Remember the $195 Sony Blu-ray player from last week? Feh. Amazon has a promotion going that blows it out of the water. In a nutshell, you can save $100 instantly when you buy a Blu-ray player and four Warner Home Video movies. Choose carefully and you can get out the door with all that loot for just $177.78 shipped. Possibly even less.
Start with the player: You can choose the $199.98 Sylvania NB500SL9 (never heard of it, but it comes with an HDMI cable), or the better-known Samsung BD-P1500 for $207.98. I started with the latter, then chose two $16.95 movies and two $17.95 movies from the list of about two dozen titles. Decent stuff, too: Batman Begins, Blazing Saddles, Blood Diamond, and Phantom of the Opera.
After adding everything to my cart, I used coupon code AMAZONBD to get an instant $100 off. Then I chose Free Super Saving Shipping. Out-the-door total: $177.78. Outstanding.
