Starting this Sunday and going through May 12th, Best Buy is going to have another of their "Upgrade & Save" events. What you do is bring in any DVD in good condition in its original case and they will give you a $5 coupon off the price of any Blu-ray title $9.99 and up (it will probably excuse music Blus like they did last time). You do not have to match the same title for the one you bring in on DVD. You can pick any Blu title. The maximum nummber of DVDs you can bring in at any one time is 5. So, you can do 5 one day, 5 the next, etc.

Barnes and Noble will have its 50% off Criterions sale starting July 10th. Since I already got David Lean Directs Noel Coward and The 39 Steps, I expect The Gold Rush and maybe the Sabu set with be my only purchases.


Also, ImportCDs has a sale on right now for Kino releases, up to 56% off on Blus and DVDs. There are some good prices the $1.49 shipping on each item plus tax (if you live in California), it start to come up in price. It is still cheaper in some cases than Amazon. For example, Bird of Paradise Blu-ray is $13.09, a good price, but then you add $1.49 shipping, plus let's say you buy three items you will be paying $.50 for handling on it. That's $15.08. I would have to pay about $1.20 tax. So that is $16.28. Amazon's price is $19.93, so that is a savings of almost $4, which is okay but not dynamic. But on Lina Wertmuller titles, it is almost an $8 savings. Of course, everything varies depends on price. (You save $11 off Amazon's price for Little Lord Fauntleroy.)

Best Buy's Upgrade & Save deal started again today. Bring in any studio-issued DVD & case, and get a coupon that will deduct $5 off a Blu-ray. For example, they have the single disc Blu of Gone With the Wind on sale for $9.99. With the coupon, they only charge you $4.99. Picked up Mean Streets using this deal and it only cost $4.99 plus tax.


You can bring in 5 DVDs per visit.
