^^^Interesting. Hmm, well, I want to take advantage of this deal...but then again, which is better:
-Getting 3 instant free movies and *maybe* 5 mail-in
-Enduring the pressure of waiting to see when it is in stock, if it ever really gets back in stock before the deal expires
-Enduring the pressure of waiting to see when it will FINALLY ship and ultimately get to me...which let's face it, will probably be about 4 weeks minimum, if I was able to order it today - which I might not be able to
-lower prices involved in deal
OR...just going to Costco and:
-Getting the player in my hands TODAY so that I can rent HD DVDs at my fairly well-stocked local Blockbuster immediately (haven't seen Hot Fuzz yet...mmm)
-Having the 90-day Costco warranty that will let me trade up for a new A3 or Samsung Dual-Format player...if/when
I get desperate/excited
-Maybe getting the 5 mail-in movies free, but none of the others
-slightly higher prices involved in this decision
-It's a close call. I'd probably be at Costco now if I wasn't so damn insanely busy for the rest of the day. May be til tommorrow before I can actually make a move, and then if the Amazon situation changes overnight...am I back to square 1?
Hah, I guess these are good problems to have. I'm just glad my wife FINALLY agreed for me to put ANOTHER HD player in my HT. She already wanted me dead for my previous BD/HD spending. That was the biggest hurdle...whew...
