i finally jumped in (though maybe i should have waited until November). However the price i got from AMZN (at about 2:30 PDT) was $213.18 which included a $25.00 gift certificate that i was going to use to get an XBOX 360 game (so $238.18 for me price with nearly $20 sales tax included - about $218 real.) The movies i got were all non-combos: The Mummy, Batman Returns and Happy Gilmore. It is a bit more than i wanted to spend, but now i can replace my 8 year old 480i DVD player.

Yeah I thought about upgrading to the prime but I decided not to.

Ordered a few minutes ago, at first it had a ship date of Oct. something for the DVD player, but now it has Sept. 4th and Sept 12th for the DVDs.

I got 300, Departed, and Batman Begins and the A2 for a total of $218.93, I decided to go ahead and sign up for the VISA card so now its $188.93. Not bad

Well, this deal got me off the fence. A2, plus 300, The Departed and Happy Feet for $210. Add this to my Matrix Trilogy HD-DVD which has been collecting dust since the CC misprice, and I've got a nice start. Pioneer 6010 plasma is on the way. Life is good, until my wife kills me...

I jumped all over it. The first thing I did was turn off the automatic renewal, so it's really risk free. It's free and it saved me $35 more dollars in shipping just on that order. In fact I went back and ordered 6 more HD-DVD's afterwards because of the 3 for 2 special and also got free two day shipping on that order.

There is something buggered up with my order. I get a total of $294.78 on the checkout page when I put in the A2 and 3 of the combo discs at ~27 each. It only seems to be applying the 3 for 2 discount and not the bigger 3 free one.

Anyone know of any way to get around this? At one time I was seeing the ~$210 but I changed some movies around. This time I have Happy Feet, 300 and TMNT, all combo discs.

Edit: The deal still works for me with the A20 or XA2, just not with the A2. I notice the difference is that the A2 falls into a delayed shipment status although it shows as in stock. This affects the overall pricing, although it obviously shouldn't. Clearly the A2 is oversold and now they have to play catchup, so the program is probably kicking the shipment to a later date whether it is necessary or not.

If you buy the XA2 and 3 of the recent Warner combos (300, DEPARTED, TMNT, Happy Feet, Fountain, Iwo Jima) the total comes to $533 shipped.

I opted to go that route -- even though I've got most of them already -- and buy copies of 300, Departed, and TMNT which I will unload on Ebay, etc. That ought to drop the price below $499 when all is said and done

Ok....my total came to $210.00 and change. I had a $25.00 GC which was free...did not pay for it so my total is now $185.00. Not interested in 300 as I have this on blu-ray...I will also sell Happy Feet and Departed. Figuring about $20.00 each on ebay will reduce my total to $125.00 for a brand new hd-dvd player. Not bad......

I was looking at getting back into hd-dvd with some of the upcoming releases so this is one heck of a deal. Now I just have to pick my five free dvds even though I will most likely not see these until October/November. I will admit I have been a staunch blu-ray suppporter....had both formats at one time and sold my hd-dvd collection along with player. Now I am back supporting both so I guess we will see where this war goes in the end.

Its funny to see how different the three movies are that people chose today. I took Friday Night Lights, GoodFellas and 12 monkeys and with a coupon I had paid $550 for the XA2! Now I can stop trolling for news on players for 10 min..

Guess who just came back home to HD DVD? YOURS TRULY!

Took an hour of negotiating with my wife - but I will now roll with the HD DVD crew once again.

And Blu-ray. Yep, after all my talking sh*t - it is now safe to say that I will be neutral forever. It's gonna feel wierd not to give a crap about things one way or another anymore. But, at least I can let my weak stomach rest and just enjoy the movies like the b*tch I turned out to be.

Feels funny right now to have sort of "sold out" to both sides - something I never really wanted or imagined I'd do. But with the ability to rent/watch/buy absolutely anything I want in high-def anytime - I think I will manage to get over it...

For less than $213, I got the HD-A2, Batman Begins, Casino, and Poseidon. Trust me, that I will be ordering a crapload more of HD DVD titles before the sale is over too.

Here is what my checkout looked like:

"Item(s) Subtotal: $298.73
Shipping & Handling: $17.62
Promotional Certificate: $0.00
Promotional Certificate: $-5.99
Super Saver Discount: $-17.62
Promotion Applied: $-59.85
Promotion Applied: $-19.95

Total Before Tax: $212.94

Amazon will ship them long before October, they do this all the time to protect themselves from complaints of not shipping on time. I bet it ships by mid september (if not earlier).

They usually leave a lot of room on their predictions. I would not worry about it.
