I agree. The Amazon thread served it's purpose quite well, AMAZON.com deals and price fluctuations.

damn, now i dont have excuses not to buy the fox titles i been wanting. hmm to order or not to order F4:RotSS. i'd preorder the DH set if the 4th one isnt edited.

maybe can wait til shrek 3 comes out and see if there's another BOGO sale and if Fox join in on it. i wouldnt be surprised tho if these new prices are permanent as a result of how much volume was moved during the BOGO week.

I also appreciate the often thankless job that the Mods do, but this thread is too cluttered and will remain cluttered, as the Mods merge the newly created "sales threads" into this one.

If you wish to keep abreast of the upcoming sales, you will have to keep an eye on this thread, without missing a beat.

Add me to the list of people that think this one giant thread is a bad idea. I hate having to read through a gigantic thread just to find the latest deals.

It would be alright as long as the first post were updated on a regular basis to have only the relevant deals.

302 Blu-ray Discs and counting.

I am going to send a PM to DrDon (the Mod) of these forums to let him know that we find it tedious to go through a giant thread like this, with lots of already redundant information and obsolete sales links. If you agree, would you please let DrDon know about your collective sentiment on this issue.

If the first post would be updated with any new deals, then things would be better. Very hard to find a deal in this thread unless you check it constantly.

I would be careful doing that. Knowing AVS they could throw all of the special sales price threads into an exclusive area, make you pay for membership to it and bann you from posting sales in public. Dont ruin a good thing.

Then let this be an FYI to all those who are constantly ruining this thread with their "I got 10 BDs yesterday", "well I got 12 HDs today", "well my I got20 BDs and 20 HDs plus a free Spiderman condom". This should be just for posting deals with NO comments. Just like the Hi-Def News Thread which most people abide by...

Maybe this thread can be erased and start fresh again...

If you're going to get the spidey set at BB, there's a 10% off movers coupon floating around over at slickdeals. Got the set for 54.89 +tax this morning. YMMV.

I heard back from DrDon and although I am not prepared to post his PM in here, I can say that he was basically in agreement, but he also did not want a multitude of mini threads about sales in a section which is dedicated for discussing software.

DrDon was also amenable to the idea of making a weekly/bi weekly/monthly thread regarding the sales thread, instead of one gigantic super thread. However, I concur with him that the persons who start such threads, are responsible for alerting him to organize the thread and for the rest of us to alert him of any other changes.

Its just a big thankless job

I am having difficulty finding it also. There is one that appears to be for appliances etc, not small things like DVD/BDs...

Any further pointers appreciated...
