Amazon India is also running similar offer i.e. flat 50% off. The price/ discount is almost identical between both flipkart and amazon. Looks like the seller are same.

Amazon.in: 50% Off or more - Blu-ray: Movies & TV

Whatever, it is good for us.

I ordered it, just in case... :p

And they cancelled the order.

Yes even my order is cancelled, mentioned that money will be refunded. The seller called n told that the price was shown by mistake as they were new seller n attaching new server. Oceans triology which I ordered for rs.300 , the same available at Rs.2000 is wat he mentioned.

Mine is still showing 'shipping soon' status. And I am yet to receive any call. :D

So it looks like we all are going to lose 14 days interest of the money we deposited. Let's sue them jointly.

It is great that you are spending a lot and buying so many BDs. I hope you are able devote enough time to enjoy watching them as well.

I am yet to cover my entire movie collection in BDs and DVDs. I am able liquidate may be on an average 3 movies per week. I have been holding almost more than 50-60 movies, which are yet to be seen. So you can say I am sitting on almost 5 months stock. Hence these days I am going slow and just browsing for details of titles and adding them to my wishlist at Amz.com, so that I can order leisurely when the prices are optimum and I can order above $125 (so that I am eligible for free shipping).

I have wishilist of 125$ but when adding to cart the duty is about 45%, is it normal? I think it should be 25-30%...!!!

What is the best time to order from amazon.com? when there is offer like flipkart ? So that, in 125% one can bought as many title as possible. Is it around christmas ?

now 125$ with duty is giving maximum 12-14 BDs. :(

Actually it is like this.

Let's say your cart value is $125. Then add shipping charges- let's say $50. So total is $175. Now the "import fee deposit" (customs duty) collected will be 28% of $175 and not on $125., which will be around $47. So the total is now $222. Now discount the shipping charge of $50, so you need to pay $172. So $47, is around 38% or so of $125 (the basic price of BDs).

Normally their prices goes up and down like anything (it can go as high as, which more than double). Please refer blu-ray.com for price history. So unless you are in a hurry, look for the most optimum price level for a BD before ordering. Normally the boxsets are cheaper so is the older titles. All "NEW" individual release are priced around $20 normally and goes down as time progresses.

Let me give an example, The Mummy Trilogy is now around $25, which came down to under $15. So if you order at $15, then with customs the landed cost will be $20. Thus 3 movies for INR 1400, not bad. Similarly there are lots of good titles available around $5. So for $125 (plus $50 duty), you can get around 20 titles.

But still it will be more than the 50% offer from Indian sites. That's why you should go for International titles, only if the title is not available in India or the Indian version is censored heavily.
