Hey guys! First time post, long time blu-ray fan! Just wanted to let you guys know that Edward Scissorhands also works on this BOGO sale even though it is not listed! I ordered the three Die Hard movies and Edward as well. I tried other Fox titles, and they didn't seem to work.
And to oldmike, you have to get to the final stage of ordering before the discounts will be applied.
Prices are ridiculous on these movies!
COME ON FOX & AMAZON, SERIOUSLY, $28 BDís for $3-$10 DVDís?
What I hate most about the Amazon bogo's is I can see them coming because the movies in my cart all go up in price right before it happens... but with fox it's just horrible.
It's official - I'm never buying a Blu-ray the week it comes out anymore. I bought Harry Potter last week at Target, and lo and behold, at Best Buy it's one of the BOGO titles. And anyone who bought Die Hard the week of has got to be pretty mad by now (unless it was through amazon).
That being said, I do very much appreciate buy one get one sales (especially on high profile titles). Paying $14-15 per movie is not bad at all.
@oldmike "JaysDomain do you expet Blu-rays to be the same as DVDs in cost"
Did I say I expect them to be the same price as dvd, NO, but I sure dont expect old ass titles to be $28 when I can get newer BD movies for around $20+, and old titles from other studios for even less.
Make them $20, I wont complain, thats still 2-3 times more than the dvd versions, but $28 for some of these movies is just ridiculous.
You can defend the prices all you want, bogo or not, but it will still cost them sales and make people not want to upgrade to blu-ray when they see these prices in the store; dvd was not this bad and had more to offer at the time (changing from VHS).
Without the bogo I would never pay these prices for many of these movies!
These prices make me feel I am getting taken for my support to blu-ray and is causing me to slow down on purchases (I have a ton of blu-rays); I'll go get my lube and buy a few movies.
Did you guys realize that the price this time is $27.95 for most of the titles while other BOGO from Amazon was $19.95 avg.? Is Amazon gonna do this next BOGO sale or was it just FOX titles with that price?
Uh oh another BOGO, I have to resist the temptation this time. Need to save my money for Pirates 3 and Simpsons!
Oh by the way, Best Buy is having a BOGO right now too. Maybe you should post a "Less Green More Blu" about that too.
Here's the list of titles:
28 Weeks Later ($29.99)
Are We Done Yet? ($29.99)
The Condemned ($29.99)
The Departed ($29.99)
Fantastic 4: Rise Of The Silver Surfer ($34.99)
Harry Potter & Order Of The Phoenix Blu-Ray ($32.99)

Underworld: Evolution ($29.99)
Sale until December 22nd (Saturday)
The sale is in store and online and also comes with free shipping for online buys of Blu-Ray movies.
I was checking out the BDs at Fry's and came across "From the Earth to the Moon" SD for $17.99! Great deal for the 5-disc set. The only bad thing about Fry's is their shipping so I picked up LXG on BDR to help even it out. Fry's is basically 1/2 pricing a number of Fox BDs. I got mine for $13.99. For now, Amazon + free shipping is the best deal on Fox titles. Thanks Cyberknight for the Fry's heads-up. I've never shopped there before but I will look for deals there from now on.
I've sent this on to friends and family again for more potential gift ideas. It is down to the wire now
so this will be it before Christmas. I hope they have something like this for after Christmas sales.
You know, although these BOGOs are probably pretty good marketing ploys for getting new Blu-Ray supporters to buy into Blu-Ray and getting their catalog started, I'd say that this really kinda upsets me. I've already BOUGHT all of the Blu-Rays I want. It kinda undermines the entire process of buying a new title on the day it's released. We've already seen people stating in this topic that they will now be gun-shy about buying on day-of-release.
Don't you think a much better approach to getting new Blu-Ray supporters and higher sales would be better prices on new released titles? I fully understand that these BOGOs allow for headline news (which you wouldn't get if there was a simple price drop across the board) and you get to use the work "FREE" (which is always a great marketing ploy). But don't you think it would be much more enticing for someone on the fence about HD media if the title prices got a little closer to DVD prices?
Here are my thoughts: All of these BOGOs allow the individual retail prices to remain high, while still allowing for "Sales". Again, this is a marketing ploy. Especially when the prices on the product go up just to accomodate for the "sale". Second, I honestly feel like, after the war is over, there won't be anymore BOGOs and since the regular retail price is not being dropped now, then they won't have to remain low after the war. Therefore, we'll be "used to" to high price because of BOGOs, yet BOGOs won't be around after HD-DVD goes away. Inevitably, we're going to be stuck with the high prices.
What I see happening is this: BOGOs and total disc sales will eventually cause the demise of HD-DVD. When that day comes, BOGOs go away and we are stuck with high prices. Blu-Ray supporters will complain and slow their spending on titles. Then, the pricing structures will eventually change to encourage spending again. But, it will take the studios a little while to really figure out that the reason software sales slowed after HD-DVD went away was because there were no sales (to offset any HD-DVD threat) and because prices were too high. I can see it happening already.
I haven't benefited from any of the BOGO's , cause I already have all the BD's (367) I want, these BOGO's kick ass for people who can benefit from them ie: My cousin just bought a Ps3 & 42'' Panny!!! so hes on his way:)
