For those interested, JB Hi-Fi are selling the Boardwalk Empire BD for $26.98. It was in today's Herald Sun but I am not sure how long this is for. I assume it will last until Sunday but you best check to be sure.


Yes its until Sunday as noted on JB site

Yes, Boardwalk Empire is a great show. And that's a great price for the season one set.

So, anyone who bit the bullet and ordered Boardwalk Empire from JB in the past couple of days had their bluray ship?

Not that I am surprised that it hasn't but 3 days for an 'In Stock' item is beyond pathetic.

To be expected - JB you failed to do it again!

Mines still "in progress" and yes it's been 3 days

Target is offering 20% off DVDs and BDs till Sunday. Their ticketed prices are similar to JB so it's not a massive saving but if there's a title you're after, maybe paying 20% less could be worth a visit.

According to another forum piost. Its actually a distributer price cut by half due to poor sales. Even though it was only relesed around 3 weeks ago.

The way Australian retailers and distributors work it may mean there is a mastering error and they are betting most wont notice and a large slice of those who do wont be motivated to do anything about it.

When I used to work for national, multi brand, retailer the strategy for large quantaties of dodgy product quality was to "Red Light Special" them as we knew only a small proportion would be returned ..... sad to say this used to also be done with stock where there was a high possibility we would be advised (health dept, fair trading or others) not to continue selling it .... so managments mantra was :"sell as much as we can, while we can"

Target are having 20% DVD/Bluray off until Tomorrow, as I am sure has been noted elsewhere.

Picked up Johnny English: Reborn triple-play pack from Target for $23.20. It's currently $35-ish at JB.

I found my shipping notice in the junk mail which is a little odd as they haven't gone there in the past.
Ordered 25th recieved item today(30th) which is pretty good seeing as there was a public holiday and weekend in there

Edit - The item was not well padded considering it's a box set in cardboard slipcase I'm very lucky that the slipcase is not dented.

Agree. Purchased mine in store and did notice the slip case is over sized/taler than normal. Due to the size of the limited edition photobook being bigger than the standard blu-ray case.

The DSE website shows some films at $8 if you search for all BluRays and sort on price. Some of the 3 for $30 movies are included in the $8 list.

Under $10 is a good price for any BR movie. Under $20 for a TV show season.

Easy way out. Go to your nearest JB with your mates and buy 3 (or even 6 films) in one transaction.
