Default HD DVD Player - HELP!

Hey guys, I have a huge favor. I can't decide......

I just returned my HD-A2 soon because I got a $50 coupon from Amazon through my credit card.

On a given day, I can get the Hd-A2 for $400 and use the coupon and get it for $350. Then I can buy it from Best Buy. Where I will get %12 off - $460 with tax. Then I can get 4 free HD DVDs from BB and get the 5 from Toshiba = 9 free HD DVDs and then use the $50 to get another few movies for free.
I can't decide what is a better move to make? Can someone help??? LOL

I thought the 4 free HD DVD offer was just for last week. The previous Best Buy sales where they gave away 2 free HD DVDs only lasted for the week's promotion, at least in my town.

So I don't even know if that offer is still obtainable, but I think Amazon would be better. don't you still get 5 movies from Toshiba if you order online?

Best Buy's offer is good, but I don't know if they still have it.

Buy it and get the nine movies, though I would look at the ones you can get for free and make sure they are not ones you already have or ones you dont want.

Yea, I checked, luckily they aren't the ones I have. LOL
But hmm...is it still possible to get the 5 free movies even if I get if from Amazon??? That's a good thought too!

Are there movies that really interest you that you don't have? if not, why not save the money and use it on stuff you are actually wanting.

But then again....if you bought from Best Buy it could help show people love HD DVD? Haha. They can add another "tally" to the number of HD DVD players sold vs. Blu-ray. I'm sure Amazon is getting a lot of sales, but they have treated both formats equally, while Best Buy's have been biased towards Blu-ray.

Well, I have Pitch Black...so I want Chronicles of Riddick.
Constantine I haven't seen and heard was pretty good....
Rundown was good I would want that too
We were soldires or Perfect Storm would be a great choice....

From Catagory C, I'm not sure...I already have 4 brothers...
I'd have to see which I would want more...Lara Croft or Sky Captain (which I haven't seen yet)

Oh and don't forget the 4 free movies from BB....
