Black Friday, Deals Tool and Price Tracking

Posted November 16, 2012 06:05 PM by Webmaster

Blu-ray.comThe last couple of years Black Friday has been extended to a longer deals period called "Black Friday Week" (starts on Monday 19th) and ends with Cyber Monday (first Monday after Thanksgiving, November 26th). This means that you should typically see a lot of great price drops the first day of Black Friday Week, Monday 19th, then more price drops during the week and then more great price drops on Black Friday and then some additional price drops on Cyber Monday.

To get the most out of this year's Black Friday Week, we recommend:

1) Set price tracking on Blu-ray movies that you know you really want, you will then be automatically notified when the price drops and meets your target price (this feature requires a registered account, 100% free). Click on the "Set price tracking" button below the title's cover.

2) There will be tons of deals on movies that you had forgotten that you want, or simply can't resist at the low price, this is where the Deals Tool come in handy to help you find and filter out the very best deals that you are interested in.

We have extended the Deals Tool over the years and it now has quite a lot of options and filtering, which is why we have put together a small guide of how to get the most out of it.

Screenshot of the Deals Tool

Main tabs



1. Best Deals
This tab lists all the best deals in popularity order and is the default tab.

2. Newest Deals
This tab lists all the most popular deals in chronological order. Since Black Friday have extended into "Black Friday Week", this tab will be useful to see what new items have just been discounted. All deals and prices are tracked close to real-time.

3. Lowest Prices
This tab lists all the most popular deals in price order. If you logged in as a member and have your settings set to display movies from different countries, current currency rates will be taken into account (updated hourly).

4. Deals by Day
An alternative to the Newest Deals tab, useful if you don't visit the site every day as it display an overview of which day the deals showed up/price dropped.


Layout and country settings



5. Cover size
There are four options for the cover size: "large", "medium", "small" and "thumb". Select the one you prefer, we have set the default to "thumb" to get the best overview of all deals.

6. Country
Click on the country flag you are want to display deals for, options are: United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, Spain and Italy. There's also a globe icon which will display deals from all countries and if you are a logged in member, there's a "B" icon which will display your own combination of customly selected countries and region free titles.


Category tabs



7. Blu-ray
The default Blu-ray tab, will display all Blu-ray deals.

8. 3D Blu-ray
Will only display deals for 3D Blu-ray titles.

9. Blu-ray Box Sets
Will only display deals for Blu-ray box sets.

10. TV on BD
Will only display TV shows/series on Blu-ray.

11. BD Movies Only
The inverse of 10, will only display movies and not TV shows/series.

12. DVD
Will display all DVD deals.

13. TV on DVD
Will display TV shows/series on DVD, can be useful since some TV series are still not available on Blu-ray.

14. PS3
Displays PlayStation 3 game deals.

15. X360
Displays Xbox 360 game deals.


Filters



After selecting the category you are interested in, you can use several filters to find what you are looking for within the category:

16. Popularity
You can optionally filter by movie popularity, the options are: "Above average", "Popular releases" and "Blockbusters".

17. Genre
You can optionally filter by movie genre to narrow down your interests.

18. Studio
You can optionally filter by movie studio (the major ones).

19. Packaging
You can optionally filter by packaging, options are: "DigiBooks", "SteelBooks", "IronPacks", "MetalPacks".

20. Releases
You can optionally filter to display only already released titles or only upcoming titles/pre-orders.

21. Movie rating
You can optionally filter to display movies with a selected movie rating or higher.

22. Video rating
You can optionally filter to display movies with a selected video rating or higher.

23. Audio rating
You can optionally filter to display movies with a selected audio rating or higher.

24. Collection filtering
Logged in members can optionally select to only display price tracked titles "show price tracked titles", or titles that are currently in the wishlist "show wishlist titles" or exclude already owned titles ("filter exact editions" or "filter all editions"). This is especially useful for those with a lot of price trackings or a large collection.


Legend



25. New lowest
A title that says "new lowest" with a red background, means that the price has set a new lowest price record. The title has never been this cheap before.

26. Price history
If you hover above the small graph icon, you will get a complete price history for this title. This helps you decide if it's really a good price or not.

27. Lowest price
When a title says "lowest price" with a grey background, it means that the price has been this low before, but never lower.

28. Coupons
On rare occasions you will see "$x off coupon" with a green background, this means that a coupon is currently offered for this title (usually lasts about a week).

I adore this site, even though its cost me much money! Was extremely useful last black Friday week for getting some smoking deals! And the bluray collection feature is invaluable to me as I have a hard time remembering what movies I have on bluray.

How do you set price tracking to a specific title?

Vote plusVote minus Report as inappropriate

Cinemaniac, search at the top of the page the title you want and when you find what you are looking for, click on it so that it comes up, then under the blu-ray cover picture click on the grey button that reads "set price tracking". After that, there will be a link near the top of every page you visit that says "Price Tracker" and that will be your personal price tracking that you can edit whenever you want and you can keep adding more and more titles as you please.

The prices that are on the tool , are they valid for today only , the entire week, or until they are sold out?

The prices are great but I live in Canada so I am wondering what the shipping charge would be.

McHugh. I just did a comparison, it was about 30$ more on my order from US to Canada with shipping and duty. The order was 90$ in the US.

Silversnake, if I understand you correctly it is still cheaper for me to buy locally because of the cost of shipping and duty?

McHugh, all depends what you order. Good luck finding TV seasons that low even after shipping and taxes locally.

Question: For the deals that were up today, do they last the whole week, day or is it unknown how long?

ie, I want Collateral. Is the price going to stay $5.99 for the rest of the week, or should I order it right now?

@ Weirdusername

Apparently it is indefinite but a good guesstimate would be it'll last for the week (it's Black Friday deals week after all), but not a sure bet. For example, the Avengers was at $15.00 earlier in the week, and yesterday it went back up to $24.95.

Anyway, Collateral was further discounted by $2 since, and is now $3.99, a new low. Safe to go for it now if you haven't already.
