- Get a $3 MP3 Credit with Purchase of Select Gift Cards at Amazon.com [9/27]
Our Gift Shop merchant Amazon.com is offering a promotion where you can get $100 off the price of select Blu-ray players with the purchase of four select movies from Warner Bros.
The Blu-ray players eligible for this promotion are (prices are before discount):
- Sony PlayStation 3 80GB ($400)
- Sylvania NB500SL9 ($200)
- Samsung BD-P1500 ($210)
Of these three, I'd have to go with the PlayStation 3. It's the most powerful, it's the best regarded, and it's also a game system. If that doesn't appeal to you, the Samsung would be the best bang-for-the-buck choice. The PS3 can be overkill, and the price knocks it out of range for many people. With its recent upgrade for BD-Live, the Samsung BD-P1500 is a pretty good combination of price and features, and most likely worth the $10 uptick in price over the Sylvania.
The selection of movies is a little weak (click the link above for the full list), but that's just my personal preference. Batman Begins is well worth the purchase price and V for Vendetta is pretty good, but the rest are a little more iffy. I'd probably pick Superman Returns and then finish with Phantom of the Opera (for a little variety).
The page on Amazon doesn't say when the promotion expires, but I wouldn't wait around if this interests you as these promotions come and go pretty quickly.
