I can't believe it. Last week I finally bought an A2 from Costco -- after waiting and waiting and waiting... and now I see this deal from Amazon that I missed!

Man, talk about bad timing.

There is good news. If Amazon is giving away 3 free movies with the purchase of a HD-DVD player, then Best Buy and Circuit City will have a sale soon. I doubt Amazon is eating the cost, this is a promo from Toshiba.

Hey think about it this way, you have been enjoying HD for a week more than these other people.
And with all the shipments, it certainly will be backed up.
Some people may not get the item for 2 weeks.
(including me)(although I already have HD players...)

I have no system or life, Please give me yours ;)

The deal's not dead. The A2 is just out of stock. You can still get the same deal on the A20 or the XA2.

The actual deal is not dead, the error deal has been corrected...
My cart (3xHD-DVDs + XA2) was $550.03 this morning. Now it's $679 Oh well!

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

Currently all players are out of Amazon stock, and that is the deal.
If it is stocked by say 6thAveElectronics through amazon, that will not qualify.
So you fellows will need to wait for Amazon to replenish their stock.

No, the actual deal seems to be dead. When I go to confirm, it is charging me for the three HD DVDs. Those were supposed to be free.

HD DVD: 25
Blu-ray: 234
SD DVD: 392

Right now it looks dead. You no longer get the 3 free movies. They also pulled the graphic that mentioned the deal. You cannot get it on any of the HD-DVD players.

I've gotten emails that show "Grand totals" that look like that but then i see emails with the appropriate discounts showing.

As of right now, those DVDs are showing as "in stock". However, I am seeing the HD-A20 and HD-XA2 in amazon's stock as well. It still shows me that the HD-A2 is the only one out of stock.

HD DVD: 25
Blu-ray: 234
SD DVD: 392

Looks like the A2 is sold out again, so it won't show up as the deal and the Xbox 360 addon page looks to be updated to reflect 2 movies instead of 3, haven't tried another order to verify.

You can still get the 5 free HD-DVDs from Toshiba with the A2. The DVD selection is not as good as the 3 free ones.

The 5 free mail in offer is worthless. They cut the boxes and burn the boxes if the title is from Universal.

this is a good deal, regardless... I don't know what's a better deal, the A2 at this price or the PS3 for $349 with the 5 freebies.

I just ordered the XBOX Add-on with 2 copies of 300 and TMNT, and it still worked. $179 out the door for everything.

It's on this forum under a PS3 Thread. You basically get $150 off your purchase when using a Sony Card.

Getting warmer. I see $199 shipped with Complete Matrix and i'm in. I would want the 5 free from Toshiba, too, though (actually one per category I want that I've avoided buying for that reason).

I guess it must be because I have Amazon Prime. I only get the 55.90 discount, nothing else when adding the same items you have listed above. This is even if it is all in 1 shipment. No fair...

55.90 is two movies, they fixed the offer - used to be 3.

They extended it through Sep 30th and will be getting more PS3 60GB units. Plus, most Sony stores still have plenty on hand.

$250 Credit? That would have been nice. How much did you have to spend to get the $250?

Went and looked @ Amazon and the deal is dead on HD and BR except for the 360 add on (well I didnt check PS3 i guess might still have the deal) but only lists 8 movies for 360add on. Either it doesn't have King Kong with it or they are not including it in the offer specs...just mentioning 8 but still is 9. I didn't go into much of the details.
I am so glad I said the heck with it and bought the A2 last night. I was going to wait and get the A3 but this was too good of an offer. I don't even care really if I get the 5 free (i have the sd's of these ones anyway. 218 and 3 movies is still better than BB with 5 free for 299!!! or CC @269. BTW if they recant and charge me back 19.95, I shall raise the dead to their door step, I mean even crutchfield stood by their A2 @199 mistake!! It's my 2 cents and it is worth what you paid for it.
PS...I wonder how many units they sold in the 2 days..200...500...1000?? more than they expected to obviously.
