Tigerdirect - $129

Buy.com has the new prices.

The A30 is actually $173. Not too shabby. It is $190 delivered. The A-3 is $149 and the A-35 is $299 delivered.

Amazon has the a35 for 299 as well.
A3 147
A30 198.22

HD-DVD: 115 Blu: 6
Latest HD-DVD: All of them at Frys for under $10.

Latest BD: No incentive to pick up discs now that the format war is over. Netflix via xbox and mail is more that sufficient.

Yes, it is, along with $199 for the HDA30 and $149 for the HDA3. Got an email today from the regional retailer I work for.

In case anyone's interested, Amazon's listing a couple of open-box HD-XA2s for $450. I believe they still carry the "new" Toshiba warranty and the usual Amazon 30-day return policy. From the main XA2 listing page, click on the "new and used" link; they're listed under "Warehouse Deals by Amazon".

Robert,

Any chance of seeing any of the XA2s dropping in price or will those still stay the same?

Does anyone know how amazons 30 day price match gaurantee works? I just paid 179.98 but also got in on the deal of pick 3 free, plus 2 in the box free. When I received my receipt it showed a discount of 56.40 showin on the receipt my purchase price after tax and shipping a 144.51 charge, then they put out another recipt reflecting the added price of the discs (which were free) to bring my total up to the 179.98 - is this there way of getting out of a price drop on players, or will they honor the 179.98 price?

I emailed them requesting a price adjustment - we'll see.......

compusa is owned by systemax (who i believe owns tiger direct, too, since the pricing and website now look the same).

but compusa does have a fairly significant number of stores still. will best buy and circuit city start reflecting the new prices as early as this weekend? both BB and CC do 110% price matching i believe (to B&M stores not internet sites -- i.e. Amazon).

I just called amazon and received a price adjustment, I now paid 147.33 for an A3 with a 10dvd's for free offer! (3free 2in box 5mail) Plus I also got in on there BOGO offer for the HD's and received a 30 dollar discount on there credit card signup, which also allowed me to put in a coupon code for another 5 bucks off.

Now I'm down to 147.33 - 30 -5 + 60 for 6 HD's all with free shipping = 172.33 for a high def player with 16 movies. We'll see if amazons price drops more, but I allready feel like I didn't pay enough, considering how great these movies look and sound Too bad they aren't getting the support they deserve, I'd love to see HD-DVD around for a long time, it's a shame really.

I got a BB general manager to price match amazon on the a3......you have to see someone important who cares about the sales goals of the store to match prices for you. Or you'll just get the standard "we can't do that" reply.

rushisrighton, just keep E-mailing Amazon about price adjustment. Every time I saw the price go down, I E-mailed them, they credited me, with no problems at all. Got my A-35 for $279.98 with 12 dvds. (It was supposed to be $299.98, but for some reason they gave me an extra $20? I'm not complaining.)

Thanks

To request a price adjustment from Amazon by email, here's what you do:

1) At the bottom of your Shopping Cart page, look for the Need Help? section and click on Visit our Help Dept.
2) On the right hand side of the page, find Contact Us and click on Customer Service
3) Click on the Email tab
4) Click on Choose Order and Items and find your item
5) Under Issue, choose Other Questions & Comments
6) In the message box, mention the current price and the price you paid, and ask for an adjustment.

This has always worked for me. I usually get a response email the same day, and the adjustment is credited to my credit card in a day or two.
