    I think Amazon is having some sort of sell on HD-DVD's - and it was announced that Kmart will sell HD DVD players exclusively now- going to be an interesting holiday season - Warner may be mulling over a decision right now to maybe support just one format that could be huge in this format war

    Yeah, but won't K-Mart still sell PS3's?? So you could still get a Blu-Ray player seemingly. Although if they're only selling HD-DVD players, I highly doubt you'd be able to get Blu-Ray movies. The Wal-Mart near me pretty much has all Blu-Ray discs, and only a handful of HD-DVD discs.

    If Warner indeed picks, and does so with HD-DVD, I'll be highly annoyed. That is of course unless that Black Friday Sears rumor turns out to be true :D

    I am hearing one of their top execs "seemed" to hint if they went one way it might be blu-ray- I have the HD-DVD addon for my xbox 360 (I primarily like HD-DVD) but have just gotten a used PS3 on ebay for pretty cheap (I am still very mad at Sony for not upscaling all 720p games to 1080i like the xbox 360 does since my tv only supports 1080i and 420p) - my plan is to not buy any blu ray or HD-DVD movies and only rent what I want to watch from netflix until there seems to be a pretty clear winner - personally I am to the point I dont care who wins- just be nice if someone would- course the flip side is they are forcing each other to lower prices and submit a better product

    I wouldn't give a second thought to any rumors about Warner going either way. It's just not worth speculating about.

    Warner Home Video has a 25% Off coupon and Free Shipping for orders over $50. You can find the HD titles by clicking on Advanced Search and checking either the HD-DVD or Blu Ray box.

    A word of warning. Many people are unhappy with the Warner store. Customer service is poor, they don't answer emails (you'll need to call them), and there are bad shipping delays. But if you're willing to wait and put up with bad service, there are some really good deals.

    Amazon.com has dropped the price of the Spider-Man boxset down to $60.95 to match Best Buy's price. But for anyone like me who has the 10% discount this makes the set $54.95.

    Because this was done after the street date Amazon's not automatically matching the price for those that pre-ordered. Thankfully mine hadn't shipped yet so I canceled it and ordered again to get the lower price.

    You don't have to cancel and place a new order at Amazon. Just email them within 30 days of when it was shipped and they'll adjust the price or refund your credit card.

    Check out this site:

    http://www.priceprotectr.com/

    It's free and very easy to use. I've been using it for the last 2 months now, and it's gotten me about $10 in refunds so far.

    ^ Well it had been sitting on order for awhile after release date, and my %10 off hadn't even been applied yet because I placed my order so early. I'd have to wait for the order to ship before I could get the refund. It was either type up a whole paragraph about what was wrong with the order and wait for a response after it shipped or just cancel it and get what I want doing the work myself. I'm a do it yourself'er.

    I got a shipping notice of my order a few hours later, I doubt it would have shipped then if I hadn't of replaced my order.

    Best Buy has the Toshiba HD-A3 Player + 10 HD-DVD discs on sale for $199.

    This comes with two HD-DVD discs inside the box (300 and Bourne Identity). It also includes 3 Free HD-DVD discs (I think it's limited to discs under $35 each). And it includes the 5 Free HD-DVD mail-in offer.

    This is a pretty good deal if you missed out on the $99 player.

    So I decide to do the B1G1F with Vacancy and Ghost Rider when I see that Vacancy has $2 off with Masters of Horror Volume 3. So Here's the math:

    Subtotal of Items: $73.85
    Shipping & Handling: $4.96
    Best Value Savings -$2.00
    Promotion Applied -$7.39
    Super Saver Discount -$4.96
    Promotion Applied -$26.95
    Total for this Order: $37.51

    Three Blu-ray discs for less than $40 bucks. Sweet.

    Sony, yes Sony, is having a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale themselves. If you buy two of the twelve listed between 10/28 and 12/15 at any store anywhere you get to mail in for one of the remaining twelve for free (plus $2.99 S&H).

    I've ordered Ghost Rider from the Amazon sale. I'm thinking about getting Casino Royale, so I've got till the December to see if I can get a deal and perhaps then get another Blu-ray for 3 bucks.
