CrunchDeals: Blu-ray player and four movies for $179


If you’ve been on the fence about getting behind Blu-ray, Amazon has a pretty enticing deal going that may very well push you off the aforementioned fence and into Blu-ray’s well-manicured back yard.

The deal, in a nutshell, is that you buy either the $249 Samsung BD-P1600 or $349 BD-P3600 player and add four Blu-ray movies from a predetermined list, which results in a $125 instant discount when you use promo code SAMSDISC at checkout.

A user over on the forums figured out that the cheapest possible combination would be the BD-P1600 for $249, plus the movies Dark City, Eraser, Under Siege 2, and We Are Marshall for a total of $55, which would equal $305.

Subtract the $125 instant discount and you’re left with a Blu-ray player and four movies — however awful (or wonderful) each may be — for $179. Not too shabby, eh? Of course, you can add more expensive titles (and/or the more expensive player) to your package instead. The deal is good until May 30th.
