Amazon.com Blu-Ray Price Drops

90

I went to buy Mad Men Season 4 Blu-ray as part of this year's Black Friday sales (as, just like everyone else, I got the first 3 seasons in last year's sales), and while looking to see what other Blu-ray's were available, I noticed a couple of price drops, including some pretty recent movies.

Here's a few of the highlights, mostly from looking at the top sellers list. All are region free, as checked on bluray.liesinc.net:

A couple of good buys in my opinion for those looking to buy a few more items with some of the other Black Friday specials as a way to save on combined postage.

      Blurays from US are Region A if they are locked they will not play for you if they are free then they will use this site http://bluray.liesinc.net/ to see if a title is region free

      As posted above, I've checked the Blu-ray regions with bluray.liesinc.net (and also Blu-ray.com), and the ones I've listed are all region-free. For ones not listed, you should check with one of these sites, their data is pretty accurate.

      As a rule of thumb, Warner Bros. (not New Line or subsidiaries), Paramount and Universal Blu-ray's are all region-free. Fox is mostly region locked, Disney used to be the same but they've changed their policy recently with new releases (like Cars 2 and PotC: On Stranger Tides).

      The DVDs that are included with the Blu-ray sets, if any, are all region-1 locked though.

    Some US blurays are region locked. Search the name of the movie you're interested in before buy

    Amazon.com item details clearly state that the are Region A/1 are they incorrect in stating this for copyright reasons?

      They are Region A but some are also region free, they State they are Region A to cover there arse. Use the sites to see which ones are free the one in the OP are region free.

        Thanks for the clarifying info and the sites to check the Region lock -

        Totally right. When people say region-free they mostly mean discs that are encoded for region A, B and C (sometimes just A and B, but that's enough for us in region B Australia). Only a few discs are actually "region-free" in the strictest sense of the term (that they don't have any region codes).

    I also grabbed Mad Men S4 this morning to go with last years purchases they're all gone now but previous seasons are still available.
    I also picked up Last Boy Scout/Last Man Standing for $9.99 and some other titles

      Have heard good things about it too, which is why I just got it along with Mad Men S4. Best thing is that the Australian version isn't even released yet (available on 1st Dec), and it's already being discounted in the US (and region-free too)!
