I don't know if this is a mistake or not, but Kino's BluRay of Keaton's Sherlock Jr./The Three Ages is on sale for 86 cents at Amazon.

Wow! I just ordered it so I guess we'll find out if it's a mistake. I notice that Red Tag is the actual retailer and it has been known to offer steep discounts but I think this one sets a new record. Thanks Bruce!

TCM is offering a 20% sale...apparently it is just for 5 hours, not sure when it started, I know I got their recent Capra and Precode sets for $10 off the already sale price...

The link:

Use the code "FLASH20" at checkout.

Will post this on talkie deals as well.

I snagged the last two they had at 60 cents. I missed the first go around at 86 cents and wasn't about to miss out again. Then again if I missed out at 60 maybe the price would have dropped to 34 cents??? Oh well, I'll never know! :D

My Keaton set arrived yesterday. It's a nice deal for $0.86, but it is in DVD format, not Blu-Ray.

In-store at Barnes and Noble (at least in Manhattan), all Blu-Ray discs are currently on sale at 40% off. I found out about this sale yesterday after ordering a Navigator Blu Ray from their website (at sale price, as it was listed on the site) set aside for pick up. I got an email saying it was ready for pick up, but it listed the full list price in the email. I went to the store, asked the clerk about it, he said the prices on site were sometimes lower then the store prices, and so the disc was probably not on sale. So I asked him if he would check. As soon as he took out the disc and saw it was Blu Ray he said "oh, all of these are on sale."

On the website, some discs are listed with the 40% off price, and some are not (like the Olive Blu-Rays). So today I decided to pick up some not listed as on sale on the website. I looked around the store and did not see any signs stating that all discs (as opposed to the ones with stickers on them) were on sale. However I just picked up a couple of the Olive Blu-Rays, checked with the clerk, and yes, they were on sale at 40% off, a pretty good deal.

So not the most organized store, but worth checking!

A bargain at twice the price! I wonder if it's to tie in with this month's Oscar presentations.

As I write this, later TODAY, March 13, 2013; THE ARTIST (2011), in Blu-ray and DVD will be on sale at two different times, in Lightning Deals at Amazon (US).

The Blu-ray will be 50 percent off at 2 PM Eastern Time until 4 PM, unless sold out.

The DVD version will be 48 percent off at 4 PM Eastern Time until 6 PM, unless sold out.

Times given on the Amazon site are Pacific time; so these sales are listed as starting at 11 AM and 1 PM, in that zone.

No one knows how many copies are available in these sales, so don't hesitate if you are interested.

Woody Allen movies are the Deal of the Day; some on DVD, some on both Blu-ray and DVD, at "up to" 57
percent off.

Wow --- fantastic deal! If I didn't already have it, I'd buy it instantly. Hmm. Maybe I should get an extra copy to use as a gift come Christmas or birthdays.

Hnng! I think at that price I have no choice. Of course I'll have to find something for free shipping. ;)

Blu-ray is showing $23.51 right now...

But on Amazon they are selling it for $19.99 + $3.99 which comes out to $23.97 (and then $1.97 sales tax) for $25.89.
