The Bruce Lee Premiere Collection - $14.99 at bestbuy.com

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/the-bruce-lee-premiere-collection-blu-ray-disc/25674756.p?id=3285186&skuId=25674756

I found out about this in this thread: http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=246131

Originally the bestbuy link was listed as "Que Amor Bonito" or something but the picture was the Bruce Lee Premiere Collection. A few people on that forum took a chance and ordered and confirmed it's Bruce Lee and not that other thing. I ordered last Monday and received it today. Best Buy have now updated the listing so it says "Bruce Lee Premiere Collection" and they still have it for $14.99

I was planning to get the Bruce Lee Legacy Collection but this was too good of a deal to pass up, and there seems to be a lot of complaints about the book-style packaging of that set.

Also I have added the specs for this.

Used Amazon.UK-s "Bond 50" Black Friday deal (44% off). This time I used our link to get the stuff. :-D

I'm aiming for the Fantasia double feature in 25 minutes depending on price (and if I'm quick enough).

Those Blu-ray boxsets at 1210 look great too, and were £10.99 the other day. Unfortunately, I own some of the titles from each already.

Might look at Grace of Monaco at 1310 but would have to be really cheap for me to go for after all the bad reviews.

3D boxset at 1410 was £10.99 the other day, but again, I own RIPD 3D already, and Immortals is cut.

1510 will go for Bambi double feature price depending. That Coen Brothers set of 5 movies was £8.99 the other day. Again, I own some already.

The Disney double features are often £9 in Disney's 2 for £18 deals, so they need to be £9 or under for me.
I work away a lot but I will reply to all PM's within a few days so please have patience!

Yeah I have to price watch a lot cos the smaller the box set the bigger the possibility to get it cheaper from other sellers. Amazons delivery rates keep my interest low on some releases. :(

Also was a bit interested in Deadwood DVD box set, but noticed that Amazon has Blu-ray coming on March 2, 2015.

Hitchcock box sets would be nice but I want those on Blu-ray :-D altho I already have 1 or 2 separate releases.

Nothing for me in the end from Amazon then. Bambi came in at £12.49 so I decided against it.

I did finally cave in on the Police Academy box set for £11.99 from Zavvi though. I cancelled my pre-order at £25 ages ago after hearing of the DNR'ed transfers, but I'll pick it up at that price.

Be very careful with Zavvi. Last Friday wanted to use their "2 Blu-ray for £8" offer, but after making the order there was no discount the items were still priced the same. Canceled my order right away but to my surprise they refused to cancel it and sent the items anyway. :roll: Only way to get some money back is to send the items back, but they only pay for 15% of postal cost. So basically they F****d up but they would like me to pay some more cos I haven't wasted enough.
I guess they're not doing very well if they resort to dirty tricks like that. So be very very careful with their "offers" and don't place the order if discount doesn't show or you can kiss your money goodbye.

It happened to me too. I remember buying CHiPs Season 3 DVD for $20, give or take from Amazon US last year. Now, it has plunged to just $11.99 :x :x :x

When it comes to making a decision about when to buy a Blu-ray/DVD, it is just like trading stocks. You must have the intuition. Sometimes you profit, sometimes you lose. The most important factor in trying to get a good deal is to be patient, unless we really want the item upon release for certain reasons (limited edition, slipcovers, digital copies, limited bonus disc, and whatnot).
*N=New to collection :-D, U=Upgrade from DVD :), DD=Double Dipping :wink:, R=Replacement for damaged disc :-?
