There's a One Week sale (ends on 7/19/10) over at the Warner Brothers store. Buy 5 for a flat discount ($20 for 5 DVDs, $45 for 5 BRs), or buy individually at reduced cost. Shipping is $5 or free if your order is over $60.

Please note that WB does charge tax for your purchase, so depending on what you buy this may be a dealbreaker. For myself, since I live in NY this is a moot point (Amazon charges New York sales tax - boo!)

Anyway, the best BluRay deals can be found in the National Geographic/BBC stuff, as well as the few series they carry.

I'm not going to list the DVDs for the sale because there is quite an extensive collection (283 to pick from)! Just head on over to the sale page to check them out for yourself.

Happy hunting!

If you can't find 5 to buy in that list, you can still get a decent deal by mixing some of the lower priced titles and using coupon codes WRNRBLU (10% off) and SHIPFREE (free shipping $30+)

I was able to get:
Venture Bros. Season 3 + Trick R Treat + Logan's Run + Interview w/ a Vampire = $37.09

On Amazon that would have been $30 + $11 + $10 + $10 = $61

What was the previous cheapest price for the Harry Potter Blu-Rays? Wasn't there a way to get them for $5 each earlier this year? Maybe I'm thinking of the hollywoodvideo.com clearance. I'm pretty sure they've been this price [($45+$5)/5=$10 apiece] at, say, Target at least once since Thanksgiving.

I think he was talking about the glitch earlier in the year. They had a 5 for $45 promo earlier but if you didn't add the 5th blu-ray, you would've gotten 4.95 on certain blu's. That glitch has long been fixed though.

Don't forget that WBShop.com does charge tax on your purchases.

There is nothing wrong paying tax since it only helps your city run :D

I never claimed there wasn't anything wrong with paying tax on the shipment.

If you've never ordered from WBShop.com and you suddenly see tax on the purchase and not expect it, you might be a little surprised. I was the first time I ordered from them.

Just reminding people about it being something to factor into the deal.

Neither of those seems to work for me. Sadly without them not gonna get anything.

:Edit: I guess that probably because they don't stack with the sale. Aha.

They do not list the HP movies on dvd2blu :( Only on the red2blu. I keep checking because I own all but the newest one (bought on bluray) on dvd & was hoping to upgrade.

Shame the selection is so similar to the 5 for 45 sale a few weeks ago - there's a few I'd like to get but no combination of 5 now that I own most of them

Wait, what? If there wasn't anything wrong with it, then what is wrong with it? I'm confused.

Actually, on anything $9.95 and below, the WRNRBLU and SHIPFREE coupons are a better deal. Since buying 5 blus will only get you to $45, you'd have to buy more at "regular prices' to get free shipping. And on those movies, you're only saving $1 anyway...which gets added right back with the shipping charge.

Example
5 $9.95 blus for $45 + $5 shipping + tax (7.75% for me) = $53.04 (or $10.61 per blu)
4 $9.95 blus with 10% off + free shipping + tax = $38.22 (or $9.56 per blu)

So, really, the 5 for $45 is only a deal on the $14.95 movies.

I clicked on WB's $5 for $45 Blu-rays and they only list 15 mostly crappy titles.

Not in my city. Taxes keep going up, spending keeps going up, and the incompetent politicians that keep getting re-elected won't cut anything so they just raise the taxes some more. Have you ever heard of a skybridge tax? I have.

You have to follow this link (the one in my original post) to get to the page with 54 titles. For some reason, one of the links they have on their website only lists 15 titles.

Yeah same thing with me I have 5 DVD's in my cart, but it's charging me regular price for each one.

Damn Venture Bros. Season 3 is a steal at this price. I bought just that for 9.99 even with the shipping its half off amazon.

Alright... It doesn't seem to be working for the HP BluRays. It works if I add 5 Robin hood to my cart, but not the HP movies. Kind of annoying...

I bet a lot of those Robin Hood sets end up on ebay. I've never seen them go for that cheap, and most BBC shows stay fairly high in price.

Yeah I was going to grab one myself since I did enjoy the first season. Really wish season two would get released on Blu but can do without season three.

Season 3 spoilers....

You didn't miss anything, one of the most disappointing endings ever to a show. They did at least add Tuck, but then that ending just blew it.

According to SD, it now only applies to $9.95 BDs. Which means that you can buy 5 $10 BDs for ... ::drumroll:: ... $50.
Amazon.uk has HP 1-6 BD for ~$50 USD. Now, to see if the free college Prime works on Amazon.uk
