I bit on the tower sale and bought Cloverfield and I Am Legend for $26 something shipped. Slow shipping doesn't bother me at all, if I don't pay for it. Ordering from Deep Discount has prepared me for slow shipping times anyway.

I will say this after studying the USPS tracking. Tower took 8 days to ship the "in stock" movies and the titles shipped from Miami. USPS showed the package at my local post office on Friday evening and my local postman boned me and waited until Monday to deliver. So if he did his job, it would have taken 10 days.

Don't you hate when they do that to you. That's heppened to me several times. The last time just about two weeks ago. I was standing in my kitchen when I saw the mailman in his truck at the end of my driveway. I'm expecting him to bring my package up, or leave it in the mailbox if it fits. Next thing I know he's gone and there's a slip in the mailbox about how I wasn't there to get my package. ********! Then I sign the slip so he can deliver it the next day, and then he doesn't deliver it for 2 more days.

Does Tower.com price match recently purchased items? So of the way Amazon does it. If you buy something at Amazon and the price goes down within a month they will refund the difference.

That would be the cherry on top
No they don't do that but there prices on the discounted BR discs have been constantly cheaper than Amazon.

Tower prices have been great lately. Their website sucks to find deals though, and the prices constantly change

Yeah, she watches every red cent..... That and I've bought 10 HD DVD's with all the deals going on there too....
that was finished almost 2 years ago before we started having children......or in other words, dual income no kids... Now it's one income, one child and possibly another on the way....(too early to tell yet). Anyway, you get the idea, but thanks for the compliment on the basement (I think )

All the MIB copies should have the yellow sticker on the box with the code behind it. It leaves a nice sticky residue behind so I just threw the outer box away. I do not see the point of putting a movie in a plastic case and then adding it into another outer case unless it is a box set.

it's for marketing. they do that all the time in stores, a lot of times it's to make a movie's cover "pop" more, or in the case of target to make it seem like a new version of the movie.

the special edition juno dvd with digital copy has a cardboard sleeve, i believe. best buy is selling it for about $10 more the standard dvd which doesn't have the cardboard sleeve. best buy made about a billion dollars last year -- i bet their customers tend to pick up the ones with the cardboard sleeves which are sold at a higher mark-up.

The cardboard sleeve lets them easily print with metallic paints or varnish to get the customers to go "Ooooooh, shiny!"

I got my MIB from DVDPlanet today and it did come with the MovieCash even though it wasn't advertised as such.

That and the Blu-Ray promo sticker were horribly gooey like cement when peeled off. However, a few sprays from the De-Solv It / Goo-be gone (basically lemon juice, about $2.00 for a bottle) and the goo is easily wiped right off........and your shiny is like brand new again!!

How long did your order take in shipping? Tomorrow will be the 14th day since they shipped my MIB - I've never had a package take so long.

Well, I picked up Rambo, M&CTFSOTW and Signs at Fry's yesterday, but kind of chafed at the pricing and gentle anal probe you receive when leaving. I went to tower.com, picked those up, plus MIB, and still saved $7. So, back these will go to Fry's...

Ordered Cloverfield and 300 on BD (Had it on HD DVD and sold it) from Tower.com on 6/24, shipped today 6/25. Not too bad IMO.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000237181
Deal - Save an Additional $5 on New DVD and Blu-ray Releases (six titles)

The $5 bucks is included in the list price, other than "I AM Legand" its really not that great at all.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000243511
Deal - 2 for $30 - 39 titles

No longer works.

All so for us international buyers i would not recommend Amazon as they charge nearly double for shipping 'vs' the competition.
