I think it varies depending on where you are, but who knows. When I got to the lightning deal page it said only 7% was claimed and it had 3:58:41 left. Hard to say....but either way it went very quick!
I got it too, but I didn't have to add anything extra to get free super saving shipping. My total showed 34.99 and the super saver discount AS WELL AS the lightning deal discount were taken off at checkout. So my order total was $24.99 with free super saving shipping.
Geez... that was INSANE! I clicked on it literally the second the deal came online, and it was already 53% claimed! Thank goodness I scored my copy. A friend of mine sitting nearby was only a minute later than I was, and he was 500+ on the waitlist!
@swissmr: you don't (or didn't have to add anything to get Free Super Saver Shipping) as ulri4651 said.
Actually the lightning deal shows as a promotion/discount. if you check your order details, you will notice that it shows Back To The Future is at $34.49, so it qualifies for Free Super Saver Shipping by itself.
Please ignore my previous rant - I was 22nd on the waitlist and a little window popped up telling me I had 2 minutes to buy a copy - I ended up scoring after all. Who were these 22 people who let a copy sit in their basket without checking out? Oh well, too bad for them. heheheheh
Oh your right it still shows the price as $34.49 that's why I didn't need to add anything else to get the free shipping. I thought that was strange but that makes sense. I was like what costs a penny...lol. Decided to try it and it did give the shipping. Awesome.
got it too... was ready to click on it the second the countdown ended... it's great that this qualifies for free shipping by itself... didn't matter because i'm trying amazon prime for the last week since there are many deals... that are less than $25.00... i think this is the end of a very sheap but expensive blu-ray week...
Experienced the slight lag the moment I hit add to cart. But I was able to get both Home Alone and Back To The Future. Awesome! The status on both movies are now shipping soon and will be receiving both on Dec. 1st.
Got BTTF and Stargate; clicked both as soon as they went active (glad it wasn't coded to make me pick one at a time). Geeze, they went fast. Now I wonder if the movies themselves will provide as much enjoyment as snagging the deal??
i clicked to buy BTTF when it said that 80% were claimed. it put me on the waitlist! wow. but i got the deal. still, it was only a $10 difference between the lightning deal and the normal reduced priced--so for those of you who weren't able to snag a copy in the lightning deal, don't feel too bad.
yeah i know that now, i only saw the need to spend 0.01 more to qualify ad i was real itchy to get Outlander all weekend for 5.99, it was a good excuse. Plus with a countdown i didnt want anything 'glitching' and wanted to check-out asap.
I clicked on it as soon as it popped up,had it in my cart,paid for it and it charged me the original sale price of $34.49.I thought it would revert to the $24.99 when I paid for it but it didn't.Called CS and they couldn't do anything about it besides cancel the order.
I missed the BTTF deal, sent an email to Amazon and they are going to give me the discount. That has to be one of the quickest deals ever. Was on waitlist for over an hour before it told me they were sold out.
I had the page open on my android phone. As soon as I clicked on add to cart it gave me a delay before it said you have 15 min. to check out. Plus this morning I got an e-mail with a 3 dollar off for pre-ordering a certain blu. nto sure which one. So applied it to BTTF and paid only 21.99 shipped.
I just happened to be online at the right moment, clicked immediately, and scored! I was really waiting to get the UK version because of the alleged lousy US packaging, but for $25 for the set I can live with the shoddy packaging.
WOOW I just got of the phone with amazon and I told them I had a problem earlier this morning with my internet connection, and that I couldn't place my order then they got sold out, So they still give me the Cyber Monday deal that were sold out. Thank You amazon
For the Home Alone collection Bluray for $14.57.
The Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy (+ Digital Copy) [Blu-ray] for $26.45
I bought it for $32.77 on Friday and then that night when I saw it was going to be a Lightning deal today I tried to cancel but they would not let me because they said it had shipped. It actually did not ship until Saturday. I was fortunate to get on this morning for the $24.99 and was going to return the other, but thanks to R3PO I called and they did issue me an $8.00 refund on my account. Now I can give one as a gift.
It was a mess this morning as I did hit the Buy button immediately and by the time I closed my order they were gone. I wonder how many they had?
For those that bought BTTF in the past few days they HAVE to pricematch the best offer within 30 days and that the best deal just happened to come from them (Amazon); or threaten to return the item and usually the reps will give in. The reps will not see the lowest price and may even say it was DVD; Explain to them it was a lightning deal on today between 8:40am PST and 1230pm PST; Explain to Amazon that the order closed before you could cancel and return to rebuy under new deal. The aforementioned Credit should hit your acct in 3-5 business days.
I needed a second set (gift) and found virtually the same price at Deep Discount. After I bought one set on Amazon @ $24.99 I was able to buy a set at Deep for $26.25. They are running it @ $35.00 less 25%...$26.25. I don't know how long they'll offer it at this price, but forget Amazon's wait list, go to Deep and you can still get a hell of a deal.
