Hi folks,
This thread is for ALL Blu-ray player sales, special deals (including free disc add ons), price drops, and "where to buy" discussions. Also, please don't post links unless in order to get the "deal" you have to go to some super secret web page not readily accessible from the vendors "store front" on the web. (Some existing threads will be "grandfathered").

Thanks,
larry

The sale price on the 1400 is $399.00 at CC. So if anyone bought one in the past 30 days at CC or BB you can get the price matched.

I assume that Robert's page from **************** is one of the grandfathered sites. It is located here: http://www.*********************/avstc.htm

This is the specials page for AVS'ers.

Yes, "hidden" pages like Robert's are fine, as are any other links to a AVS sponsor web site.

Amazon has the BD-P1400 for $384.98 shipped.

If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a much merrier world.

Closest COSTCO to me that has it (and in fact all COSTCOS in the Bay Area that have it in stock) lists at $449.99 That store is about 20-miles.
ADDED: Well, I just talked to them and apparently there's a $70 rebate, so I guess I'm off to Foster City!!! THANKS AGAIN FOR THE TIP!
ADDED: Got it--- $449.99 - $70 + 8.25% tax = $417.11 W/LIFETIME WARRANTY!!!

Can I hope for a $300 player before Christmas? Sony 300 or Samsung 1400? Cool, now I know a thread like this exists ...

If it's not worth waiting until the last minute to do, then it's not worth doing.

THIS JUST IN:

www.deepdiscount.com has the 80GB PS3 for only $399.

Simply apply the code DVDtalk, and you get 20% off ANY ORDER, including the PS3.

Plus you get FREE SHIPPING.

This is a better deal than KMart because there is NO TAX!!!!!

code, SUPERSALE works as well.

In fact thats the one I used.

Anyway, it beats the heck out of the Kmart deal. I mean there is NO TAX, and no driving around and HOPING that the coupon will work.

This is guaranteed.

Only listing for HD players is the XA1, other than that I saw no mention of the PS3 or any other players.

Thanks for the link, my Kmart was out of stock (and I really didn't want to try my luck with that coupon anyway) so this worked out even better!

Circuit City's website now has the Panny BD10A for $449.99. They also have the 10% off coupon for AAA members. It's a one-time use, which I did a few months ago. But I went to the AAA site again and they sent me a new one, which runs until the end of the year.

I just used the DVD talk Coupon. Deal seems too good to be true. I have a feeling someone over at Deepdiscount is going to catch this and not honor the coupon. Has anyone actually received their PS3 yet?

Well the bastards at Deepdiscount canceled my PS3 order.

Last time, I will ever buy anything from there.

What kind of website doesn't honor their own coupons. I mean if it went through, it goes through. I don't care if it was a mistake, they should honor the orders placed, and then simply fix the problem, so it doesn't happen again.

They expressly state during EVERY sale the 20% off is only good for DVDs. Not pre-orders, not video games, and obviously not video game consoles!

Why in the world you thought the order would go through is ridiculous, much less expect them to honor the mistake, when they repeat the restrictions on the sale every single time, as they do year after year after year. Obviously you didn't bother reading them!

LOL, why in the world they allow the discount to go through on electronics is... how did you put it, oh yes, "ridiculous".

On the front page, it just says, "use the code: SUPERSALE! for 20& off"

If they are stupid enough to let the promotional code work on electronics they should honor it.

Ya, know, its not that hard to run a website. Its not that hard to have the code not work for electronics.

Confident... I checked into it when I bought a D2. Here's the quote from their website:
"Merchandise: We guarantee your satisfaction on every product we sell with a full refund. Exceptions: Televisions, projectors, computers, cameras, camcorders, iPOD / MP3 players and cellular phones must be returned within 90 days of purchase for a refund."

With Amazon's new price, I'm now paying a $47.12 premium for Costco's lifetime warranty. Oh yes, and they include an HDMI cable in the box...
So, I'll have to keep an eye on the price since there is probably a price-point where the Lifetime warranty becomes prohibitively expensive...

Costco did away with their lifetime "warranty" on electronics over a year ago. Read the bottom of your receipt.

Don't know whats coming up at Best Buy, but I've been is several stores and they have stacks and stacks of Sony BDP-S306.

I assume it's going to be a blow out sale.

Instead of having a "Blu-ray Player Special Deals" stickied in the Blu-ray forums, which can often gets jumbled into one messy thread which relatively few seem to like, should AVS create new individual "HD DVD Software and Hardware Deals" and "Blu-ray Software and Hardware Deals" forums where posters can openly submit and discuss special buys, discounts or any other deals we come across and would like to share? I think it would be a great idea instead of the stickied threads in both the HD DVD and Blu-ray forums. What say ye? Please vote here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=939181

There is nothing about a warranty or return policy anywhere on my receipt. I have had this discussion since joining AVS. Costco lowered their "warranty policy" (actually, a "no-questions-asked return policy) from lifetime to 3-months on specifically designated consumer electronics. Dvd players (SD or HD) are not on the list. This was generated by folks who "rent" equipment from Costco. In fact, when I was returning unopened Halloween candy yesterday, the person in front of me returned a three-year-old electronics item (couldn't see the item, but it sure looked like a cell phone, which are on the list, and they took it back)

The specific equipment headings are
