Amazon Deal: 61% off Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures (on Blu-ray)

Today only the Blu-ray collection including the four Indiana Jones movies (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom, The Last Crusade, That Other One) is selling for 61% off.  That's sixty one percent off the list price of about a hundred dollars meaning it is now about 39 ($38.99).  Of course, Amazon never sells anything at list price, I don't know if anyone does, so it's actually more like 40% off the usual price of $64.68.  The point, regardless of the percent off, is that it's a better deal than it usually is today.

Also even taking into account that 61% off list is a little less than 40% off normal and the fact that you're getting stuck with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull which kind of, sort of, sucked, it's still a good deal because the discount you're getting is still 160% of the price of the fourth movie.  (Assuming each movie makes up an equal portion of the usual price.)  Thus today's discount cancels out the cost of having the fourth movie packaged in there and then some.

Good deal if you have a Blu-ray player, and 40 dollars, and don't have the Indiana Jones movies on Blu-ray yet.

Also, $38.99 is enough to qualify for free shipping, so there's no extra shipping to add to the top of it.

  1. Heh, reminds me of when the official ANSI C Standard document cost substantially more than the Annotated C Standard that incorporated it; consensus was that this accurately reflected the value of the annotations.
