Yeah, pretty much. That is why my Amazon stats database updates every hour so that it doesn't fall behind

The sites in my sig are mostly manually updated.

There is a second page there (http://www.blu-raystats.com/amazonstats.php) that keeps track of the Amazon database (I think that is the one that you bookmarked in the first post) and that in turn keeps the bargains and pre-orders page (http://www.blu-raystats.com/amazon.php up to date (which you also bookmarked in the first post I think).

I don't have those pages in my sig here since you are not allowed to have marketing in your sig and I imagine that some might consider those pages to be marketing.

In any case, my Amazon database automatically syncs with the Amazon database every hour. Helps me keep track of what is on sale

I am open to suggestions also to make these pages more useful in general...

Glad you like it. I tried to make the sort and filter criteria the kinds of things people might want to rank their movies by.

Personally I like the colour coding on the Amazon Stats page that gives an indication of the shipping status without needing to go to Amazon.

Hehe, their whole price list seems to be a giant yo-yo. With this thread we can catch it at its lowest point.

Good to see online prices dropping below the $15 dollar mark.

Looks good for the future of BD.

Black Hawk Down is also $13.99 at Best Buy. Yes, on Blu Ray!

House of Flying Daggers is $14.99 at Best Buy, and was tempted to get it as I love the movie, but heard the PQ wasn't that great.

I wonder why BHD is so cheap?

I don't know, but it pisses me off because I bought it two weeks ago for almost twice that at Circuit City.

Deal Hunters 'R' Us! But seriously, all the thanks should go out to ruvic and Phloyd. They got some deal hunting software scanning Amazon for price changes and they are kind enough to share this info with us on this thread. Props!

I changed my search criteria and as a result I now see these savings on cheaper discs that were not evident before.

I think that the Underworld Evolution price is new though.

A Knight's Tale [Blu-ray] $17.95 Savings of 38.0%
Chronos [Blu-ray] $17.95 Savings of 40.1%
Into the Blue [Blu-Ray] $17.95 Savings of 38.0%
Stealth [Blu-ray] $17.95 Savings of 38.0%
Tears of the Sun [Blu-ray] $17.95 Savings of 38.0%
Underworld - Evolution (Blu-ray) $17.95 Savings of 53.9%
XXX [Blu-ray] $17.95 Savings of 38.0%

These don't meet my usual 45% saving criteria but since they are a pretty good deal none the less...

While not a bargain per se, I noticed today that Amazon is showing a bunch of the Paramount titles in stock again (So I ordered a few since I fully expected that they had run out for good ).

Anyways, the best page to look at for this is http://www.blu-raystats.com/amazonst...=20&Images=Yes

Unfortunately I don't have a studio filter on the Amazon page, so it is hard to narrow it down - but this should include most if not all of them. If the colour behind the 'Buy' on the far right is green, Amazon was showing in stock at the last update. It is interesting watching titles go in and out of stock...

Have Fun!
